Blog Prompt: Today is Milk Chocolate Day. (Donâ??t get this mixed up with Chocolate milk day.) Do you like milk chocolate or dark chocolate and why?
I LOVE CHOCOLATE!!!Â And I much prefer dark over milk any day.Â As a matter of fact, I had my dark chocolate Dove candy bar the other day.Â Darn displays at the grocery store will get me every time!!
I have a few thoughts about chocolate I would like to share with you.
ConsÂ – Fattening, too much sugar, not much on nutritional value as a candy bar and melts in your hand, toxic to animals, very addictive.
Pros – Cocoa or dark chocolate benefits the circulatory system, Other beneficial effects suggested include anticancer, brain stimulator, cough preventive and anti diarrhea effects, may stimulate the hypothalamus, inducing pleasurable sensations as well as affecting the levels of serotonin, an aphrodisiac, tastes great!
So, the conclusion I have come up with is how can anyone not find anything good about chocolate.Â And by the way, I wouldn’t give my good chocolate to my dog anyway!!Â I would choose dark chocolate over milk chocolate any day and it seems there are more benefits from the darker version.Â And the idea that it might help my circulatory system, stimulate my brain a bit and causes me not to have diarrhea and the best part, could help me enjoy a nice night with my hubby!!
I conclude there is not a darn thing wrong with CHOCOLATE and I must have it!!!
Grab a chocolate bar and enjoy your day,
