What is real chocolate? In it's purest edible form, REAL chocolate is dark chocolate with nothing added to it. The further away you get from that, the closer you get to what I would consider to be fake chocolate. Good dark chocolate should have an ingredient list about six or seven words long (dark chocolate, natural sweetener, natural flavor like ginger or something) or less.
I was a big chocolate lover. After going vegan I used to have vegan chocolate, but after deciding to cut out all processed foods from my diet I haven't had chocolate in four months.
When I go to the store I find myself looking over the chocolate bars to see if I can eat any of them, but even if I find one I generally pass it up because a) it's always EXPENSIVE and b) I can't justify the calories.
I've forgotten what chocolate tastes like now and although I sometimes want to have it every now and then I substitute it with my other love - GRAPES.
As an occasional treat, I do go out and look for non-dairy or specifically vegan chocolate bars.
But I don't want to eat it regularly anymore for the reasons stated here -- it's expensive, tons of calories, processed, can be hard to find, etc... Plus, I don't want to get into the habit of it or then if I don't have it, think I'm denying myself.
