Sold Whitman's Chocolates for a few years. We all have our favorites. I loved the index chart which helped me select my favorite pieces.

I do enjoy chocolate every once in a while - but it must be the dark chocolate. I don't mind milk chocolate but have always enjoyed dark chocolate much more so. If I do get some chocolate I will go for one with a higher percentage of cacao - at least 70% pure chocolate; but I prefer the 80% or higher. I only buy it "once in a blue moon" and will just have a small amount every once in a while.

I love chocolate any kind but I only have on rare occasions, I could very easily eat way to much.

thanks for the post I know that maybe the benefits will not happen unless I gorge on a lot but knowing what to eat will help me in avoiding the junk I can eat like Mars bars

The darker the better, to almost bitter. A little chocolate might not be extremely healthy, but for me a little dark chocolate every few days keeps me from binging big time

It is just silly to say that chocolate has health benefits. Sure, there may be flavonoids but to get a medicinal dose you'd need to eat way too much chocolate. One little piece a day isn't going to have health benefits.

Unfortunately, I have to be careful or I'll eat enough to get that dose.

I love My Ghirardelli, I love to add it to bananas and strawberries.
I split a small banana and put 6 Chocolate chips on to both sides. Then I put in the microwave for 60 seconds. The Banana stays warm and the Chocolate can spread across the cut surface and oh we love it. It is in my tracker Pat in Maine.

In NC the chocolate at Black Mountain Chocolate Factory is THE BEST. They import fresh beans and make all chocolate fresh in their store. I have toured the factory to see their process. The the dark chocolates are devine!!!

Dark chocolate - yum! It can happily replace so much junk food. Interesting comments.

Belgian chocolate is excellent--when in Mexico, I thought the chocolate candy was so good that instead of ordering dessert I would go to the candy store and pick out one piece of chocolate each evening!!! As a child I liked Hershey's, but either it changed or I did, as it now seems more like wax than candy to me.
