What is it about chocolate that makes a body feel better I asked myself as I unwrapped a Hershey’s Extra Creamy Milk Chocolate with Toffee & Almonds Nugget.
The answer: Nothing, it just distracts the mind from whatever ails you. The flavor explodes on your tongue and immediately your mind shifts from whatever drove you to the secret (or not so secret) chocolate stash to the flavor of said chocolate alone. It’s a double-edged sword – short term flavor distraction – long term weight gain.
I’ve just now decided, chocolate is to my generation what cutting is to the current generation. Now that’s an encouraging comparison, don’t you think?
