Cacao grows on a tree just like an apple grows on a tree. That says real food to me.
While I think it is a great idea to eat chocolate daily, I do believe in eating only fine chocolate in small amounts. I usually have only one or two small squares of chocolate each day, and it takes me a very long time to finish a bar.
Someday I'll talk about how to store fine chocolate bars so that you can enjoy them one bite at a time.
Do you have a favorite region for chocolate? I'd love to hear about it.
Enjoy the day, eat fine chocolate!
