This is probably the best news I've ever heard.
We all know it's cold and flu season, and if you're anything like me, you are not a fan of cough syrup. I would rather swallow a horse pill than endure the taste of some of those medicines, but when it comes to a sore throat, syrup is more effective. That is, until I learned that chocolate can actually soothe your throat MORE than codeine syrup! Scientists say that sucking on a piece of chocolate and letting it slowly coat your throat can relieve some of the soreness.
