Chocoholic

A chocoholic is a person who craves or compulsively consumes chocolate. There is some medical evidence to support the existence of actual addiction to chocolate.

The word chocoholic, coined in 1968, is a portmanteau of "chocolate" and "alcoholic." 'Chocoholism' is quite common. In studies of food cravings, chocolate and chocolate confectioneries almost always top the list of foods people say they crave.
