Chocolate puts the fire out??!!!

Well I would never have believed it until I saw it with my own eyes!

Having a meal last night I was being told that on a recent cruise a friend of mine was at a table with a large bowl of Choclate in the middle. They were eating a spicy curry and one of the assembled group ate a very hot chilli – they were advised against water or milk and told to eat some chocolate.

I was listening to this when one of our party did exactly the same. You know when you swallow a chilli and the pressure begins to build in your head immediately. Your tongue and lips suddenly become your most prominent body parts. Your can feel every contour as the heat builds. 

He asked the manager for chocolate and was brought a celebration from the kitchen (no doubt a Christmas chocolate tub shared by staff). Although the mini chocolate didn’t stop the heat altogether it certainly settled it down and made the rest of the meal bearable.

The moral of the story is, if you are going to eat spicy food or chilli make sure you are armed with chocolate.

Chocolate is good for you……..
