London, Apr 11 (ANI): Chocoholics’ dream has finally come true - a sweet treat packed with tiny particles of chocolate and zero calories has been invented!

Brainchild of Paris-based professor David Edwards, boffins have created a chocolate sans calories, which dieters can inhale.

Users breathe chocolate powder into their mouth from the 1.50- pounds plastic cylinder called Le Whif.

It comes in four flavours - raspberry, mint, mango and plain - and can be used several times.

Edwards believes people eat so fast today that they are already on the way towards “breathing” food, The Sun reported.

He said: “We’ve helped move eating habits to their logical conclusion. We call it whiffing.”

Tom Hadfield, who is launching Le Whif in France later this month, said: “It fills your mouth with almost pure chocolate. It tastes really good.”

Others being developed include a mint Whif to be inhaled with lamb.

Hadfield said, “Eventually we could have three course meals this way.” (ANI)
