News of a new chocolate bar caught my attention today. It could be said that chocolate claims 90% of my attention anyway, but we don’t need to go into that.
The first thing that made me go “ooh!” was the name – Wonder Bar. A nice play on words and a sure sign of success in my opinion. Lets face it, who is going to argue against the fact that the wonderful piece of lingerie that is Wonder Bra is one of the best inventions ever??
According to Courant.com
The Wonder Bar, comes in pink-and-white packaging and is sold by a New Jersey company called Ecco Bella.
“This 1.75-ounce slab of genius was on display this week at the Fancy Food Show, a massive expo for companies selling the tasty victuals that wind up in specialty stores worldwide.”
….But the best bit – “It’s chocolate that is specially formulated to help women alleviate the symptoms of PMS.”
Now this got me thinking – Doesn’t all chocolate do that? Well, apparently the answer is yes and no.
The science bit….Cravings for chocolate are due to low blood sugar levels thought to be produced by low progesterone and high oestrogen levels.
Consuming chocolate is a temporary measure. This will raise the blood sugar level which will result in eliminating the cravings, but only for a few hours and then the cravings come back and start all over again.
So, the cravings will come back again a few hours later? And the problem with that again is…..?
It’s true there are many sensible ways to alleviate the symptoms of PMT (pre menstrual tension) / PMS ( pre menstrual shopping) but my advice to any guys reading this who claim to suffer the brunt on a monthly basis is buy her chocolate! Not just once a month either, oh no! Buy her chocolate every day (best to be on the safe side eh guys?) In fact, for a truly harmonious life and relationship, shower the lady with Wonder Bars and Wonder Bras. Chocolate and lingerie; you know it makes sense.
…And so, back to the Wonder Bar which is described as delicious Swiss chocolate, rose oil, herbs and soy – where can I purchase such a bar? I need some NOW…purely for reviewing purposes you understand.
