If you are a chocolate lover, you'll be thrilled to hear the latest chocolate candy nutrition facts. For years I have been warned against chocolate. You know the complaints.
"It's bad for you."
"Chocolate gives you pimples."
"Chocolate is full of caffeine." And so forth...
Well, the good news is that more and more researchers are discovering that chocolate really isn't all that bad.
As a matter of fact, there are actual reports on the health benefits of chocolate. I was pleased to discover that chocolate candy, in moderation, can be good for you.

The latest chocolate candy nutrition facts available state that there are genuine health benefits of chocolate, specifically dark chocolate.

I say, "Hurray!" We can all enjoy a sampling of our favorite treat and then piously declare we are eating it for our health. Sounds good to me! :) Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
