The placebo's will either be really cheap chocolate with no cocoa solids, or something Japanese filled with bean paste.

"Chocolate wards off hunger"

Ha ha ha ha ha! Ya don't say!

I never buy Godiva chocolate candies because they're way too expensive, but once in a while I splurge on their Dark Chocolate Decadance drink, that is sooooo good.

Not a fan of Godiva. They include a lot of wax so the chocolates can hold those intricate shapes. Hell, Godiva hasn't really been Godiva for over 40 years -- they were bought out by Campbell's Soup in the '60s!

What an interesting story. This sounds like another excuse to treat myself to some chocolate.

I wanna be prevailed upon to eat three squares of chocolate per day for 12 weeks ! Sounds really rough!

Japan produces some fairly good chocolates, used to be better. American Hershey's is poor quality -- their grinders aren't good enough and the result is gritty. Try Cote D'or (Belgium), easily found in Japan and quite nice for the price!
