by The Chocolate Dictionary

The wistful feeling experienced during a dirth of chocolates. Chocolipsis is expressed as a question or unresolved doubt. Examples include:

  • How many thoughts of pleasure are contained in an empty box of chocolates?
  • Does touching the void mean palpating an empty ballotin of pralines?
  • When we do not think of truffles and pralines do think of anything at all?
  • She served the chocolates in one of her lacy bras. If only she had had a fuller figure.
  • When Keats wrote of “The coming musk-rose, full of dewy wine” in his heart-tugging Ode to a Nightingale, was he anticipating the phenomenon of rose crèmes and the way in which they’d one day tug on our feelings like murmurous summer days?
