Chocolate tastes better from an orange cup

News of the day: Hot chocolate out of an orange cream cup tastes better

Picture stolen from www.gizmodo.com

According to an article of 2013 based on an empirical study on 57 participants, it tastes best if it comes out of an orange cup. White cups were the worst.

Also, cream cups are making chocolate slighlty sweeter with a bit of a better aroma.

The colour of the recipient where you serve food and drinks can enhance some of its attributes, like flavour and aroma. There's no fix rule to tell which colour enhances what food. This varies depending on the type of food but the truth is that the effect is there. Companies should pay more attention to the recipient because it has a a lot more potential than what you imagine.


Well, you can decide for yourself what is the take home message of this article 🙂 If unsure, I suggest a field study en detail with the delicious Dutch Bensdorp chocolate.

SPAM Mail: Nigerian Astronaut stuck in space

Sometimes I'm wondering if our University-Spam filter is really enabled. But once in a while, there are some really funny Spam mails around. This one is quite old and tells the story about a stuck Nigerian Astronaut, that is stuck in Space because the CCCP was breaking apart and so he was forgotten. Now they want to collect money in order to return back to earth 🙂

Dear Mr. Sir,

REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE-STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL

I am Dr. Bakare Tunde, the cousin of Nigerian Astronaut, Air Force Major Abacha Tunde. He was the first African in space when he made a secret flight to the Salyut 6 space station in 1979. He was on a later Soviet spaceflight, Soyuz T-16Z to the secret Soviet military space station Salyut 8T in 1989. He was stranded there in 1990 when the Soviet Union was dissolved. His other Soviet crew members returned to earth on the Soyuz T-16Z, but his place was taken up by return cargo. There have been occasional Progrez supply flights to keep him going since that time. He is in good humor, but wants to come home.

In the 14-years since he has been on the station, he has accumulated flight pay and interest amounting to almost $ 15,000,000 American Dollars. This is held in a trust at the Lagos National Savings and Trust Association. If we can obtain access to this money, we can place a down payment with the Russian Space Authorities for a Soyuz return flight to bring him back to Earth. I am told this will cost $ 3,000,000 American Dollars. In order to access the his trust fund we need your assistance."
