The dark chocolate that is 70% and upwards dark chocolate.

Benefits are becoming more evident all the time. Good for your heart and arteries, improves cholesterol and circulation as well as good for your skin too!

You need 4oz. A day for these benefits to be maximized.

Hurry now and get you some!

Get some with coconut in it for extra benefit. Lol

Does milk chocolate have any benefits? I don't like the dark chocolate...:)

Yes, yes, yes. Happy days are here again......

I like my chocolate like my women, dark and sweet.

Costco had these bags of super dark chocolate covered coconut. very good. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 6 years ago -

Dot, unfortunately not. It's weaker in it's cacao content. That's the good stuff.

I like it better too but I'm starting to like the dark much more now. It's kind of an acquired taste!


Wicked, is it full of sugar? 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 6 years ago -

Here is some info on milk and dark chocolate:

"Although milk chocolate contains flavenoids, it doesn't provide the same benefits as dark chocolate. This is not just due to the lower levels of flavenoids contained in milk chocolate, but to a possible interaction between the flavenoids and the milk in milk chocolate. The milk may bind with the flavenoids, making them unavailable. For the same reason, you shouldn't drink milk when eating dark chocolate if you want to experience health benefits, notes a 2003 "USA Today" article."

You NEED Chocolate!

Yes I do. At least once a month I permit myself to have some. The feeding frenzy subsides after an hour or so. 

Dorothy Parker --- 6 years ago -

I'll have to find my health benefits another way. I love drinking milk when eating chocolate. Especially when it's cookies or cake. :) 

FabFive --- 6 years ago -

Costco has 51% Cacao chocolate chips for a really reasonable price. That place has the best stuff. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 6 years ago -

Fab, where the heck is the nearest Costco? 

FabFive --- 6 years ago -

Closest to KW is Tomball. When I lived in KW I made a monthly trip and it was so very worth it. 

Wicked --- 6 years ago -

51 percent is too little. That is too much sugar. You really have to get at least 72 percent. 86 is preferable. Ghirrodelli (sp) had a very good 86 percent. 

FabFive --- 6 years ago -

The reason I said chocolate chips with 51% was for Dorothy who said she doesn't like dark chocolate. You can put it in to cookies and still love them and they won't have the bitterness of the dark chocolate. I can eat super dark chocolate and love it but not everyone does.

A good fix of dark chocolate is better than sex. 

FabFive --- 6 years ago -

Also Costco's choc chips are responsibly sourced as are many of their products. 

Butterbean --- 6 years ago -

responsibly sourced

I don't understand this term. 

FireWife --- 6 years ago -

I bought a bar of dark chocolate yesterday at HEB. I will eat a piece for a pick me up .. Since coffee is no longer a desire .. ick! Chocolate and Snapple tea is this preggo's best friend :) 

FabFive --- 6 years ago -

Well it means a lot of things like no child labor, giving people fair prices for their products, and doing the right thing environmentally as well. It can mean other things too just giving basics.

^^^ Said no man, ever!!! Lmao!

Guess you've never had good sex...or you have to find a substitute because you aren't getting any.

Probably both. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 6 years ago -

86% of course, is the best- but it doesn't taste good to me- to make it healthy, it has to be low in sugar, and melted in coffee is the only way I like it- Bob, I agree- especially if you cheat, and add toffee or coconut!!! 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 6 years ago -

DTD, I have read about the cardiac benefits of dark chocolate and thats all the reason (justification) I need to indulge. 

TinktheSprite --- 6 years ago -

You NEED Chocolate!

That's my rule, my mantra, and my craving! 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 6 years ago -

Its the elixer of the Gods.

I happen to be looking at a flourless cake recipe I'll probably be making today. It calls for dark chocolate (my favorite kind since childhood), and strong brewed coffee. The only thing that I think can make it better is drizzling a raspberry coulis over it. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 6 years ago -

Tell me more about this flourless cake. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 6 years ago -

Make it coconut Warren and I'll be right over! :D 

Warren Peace --- 6 years ago -

Tell me more about this flourless cake.

It's about a pound of dark baking chocolate, but it uses eggs and butter for texture. It bakes in a water bath to optimize the texture.

It's dense, moist structure, with a very rich chocolate essence. The texture is somewhere between a slightly aerated chocolate mousse and a heavy NY style cheesecake. This ensures the mouth only has to work for a moment before it melts and coats the tastebuds. If done right, there's no excessive sweetness and there won't even be a grain of sugar interfering with the dense but creamy texture.

SighFi, you're going to have to bring the coconut. The only only coconut I have in my house at the moment is coconut oil (great in scampi). 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 6 years ago -

it's great to cook almost anything! you can get it w/o the coconut taste- 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 6 years ago -

what does it call for to sweeten? 

Melanie --- 6 years ago -

Time to eat some chocolate. :-) 

April --- 6 years ago -

Do Mounds or Almond Joy count? 

TinktheSprite --- 6 years ago -

I WANT CHOCOLATE!!!
