quotations about chocolate

Chocolate quote

Chocolate is both an industry and a sensation.

HERMAN A. BERLINER, forward, Chocolate: Food of the Gods

More than any other food, chocolate delights and enchants ... chocolate tantalizes and it comforts. Chocolate has soothed fretful children and welcomed tired travelers; mountain climbers have saved their last piece of chocolate to celebrate reaching new heights; suitors have given chocolate to show the depth of their devotion. Chocolate has been used as a stimulant, an aphrodisiac, and [even] a form of currency.

NEVA BEACH, The Ghirardelli Chocolate Cookbook

Chocolate is food from the gods; it's energy, vitality, oneness.

MURRAY LANGHAM, Chocolate Therapy

Chocolate making is an art as well as a science, and chocolate makers keep secret the roasting temperatures used, the time given to "conching", and the exact proportions of their formulations, which is why no two manufacturers' chocolates taste the same.

LORI LONGBOTHAM, Luscious Chocolate Desserts

Chocolate knows no boundaries; speaks all languages; comes in all sizes; is woven through many cultures and disciplines ... it impacts mood, health, and economics, and it is a part of our lives from early childhood through the elderly years.

HERMAN A. BERLINER, forward, Chocolate: Food of the Gods

Happiness. Simple as a glass of chocolate or tortuous as the heart. Bitter. Sweet. Alive.


The tantalizing aroma of chocolate involves more than three hundred chemical compounds and the flavor can have more than five hundred components.

LORI LONGBOTHAM, Luscious Chocolate Desserts

In my dreams I gorge on chocolates, I roll in chocolates, and their texture is not brittle but soft as flesh, like a thousand mouths on my body, devouring me in fluttering small bites. To die beneath their tender gluttony seems the culmination of every temptation I have ever known.


Look, there's no metaphysics on earth like chocolates.

FERNANDO PESSOA, attributed, A Taste of Heaven

Chocolate quote

Like love, chocolate is always a delight to receive or to give.

MARY JANE FINSAND, The Diabetic Chocolate Cookbook

Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get.

TOM HANKS, Forrest Gump

Strength is the capacity to break a Hershey bar into four pieces with your bare hands - and then eat just one of the pieces.

JUDITH VIORST, Love & Guilt & The Meaning of Life

Oh, divine chocolate!
They grind thee kneeling,
Beat thee with hands praying,
And drink thee with eyes to heaven.

MARCO ANTONIO ORELLANA, attributed, Brief Histories of Almost Anything

Nuts just take up space where chocolate ought to be.


Chocolate is no ordinary food. It is not something you can leave, something you like only moderately. You don't LIKE chocolate. You don't even LOVE chocolate. Chocolate is something you have an AFFAIR with.

GENEEN ROTH, Feeding the Hungry Heart

Reminiscent of childhood memories, luxury, sweetness and sensuality, chocolate is more than just a food -- it is therapy.

CHRISTELLE LE RU, Passion Chocolat

My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished 2 bags of M&M's and a chocolate cake. I feel better already.

DAVE BARRY, attributed, Chicken Soup for the Chocolate Lover's Soul

Nobody knows the truffles I've seen.

GEORGE LANG, Nobody Knows the Truffles I've Seen

Remember the days when you let your child have some chocolate if he finished his cereal? Now, chocolate is one of the cereals.

ROBERT ORBEN, attributed, The Junk Food Companion

Well, folks, it looks like we're up chocolate creek without a popsicle stick.


Chocolate is the most fun material in the food business. It gets soft quickly, you play with it, and in a few minutes it's hard as a rock.

JOSEPH SCHMIDT, attributed, The Chocolate Companion

If there's no chocolate in Heaven, I'm not going.

JANE SEABROOK, Furry Logic Laugh at Life

What is it that makes chocolate universally popular? Clearly it satisfies a natural craving for sweets, but so do many other foods. Or it may be that there are so many kinds of chocolate available to suit everyone's taste. What started out as a bitter drink enjoyed by the natives of the new world in the early 16th century has evolved to become a complex offering of dark, light, liquid, solid, bitter, sweet and semisweet chocolate.

JEAN PARÉ, Chocolate Everything

If there's no chocolate in Heaven ... I'm not going.

Flowers wilt, jewelry tarnishes, and candles burn out ... but chocolate doesn't hang around long enough to get old.

ANONYMOUS, Heavenly Humor for the Chocolate Lover's Soul

A chocolate in the mouth is worth two on the plate.


It was like having a box of chocolates shut in the bedroom drawer. Until the box was empty it occupied the mind too much.

GRAHAM GREENE, The Heart of the Matter

Similarly to tasting wine, tasting chocolate is an art that requires using all senses.

CHRISTELLE LE RU, Passion Chocolat

Anything is good if it's made of chocolate.

JO BRAND, attributed, Chocolate Covered Friendship

Forget love -- I'd rather fall in chocolate!!!


The history of chocolate is an amazing one, dating back over 3000 years to the Aztec and Maya Indians of Central America, most notably, Mexico. They enjoyed a drink called "xocolatl" or "chocolatl," meaning "bitter drink" or "bitter water," that was made from cocoa beans. This beverage was consumed at special occasions with the belief that the beans were a gift sown on earth by the gods and endowed wisdom if eaten. The beans themselves were also valued as a currency; slaves could be bought and sold for 100 cocoa beans!

JEAN PARÉ, Chocolate Everything

Researchers have discovered that chocolate produced some of the same reactions in the brain as marijuana. The researchers also discovered other similarities between the two, but can't remember what they are.

MATT LAUER, NBC's Today Show

The superiority of chocolate, both for health and nourishment, will soon give it the same preference over tea and coffee in America which it has in Spain.

THOMAS JEFFERSON, letter to John Adams, 1785

There are four basic food groups: milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, and chocolate truffels.


Always, I think, I am grateful. In my mind, I follow my chocolate to its beginnings. I see a drop of rain touching red soil, and beneath, a seed waking. Leaves reaching for sifted sunlight. Careful, sure hands unclasping fruit from limbs. A kind donkey pulling a laden wagen. Wise faces bent over an ocean of seeds, summoning sweet from bitter. Roads and rivers and cunning machines that bear the chocolate to me. Someone built that wagon; someone cut that road; someone labored under a beaded brow; someone heeded an inspiration; someone offered love. How wonderful is a world that brings such gifts.

LAURA HILLENBRAND, "Ode to Chocolate"

All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.

CHARLES SCHULZ, attributed, The Red Hat Society Cookbook
