I see good reason to pleasure the imagination with books and the body with chocolate!
The right kind of chocolate makes our brains secrete endorphines, thus stimulating happiness.Dark choclate can lower blood pressure and help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Its the compounds called "neuro active alkoloids" that may contribute to the euphoric feelings. Like good books it could leave you with an addiction.

I like some choocy whilst reading a good book (you need to be alone or else someone will nick your chocolate). If I am reading a good supernatural/horror tale then I love a glass of bourbon.

CR - i see amazingly you have some strange folk who think your initial post adds nothing to the discussion ??
How weird is that as we wouldn't have a discussion otherwise ??
Reading and Chocolate - distracting - i can't concentrate on a book when i'm fighting with a toblerone

Yes I agree that reading and eating chocolate is a winning combination, and as such, I have studied further into the mechanics of just this subject and the results were quite surprising. I found that not only is the act of eating chocs whilst reading pleasurable, I also discovered to my absolute joy that the genre of your book is directly linked to certain bars of chocolate! For instance, an action packed adventure book is enhanced ten-fold by a peanut packed Snickers! It makes so much sense! Here are a few other suggestions for you to savour:
Romance = Turkish Delight, saving a last Rolo for the final chapter.
Thriller = Something segmenty to coincide with the twists and turns of the plot. Reference: Terrys Chocolate Orange/Toblerone.
Autobiography = Any of the 'duo' bars. One stick for the past and one for the present. See Twix, Twirl, Kit-Kat, Drifter and even Bounty!
Comedy = Something bonkers. eg Cream egg, Caramac, Walnut Whip.

Let me know how you get on folks. I'm off to read the paper with an After Eight.
(Which makes no sense at all, as reading the paper is a morning thing to do, and After Eights are an after dinner mint.) Mental.

How about EATING chocolate and READING a good book ABOUT chocolate? Check out "Thorntons - My Life In The Family Business". The cover alone will make you drool. I shouldn't promote this because I had a big hand in writing it, but what the heck! Chocaholics, your prayers have been answered.

The best thing ever. Nice and cosy and if it's winter and raining, it just can't be beaten.

I don't think it matters what you read with - or how you enjoy it most - as long as you read!! I am a bit of a Chocaholic - but I rarely eat it while I am reading! I prefer to savour each individually! But - whatever works for you!!!

chocolate and a good book join the 2 together and have a book called chocolate ha ha

A nice good read for me would be: a large hot mug of coffee or hot chocolate (preferably Nescafe as they have many flavours like latte and vanilla, caramel is pretty good too!), a bedside lamp, and a few scented candles to really relax u, that normally does the trick for me. Oh, and a book too! How can I forget!

A lovely hot bath, a bar of Bournville,a glass or three of red wine and a good book.
Heaven. (Although I can't always remember what I've read the next day!!!)

The combination of Organica white soya chocolate and Ted Hughes poetry is surprisingly great...
Try it and see...

Maybe you should stick with Minstrels the first time, as they melt in your mouth not in your hand...

Guess I understand it, but I personally love a large pint glass of coke with ice, and a plate of shortbread buscuits :)

Yes reading and chocolate do go together. By the way chocolate isn't just a woman thing one of the biggest chocoholics I've ever met is a man.

Sounds like everyone will enjoy the much anticipated book on Thorntons then - Thorntons - My Life in the Family Business by Peter Thornton! - out in October from Tomahawk Press!

Agree wholeheartedly with Mark Cheshire, a good book and a bedside lamp. Scrumptious!
