Some people are mad for chocolate. Some people are mad for cocaine. Some people are stuck between the two, and snort chocolate. Yup. Really.
I snorted a crushed up refresher in school once, and it well hurt my nose. Apparently this isn’t quite like that, though.
Belgian (obviously) lad Dominique Persoone invented a chocolate snorting kit a few years ago, as a party piece for Ronnie Wood’s birthday. Honestly.
Now it seems to be taking off. A parlour in Canada sells the kit for $109 CAD and a ‘shot’ of chocolate for $2 CAD.
The claim is that:
When you snort it, you kind of experience chocolate for a couple hours very subtly — without the caloric intake. It hits all the same pleasure receptors in the brain as if you were eating it.
It makes this song seem a bit more harmless though.
