The Geometry of Chocolate

Was it an equilateral triangle? I angled in for a closer look at the milk chocolate triangle that dangled from my fingers. Or isosceles? Could I apply the Pythagorean Theorem? I examined the triangle from every angle.

Acute angles? Obtuse angles? Right angles? Eating the chocolate triangle, an offshoot from my partner’s giant-sized Toblerone bar, seemed like the right angle to take.

As I enjoyed the milk chocolate with honey and nougat triangle, I wished my tenth grade math teacher had taught not by chalk on blackboard example, but instead by chocolate in hand sample. Geometry had never tasted or smelled so good.

  1. I agree with Nan–anything and everything tastes great with chocolate, dipped in chocolate, stuffed with chocolate or just plain ol’ dark chcolate. . . .sigh, now I crave chocolate–wonder why? Thanks Emsch the Mensch for such an “inspiring” piece 🙂

  2. What a clever geometry session! You must have learned something by the non chocolate way because you rolled out all the terminology, all spelled correctly. You win a prize of a big block of chocolate, any shape you want.
