Dark chocolate is one of those foods that seems almost too good to be true. It is extraordinarily nutrient-dense, boasts numerous health benefits, and tastes delicious. The greater percentage of cacao mixed with the fact that it contains less sugar and little (or no) dairy is what makes dark chocolate such a rare healthy treat.

To put it into perspective, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s nutrient database, a standard bar of milk chocolate contains about 600 calories and 44 grams of sugar. Dark chocolate, on the other hand, contains a similar number of calories, but half the amount of sugar.
