Researchers established a while back that dark chocolate benefits health in many ways.

Now there are 3 more benefits of eating chocolate to add to the list:

  • Dark chocolate makes you smarter by increasing cerebral blood flow.
  • Chocolate eaters are less likely to die during a heart attack.
  • Chocolate fights cavities.

This list of the top 10 everyday superfoods should be expanded to include dark chocolate.

Unfortunately, other chocolates — such as milk chocolate and white chocolate — don’t offer the same health benefits.

This 3-minute chocolate cake in a cup is one way to satisfy your chocolate craving.

Another way (that’s a bit healthier) is to grab a Hershey’s Special Dark with Almonds chocolate bar.  You’ll be getting 2 superfoods for the price of one since almonds are a superfood too!

Wait a minute, if dark chocolate benefits health and almonds do too, does that make the dark chocolate candy bar with almonds a super-duper-food?
