What does your choc choice say about you?

Chocolatier Murray Langham believes the shapes and centres that attract you – and how you play with the wrapper – may be a guide to your inner self.

In a tiny turn-of-the century cottage in New Zealand, in gourmet Greytown’s main street, Langham of Schoc Chocolates creates unique blends of chocolate.

His creations – such as lime and chilli, pink peppercorn, carrot and coriander, fennel, Earl Grey tea, lavender, smoked paprika and basil – end up in chic hotels and in hipsterish cafes throughout New Zealand (in Australia they’re stocked at Perth’s Fresh Provisions and Tamworth’s Weswal Gallery).

“We each know what our favourite chocolate is,” says Langham, taking a break from chocolate making and bearing a plate of curry and pappadum flavoured chocolate.

“What does it mean we eat the same type of chocolate, time and time again?”

When practising as a therapist, Langham became curious about the great number of his clients who just loved chocolate.

He began to observe what sort of chocolates and centres they liked and “gained great insights into their behaviours”.

He’s written two books on the topic – Chocolate Therapy and Hot Chocolate – and believes when we choose a centre it links to the inner part of ourselves that guides our emotions, moods, inner thoughts and self esteem.

Here is a brief version of Langham’s guide to what the various centres mean:
