You love chocolate. You love it so much that those around you often utter the phrase "if you love chocolate so much, then you probably just should marry it." You may not be able to marry a delicious hunk of the good stuff, yet, but that doesn't mean you can't study it. One renowned institution of higher learning lets you do just that, obtaining a Ph.D in the process. That's right. You can become a doctor of chocolate -- a doc choc if you will.

England's Cambridge University just unveiled the 3.5 year multidisciplinary Ph.D on chocolate. Why doesn't it behave like other soft solids and melt sooner? What can we learn from its chemical properties? Why does it taste so good mixed with peanut butter? You'll learn all of this and more.
