The nine-lettered word chocolate
may be one of the most loaded words in a food lover's language. For
many women, chocolate not only takes the form of a food item, but also
the nuances of an interpersonal relationship as well. And there are
a lot of special friends from which to select - smooth or with nuts,
dark or milk, plain, fruit or caramel centers, heart-shaped, bell-shaped
For some, chocolate may represent
a food we long for, but feel we must resist. Chocolate may also typify
a self-proclaimed "weakness" if we dub it as a binge or trigger
food.As such, we often assign chocolate
almost demonic qualities. We've all heard of, and no doubt tasted, "sinfully"
delicious chocolate cake, as well as "devil's" food cake.
