“I never knew a chocolate that I did not like.” (Deanna Troi in Star Trek: The Next Generation).
Well said. Even in the XXIII century, women love chocolates. They love chocolates; No doubt about it. Seventy-five percent of chocolate purchases are made by women. They consume more than 2.3 billion pounds of chocolate (about 12 pounds per person) and spend nearly $ 12 billion (twice as much as all non-chocolate candy combined) each year in the state of California alone. Unite (people in Switzerland consume almost twice as much). They really love chocolate, and some even say that chocolate is better than sex or men!
So why do women love chocolate? Is there a scientific explanation for this love of chocolate? Scientists have been working on it for a long time and they still don’t know exactly what’s going on. Some scientists thought that a certain chemical found in chocolate simulates the same brain chemicals that increase when you are sexually aroused. This theory, however, was not true, since the chemical in chocolates disintegrates quickly in the stomach.
Another explanation put forward by scientists is that when you are happy, you generate another type of brain chemical (or the other way around; if this chemical is created, you feel happy). Unfortunately, this chemical breaks down very quickly and many people cannot stay “high” for long. Two types of chemicals found in chocolate slow down this breakdown and keep people happy longer. These chemicals actually work in a test tube, but no rigorous oral consumption experiments have been done so far, and it may turn out that it’s not a real reason.
A widely accepted theory is that since the high fat and sugar content were essential to cavemen survival, these two essential needs (which abound in chocolate) create “satisfaction” at the brain’s hunger center. and they make us happy. Some experiments indicate that this “effect” is stronger among women, especially among women with a history of binge eating.
In short, scientists still don’t know exactly what is going on in our brains (especially women), when we consume chocolate, even though we actually observe the effect. However, I have a totally unscientific explanation for why women love chocolate.
When you put a piece of chocolate in your mouth, what is the most pleasant aspect of chocolate? I think this is how chocolate melts in your mouth. A piece of chocolate slowly softens on the tongue. It has a warm and silky feel like a lover’s kiss. Melted chocolate envelops your tongue and the fragrance of sweet cocoa stimulates like lovers’ bodies. Yes, it is almost like the prelude to the most sensual love affair. It’s no wonder women like chocolate (more than men love; chocolate is a perfect kisser!).
There is no doubt that chocolate is one of the best options for Valentine’s Day gifts, but are all chocolates equally good for a gift for someone special?
According to my unscientific theory, melt is the most important factor, then taste. What types of chocolates best provide these qualities? I think chocolate truffles are the best option. They are made from cocoa and fresh cream. They melt like butter. Due to the melting, the chocolate releases its flavor quickly and the fragrance fills your nostrils and stimulates the entire body. It is truly an exhilarating experience to taste chocolate truffles.
If you want to go further, get organic chocolate truffles, which tend to be much tastier than any other organic product. In fact, once you try organic chocolate truffles, it’s hard to go back to regular chocolates. There is no doubt that organic chocolate truffles are one of the best options on Valentine’s Day.
