Poll: Le Whif Chocolate Inhaler

Would You Try This Chocolate Inhaler?

Meet Le Whif, a chocolate inhaler that's being marketed as the perfect accompaniment to coffee and an effective way to curb chocolate cravings. Like chocolate bars, the product, which debuts stateside in May, comes in multiple flavors (mint chocolate, raspberry chocolate, mango chocolate, and plain chocolate). But unlike chocolate bars, the caloric content seems to disappear into, well, thin air.

Explains lead inventor and Harvard professor David Edwards: "Over the centuries we've been eating smaller and smaller quantities at shorter and shorter intervals. It seemed to us that eating was tending toward breathing, so, with a mix of culinary art and aerosol science, we've helped move eating habits to their logical conclusion. We call it whiffing."

Since inhaled substances have subsisted for centuries, I'm actually rather surprised that this innovation has only now come into existence. Would you give Le Whif a whiff?

"Eating is trending toward inhaling"...uh, yea, not for me! I'm with everyone else who said I'd rather EAT my chocolate than whiff it!

Weird. Why not just get a chocolate-scented candle or something? Or you could do what my husband's friend does...chews up his chocolate and then spits it out so he doesn't get fat, lol.

I prefer to consume my chocolate the old-fashioned way. :) The fragrance of the chocolate would trigger an overwhelming desire for the real thing, so I think I would just cut out the "middle man", so to speak, and just eat a piece of chocolate straight. LOL ;)

Something about this just seems, well, odd to me. I'd much rather just eat some chocolate than inhale it.

No thanks. This seems really silly to me. Just eat a piece of chocolate if you want some that badly.

i suppose it's creative enough but not something that i'd be overly excited to check out. oh well. i'll have to hear what others have to say about it.

lol, word-hole. Yeah, pass. What about savoring a small, good piece of chocolate (sniffings and tastings included!) and getting the craving out of your that way?

Until I know what that's doing to my lungs and vocal chords, I'm going to stick to shoving my chocolate down my word-hole.

Cool idea - the sense of smell is terribly underrated.

I'd like to know if there are any side effects from the chemicals but other than that? Awesome. I'd probably overuse it though.

I'd rather eat my chocolate than stick it up my nose.
