Chew on This


(PHYSICAL) Did you know that chocolate is made from the seeds of Theobroma Cacao tree? Unlike milk chocolate, which has a high content of milk fat solids, dark chocolate has a higher percentage of cacao and contains less sugar. Health benefits are seen when consuming dark chocolate containing 70% cacao in small amounts, 1 oz per day. Sorry white chocolate fans, this sweet isn’t even really chocolate.
