  • Dark Chocolate

    I've heard time and again that dark chocolate is supposed to be better for you than milk chocolate. What I want to know is that while it might be better, does it have any nutritional value? I know you can't gorge on chocolate or anything, but does it have any health benefits?

    If you eat dark chocolate with a very high cocoa level. Something like over 78 percent, then there are actually some health benefits such as antioxidants and a few others. At the same time, I wouldn’t call it a health food.

        If you're look for a treat that isn't fruit, it's definitely better than pretty much anything else out there. I would definitely recommend it. As enviroTodd says, it's not exactly a health snack, but at the same time, it's not like eating a chocolate cake, either. So have a bit a and enjoy!

          What exactly would you call a health food that you'd consider a treat enviroTodd? And I don't mean fruits or vegetables. I'm just curious as to what food you think is delicious and good enough not to upset your "balance" or "flow" or whatever.

            Glad to know that it is the healthiest chocolate, even if it's still just a treat. At first I didn't like dark chocolate all that much but then it really grew on me. I was actually surprised when I found out it went well with red wine haha.
