CHOCOLATOPOEIA

by The Chocolate Dictionary

Chocolatopoeia is when a word sounds as if it is made of chocolate. Examples include ‘rhapsody’, which sounds as if it contains crunchy almond and hazelnut praline; ‘nectar’, which sounds as if it is enrobed in a paper-thin couverture; and the word ‘panache’, which has such a smooth sound to it, it could be a ganache filling. Such words not only sound delicious, they also add a flourish to the lips when uttered.
