Girls Write Out
Thursday, April 19, 2007

Di and I knew it all along. Now thanks to our BB (blogging buddy) Allen, we have it confirmed. Women crave chocolate for more than the taste. Here's a little bit of the article Allen gave me:

A passionate kiss is sure to make the heart melt.
But it is no comparison to the sensation of chocolate melting on the tongue, a study has discovered. Young volunteers' hearts and heads were hooked up to electrodes and asked to taste pieces of dark chocolate before kissing their partners. The deflating discovery was that chocolate provides a buzz lasting up to four times as long as embracing the special person in our lives.

And this was for both women AND men! Is it any wonder Di and I put chocolate in our books when we've got romance in there? That's a legal thrill in CBA! LOL But anyway, it got me to thinking about how food is WAY too important to me. Like right now, I'm planning a trip to Canada this weekend to speak at a sales conference in Toronto. So what am I researching last night online? You guessed it--restaurants. I love to try new things and there are all these really cool cultural type restaurants in Toronto. K is always raving about Indian food and I've never even TASTED it. I live in Indiana, after all. LOL

But no matter what I ever eat, chocolate--preferably DeBrand mocha truffles--rate right up there with the best taste ever to cross my tongue. Now I know why. Thanks a lot, Allen. Now I'm going to be checking out my heart rate when Dave kisses me in comparison to chocolate. I still think he rates better though! LOL

LOL! The moral of this story? Eat your chocolate THEN kiss your man. *g*

Study? What study? That is one I would have LOVED to take part in.

Course, I guess I could just do it at home....

LOL, Colleen, you better tell Dave his kisses up your heart rate more than chocolate or .... he might be wounded for life. ;) haha

Ah, kisses sweeter than chocolate. Isn't that the saying? :)

Allen, where'd you get that link? You want to post it for the skeptics? LOL

My hubby is better than chocolate and that's saying a lot! LOL

LOL! You guys crack me up. All I have to say is thank God for chocolate or my life would be lackluster :)

Oooh, Indian food! *mouth waters* I LOVE IT. I've noticed that most people dislike it if they're not used to it but I can't get enough curry.

Chicken Korma & Palaak Gosht or Saag, depending on the region -- Lamb with spinach...oh my mouth is watering. : ) Better than chocolate, and probably more fattening too. LOL

Chocolate vs. books.....nope, I still would rather read than eat chocolate....but BOOKS with chocolate IN the, you're talkin!! LOL!!

Love the Indian food. We used to have an Indian buffet! They always looked concerned when I walked in...five plates later, I'd leave and I'm sure it's one of the reason's they went out of business.

And the whole chocolate/kissing - I'd rather kiss my wife than eat chocolate any day.

I'll look for the link. It was a British news paper.

May I use this tidbit on my blog, Christian Love Stories? The chocolate and kissing thing? Fridays are called Fun Fridays, and I'd like to post this. Great post, BTW, Colleen!

Ooh, this post has me cravin' chocolate now. Not that that's unusual. LOL! But Di, I'm going to take your suggestion and try the whole chocolate-then-kiss-your-man idea. I can't think of a better way to spend a Friday! LOL!

Chocolate! Yum! Some of my favorite chocolate treats are chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and chocolate chip cookies!

I found this blog yesterday and I'm very excited! I love to read and all of your books are among my favorites.

LOL! Colleen, you better bring me one of those truffles at conference. I want to see if they're as good as you say they are. I may splurge for a box of Mon Cheri dark chocolate covered cherries filled wih Kirsch. Wait until you try one of those. :-)
