Is there a season for eating chocolate? I personally don’t think so. Chocolate for me is the ultimate comfort food, a sure-fire stand-by in times of stress and a mood enhancer. If you eat lots, of course, its not good for you, but if you eat a few pieces of fine dark chocolate there are many health benefits. When I suggest dark chocolate this would be with a cocoa percentage of around seventy per cent or more – proper ‘chocolate’ not confectionary which I am afraid most of the chocolate bars on the supermarket shelves really are! ‘Good chocolate’ should have a beautiful shine, and a great snap at room temperature.
