‘Snocolate’ is the Berlin trend of sinfully and delicious pleasure
Already, in some Berlin evenings, the consumption of cocoa, the gold of Maya and Aztecs, would be taking unprecedented shapes. We are talking about cocoa sniffing and snorting. Not only concentrated pills to be ingested, not only creams to exploit the effect of brown powder, but the cocoa sniffing like the cocaine.
The effects on the production of Endorphins are greats, and the doses to inhale in one shot would give about 15 minutes of euphoria due to the cocoa fat in the brain. It’s the Theobromine content, a natural alkaloid also present in the leaves of tea, would in fact lead to a temporary excitation state, but without the hallucinogenic effects.
Excessive consumption, however, could degenerate into intoxication, with adverse health consequences. A madness, in short, is like sniffing coffee or the like to stay awake.
Belgian chocolate master Dominique Persoone has even devoted himself to creating the best sniffing cocoa blends. Gourmet recipes for bustling, the new frontier of metropolitan boredom. A lot of night clubs in Berlin, are offering cocoa to be sniffed into the early hours instead.
Residents and party people of the German capital have apparently chosen chocolate as their brand new drug of choice, snorting it at electronic nights across the Clubs of Berlin City. A new wave of snorting lines of cocoa is spreading wide above Berlin’s clubs, with dedicated events now offering it in place of alcohol and drugs like cocaine and ecstasy.
