I love the sound of how eating quality chocolate could make me smarter and we all know that eating quality chocolate can boost your mood and fill you up but I didn’t know that it could quieten a cough. I will have to try that one next time I have a nagging cough. Quality chocolate is easy to identify due to its taste and texture. It is smooth and velvety and slides off the tongue.
