Chocolate

How much chocolate should I eat if any?

I like Lindt Chocolate. I though it would be instructive to compare their three types of plain chocolate as follows: (source http://www.fatsecret.co.uk/calories-nutrition/lindt/70-dark-chocolate/1-square)

Chocolate Calories Sugar Saturated Fat
Lindt (1 square)      
70% 52 2.8g 2.4g
85% 53 1.4g 2.8g
90% 58 0.7g 3.0g

 

Assuming you have one square with a cup of coffee. It is interesting to note that as the intensity of the chocolate increases, so do the calories and the saturated fat. The sugar content halves each time. If viewed from a sugar viewpoint then the 90% bar is what should be consumed, if I am going to eat one.
