COCOMAMAAlso known as COCAMAMA
Goddess of Health, Happiness and Recreational Drug-taking. But not the Goddess of Chocolate!In fact, she was a flirty female who was cut in half by jealous lovers and subsequently transformed into the world's first coca plant. Men who managed to satisfy their woman's sexual needs were rewarded with a munch on the coca leaves afterwards. From which possibly springs the tradition of having a cigarette after sex.
Although the coca plant does contain a tiny amount of cocaine, it also contains many other nutrients and stimulants that are extremely good for you if you want to keep on the go without dangerous after-effects. (At least, according to this month's scientific reports — next month there'll be another with opposing views).
We could also mention a certain well-known brand of soft drink, but we don't want to get sued. If you live in Peru at a high altitude it is up to you. Coca leaves are not illegal as far as we know. Who needs chocolate?
