Dark chocolate is pure luxury. It is decadent, and yet we have discovered it is actually good for us. I crave chocolate. I can decide that I am not going to eat candy of any kind, but after a few months, I am literally craving chocolate.
Not sure why chocolate is so important. When I was a kid in the 50s, candy was cheaper than it is now, but we didn't have a lot of money, so every piece we got was precious. Chocolate was always our favorite. Today we can buy as much as we want, in spite of the cost. But now, we have to be careful because of the weight issue. Maybe chocolate is a luxury because at no time in my life have I been able to totally satisfy my craving for that dark, luscious piece of heaven.
