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.

Call me obsessive, but just reading this article triggered me and I am thinking about raiding an Easter basket I prepared for a gift. I won't... but it is calling out to me in a loud, overweight voice!!

I'm currently trying Lindt Organic Chocolate, 83% cocoa. To me, it has more of a chocolately taste than say, Hershey's Special Dark, which my husband likes. The Lindt doesn't taste bitter to me. It just leaves my mouth a little dry after eating it.

It's a shame for you over the Pond that soon you won't be able to get British chocolate any more, except if someone brings it over as a gift. British chocolate is SO much better than most American chocolate (not tried Xocai, sounds interesting, but Hershey's? YUK!) Having said that, Swiss and Belgian chocolate is even better then British chocolate, not sure if they will be banned for import too.
