Ah...chocolate. We love it dearly despite its bitter taste. Perhaps this has something to do with the serotonin and dopamine released into our brains when we eat it. Chocolate has many psychoactive chemicals: sugar, caffeine, anandamide (the bliss chemical), tryptophan, and the favored symbol of chocolate: theobromine.

Theobromine is a mild stimulant related to caffeine that makes up about 2% of cacao beans. It is thought to uplift mood. The name theobromine is derived from Greek words, meaning "food of the gods." I would have to agree. Especially when mixed with spicy chili, the way the Mayans enjoyed it 2,600 years ago.

For the health benefits from the flavonoids antioxidants go with the darkest varieties. 

These sterling silver earrings are based on the theobromine molecule. The charms are about 3/4 inch long and are attached to sterling silver French wires. Each pair is packaged in a recycled gift box and includes an informational tag about theobromine.
