Chocolate You Breathe



All About Chocolate

Everything you want to know about chocolate

Have you ever wanted some chocolate, but not wanted to deal with that whole chewing thing? Thankfully, someone designed a product for you. Called Le Whif, it is a miniature inhaler that sprays calorie-free chocolate into your mouth. Developed by David Edwards of Harvard, it supposedly fits into the progression of how we eat:

Over the centuries we've been eating smaller and smaller quantities at shorter and shorter intervals. It seemed to us that eating was tending toward breathing, so, with a mix of culinary art and aerosol science, we've helped move eating habits to their logical conclusion. We call it whiffing.

Le Whif is available in four flavors: mint chocolate, raspberry chocolate, mango chocolate, and plain chocolate.

What does spray chocolate taste like? Mark Wilson of Gizmodo weighs in with these words: "The sensation is akin to sucking a tiny bit of cocoa powder through a straw. And while not necessarily enjoyable in any way, it was admittedly a lot of chocolate flavor for only .8 calories a stick."
