According to The National Confectioners Association, here are some fun facts about the yummy treat:
· It takes 400 cocoa beans to make one pound of chocolate.
· Each cacao tree produces approximately 2,500 beans.
· Research to date supports that chocolate can be enjoyed as part of a balanced, heart-healthy diet and lifestyle.
· The average serving of milk chocolate has about the same amount of caffeine as a cup of decaf coffee.
· Studies have demonstrated that one of the major saturated fats in chocolate does not raise cholesterol like other hard fats–meaning chocolate can be enjoyed in moderation.
