CHOCOSOPHY

by The Chocolate Dictionary

Chocosophy is the wisdom of chocolates. Conventionally expressed in small but beautifully formed statements, chocosophy comments on, or advises about, chocolates. The style is often paradoxical but always with some sweetness of flavour:

  • A chocolate as dark as night can make your day.
  • Fullness is an empty box of chocolates.
  • The formula for chocolates is: one more than the one before.
  • Sometimes a woman’s greatest strength is that she is too weak to resist a box of chocolates.
