This is a little late for anyone who’s had more than their fair share of Easter eggs, but scientists have invented Le Whif, an inhaler which provides users with a calorie free chocolate fix.
The gadget lets users breathe in chocolate to curb cravings and satisfy their sweet tooth.
Invented by Harvard professor David Edwards, Le Whif comes in four different flavours: raspberry, mint, mango and plain.
“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.”
But what about the oral satisfaction?
The pleasure of chocolate isn’t just the smell and taste, it’s the melt-in-the-mouth sensation and I don’t think you’d get that by whiffing.
