Yum! Chocolate is great for you when it's the real deal. just have to be wary of all the added sugar, dairy and artificial flavorings. I'm looking forward to a little something sweet tomorrow. My favorite new treat is NewTree's chocolate noir spread with a little almond butter - it's like healthy adult nutella.
