Chocolate Mochi Donut from Nevyn Handmade Bakery in Tokyo
What would you say if I told you that you could enjoy the taste of real chocolate without consuming any calories?
A Harvard scientist and his grad students recently created a device called "Le Whif." Basically it's an inhaler dispelling vaporized chocolate particles rather than oxygen... you actually get the taste of chocolate in your mouth.
Sound weird? Apparently, it's all the craze in Europe right now. Check out Le Whif website.
I have to admit I'm intrigued, but not convinced. My chocolate love is so much more than just the taste. It's the creamy smooth texture of a chocolate bar, or dense chewiness of a brownie.
That's not to say I wouldn't give it a try if I found it in a Japanese airport. Maybe those wacky oxygen bars will add a chocolate option to the menu.
What about you?
