Which is Better: Chocolate or Kissing?

A recent neurophysiological study has found that at the point chocolate melts in the mouth, all regions of the brain receive a boost far more intense and longer lasting than the excitement produced by kissing a loved one. We all know the health benefits of eating dark chocolate but this extends into pure enjoyment.

The reasoning was this: Chocolate contains a number of substances that give 'natural highs,' including phenylethylamine, which is produced by the body when people are in love, and theobromine. I am not sure I am convinced as being covered with electrodes while being monitored by men in white lab coats (as the participants were) hardly screams romance, however I am curious what you think...

designr, wiggle, too. We're to the point where if someone's not leaving a simple kiss means "Take me right now, I dont' care if I'm in the middle of something!" Chocolate is just sweet chocolate.

Kissing! I can get chocolate anytime I want from the vending machine at work, but I'm single and don't get kisses much. :( Hmm, how about a kissing vending machine?? Eww.

I think i'm tainted from being in a long term relationship, because there are these truffles from this little bakery/sweet shop that i'd go for before kissing my hunny.
