treat

December One, the first day of jingle bells Christmas month. Okay, for today lets talk about something light, something interesting both for kiddoes and for adults who are not sexually active.
Tadah, the magical treats of

Chocolates


Oh gee, I’m a certified chocoholic, an addiction –“Once you consume chocolate, chocolate will consume you”. And sometimes chocolate is better than sex. Dr. Ruth Westheimer says that “the taste of chocolate is a sensual pleasure in itself, existing in the same world as sex... For myself, I can enjoy the wicked pleasure of chocolate... entirely by myself. Furtiveness makes it better”

So before we talk about the interesting tidbits about Choc-ohh-late, lets review these facts:
First and foremost, you gotta know that

Chocolate is a Vegetable

, believe or not,

LOL


Where does chocolate come from? Actually, it DOES grow on trees. It all starts with a small tropical tree, the Theobroma cacao, usually called simply, "cacao." (Pronounced ka-KOW. Theobroma is Greek for "food of the gods.")
What are the health benefits of chocolates? Many, many!!! According to Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, if one swallows a cup of chocolate only three hours after a copious lunch, everything will be perfectly digested and there will still be room for dinner. It’s

good for digestion

Some says that a nice box of chocolates can provide your total daily intake of calories in one place. Now, isn't that handy? So it’s an

instant energy supplier

Chocolate causes certain endocrine glands to secrete hormones that affect your feelings and behavior by making you happy. Therefore, it counteracts depression, in turn reducing the stress of depression. Your stress-free life helps you maintain a youthful disposition, both physically and mentally. Meaning to say, Chocolate is an

Anti-depressant

Here’s one great news that I’ve learned about chocolate, way back high school, the mighty power of chocolates - Scientists have proven that dark chocolate has the same type of

flavonoids

that

antioxidant

rich foods such as green tea, red fruits and vegetables, and red wine do. High blood levels of flavonoids contribute to good cardiovascular health and may lower the risk of heart disease and certain cancers. Nutritionists are quick to point out, though, that the antioxidant benefits of a bar of chocolate can be achieved with far fewer calories by having steamed vegetables or a cup of green tea instead. See? But later on, I’ve read that proteins deactivate/alter the function of flavonoids as antioxidant, so it’s recommended to eat

BLACK Chocolate

Got it buddies? Weeeeeeeeee…..

Before I say goodbye, lemme tell you this gossip, Did you hear about the affair between Mr. Goodbar and Peppermint Patty? They had a baby, Ruth.

And with the reliable statistics:
“A new British survey has revealed that 9 out of 10 people like Chocolate. The tenth lies.”

And with this inspiring quote:
Strength is the capacity to break a chocolate bar into four pieces with your bare hands - and then eat just one of the pieces

Oppsie, before you indulge yourself with bon bon, drop a gift for me amigo!!!
