An irony involving the contrary juxtaposition of chocolate events or situations. Fans of Joanne Harris’s Chocolat, in which the  confllict between a Catholic priest and a newly-arrived chocolatier informs the main plot, point to the interesting chocony of the real life Catholic Institute of Paris being situated between two of the city’s best existing chocolatiers: Jean-Charles Rochoux at number 16 Rue d’Assas and Christian Constant at number 37. Whether Harris was aware of this fact when writing the novel is not known.
