In what surely felt like the best medical publication of forever, two separate studies brought us the news we all (most of us?) wanted to hear.  

One report from the University of Cologne (Germany) appears in The Journal of the American Medical Association.

The study found that only dark chocolate (not white or milk chocolate) indicated lowered blood pressure.

Does this mean to come buy out our dark chocolate supply + gorge yourself on chocolates?! We're definitely not recommending that for your healthy 2018, but we can tell you that our dark chocolate selection is purposefully well stocked. 

Allow us to introduce you to a few of our favorite chocolates!

  • Free2b Foods Company - Sun Cups (with dark chocolate and sunflower seed butter inside ‘em!). Do you know why these didn’t get featured in the photo? We ran out! (But they are so good and so popular that we had to mention them here, and don’t worry, they’ll be replenished Friday!)
  • Chocolove chocolates - Ginger in Dark Chocolate,  Almonds & Sea Salt in Dark Chocolate, Cherries & Almonds in Dark Chocolate, Orange Peel in Dark Chocolate
  • Our island’s very own Not Your Sugar Mama chocolates are always guilt-free and so very delicious - Lavender Sea Salt, Rose Maca, Salted Caramel, and Coconut Crunch. We *LOVE* the NYSM mix for so many reasons!
  • TCHO Chocolate’s extra rich dark chocolate. OMG. Super rich and ethically sourced.

That’s it for now! Wishing you a delicious day out there! :-)
