National Today says...

“Whether it’s used to coat other candies and nuts, melted over fruit, or shaven over a gourmet dessert, chocolate always hits the spot. Around 1 billion people from around the world eat chocolates every day. Besides its great taste, it has tons of health benefits. Although chocolates are recognized as fattening, amazingly they can also aid weight loss and help maintain weight if consumed moderately.”

I also learned from National Today that chocolate was originally a form of currency [cocoa beans] during the Mayan times, chocolate was also originally used as medicine, still to this day chocolate can help prevent you from coughing, and apparently hot cocoa was “the first treat” to ever exist in — “the first chocolate product was hot cocoa discovered by the Mayans about 3,000 years ago.”
