Chocolate calamity…

leave a comment »

I-40 in Arizona,  east of Flagstaff,  was rendered impassable by a tanker truck spilling its load of  liquid chocolate.   I don’t imagine that made travellers any happier,  but I’m sure the hazmat team was quite pleased.

Sweetest spill…

leave a comment »

A German chocolate  factory spilled  enough chocolate to fill a street before the firefighters of Werl arrived and shoveled it all up.   Apparently no one was tempted to race them to the tasty disaster,  and it seems there will be sufficient supply for Christmas.

Cadbury Easter…

leave a comment »

After getting whacked last year,  British chocolatier Cadbury  is back  to its century-old tradition of using “Easter” in its advertising.  I’m happy to see this reversion to tradition,  and a stand against the anti-Christian barkers.  I’m also pleased because Cadbury makes delicious chocolate which I can now resume enjoying!

How  could Cadbury  drop “Easter” from its traditional “Easter Egg Hunt”?

Chocolate lovers rejoice!

leave a comment »

If your favorite chocolate had only half as much sugar,  yet tasted the same,  would you be happy?   I’d do cartwheels,  and the Nestle company has found a way  to achieve  just that by altering the structure of the sugar.   My taste buds and I will enjoy every extra morsel in a little more than a year,  but we will be the final arbiters as to whether the promise of the claims is met.

Chocolate rules!

leave a comment »

Hail another moment of what should be red-faced embarrassment for scientists,  health food addicts,  and government decrees!   It turns out that people who  eat chocolate  at least once a week see their memory and abstract thinking improve.

It’s good for your heart,  reduces stroke risks,  and helps protect your skin from the sun.   Eat more chocolate!

This is my idea of a true dream machine  —  a 3-D printer  which prints  in chocolate!   Stop that — it is a real machine.
