**Chocolate Wins!**

Hey blogoverse readers! Todays post (well one of them!) is going to be about chocolate! These are the reasons why...

I did a poll on my left sidebar asking if you guys (the gorgeouz readers of my blog) liked chocolate or diamonds more. Well the truth is...

CHOCOLATE SO WINS!
These are the results...

Chocolate-8 votes
Diamonds-7 votes
Both-6 votes
NONE!!-0 votes!

So it was very close but you cant argue with pure politics. I don't know if I'm making sense right now. I f I am then GREAT. I f I'm not then also GREAT!
Anywatz... Since you guys clearly favour chocolate, I am going to do a post about chocolate (Mmmmmmmmmmmmm... chocolate) I better hurry or I might just eat ths post!
Here are 10 weird and wacky facts that I bet you didn't know about chocolate!

1. Chocolate is lower in caffeine than tea, coffee and coca cola. A one ounce bar of chocolate contains about 6mg of caffeine, whereas a five ounce cup of regular coffee contains over 40mg.

2. Chocolate was regarded as an aphrodisiac by Aztec Indians.

3. Chocolate contains antioxidants which may help prevent cancer and heart disease.


4. Chocolate is the favourite flavour in the United States Of America.

5. The shelf life of a bar of chocolate is approximately one year.


6. In 1842 Cadbury's in England created the worlds first chocolate bar.


7. The Swiss eat the most chocolate. The average person eats 19lbs a year.


8. Chocolate contain theobromine, which is a mild relative of caffeine and magnesium. This chemical is found in some tranquilisers. Because coffee also contains caffeine, it both picks you up and calms you down.


9. It is widely believed that chocolate consumption releases a chemical into your body very similar to what is produced when you are in love.


10. Chocolate manufacturers use 20% of the worlds peanuts and 40% of the worlds almonds.
