Sucking on Chocolate? Yeah, Sucking on Chocolate!
Thursday, March 27, 2014
I am an unapologetic chocoholic, so whenever I see an SP article on this fine food I read it! A few weeks ago I read an article that, among other things, suggested that we should suck chocolate like candy rather than eat it like food. I decided to give this a try, but at first I didn't like it. I was too impatient and wanted my shot of dark-chocolate-joy sooner rather than later.
But I hung in there and soon learned that this is a much better technique for (1) truly savoring chocolate and (2) making the joy thereof last all the longer. So nowadays here's what I do: I take two squares of Lindt dark chocolate (chili is my favorite flavor) and break them into four pieces each, for a total of eight. After lunch and dinner, I slowly suck on each piece until it naturally dissolves in my mouth, and voila, 15 minutes of dark-chocolate-joy!
So, are you a chocoholic, too? Give this technique a try and let me know what you think!
