Can chocolate keep you younger looking? It is too good to be true. Scientists have made an anti-ageing chocolate. It keeps away wrinkles and helps the skin look younger. It is called 'Esthechoc,' from the words 'esthetic' (meaning all things beautiful) and 'chocolate'. The makers will start selling it from next month. No one knows the price yet. It will probably be expensive. The lab hopes young, rich business people will buy it.

The chocolate has the chemical that makes flamingos pink. Scientists say the chemical can make the skin of a 50 to 60-year-old look 20 years younger. People can see changes in their skin in just three weeks. It took over ten years of research to make. Over 3,000 took part in tests. The chocolate is only in boxes of 21 bars. This is one a day for three weeks. Other scientists say more research is needed on Esthechoc.
