Inhaling Chocolate

French chef Thierry Marx and Harvard professor of biomedical engineering David Edwards have invented a way to consume chocolate without calories. Le Whif is an aerosol inhaler that provides a puff of fine chocolate powder every time you get the cocoa urge. Each inhaler contains about 200 milligrams of chocolate powder, less than 1 calorie of chocolate, with four puffs per container.

To use, you place the device between your lips and inhale and the particles land on your tongue and the sides of your mouth, where you can taste them best. When you eat a chocolate bar, in contrast, much of the chocolate passes quickly through your mouth without spending much time on your taste buds. Le Whif allows you to inhale and savor. It comes in chocolate, chocolate mint and chocolate raspberry.

I had a test sample of this last spring. The first whiff: verrry chocolate-y, triggering all the senses except the mouth-feel. After 5 or 6 whiffs, all gone. Dunno what they are selling them for, but it was fun. Completely harmless, I was told.
