PARIS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A big bar of chocolate and a hot cup of coffee tastes just as great going up your nose.

Le Whif is a tube that when placed on the mouth and inhaled delivers a small dose of chocolate and coffee powder.

It’s meant for those moments in life when you need to unwind and take a breather.

One hit of Le Whif chocolate – which is made from ground organic chocolate – is only one calorie, so folks can sniff the tasty treat without having to worry about their waistlines.

Le Whif coffee flavor gives a jolt of caffeine equivalent to a shot of light espresso.

Co-creator David Edwards, who’s a professor of biomedical engineering at Harvard University, says, “Le Whif coffee gives the kick of coffee without the cup.”

This is great for people on the go who don’t have much time to sip on a latte but need to keep their energy up.
