Ever crave chocolate? Crave it like crazy?
It doesn’t happen to me often but one day last week it did! Yikes! I went through my desk looking for a stray Hershey’s kiss. Nothing. I went upstairs to the lobby looking for candy in the showcase–we have a cafe and bookstore at work. Nothing. Then, I went to the few co-workers left in the building. Nada!
|They have faces!|
Doesn’t anyone eat chocolate anymore? Or, maybe they did…all of it! Finally, a dear friend came up with a tiny little Tootsie Roll. Better than nothing, but it still didn’t satisfy the deep crave for a Snickers Bar or Reeses Peanut Butter Cup (or two or three) or some peanut M & M’s. Lots of peanut M & M’s!
What causes this kind of craving? I had to know! So, I cruised the internet and found the answer on Heart of Wisdom. It’s a magnesium deficiency!
She says: “Studies show over 75% of Americans are dangerously deficient in magnesium. Magnesium is an essential factor in more aspects of health than any other mineral, yet rarely measured by doctors.
I wrote about the history of M & M’s recently…maybe I was having chocolate cravings at that time, too. Who knows! But they are truly fun…they have faces… and a really interesting story behind them. Did you know that Mars and Hershey were the originators of M&M’s way back at the time of the Spanish Civil War? Read more here: M & M Candies
