Finally, The Age Of Snortable Chocolate Has Arrived

Say hello to Palcohol's new hardcore cousin, Coco Loko - a cocoa powder you snort like cocaine that's unlikely to be approved by the FDA for the foreseeable future.

However, doctors are already anxious about the safety risks involved in people shooting chocolate up their noses.

This takes chocolate addictions to a whole new level. Along with cacao powder, the product contains gingko bilboa, taurine and guarana - ingredients commonly found in energy drinks like Red Bull and Monster.

The entire thing is created to give you a major endorphin rush, making you energized and productive for about a half hour.

First came Four Loko, the alcoholic energy drink dubbed "blackout in a can". The end result of using Coko Loko will be an up to an hour long energy boost without the side effects of a sugar crash.

He then invested $10,000 of his own money into concocting his own version of the European snuff solution from "raw cacao powder, " which he claimed to have created from scratch over a two-month period.

"Some versions, they just burned too much", Anderson said. Dr. Andrew Lane, director of the Johns Hopkins Sinus Center, told the Post that while there's zero data on the effects of inhaling powdered chocolate up your nose, he's at least not concerned about it turning people into addicts. "First, it's not clear how much of each ingredient would be absorbed into the nasal mucus membranes".

Snorting chocolate is not something new. (Umm, so, exactly like cocaine?) He says he takes it as an alcohol-alternative when he goes out, and also during long vehicle rides, at music festivals, and any social situation that makes him feel anxious. He added that the Loko could get stuck in your nose, and that the chocolate could mix with your mucus, forming a paste that could block your sinuses.

Coco Loko is sold in containers that contain 10 servings and cost about $25. "Certainly this is better than using an illicit drug". Anderson, whose brother is a rapper named Bezz Believe, says the product is popular in the hip-hop community and near college campuses in Houston and Atlanta.
