A neurologist's ode to chocolate
by Dr. Meredith Golomb, from Stitches (December 2001)

I like chocolate, milk, and dark,
As cookies, brownies, cakes, and bark,
And I've searched Medline just to find
How chocolate helps the heart and mind.
Its flavenoids, high concentration,
May prevent bad oxidation.
And some polyphenols act
To inflammation counteract --
They may some active platelets soothe
To make disordered blood run smooth.
Thus, some say (And do not joke)
That chocolate may prevent a stroke.
Do not forget -- relief from stress
A dose of chocolate may address:
A phenyethylamine high
Will make your flagging spirits fly.
Caffeine with theobromine may
Brighten up a dark, sad day.
Should I question funding now
Of this research? I see how
The grantors -- Hershey, Nestle, Mars --
All produce nice chocolate bars.
Will chocolate truly fine health bring?
Who cares? It makes my neurons sing!

Ah, Cadbury. I once wrote to them complaining about the level of chocolate on their 'Animal' biscuit bites, and I got a letter back with a scientific explanation that the chocolate is now smooth rather than ridged, so give the appearance of less chocolate but the recipe and amount hasn't changed.

And 3 in vouchers for free biscuits, bless their chocolate socks.:D

The one I bought has two halves - one white chocolate, one milk. I'm not sure whether to use the whole thing at once, or just one half. It smells beyond divine.

Oh, and another tip - use cocoa butter body lotion after a bath or shower. You'll want to eat yourself.

Not sure how may be a different recipe or something but the UK and the US Cadbury's mini eggs are vastly different. Maybe I can organise to have some sent over to you at easter time. In the UK the Cadbury mini eggs only come out for a few months over easter then they are gone until the following year! Well that's how they use to be!!!!

Amadei's Chuao is the world's best chocolate. All of the chocolate you are talking about is industrial tripe compared to this. The Tessieri's (brother and sister) make chocolate about 40 kms from Florence and are considered the best chocolate makers in the world. It will cost you about a 100 bucks for them to ship you some but you will never eat any of that Target crap again. Life is too short.

My husband hates kit-kat, but loves Kit-Kat Chunky (which you can't get here in the states...at least not that I've found). So every time I fly over to Europe I bring him back a bag full of Kit-Kat Chunkys...but he eats them 10 in a day! Ugh! All that lugging and making sure they don't melt, and he eats them in one sitting. No idea how that guy is skinny as a frickin' rail!

Oh, and another thing...what is up with American Milky Way? They are HORRIBLE and totally different than the Milky Ways in Europe. Those are something I miss, the hubby too, as Milky Way was his fav candy bar back home in Vienna.

As fellow chocolate-eaters, please confirm this for me. There is such a thing as "chocolate addiction", right? My housemates told me I was talking bollocks (after blaming them for driving me toward chocolate-eating); but I swear to you, there are times when I really need it.

I've recently taken a fancy to dark chocolate, as it's supposedly good for your heart in small amounts. Usually I'll buy Kit Kat Chunkies and Snickers bars. Toffee Crisp and Lion also hit the spot. And A-effin'-men to Mini Eggs and Creme Eggs!

I've cut down lately though. Partly due to the cost, partly due to the strain it may put on my health in the not-too-distant future. Chocolate digestives and those Tunnocks Caramel Wafer bars are pretty cheap (Avg. 70p per pack), sufficiently filling, packed with a good amount of fibre to justify a binge, and also constaining just enough sugar-based nourishment to keep me happy.

And by the way, I HATE posh chocolates. One of my housemates is part of this chocolate tasting club, and for 30 quid a month or something ridiculous they send him a tray of the latest delicacies in the mail. He's not keen on booze so he let me try a rum truffle. I could barely taste the rum, and couldn't really taste the chocolate at all, despite it being 60-70% cocoa. It was just... bland.
