Calling all chocolate and coffee lovers! The latest trend in eating chocolate and drinking coffee has arrived! Le Whif, the first '??breathable food,'? was recently launched in the US at Dylan'??s Candy Bar in NYC where I met the clever inventors from Harvard and tested the product.
Skepticism was written all over my face as I listened to the founders talk about Le Whif and how it works, but by the time I left, I was sold. Le Whif is a cool lipstick-like device that is 100 % biodegradable and comes with its own storage case (sold separately). It delivers 8-10 puffs of microscopic-sized breathable tastes in chocolate, chocolate raspberry, chocolate mint (my favorite) and coffee. When I inhaled it for the first time it caught me off-guard, as the powder shot to the back of my throat and caused me to cough. NOTE: take small puffs and the particles will disperse on the insides of your mouth and front lip, as they were designed to do.
The best part of Le Whif is that each '??whif'? contains 300mg of pure organic dark (47%) chocolate with less than one calorie and one coffee '??whif'? contains the equivalent of a single shot of espresso. Once you master the technique and get your head around experiencing chocolate and coffee through an inhalant, it is definitely a fast and economical way to satisfy a craving. Nothing will ever replace eating chocolate or drinking that hot cup of mocha, but Le Whif is a great supplement. Le Whif is currently available for purchase online at www.lewhif.com and in store at Dylan'??s Candy Bar in New York and Cardullo'??s in Boston. Le Whif retails for $3.00 per whif and $8.00 per 3 pack (for this price, it is worth a try).
