CHOCOPHORIA

by The Chocolate Dictionary

Chocophoria is the elation that follows the eating of a box of chocolates as, bite by bite, nibble by nibble, the contents is magnified by satisfaction till the last morsel is an apex of pleasure from which one looks down on the world in joy.

The Swiss mercenary in Bernard Shaw’s Arms and the Man is full of chocophoria when he exclaims, “To my last hour I shall remember those three chocolate creams”.

Jean-Paul Aron, the French philosopher and founder member of the prestigious Club des Croquers de Chocolate, described chocophoria when said chocolate is “an intense aesthetic pleasure, unparalleled, sensuous, almost erotic”.
