In an article published in the Mirror (UK) about a study performed at Yale University’s School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut, humans will choose carbohydrate-rich chocolate over cheese when the option is presented.
In the study, volunteers were asked to put monetary bids on a variety of different foods. The researchers found the volunteers would place higher bids for things like cake, chocolate, and sugary treats than for savory snacks like cheese.
While this might be the answer to the ultimate question of sweet versus savory, we all know that 42 is the answer to question of life, the universe, and everything.
Push come to shove, I have to admit that I would hedge my bets and put my bid down on a chocolate cheesecake so I could have my (chocolate) + (cheese) ++ cake and eat it, too.
What do you think about the study? If you were presented with the option of bidding for something chocolate over something cheese or savory, what would you do? Are you with me on the chocolate cheesecake or do you have another preference?
