ALL CHOCOLATE - ALL DAY!

I was having a conversation about men and relationships with my friend Debby the other day and in the course of our discussion I told her , "I'd much rather have some good chocolate than bad sex any day!"

Think about it - chocolate releases all sorts of interesting things into your body that stimulate the pleasure centers in your brain and just plain make you feel good:
  • Chocolate contains phenylethylamine which is a chemical that is released naturally in the body when you're in love.
  • Chocolate contains dopamine and serotonin, both of which alleviate pain and raise pleasure levels.
  • Chocolate contains theobromine (also known as xantheose), a chemical stimulant which is a mood elevator. Theobromine is the reason chocolate is toxic to dogs and horses, by the way.
  • Theobromine actually translates to "food of the gods." in Greek: theo ("God") and brosi ("food")
  • Chocolate does contain caffeine but only about half as much as compared to theobromine and caffeine is another stimulant.
The melting point of chocolate is slightly below human body temperature so it melts in your mouth for an extremely sensual experience. It's sweet, makes you feel good and it never dates your cousin or your best friend! It's available in almost every retail outlet, you can cook with it, make cocktails with it and give it as a gift!

Throughout the history of chocolate people considered it to be an aphrodisiac:
  • The Aztecs considered all chocolate an aphrodisiac and all foods made with chocolate were forbidden to women! (Dear God, no wonder their civilization crumbled and disappeared - how stupid do you have to be to deny women chocolate?!?)
  • The infamous lover of history, Cassanova, called chocolate his "elixir of love".
  • Madame du Barry, famous French courtesan and mistress of King Louis XV, served a "cup of chocolat" to her paramours before adjourning to the boudoir.

  2. Joyce - Chocolate is rich in history and love as well as yumminess!

    I always found it interesting that chocolate was originally treated only as a savory flavor as opposed to a sweet one. The Aztecs used it as a beverage and spiced it but did not add sweeteners (and it was reserved for royalty only). I often wonder if chocolate would have become the sensation it is if sugar had never been added to it!
