If I talk about myself grabbed with the uncontrollable desire for something sweet, it has not done with me yet, but YES, it has happened for chocolates for sure. It must have happened with you too. And in those times, a small piece of chocolate is just what we need to satisfy our sweet craving.
Do you know, what the ‘feel good factor’ in chocolate is? It is the amino acid tryptophan, which is also a component of the ‘feel good hormone’ serotonin. This hormone affects the brain and can lift a person’s mood instantly. So I feel, chocolate can sweeten a bad day, to some extent. The next time you feel bad, take a piece of chocolate and enjoy it.
Wait, wait! I have a tip of how you can enjoy it fully. Try this little experiment, first think about the piece of chocolate, now smell it. And, then let the chocolate slide under your tongue and then over to the left and then, the right cheek. Savor the taste. Allow the rest of it to melt gradually in your mouth. So tell me, Did you enjoy it? I know, Yes. 🙂
Let me end the topic now: So, you know the famous and top brands of chocolate now, I would want you to try them at least once and share your sweetened experience with me.
