Now, let's read about what people have said about this sweet, sweet pleasure.

Let's start with a few lines from the movie, Chocolat...

Luc Clairmont at confession: "Each time I tell myself it's the last time, but then I get a whiff of her hot chocolate, or" Madame Audel: "Seashells. Chocolate seashells, so small, so plain, so *innocent*. I thought, oh, just one little taste, it can't do any harm. But it turned out they were filled with rich, sinful..." Yvette Marceau: "And it *melts*, God forgive me, it melts ever so slowly on your tongue, and tortures you with pleasure."

"And above all... Think Chocolate!"~~~Betty Crocker

My momma always said, "Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."~~~Forrest Gump in the movie "Forrest Gump". This wonderful movie was released in 1994. It's on my favorite movie list and it gave us a chocolate quote too!

"Caramels are only a fad. Chocolate is a permanent thing." ~~~Milton Snavely Hershey

"Chemically speaking, chocolate really is the world's perfect food."~~~Michael Levine. Now for those of you who don't know, Michael Levine is a nutritional researcher. The Emperors of Chocolate: Inside the Secret World of Hershey and Mars by Joël Glenn Brenner

"All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt!"~~~Lucy Van Pelt (You know Lucy...she is in the Peanuts cartoon by Charles M. Schultz)

"Strength is the capacity to break a chocolate bar into four pieces with your bare hands - and then eat just one of the pieces"~~~Judith Viorst

"The taste of chocolate is a sensual pleasure in itself, existing in the same world as sex... For myself, I can enjoy the wicked pleasure of chocolate... entirely by myself. Furtiveness makes it better."~~~Dr. Ruth Westheimer...and you thought Dr. Ruth's mind was always on something else.

Mrs. Gloop: "What a disgusting, dirty river!" Mr. Salt: "Industrial waste, that. You've ruined your watershed" Wonka: it's polluted." Willy Wonka: "It's chocolate. Veruca Salt: "That's chocolate?" Charlie Bucket: "That's chocolate!" ~~~From the movie Willie Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

The Health Benefits of Chocolate

Do you know the Health Benefits of Chocolate? I didn't, but I do now. I included them in my Hershey Chocolate Facts page because I figured all of us chocolate lovers would love to use some of these facts as an argument to eat more chocolate!

Chocolate gives you some quick energy and reduces anxiety. Chocolate also is a natural analgesic and can trigger your brain's production of natural opiates. Researchers tell us chocolate can keep our blood pressure down, our hearts healthy and our blood flowing. Now don't go eat a lot of candy for medicinal purposes. I just thought you would like to hear these facts...if you want to know more about them Google the health benefits of chocolate and find a good site. This is, after all, a Hershey Chocolate Facts page. I am just listing some fun facts chocolate lovers would like to hear.
