Am a total chocoholic but was spoiled by European parents. Prefer good quality European dark chocolate over most domestic products. There’s a reason the domestic ones are called a candy bar and not chocolate. They don’t contain enough cocoa butter to even be considered chocolate on the world market

Hate dark chocolate! Love Milk chocolate! So I will indulge on occasion with the one I love--milk! As long as I watch the portion size I am good to go.

Only German chocolate for me. Milka is my favorite brand. But I am not suppose to eat it...Coco is high in phosperous. Good thing I don't crave it all to often.

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.
