Good News Chocovores! Benefits Arrive After Dark

"Look for dark chocolate with at least 60 percent cocoa solids,
and made with cocoa butter rather than palm or coconut oil. Read
labels and avoid hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils.
Dark chocolate is sensitive to temperature and humidity. Store
in a cool, dry place between 59-63 degrees F. Wrap well to protect
it from light and the aromas of other foods. Chocolate that absorbs
moisture may have a whitish "bloom" that comes from fat or sugar
crystals rising to the surface. It's fine to eat but won't look
appetizing. And though it may be foods for the gods, it's not for the
dogs- cats, birds, and other pets. Chocolate can be toxic to animals,
so keep chocolate and pets apart."
