Jackie: we're talking about chocolate.
Richard: Yum, yum.
Jackie: Richard, chocolate can be found in everything.
Richard: Yes, it's urn... cakes, biscuits, ice cream...
Jackie: Milk, chocolate milk, puddings, sauces, sweets, you name it choc...
chocolate is everywhere. Did you know Richard, there was, for a short while, that you could buy crisps dipped in chocolate. Does that sound... how does that sound?
Richard: I'm not so sure about that, actually. No, don't like that idea.
Jackie: But, but there is, I mean chocolate, its associated with festivals,
with Christmas, with Easter, Mothers' Day... [Richard: Birthdays] You give it to people when they're ill, you give it to people when they've done something good.
Richard: There's a very simple reason for that, Jackie. Its because its
delicious and everybody loves chocolate.
Jackie: Everybody loves chocolate.
Richard: Now then Jackie, we love chocolate, but there is chocolate and
there is chocolate. Lots of different sorts: there's cooking chocolate, dark chocolate, milk chocolate and white chocolate, isn't there? [Jackie: Yes] And what's the difference between all of those?
Jackie: Well, cooking chocolate is the most basic, Richard. Its just cocoa
solids and cocoa butter, really.
Richard: And not very nice just to eat on its own, is it?
Jackie: Because then we have dark chocolate which tastes nicer because its
got added sugar.
Jackie: And er... added fat as well. It has a higher ratio of cocoa, of course.
And then of course we have the more popular one, which is the milk chocolate.
Richard: My favourite. Plain milk chocolate.
Jackie: Added sugar, added fat, plus, of course, either milk powder or
Jackie: A lower percentage of... of cocoa.
Richard: Right, okay. And what about white chocolate, then?
Jackie: Well, its not really chocolate, Richard.
Jackie: Well, because it doesn't actually contain cocoa solids, it contains
only cocoa butter.
Richard: Okay. Its still tasty though. I do like white chocolate.
Jackie: I know. Um... now the interesting thing is, you know that um... they
say that dogs can't eat chocolate.
Richard: Yes, very bad for dogs.
Jackie: Right. That's because its got er... theobromine in it.
Richard: Right, okay.
Jackie: Which dogs find very difficult to process. But actually that's only
found in cocoa solids and not in the butter. [Richard: Okay) and there's no cocoa solids in white chocolate.
Richard: So white chocolate is okay for dogs.
Jackie: White chocolate is okay for dogs.
Richard: Mmm, I'm not sure though. I wouldn't give it to ours though. I think
they are fat enough as it is, to be honest.
Jackie: However... however, you know humans can die of chocolate if they
eat too much.
Richard: And how much chocolate would you need to eat?
Jackie: Well, if you eat 40 bars of Dairy Milk, Dairy Milk, Richard, notice this,
your favourite. If you eat eat 40 bars of Dairy Milk, it would be fatal.
Richard: Oooh, yes, I think I'd feel very sick as well [laughs].
Jackie: But it's interesting because when you eat chocolate it does make you
feel better, it has that kind of feel good factor about it.
Richard: Mmm, it certainly does.
Jackie: But then you feel guilty after... having eaten so much afterwards.
Richard: Yes, that's why they call it the guilty pleasure.
Jackie: Mmm, you like milk chocolate.
Richard: I love milk chocolate.
Jackie: And I much prefer dark chocolate. We also eat them very differently
Richard: Yes. I open the bar and then scoff the lot, straight away.
Jackie: Whereas I take a tiny little bit and I keep it in my mouth until it
melts slowly. Yeah, you'll eat a whole bar, what, in 10 minutes and I can make a bar of dark milk* Toblerone last two evenings.
Richard: I just can't resist.
Jackie: Um... yeah, what about you, the listeners, how much chocolate do
Richard: And how do you eat it?
Jackie: We'd love to hear from you.
*She means dark chocolate not milk.
