Le Whiff - New chocolate inhaler that comes complete with no guilt
Le Whif, which launched a few days ago, combines chocolate and aerosol science in a zero calorie chocolate inhaler. The product started in 2008 as part of a culinary art experiment executed by Harvard professor David Edwards and his students.

We are befuddled by the Perugina Easter Milk Chocolate Egg "with a surprise."

What we do know is that its milk chocolate and its made by Perugina, which is a great Italian chocolate maker. So whatever the "surprise" is, we're sure its worth the curiousity!
