What's Inside Your Chocolate???

The Joke is on HIM!

I sell OG Coffee, Tea & Hot Chocolate that are infused with Ganoderma, an Asian healing herb, and I had a good chuckle to myself when, on one occasion while offering my products for sale to a goodly gentleman, he remarked in a rather superior tone, "I dont drink coffee because of the caffeine. I just drink herbal tea and cocoa tea (this is a hot beverage made from dried cocoa that is then ground and set in the shape of balls for storage).

"Why did I chuckle to myself?

Well the cocoa beverage that he was referring to contains caffeine, although in lesser amounts than coffee.

How is all this related to CHOCOLATE? BIG surprise! Chocolate DOES contain caffeine, as you will find out in this interesting article about just 'How Much Caffeine is in Chocolate' because it is made from cocoa. Bingo!

Should you stop eating chocolate then? Absolutely not!!! Eat everything in moderation, especially chocolate, since it does have a tendency to become addictive due to the caffeine which it contains and which is a stimulant.

This also explains why it is marketed as a Valentine 'must-have'. Yes, it does that kind of stimulation too!

While you're here, take the 3-part Quizz below to find out some interesting and little known facts about Chocolate through the ages right up to today!

How Well Do You Know Chocolate?

How do you like your chocolate? Sweet? Bitter-sweet? Semi-sweet? Dark? White? Milky?

And you say that you're a chocolate lover? Well, how well do you know your beloved Chocolate?

Take this 3-part Chocolate Quizz below to find out some fun, interesting and little known facts about Chocolate right through the ages to today!

      What an interesting lens! My best chocolate experience was in France in 1987, when I went to Paris and found a confectioner's shop that let you sample the wares before buying. It was utter heaven, but I spent two days worth of my holiday money in there...

      I was in Germany at the end of 1999, and the Milka chocolate company came out with a 2000 gram chocolate bar, roughly the size of a board game. I ate two before New Years. So bad for me, and yet soooo delicious.

      I'm not much for quizzes, but I enjoyed these. I did great. I guess I know chocolate, but I'm not sure why :). A chocolate experience....I must have one. Yes. I had been in Russia, and just arrived in Helsinki. I didn't think I was going to get out of Russia....crazy story, but my passport had been confiscated by the Russians. I was so very happy to get to Finland, and when I arrived in my room, there was the most wonderful chocolate. The food in Russia was not very good....you don't go to Russia for the cuisine. I think the first thing I ate in Finland was that chocolate bar, and it was the best tasting chocolate I have ever had. Great lens. I have some chocolate truffles in the kitchen. Gotta go....

      Lots of interesting chocolate facts, I didn't do too well on the quizzes unfortunately. My favorite chocolate is Cadbury's - but not the awful version made by Hersheys, the real Cadbury's that is made in the UK. It's so smooth and less waxy than Hershey's.

Since you're a pure dark chocolate lover I will recommend the Grenada chocolate (see the link I am attaching) http://www.grenadachocolate.com/ It is made from organic dark chocolate and the various percentages are delicious. My favourite is the 60% Nib-a-licious which has small flecks of actual cocoa. Try it and tell me what you think.

      I love dark chocolate. What I find more frustrating now is that dark chocolate bars often include milk, i complained to Marsden once (makes Bounty bars) and they stated that it was to appeal to people who like milk chocolate.......isn't that what the milk chocolate one is for????The only one I can eat now is Fry's and what I want is for them to bring back the five flavoured one!I do enjoy booja booja chocolate but as a student I'd need a loan to be able to afford them....one day :)Great lens, so informative and i did rubbish on the questions so will be back to try again soon :)
