As a recovering chocoholic, having abstained from it for a number of years, when I decided to get back together with Lady Cacao, it was after conversing with some chocolate scholars, doing my own extensive online research & of course my own personal experiential research into whole fresh unfermented cacao beans (your nibs & most all powder is fermented & roasted) &/or minimally processed high quality chocolates...I came to this conclusion: It's great! Great for health & happiness. But not for everyday consumption. Long story short, its still a bean with it's attendant anti-nutrients, as well as some pretty strong alkaloids (one of the reasons we/others are crazy about it).

I can do that, but more often than not, I scarf the whole bar in 1 sitting, maybe 2 if it's a big bar.
But by all means, have fun & enjoy your Crio Bru to the max! Not trying to poop on yer party...
