Science Fact Friday: Theobroma by Alithographica Science Fact Friday: Theobroma by Alithographica

Since it’s Discount Chocolate Day next week I figured I’d do a relevant Science Fact.

Bonus science fact: A chemically-inclined individual may notice that theobromine does not, in fact, contain any bromine. Theobromine derives its name from the Theobroma plant, which in turn was named for the Greek phrase “food of the gods”.

Interesting, I didn't now that. And it's so similar to caffeine, too. Chemistry is fascinating stuff.

So the molecule looking like a snowman lying on its side can cause so much pain by killing dogs... :fear: What an evil resting snowman!

Oh, okay, I was about to comment on the fact that there was no bromine in it.

Haha. It tricked me at first, too.

Interesting, I originally thought when reading the information that it contained Bromine so I was confused because 'Hey! Isn't that dangerous?' Glad you cleared that up!
It is rather interesting too-especially since I studied chocolate's origins and trafficking for a few lessons-plus assemblies.

Tricky tricky names.

That sounds fun! I've never studied chocolate except for this - anything interesting?

They are... And chemistry isn't a strong point of mine...

Haha, the worst bit about it is that I don't like chocolate, I was mostly interested in the plants if I'm honest...
So no, not really much there was interesting.

Gasp. I adore chocolate. Admittedly, I prefer milk and white chocolate, dark chocolate is too bitter for me - so I know that upsets some chocolate fans too. :B

My Auntie Amanda does to, but the rest of our family are chocoholics XD
I only really like Milk chocolate, but even that is too much for me, white too sweet, dark too bitter, milk is alright but boring.
