"Those with a vested interest say chocolate is good for you. However, with things like chocolate, coffee and wine, my philosophy is to use the best you can afford and then you cannot afford to use too much. I'd never eat main stream commercial chocolate; with it's waxes and additives it doesn't even taste good to me anymore. However, my husband loves milk chocolate snacks and these little bars pass the muster. Regardless of the size of the bar, he will consume a whole bar once it's open so this size is perfect. And, I must admit, they are delicious."
