John Travolta Collects Hot Chocolate
Posted by Adam
JOHN Travolta has come out of the closet — as a secret hot chocolate collector.
The actor — who raises children Ella, 12, and Benjamin, two, with wife Kelly Preston — says the sweet drink reminds him of Christmas, and he loves the way different varieties from around the world have very different tastes.
“It represents winter wonderlands, it represents Christmas. I’ve collected various types of cocoa from around the world,” he said.
He then showed talk show host Ellen DeGeneres a number of different types, explaining how Brazilian cocoa powder has a “hint of cinnamon and pepper” which differentiates it from types from other countries.
However, a seemingly unimpressed Ellen replied, “Smells like chocolate.”
John, 58, went on to explain that people should be careful how they handle cocoa powder because any impurities from air or touch can affect its quality.
“Never blow on it. Like a fine wine, it changes the quality of the chocolate. So, never, ever blow on it,” he said.
