The Reading / Listening - Level 0

There is a new chocolate to help you look young. It is too good to be true. It keeps away wrinkles. The name is 'Esthechoc,' from the words 'esthetic' (meaning all things beautiful) and 'chocolate'. We can buy it next month. It will be expensive. The maker wants young, rich business people to buy it.



The chocolate has the same chemical that makes flamingos pink. A 50 to 60-year-old can look 20 years younger. People can see changes in just three weeks. It took over ten years to make. We can only buy boxes of 21 bars. This is one a day for three weeks. Other scientists want more research on Esthechoc.
