Dark Chocolate Breakdown – How to Buy Healthy Bars

I almost never post about sweet indulgences but I do LOVE a good bit of dark chocolate now and then.

Like most people, I thought the higher the percentage of cacao, the healthier the bar.

In trying to respond to an Amazon question, this morning about Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mega Chunks , I discovered that I was totally, completely wrong!

Since I take my responsibility to Amazon pretty seriously…and I take chocolate even more seriously, I decided I better get the skinny on what 55%, 65%, 75% and 80% really means in the world of all things chocolate!

So here, to set us all straight just in time for all that holiday chocolate we are buying, baking, eating and enjoying, is a post from the Bright River Chocolate company, a chocolate company that makes the percentages make sense!
They even have a pie chart!

Enjoy the info then enjoy some healthy chocolate this holiday season.
Happy Holidays!
