If your secret fantasy is to drown in Willy Wonka’s chocolate river, you are at the right place. Think of a chocolate’s milky and mahogany colors, creamy and crunchy textures; the intoxicated sensation when it melts in your mouth; the bitter, sweet and salty notes that hit your tongue; and the hard-to-let-go aftertaste. Ah, the delight of devouring the greatest discovery made by man is happiness unparalleled. Its like your best friend and lover rolled up into one tasty package.
Bon appetite chocoholics, as you identify with the list below:
1. Over indulgence is not a thing
Too much chocolate. What’s that? You let go of control when it comes to eating these bundles of joy. And you don’t regret a thing.
2. You order anything at a restaurant that has the word chocolate in it
You start drooling over a menu that has the word ‘chocolate’ in it, multiple times. You never go back to a restaurant that doesn’t serve a chocolate dessert because the only fondue that matters is chocolate!
3. Black or white – you don’t discriminate
Comparing the benefits of dark versus white chocolate, is like a dog trying to catch its own tail. It gets you nowhere. Discriminating against little white pillows of heaven is a sorry crime. Black, white, Lindt or Cadbury, they are all worth it.
4. You want to punch people who say, “Chocolates are not healthy”
Let’s ponder upon the equation: Health = Happiness = Chocolate. A balanced diet is indeed chocolate in both hands, eh? Besides, try eating one when you are upset or angry. It is the voluptuous anti-depressant that makes all your problems disappear. Accept the truth people. Chocolates heal, soothe, enlighten and make everything better.
5. You don’t trust people who say, “I hate chocolates”
Did you just claim that you don’t like chocolates? Either you are lying or you have a severe undiagnosed disease of the tastebuds. Go figure.
6. You dip everything in chocolate, because everything in chocolate is amazing
You know that strawberries are divine when dipped in chocolate, but so are vegetables and pretzels. Yes that’s right. Carrots, asparagus and broccoli taste much better when covered in chocolate. Ranch dressing can be a hit or miss, but this can’t.
7. You insist on a chocolate cake for every friend’s birthday
Its not a celebration unless chocolate is involved. Chocolate or vanilla or lemon, what’s to think about? All other flavors can go home. You can’t wait for the candles to be blown off, the birthday song to be over and the cake to be sliced into big pieces.
8. Sharing and chocolate are two words that don’t belong together
You don’t have to be a mother to realize that giving up your baby is painful. Well yeah, its the same with chocolates. Sharing is caring, but not when it comes to chocolates. It is quite alright to be shamelessly selfish at times. Suggestion: find a chocolate twin when you dine to avoid uncomfortable situations.
9. It is acceptable to eat chocolate at any time of the day
Belgian waffle with chocolate syrup or chocolate chip granola for breakfast. Chocolate coated pizza for lunch. Chocolate fudge cupcake for afternoon snack. Dark chocolate peanut butter brownies for dinner. You are open to enjoying deliciousness throughout the day. Don’t judge.
10. You have secret hideouts for chocolates
Be it a pocket in your purse or a corner in your kitchen, you have a supply of chocolates, for emergency of course. Bonus euphoria when you find one out of the blue, in a forgotten hideout.
In a world of uncertainty and chaos, if there is one thing we can count on, it is the luscious ambrosia called chocolate.
