You've surrendered to the temptation of whipped chocolate cream? Now, the French are offering you the "Whiffed" version! Every chocoholic's dream to gorge on this delight but not pack on the pounds has finally come true - here's the ultimate sweet treat that is packed with tiny particles of chocolate and zero calories.

Brainchild of Paris-based professor David Edwards, boffins have created a chocolate sans calories, which dieters can inhale.

Users breathe chocolate powder into their mouth from the 1.50- pounds plastic cylinder called Le Whif.

It comes in four flavours - raspberry, mint, mango and plain - and can be used several times.

Edwards believes people eat so fast today that they are already on the way towards "breathing" food, The Sun reported.

He said: "We've helped move eating habits to their logical conclusion. We call it whiffing."

Tom Hadfield, who is launching Le Whif in France later this month, said: "It fills your mouth with almost pure chocolate. It tastes really good."

Others being developed include a mint Whif to be inhaled with lamb.

Hadfield said, "Eventually we could have three course meals this way."
