Thirteen Reasons I eat Chocolate

1. It tastes sooooooo good!

2. The dark variety has iron in it, and that's good for me.

3. If I buy Fair Trade, that's good for other people too.

4. Eating chocolate triggers the release of endorphins, which makes me have happy feelings (can't have too many of those).

5. It contains phenylethylamine, which has aphrodisiac properties ...

6. It's cheaper than buying shoes (see 4 above)

7. The caffeine in chocolate gives my brainpower a little boost - just what this writer needs.

8. It tastes sooooo good!

9. Some scientists have found that eating a little chocolate may help thin the blood, helping to prevent clotting. Gotta look after my heart ...

10. It's cheaper than buying handbags (see 4 above)

11. I can drink it. Well, makes a change from herbal tea and decaffeinated coffee.

12. It's easily accessible. I get my daily aerobic activity on my walk to the local shop.

13. It tastes sooooooooooooooo good!

Chocolate is wonderful but I can't see it replacing my new handbag obsession. Granted, that's mostly due to food allergies on my part - not a lot of selection in the guaranteed peanut free chocolates.

Mmmm, chocolate. Iron one is new to me, guess that means I'll be eating know, for my health and all. LOL

Great post!

That's 5 TTs today that have left me feeling hungry. At least I can easily get some chocolate tomorrow :-)

I didn't know that chocolate had iron in it....that must be why I always craved it when I was pregnant and breastfeeding!
