    Um, you seem to have inexplicably missed the most important benefit:

    Chocolate tastes great and makes you feel happy

    Indeed!


    Do you guys buy chocolate in a bar form, or as cocoa powder to 'bake' with? I love 90% lint chocolate (99% is too much for me, after testing 3 bars), but sometimes I think it needs sprucing up a little... I did create a different version of "Grok rocks" using dried unsweetened cherries though!

    Ahhh you guys. I was just browsing through the blog 'chococolate covered katie'. She's vegan, but most of her desserts are made with fats, nuts, and fruit. They look absolutely decedant...and quite healthy in small doses.

    That's my favorite as well. Searched it out when I saw that Mark recommended it. Sure doesn't taste bitter like most dark chocolate with that high a %! But then, I don't eat it for taste. I keep it in the medicine cabinet! LOL

    It's expensive at WalGreen's. I just bought a box of 10 from Amazon at a discount.
    I use 2 squares per day:
    42 calories
    3 carbs
    3 fat
    1 protein

    I loff Chocolate. 100% Cocoa, unsweetened is the bomb. I never realized how badly sugar was ruining the taste until I started eating it without. Mmmmm.
