The reason I have trust issues is, because once I presumed Dark chocolate will be more 'sweeter', as I redirected dark with more chocolate (my assumption- more chocolate added will result in making it darker than usual. Stupid Me, I know). But you all know how it turned out. BITTER!

But I can't put the blame on something else for my stupidity. And also, it turns out that 'this' chocolate might lack sweetness, but has benefits more than any sweet chocolate out there.

The richness of cocoa in the chocolate ensures blood flow in the brain. Hence, in increased efficiency.

So, now you do have an excuse to eat Chocolate? But keep this thing in mind. At the end of the day it is only CHOCOLATE; that means it will and has sugar and saturated fat, which can single handedly take over the pros of 'the' product. Too much of anything has never had a happy ending. So, MIND the amount.
