STUDY: Music Can Make Chocolate Taste Better

This may make your holidays a little sweeter!

Listening to different musical notes while eating chocolate can change how it tastes, according to new research.

Food scientists at the University of Oxford have found they can alter the sensation of creaminess in a piece of chocolate by playing different sounds to people as they eat.

A series of soft flute notes could make a piece of dark chocolate taste more creamy while short, sharp notes plucked on a violin can make the same chocolate taste sharper or bitter.

The researchers are now working with a consortium of chocolatiers in Belgium to produce a box of confectionary that can be eaten along with an accompanying soundtrack.

Either way this study ultimately proves that music and chocolate are good for you…. so indulge!
