Le Whif chocolate inhaler: Decadence, sans the guilt

Chocoholics can rejoice that someone has finally "bottled" the guilty pleasure in an inhaler, minus the calories.

Having run afoul of April Fools' pranks last week, the Le Whif just sounded too good to us to be true. Then again, why would anyone set up such an elaborate Web site just to get the last laugh?

If this is the real deal out of the Parisian laboratory of Harvard professor David Edwards, chocoholics can rejoice that someone has finally "bottled" the guilty pleasure in an inhaler, minus the calories.

Just be prepared to fork out $53 for 24 chocolate-scented whiffs, which makes this one of the priciest cocoa delights we've come across.

Personally, I think there's no real substitute for the heavenly sensation of dark chocolate melting in your mouth. Not to mention that a study reported by the BBC has indicated that melting chocolate in one's mouth produces an increase in brain activity and heart rate that is more intense than that associated with passionate kissing. Oo la la.

So can Le Whif deliver the same? Well, for those in Paris, the chocolate-scented stick is due out on April 29, in flavors of mint chocolate, raspberry chocolate, mango chocolate, and milk chocolate. The U.S. should get a whiff of the product in late May.
