I don't consider it a cheat, but a treat. It's not something I allow myself every day, but it is considered on the OK list.
I rarely have more than one or two squares - generally 50 or so cals - so I don't think about it much at all. Even if it's less-than-optimal chocolate (I'm a fan of the Chocolove cherry almond bar, and I think it's 55%).
I don't consider it a cheat at all. I have a square every day with lunch.
ETA: I'm talking about 82-90% chocolate

Sassy: Revised - my primal log
I consider it part of the 20% of non-primal.
Totally my bad on the legume. I had no idea. The part we eat though isn't a fruit, it's a pit/seed.
Anyhoo, what holds 100% cocoa into a bar shape? Seems like something would be needed to form it....
I thought the cocoa butter holds chocolate in a bar shape? I don't think the sugar does, even in a less than 100% cocoa bar.
Zone diet on and off for several years....worked, but too much focus on exact meal composition
Primal since July 2010...skinniest I've ever been and the least stressed about food
