Chili Chocolates May Help You Burn Calories

Um, yes please!

An extract from dry chili peppers known as dihydrocapsiate has been found to speed up the body’s metabolism. It’s already sold as a diet supplement in the US and Japan, but Britain may start using it in food.

A Japanese food company has submitted a request to the Food Standards Agency to start putting the chemical in chocolates and other foods.

This sounds too good to be true — but if it is true we totes want some chili chocolates!!
