Milk chocolate may also have added chemicals, like high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated oils, all of which do MORE than pack on the pounds, those chemicals can raise our cholesterol and blood pressure …but if you can find pure dark chocolate (I like hersheys, little dark chocolate squares, 4 is a serving), that usually doesn’t have all those added chemicals and is just pure cocoa… that is a natural source of antioxidants and can actually be healthy. Plus, dark chocolate is naturally richer, so you may find after you have 1 or 2, you won’t have the appetite to go back for more, so you will be consuming less calories.
