Hmm chocolates! I don’t think there is anyone who doesn’t enjoy this delicious chocolate treat. The optimum chocolates are made from the seeds of the tropical cacao tree, but most of us don’t care where it comes from or how it’s made, because we just love it for its taste.We all love a bit of chocolate just as we enjoy a slice of our favorite cake, but some of the optimum chocolates around are known to have some very useful medical properties according to scientists. The key ingredient, ‘theobromine’, is actually a third more effective at stopping a persistent cough than drugs containing codeine and it won’t make your drowsy either.
We’re lucky enough, we have a specialist chocolate store in our town and the selections here are absolutely unbelievable. It’s not all is in fancy boxes either and there are a lot of options to try by the piece. Every Christmas we make our own chocolate gift baskets using world chocolates and we know everyone loves to receive these as presents.
The varieties in chocolate vary enormously from chocolate covered almonds, assorted bars, dark and white mix, caramels, whirls, eggs, nuggets, creams, oh the list is endless as are the shapes, sizes, designs, and tastes.
I love optimum chocolates so much that I savor the taste as long as possible by freezing all but the soft centers. There’s no greater way to reward your taste buds than sucking on cold chocolate. Hmm! So, what are you waiting for? There’s bound to be a shop near you with loads of chocolate treats just waiting to be tried.
