Great news chocolate lovers! The next time you have a chest cold or cough, better have some chocolate on hand.

Metro Source News reports that a study by British researchers found there are more benefits to eating chocolate than we thought.

... more than 160 patients, randomly prescribing either codeine cough syrup or a chocolate-based medicine called ROCOCO.  What they found is a significant improvement of symptoms in two days in patients taking the chocolately medicine, compared to cough syrup.

They think it's because chocolate is stickier, forming a protective coating on the throat.

I always found that the best cure for a cough was Ramen Noodles! Seriously, I am not sure if it id the warm broth or the super high amount of sodium!? But when all else fails, it is Ramen Noodles that do the trick.
