Take Two Chocolates
And Call me in the Morning
A spoonful of sugar really does make the medicine go down. But what if your pills came in the form of chocolate bonbons? It may be time to put the sugar bowl away because cough remedies have never tasted so sweet. A recent study reports that theobromine, found in chocolate, is actually more effective than codeine when it comes to easing coughs.
That’s good news for chocolate lovers the world over. Now you’re free to eat those truffles in plain view and if anyone challenges your right to the Whitman’s Sampler, just tell them it’s doctor’s orders. While chocolate (+17%) has been banned from many diets, it hasn’t been banished from search where it’s always a favorite. The folks with the fewest waistline problems and the highest average metabolism (the 18-and-under crowd) provide 40% of overall searches.
The rest of us are showing signs of restraint, though interest in theobromine has soared among those 35 and up. After all, the weather’s getting colder, and those nasty bugs are going around the office. If you find yourself with a cough that you can’t kick, consider raiding your kids’ Halloween candy stash. Or try one of these choco-licious search sensations sure to tickle your taste buds and soothe that cough. Source: Buzz Index
