With Valentine's Day just around the corner, who can help but think of love, romance, and of course, chocolate! As most of us know, chocolate is wonderful in waking life - can you imagine what it would taste like in a lucid dream, with senses heightened? This month's excerpt includes two delicious examples of experiencing the sensation of taste in lucid dreams.




Chocolatey Lucid Dreams

September 29, 2000

I was in a crowd watching bicycles go by, and there was one bicycle that was for 5 people; all the crowd was amazed. After the cyclists went by I was walking home and there was a chocolate truck that was leaking out the sides, all over the place, forming big puddles of melted chocolate. I became lucid and flew up in the air. Just then I remembered another benefit of lucid dreaming, which is indulging in foods that one normally shouldn't eat too much of. There were POOLS of rich, deep, dark, velvety chocolate, and I let myself sink into it. It was so smooth, and it tasted like liquid heaven - much more intense than RL. I thought about diving into the chocolate, but even though I knew breathing wouldn't be a problem, I decided just to enjoy the taste. It was far better than anything I've ever tasted while awake.

I dreamed that I was in a little room or kitchen, stirring [or *folding*, actually, for you gastronomes] a very large bowl of chocolate mousse. It was light (both color and texture) and fluffy, something like thick whipped cream. I decided that there wasn't enough of the mousse, and that it wasn't dark and chocolatey enough for my taste, so I added another ingredient which resembled corn syrup but was dark chocolate. The mousse grew to a much larger size in the bowl - so big in fact, that it was going over the edges of the large container! I was using a big flat utensil to stir it, and kept trying to flip the oozing chocolate concoction back into the bowl. [The texture was very interesting - somewhat firm and flexible, but also still "moussey" and almost browny-like.] Finally I got it all to stay in the bowl, and brought it out to another room where Adastra was lying back on a couch or bed. There were large stacks of large, thin chocolate chip cookies sitting around him, an! d he was munching on one when I came out. The stacks of cookies looked sort of like tall piles of tortillas. I sat cross-legged behind where A's head was, and took one of the cookies and tasted it. I felt guilty about eating it, especially because there were so many piles of the cookies. I remembered that I was only dreaming though, and felt very happy that I could enjoy as much as I liked. [Not sure if I was lucid before that time] I said, "Ha! wait for this!" and took the bowl of chocolate and dipped my hand in, scooping out a big, fluffy amount. I slapped it onto the cookie and put another one on top to make a sandwich. I took a bite and it was the most rich and wonderful taste I could imagine. The chocolate filling ooozed out the edges, and I licked it off my fingers. mmmmmmmm
