Oooh! I love chocolate.....
Fave choc cake - just plain chocolate, choc sponge with choc icing... in fact thats what I am eating right now!
Happy Chocolate Day everyone...
Now, I had to share this with you all...
Part of the pleasure of eating chocolate is due to the fact that its melting point is slightly below human body temperature: it melts in the mouth. Chocolate intake has been linked with release of serotonin in the brain, which produces feelings of pleasure. A study reported by the BBC indicated that melting chocolate in one's mouth produced an increase in brain activity and heart rate that was more intense than that associated with passionate kissing, and also lasted four times as long after the activity had ended. Research has shown that heroin addicts tend to have an increased liking for chocolate.
Recent studies have suggested that cocoa or dark chocolate may possess certain beneficial effects on human health. Dark chocolate, with its high cocoa content, is a rich source of the flavonoidsepicatechin and gallic acid, which are thought to possess cardioprotective properties. Cocoa possesses a significant antioxidant action, protecting against LDLoxidation, perhaps more than other polyphenol antioxidant-rich foods and beverages.
Can you believe these adorable shoes are made from chocolate... such believable replica's - you'd think someone could pick it up and fit it on...
Cheers... have a stunning chocolate day!
