Why do most women crave chocolate?

You know you do. I certainly do. But why do  most women crave chocolate? Why is it that 9/10 women say they’d rather have chocolate than sex? (This is documented, although if you add the word “Great” before the word “sex, the numbers change dramatically).

Here’s a quick video on how to make chocolate-covered strawberries. Mmmmm.

If the chocolate craving is true for you, MagicKitchen can help out. I had the chocolate ganache cake last week, and wow is all I can say. But the question remains. So I did a little research.

Chocolate contains:

-theobromine and caffeine, providing a little extra mental energy
-phenylethylamine, which increases your nervous system and produces “Feel-good” hormones.
-anandamide, a built-in flavor enhancer that some say has a structure very similar to that of tetrahydrocannabinol, the active constituent of marijuana.

So there it is! Chocolate really does make you feel better. But keep in mind that dark chocolate is better for your health, and in this case moderation is definitely the better part of weight watching.
