The Power Of Chocolate

You know how I always talk about the milestones of our society and other important issues that we are constantly facing? Yeah, this is going to be another important issue, as well. Whoever told you chocolate isn't important is lying or is on a strict diet and is remorseful, because he or she couldn't resist the charm of chocolate.
I'd like to start by taking a step backwards and discussing the history of chocolate. Its history began in Mesoamerica (today's Central America), because it was produced by a tree that only grew there. There is evidence that people, literally, drank chocolate beverages 4000 years ago. It was primarily drunk in royal ceremonies or served as a tribute to the Aztec and Mayan Gods. Then came the Europeans and did a bunch of stuff to the cocoa seeds and created a work of art.
Nobody can deny that chocolate is the pole of attraction for all of us. To be frank, the only people that don't like it are the ones who are allergic to it.
But why is chocolate so irresistible? 
Do you know what they say about junk food, and how addicting it is? Well, the same rule applies to chocolate. If you have too much of it, you want more. And if you don't have any of it for a long period of time, then you crave it really badly.
Not only that, but chocolate has been proven to be a substitute for sex. Or at least the euphoric feeling you have afterwards. That is due to the endorphins that are released after the consumption. These are the same hormones that are secreted after intercourse.
The moral of the story is, "If you eat chocolate, you are happy". So what are you waiting for, grab your nutella and let's roll.
