P. Rogers Ph.D, Institute of Food Research

Friendship

‘I never met a chocolate I didn’t like,’

D. Troi, Star Trek

‘There’s nothing better than a good friend except a good friend with chocolate,’

From ‘The Pickwick Papers’ Charles Dickens.

Love

‘All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and again doesn’t hurt,’

Charles M. Schulz

It's Essential Nature

‘Caramels are only a fad. Chocolate is a permanent thing,’

M.S.Hershey

‘Chocolate: here today.. gone today!’

It's Infinite Variety

‘Life is like a box of chocolates... You never know what you’re going to get,’

Forrest Gump

Health

‘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

Therapy

 ‘Strength is the ability to break a chocolate bar into 4 pieces with your bare hands- and then eat just one of those pieces,’

Judith Viorst

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

Tribute

‘I owe it all to the little chocolate doughnuts,’

John Belushi

And the T-shirt...

‘Put the chocolate in the bag and no one gets hurt!’

‘Emergency Alert: If the wearer of this shirt is found vacant, listless or depressed- Administer Chocolate Immediately!’

‘I take chocolate from strangers.’
