I think, like m&ms, the appeal of the chocolate chips is the small size and the fact that I can get a quick chocolate fix with just a few in my hand, slowly melted in my mouth and savored for their flavor and texture. The chips are nice and smooth whereas the m&ms are a wonderful combination of melted chocolate with that nice crunchy shell. Yum.
The bottom line is that chocolate brings about endorphins and endorphins bring about a wonderful feeling of contentment and having a handful of chocolate, whether chips or m&ms, provides a nice little lift in the middle of the day. Or at the end. Or the beginning. And so presents the problem. I can't keep my hands out of the cupboard.
Ah, chocolate. Soothes the savage beast. Or is that music?
