Science Says Chocolate Chip Cookies Are Like Cocaine
Typically, I'm all for supporting science. This is not one of those times.
According to WHDH, the delightfully delicious and delectable treat known as the chocolate chip cookie might have some not-so-delightful addictive properties.
Research apparently has shown that ingredients in those magnificent cookies combine for an addictive treat. The sugar seems to be the primary culprit here. According to the report, the sugar can cause similar addictive responses to that of cocaine.
Evidently, even the itty bitty little chocolate chips are trouble, too! According to the report, there's an ingredient in the chips that can trigger an addictive part of the brain in the same way that marijuana does.
I guess the next time you go grab a pack of chocolate chip cookies, think twice. You may end up with a chocolate chip cookie addiction.
I think I'm already there, because I most definitely love those little suckers. I don't even want to think about living in a world where the ooey-gooey goodness of a chocolate chip cookie is dangerous for me.
I'm just going to assume these researchers made a huge mistake, and that it's all a lie.
