I seem to have a reputation of being more than a casual fan of chocolate.

It’s come to the point where multiple friends call me to report if they’ve found any new chocolates, and I often show up here and there with chocolates that are too good not to share.  (Like one of my latest acquisitions, Green and Black’s Maya Gold.)

And then there is the fact that one of my favorite T-shirts says:

I Heart Love Chocolate T-Shirt

(Sorry. There are currently no internet-worthy photos of me actually wearing this shirt.  While photos do exist…I seem to recall one of me wearing it while showing off two 1kg bars of chocolate…let’s just say the picture quality was awful and leave it at that.)


In a minute: I will show you a fun chocolate molecule t-shirt.

First and foremost: It has come to my attention that chocolate is not on the periodic table of elements.

Shocking, I know.

After all, chocolate is a very important element in our lives.   Practically every home contains chocolate, unlike, for example, molybdenum.   (Molybdenum is on the periodic table of elements, but how many of us even know whether we have molybdenum in anything at home?)

(Random fact: Molybdenum is a refractory metal and I actually know how to pronounce it.  It’s more like mull-EHB-dunum than Mollie B. Denim.)

So how can us chocolate lovers show off our affection in a semi-scientific fashion? I ran across this Chocolate Molecule T-Shirt:

I want one!

Better yet, I want one for my sister.  If she wears it, I’ll actually see it.  Plus, she was just telling me she wanted more T-shirts.  And it’s just nerdy enough to be her style…
