    Can it be true – chocolate makes you smarter?

     

     

    Don’t worry we haven’t slipped into chocolate induced hysteria here at Choc on Choc, a new study has found that ‘chocolate makes us smarter’.  No Really.  In an article featured in the Telegraph it claims that a new study has found “eating chocolate was strongly linked to superior brain function” and was also shown to increase memory.  They go on to mention that this isn’t the only benefit associated with eating chocolate, it has been shown to reduce the risk of heart attacks and stroke, stave off dementia and even help you lose weight according to the

  3. The End of an Era!

    The End of an Era!

      

    Many of us know well the familiar wrappers and shapes of a box of Cadbury’s Roses, whether they be carefully placed on a coffee table or liberally strewn across the floor after a Christmas gathering.  The satisfying twist of both ends of the wrapper have become somewhat of a trademark since Cadbury’s introduced their first box of Roses in 1938.  However, they have said this week that these will be replaced with the more modern tear away wrapper much to the upset of chocolate traditionalists everywhere.

    Unlimited Chocolate.  That is All.

     

     

    Something truly magical has appeared online – a video of chocolate seemingly appearing out of thin air!  The clip shows that each time a bar of chocolate is cut in certain places and put back together there is unexplainably a square left over.  Whilst we are sure you can understand the joy this brought to a chocolate factory full of chocoholics an article in The Metroexplains how this sorcery works.  When cutting the chocolate, a slice is actually removed equal to the volume of a square, so when one is left over the amount of chocolate it contains has just been displaced
