I was reading the comfort food thread and a good majority said chocolate. And I'm just wondering how do chocolate and sadness mix?

Its just a romantic treat. Its soothing, and its sweet. Ya know, chocolate's melting temp is just under the humans body temp. So its very stimulating to simply sit down and enjoy.

That's what I'm trying to figure out.

When I eat chocolate it always melts and irritates me. Chocolate makes me feel worse. ]:

It's because chocolate is an 'aphrodisiac'.

–adjective 1. Also, aph·ro·di·si·a·cal /ˌæfrədəˈzaɪəkəl, -ˈsaɪ-/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[af-ruh-duh-zahy-uh-kuhl, -sahy-] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation. arousing sexual desire.
–noun 2. an aphrodisiac food, drug, potion, or other agent that arouses sexual desire.

It's just like oysters. ~

Beacuse chocolate produces endorfin and that is a hormone that makes us happy. The body produces the hormone for example when we're in love.

Chocolate doesn't produce it, but it releases it.

Plus, it's spelled Endorphin, specifically beta endorphins.


It gives a slight sense of euphoria, which basically makes you forget all the shit you're going through. However, most chocolates contain caffeine, as well, so it's quite easy to feel a "need to eat chocolate" during stressful times.


Couple this with the fact that you release Cortisol during stressful periods, and you've got the belly blues... huhu...

Chocolate can be so damn expensive. I was craving chocolate and walked into Godiva to buy some and ended up spending $10 on five truffles.. I didn't realize it was $2 for a stupid ball.

I can buy a bag of 12 lindt truffles for $4 at Target... bleh.
