What is up with our obsession with black stuff?!

in coffee •  last year

It seems like we are all obsessing over black / brownish substances and that made me wonder why?

Why are we craving black foods and are willing to go to war for black gold? Is there a correlation between color and our fondness for the product?

Chocolate

Who doesn't suffer from chocolate cravings from time to time? I know I do!

Caviar

Expensive as h... but soo delicious! And yes, it is black.

Cola

Even though we know this product isn't healthy we continuously fill our bodies with cola. Is it the color that has made this particular soda the most popular beverage?

Coffee

This drink doesn't need too much explanation. It is as black as it gets and people can barely get through their days without it. One might even throw out the word "Addiction" when talking about black coffee.

Coal

Even though the significance of coal will likely decrease over time, this product has been an essential energy source throughout the industrialized evolution and has been traded at high profits. We have simply been dependent on coal for a very long time now.

Oil

Nations have gone to war for this product. Fortunately renewable energy is gaining importance these years, but we are still totally dependent on oil.

A correlation?

So let me know what you think. Are there in fact a correlation or am I completely off here? Are we obsessed with black stuff!

Good to see another Danish person here on the platform. Maybe time for a steem meetup in Copenhagen soon?

I think the connection is happiness-promoting values. The colour is a non-essential.

Hej Mughat

Jeg vidste slet ikke du var dansk :)

Skønt at se at Steemit også er populært på disse kanter. Jeg er SÅ frisk på et Meetup!
Jeg har aldrig været så entusiastisk over noget andet medie før som jeg er for Steemit og vil meget gerne gøre hvad jeg kan for at promovere platformen.

Tak fordi du skrev og lad os endelig holde kontakten
