Chocolate Satisfaction

Okay, yesterday I mentioned that 2 out of 3 great discoveries involve chocolate and BAM!

The next thing I know there’s breaking news from the International Culinary Olympics –

Apparently, the gold medal in the single exhibitor category was awarded to a sculpture… made of chocolate.


I think not.

Sure, it may have helped that the figures depicted the Rolling Stones (see it for yourself here), but still –

The chocolaty goodness of that creative connection was not lost on me.

And yet, there’s more –

Did you know that it was NOT a French chef, but the French Painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, who created that little dab of heaven on earth – Mousse au Chocolat?

And writers – get your noggins around these best-sellers:

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl

The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier

and Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel


Chocolate –

It's obviously not just for breakfast anymore.


Sculptors – You know what to do.

Painters – I see mousse in your future.

Writers – Warm up today with a cup of cocoa and a Rolling Stones rewrite – Ain’t too Proud to Beg (for Chocolate), (I Can’t Get No Chocolate) Satisfaction, Get Off of my (Chocolate Mousse) Cloud, Start Me Up (with Chocolate), and, of course, You Can’t Always Get What You Want, but if you try sometime you just might find some Chocolate… and a whole lot of creativity!
