You see, we ’ ve all been trying to break off triangles by pulling them away from the rest of the bar. That’s wrong . Toblerone actually showed us the right way to snap off a piece a few years back in one of their adverts.

There’s a reason the cocoa plant’s scientific name translates to “food of the gods” – biting into a chocolate block is heavenly.

But if you munch away at that block – like most people do – then, sorry, but you’re doing it wrong.

Because eating chocolate is a thing you can do wrong, apparently.

The good people Vosges Haut-Chocolat, a Chicago-based luxury chocolate maker, have put up a guide on ‘how to eat chocolate’ and it raised a few eyebrows around the Mamamia office.

According to the guide, after you’ve taken the time to see the “glossy shine” on your chocolate bar, rubbed it between your fingers to “release the aromas” and broken a piece off, listening out for the “crisp, ringing snap”, you put that piece in your mouth.

Here's What It Looks Like to Eat Vegetarian-Paleo For 1 Day

  Here's What It Looks Like to Eat Vegetarian-Paleo For 1 Day As if eating like a cavewoman when sticking to a strict Paleo diet isn't challenging enough, is it really even possible to eat like a vegetarian cavewoman? Unless you eat about a dozen eggs a day to meet your protein needs, going vegetarian and Paleo is probably not sustainable long term. However, it's certainly easy enough for Paleo eaters to take a one-day break from their beloved bacon and fill up on — you guessed it — veggies! If you take us up on the challenge, we guarantee you'll feel lighter and more energized in just 24 hours. Read on for a look at how delicious — and satisfying — a one-day stint as vegetarian Paleo can be.

Yes, the researchers found a link between acne and chocolate , but they're not sure how many of the young adults surveyed were eating chocolate and how many were eating other sweets that could have contributed to skin problems.

But are you even eating Toblerone the right way? If you 're grabbing one of the triangles and pulling it away, you 're dead wrong . You wouldn't say no to Toblerone, would you ? But Toblerone isn't the only candy we ' ve been wrong about

And then you “press it to the roof of your mouth” and wait for it to melt and… and that’s it.

There is no mention of biting or chewing. You don’t chew the chocolate, they say. Chewing your chocolate is basically a sin. You allow the “thirty seconds” for the chocolate to “slowly begin to melt around your tongue”.

I Gave Up Dessert For 2 Weeks and Learned I Could Somehow Live Without Chocolate

  I Gave Up Dessert For 2 Weeks and Learned I Could Somehow Live Without Chocolate My name is Emily, and I have a sweet tooth. That's actually an understatement.I sure did. And it hit me in that moment like a ton of bricks. I needed to chill.

I was going to give up dessert.
