The Doctor sniffed at the piece of chocolate in his hand.  Through the foil, it didn't smell like anything in particular, other than aluminum.  Without ceremony, he unwrapped it, popped it in his mouth, and chewed.  Analyzing its chemical content by taste, he could identify theobromine, caffeine, phenylethylamine, anandamide, various sugars, fats, and vitamins.  He swallowed the softened lump of chocolate with a bit of disappointment.  Most humans made chocolate into some sort of epiphanic experience. 

At first he wondered if it was because his brain blocked the reception of phenylethylamine and anandamide.  Turning on those receptors, he didn't feel any differently.  Resigned, he turned his attention to other things.

"Not like that!"  Susan, his granddaughter, said after sensing his disappointment.  "Here, like this.  Let it melt first."  She took another piece, more as an excuse for seconds.  She squinted her eyes closed in appreciation and bliss.  "You try!" 

Incredulous, the Doctor took the piece offered.  This time, he let it rest in his mouth.  With a bit of impatience, he increased the blood flow to the tissues in his mouth so that the sweet would melt.  As the cocoa butters melted, a warmth spread wherever the melting chocolate touched.  The warmth grew, until the flavors exploded in his mouth in a swirl of creamy sweetness, and loamy cocoa. 

The flavors lingered, even after the chocolate was gone.  "I believe that more experimentation is necessary," he said as he reached for another piece.
