Chocoholics Divine Desserts produced some very entertaining chocsimiles (chocolate facsimiles of items). For example, previously I sampled their chocolate voodoo doll. Unfortunately, I believe this company may have closed up shop at the end of 2009. This item had been purchased earlier and stored in my chocolate vault.
Chocoholics Divine Desserts semi-sweet Chocolate Patch squares were "guaranteed to stop chocolate cravings for up to 5 minutes!" People ask me if I ever get chocolate withdrawal headaches (similar to those that occur when you give up coffee/caffeine after a day or two). My answer: I wouldn't know. It's been more than 3 1/2 years since I went 24 hours without chocolate. And since I'm overly comfortable in the fact that I will always have chocolate nearby, and not prone to cravings -- as a result of my constant chocolate consumption...perhaps I'm not qualified to medically evaluate the Chocolate Patch. (Oh yes, that, and the fact that I'm not a medical professional.) However, I can convey some important information was printed on the side of the box:
"Directions for Chocolate Patch:
Place one Chocolate Patch on tongue. Do not chew the patch. Chewing may reduce the duration of the effective ingredients. In cases of extreme craving place two chocolate Patches on tongue. In really extreme cases, pour contents of box into mouth. Chew vigorously."
