DARK CHOCOLATE that is!!!

We've already told you about how gifting dark chocolate this Valentine's Day is a fab idea — now we've got MORE proof that it's a healthy and delicious alternative!!

It's true! Today could be the healthiest Valentine's Day on record!

It all boils down to public awareness about the health benefits of dark chocolate — like having a higher level of cocoa flavonoids, which recent scientific studies have found combat bad cholesterol and lower blood pressure.

Milk chocolate still reigns, though, with 29 percent of Americans over age 45 preferring dark chocolate and but only 15 percent of Americans age 18-44 going less sweet. Still, more and more people are choosing dark chocolate than they used to!

Don't get the wrong idea, though — you still need to practice moderation! It's just that you get the extra flavonoid benefit in addition!

Happy Valentine's Day, guys! We hope you get your fill of dark chocolate AND sexy time! LOLz!
