Chocolate, We All Love It, But Why?

Excuse me while I lick the chocolate off my fingers so I can write this post.  Or is it Cacao? Or maybe Cocoa?  All I know is that it's brown and it sure taste good.  Okay, that sounded weird... let's back up...

The Science Behind Chocolate

Unless you happen to be a dog or a cat (which is a huge demographic for us) you have probably spent many a days eating, savoring and feeling the Good that comes from Chocolate.  While Chocolate is a sweet treat that taste terrific, the magic of Chocolate goes beyond taste.  

Chocolate is packed with antioxidants.  Need a refresher on why antioxidants are important?  Take a look at our Baobab Fruit and Antioxidants article.  Of course not all Chocolate is loaded with antioxidants, and how it is processed has a direct impact on the nutrients in the chocolate. We could go on and on with boring words to describe Chocolate, but why not spend 4 minutes and watch this very entertaining video on all things Chocolate from the SciShow -

Now I Feel Bad For Cats

Cats can't taste sweets?  Why isn't the suicide rate among cats higher?  Man, life without sweets...hard to find the Good in that.  Seriously, for us humans there are a lot of positives about Chocolate, but you want to go with things that have a higher Cacao level.  Many of the "chocolate candy bars" have more milk and fat than Cacao.  Look for a bar that is 60% or higher in Cacao and you will be Feeling The Good of Chocolate!
