It is true, chocolate does make you happier. I'm going to eat some more often.

Didn't have to be told that! lol
Holl's Chocolates ROCK Happy!!!!

Keep your eyes wide open and don't run!

P.S. Just to be clear, because sometimes I am not. I do not believe...
in the existence of a large previously unknown undiscovered hairy biped roaming North America.
But I like to hear the accounts, read the books, watch the shows, discuss and argue about the phenomenon.

I remember a wives tale where chocolate would give you zits. :w00t:

It's good to have some skepticism so you won't be gullible & naïve. But to much of it can make you arrogant & egotistical.

"Piomelli found that chocolate contains anandamide, which is also produced naturally in the brain and which activates the same target that marijuana does."  

Hippie Brownies...now I understand.

Maybe.

But, gee, wouldn't it have been a great study to be part of? (Unless you were assigned to the chocolate-free control group...)

There would be blood if I were ever assigned to a "chocolate free control group".

They want to extract the active ingredient, patent a process for creating it synthetically as a prescription medicine and sell it for a big profit!

I'll take the Belgian truffles, please.

I'd eat more chocolate if it didn't have all the sugar. Dark chocolate is where it's at.
