Read it here: eating chocolate is linked to slimmer bodies. And not only that, there are five, count them, five additional health benefits!
Therefore, I am planning to throw out all my previous chocolate superstitions:
1) that eating chocolate is a guilty pleasure best conducted in private; 2) that limiting myself to ONE chocolate treat is safe in terms of calories and proof of strong moral character; 3) that chocolate cheesecake is the treatment of choice for any emergency, but is addictive and must be used with extreme caution; 4) that chocolate milk may never be consumed by anyone over the age of eight, and then only at birthday parties; 5) that Breyer’s heavenly hash ice cream is the only viable argument for believing in an after life; 6) that the aphrodisiac qualities of chocolate will keep me looking and feeling sexier than seventy; 7) that it is okay to buy a chocolate easter bunny if you promise to eat only the ears and to share the rest; 8) that it is more refreshing to drink a gin and tonic than a “brown cow” made with Kahlua because chocolate moustaches are unattractive; 9) that chocolate chip cookies are acceptable but chocolate chunk cookies are not; 10) that I may never eat nanaimo bars while they are still frozen.
My mother was, and her lifelong craving for chocolate was a burden not to be taken lightly.
