This should strike fear in the heart of comfort eaters everywhere: we are running out of chocolate.
Apparently, peak chocolate occurred in 2012, and since then, we have been happily gobbling up every bit of the sweet stuff we can find. And why not? Cocoa contains many antioxidants and minerals, as well as the medium chain triglycerides (MCT) that most efficiently fuel our bodies.
You’ll want to get chocolate that has 65% or greater cocoa content to enjoy the delicious benefits — that milk chocolate junk ain’t gonna cut it.
It’s probably wouldn’t hurt to start stocking up now, before it becomes unreasonable to buy regularly.
One of my favorites is more nuts than chocolate, but works deliciously in a pinch when I don’t have time for a full meal: KIND Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt.
