There’s a thingy on the market right now that’s supposed to help satiate cravings for chocolate by seemingly delivering a rocket-shot of chocolate-scented aerosol directly to the olfactory oligarchy by way of a nifty little inhaler. The device is called “Le Whif,” and it’ll come in four species of chocolate flavors: Raspberry, mango, mint, and plain ol’ chocolate. Here’s what its inventor, Harvard Professor David Edwards has to say off the whole shebang:
“Over the centuries we’ve been eating smaller and smaller quantities at shorter and shorter intervals. It seemed to us that eating was tending toward breathing, so, with a mix of culinary art and aerosol science, we’ve helped move eating habits to their logical conclusion. We call it whiffing.”
Right. So, you’ll carry one of these things around in your purse, man-satchel, tote bag, or hip-slung accessories pouch and pull it out at seemingly appropriate times to get a relieving blast of chocolate particles, much like any conventional addict would take a hit of anything on the go in a fast and convenient way. This is an exceptional invention, and may just take off, if the thing’s priced to move. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more about this device, but for now, just enjoy the picture, and the promise of some satisfying bursts of nostril-bound air.
