CHOCOGLYPH

by The Chocolate Dictionary

A chocoglyph is a phrasal image of chocolatude. Found in headlines, buried in magazine articles or uncovered in the pages of novels, chocoglyphs can be abstract or precise, reflective or descriptive, but always with those elements of sweetness and charm so characteristic of chocolates. The phrases stand out from the words around them like opals in bedrock:

  • a bridge between two sighs
  • a canapé’s dream patisserie
  • a pediment for our sweetest sentiments
  • a pictogram of bliss
  • a sugar cube dreaming of Venice
  • a wave of joy at the instant of its unfolding
