Life is like a box of chocolates – you never know what you’re going to get. Forrest Gump in “Forrest Gump” (1994)


This guy found a bottle on the ocean, and he opened it and out popped a genie, and he gave him three wishes. The guy wished for a million dollars, and poof! there was a million dollars. Then he wished for a convertible, and poof! there was a convertible. And then, he wished he could be irresistible to all women… poof! he turned into a box of chocolates.

“It has been shown as proof positive that carefully prepared chocolate is as healthful a food as it is pleasant; that it is nourishing and easily digested… that it is above all helpful to people who must do a great deal of mental work.” – Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Never trust someone who says they don’t like chocolate – they’re either allergic or lying. – ML

Chocolate may not make the world go ’round, but it sure does make the trip worthwhile!


Chocolate is not a matter of life and death – it’s more important than that! (the nearest I can get is a twist on 1950’s Henry Russell Sanders, an American football college coach who said; “Beating SC is not a matter of life and death – it’s more important than that.”)

Stress wouldn’t be so hard to take if it were chocolate covered.

Chocolate is a Vegetable: chocolate is derived from cocoa beans. Bean = vegetable. Sugar is derived from either sugar cane or sugar beets. Both are plants, which places them in the vegetable category. Thus, chocolate is a vegetable. To go one step further, chocolate candy bars also contain milk, which is dairy. So candy bars are a health food. – Dr. Bill Webster

Chemically speaking, chocolate really is the world’s perfect food. – Michael Levine, nutrition researcher

Chocolate is a perfect food, as wholesome as it is delicious, a beneficent restorer of exhausted power. It is the best friend of those engaged in literary pursuits. – Baron Justus von Liebig (1803-1873), German chemist
