A Dark Chocolate Affair

Do you know dark chocolate turns women on more than a passionate kissing session?


YEAH! According to research, dark chocolates stimulates endorphin production which gives the feeling of pleasure. So now, we know why guys buy chocolates for girls on Valentine's Day and why girls love to receive them :P

Apart from just that, dark chocolates have many other health benefits compare to milk or white chocolate which taste better and sweeter. Dark chocolates are bitter but they are beneficial to health because:
  1. it helps to protect the body from aging caused by free radicals as dark chocolates contains antioxidants ( nearly 8 times the number found in strawberries)
  2. it is good for the skin
  3. it helps to lower the blood pressure for individuals with high blood pressure
  4. it helps to lower cholesterol - reducing the bad cholesterol by up to 10%
  5. it contains serotonin which acts as an anti depresent
My favourite of all dark chocolates is of course the Lindt's 85% cocoa Extra Fine Dark Chocolate.

Price: around RM12

And today I found a cheap replacement for my cravings for Lindt's ...

Price: RM4

YES! Seriously they only cost RM4 per bar and they are imported all the way from FRANCE. Seriously this is a good bargain especially with all those health benefits and not to mention they taste good too. Not bad for the price. Normally, you can't even get a bar of dark chocolate at just RM4! Even the local brands are not that cheap. I am very choosy when it comes to chocolates especially those locally produced chocolate (eg: Beryls, Vochelle, Nestle and etc). Even M&M available in Malaysia market (which are made in Thailand) is a crap compare to the ones imported from the states. Yes! I am just that choosy - they just do taste different to me - as according to my taste bud.

Anyway, I bought 2 bars of Carrefour branded dark chocolate today (before trying it) and I regretted that I did not get more :( But this 2 bars are good enough to keep me satisfied and pleasured for a week. :D
