The Chocolate Challenge is one of our most popular team building activities, so here are some chocolate quotations. Feel free to share…
“Strength is the capacity to break a chocolate bar into four pieces with your bare hands – and then eat just one of the pieces” Judith Viorst
“There’s nothing better than a good friend, except a good friend with CHOCOLATE” Linda Grayson, “The Pickwick Papers”
“Chocolate causes certain endocrine glands to secrete hormones that affect your feelings and behaviour by making you happy. Therefore, it counteracts depression, in turn reducing the stress of depression. Your stress-free life helps you maintain a youthful disposition, both physically and mentally. So, eat lots of chocolate!” Elaine Sherman, Book of Divine Indulgences
Seen on a tee shirt: EMERGENCY ALERT: If wearer of this shirt is found vacant, listless, or depressed, ADMINISTER CHOCOLATE IMMEDIATELY.
“It’s not that chocolates are a substitute for love. Love is a substitute for chocolate. Chocolate is, let’s face it, far more reliable than a man.” Miranda Ingram
“All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt!” Lucy Van Pelt (in Peanuts, by Charles M. Schulz)
“Exercise is a dirty word… Every time I hear it, I wash my mouth out with chocolate.”
“Nuts just take up space where chocolate ought to be.”
“Chemically speaking, chocolate really is the world’s perfect food.” Michael Levine, nutrition researcher, as quoted in The Emperors of Chocolate: Inside the Secret World of Hershey and Mars
“I could give up chocolate but I’m not a quitter.”
“I have this theory that chocolate slows down the aging process…. It may not be true, but do I dare take the chance?”
“In the beginning, the Lord created chocolate, and he saw that it was good. Then he separated the light from the dark, and it was better.”
“Carob is a brown powder made from the pulverized fruit of a Mediterranean evergreen. Some consider carob an adequate substitute for chocolate because it has some similar nutrients (calcium, phosphorus), and because it can, when combined with vegetable fat and sugar, be made to approximate the colour and consistency of chocolate. Of course, the same arguments can as persuasively be made in favour of dirt.” Sandra Boynton, author of Chocolate: the Consuming Passion
