Is chocolate good for you?

As I’ve written before, I don’t buy into the “chocolate is good for you because it has flavonoids/antioxidants” hype. I eat chocolate because it tastes good and makes me happy, and I don’t try to delude myself into thinking that it’s healthy.

Now I have some substance to back me up with this TimesOnline article that shares my views – to get any benefit from chocolate’s antioxidants, you would need to eat so much of it that you’d be getting negative effects from the calories and fat.
