Have you ever woken up craving a chocolate bar? Can taste that sweet cocoa treat on the tip of you tongue as memories of creamy candies float in your sleep coated brain. Nuts, caramel, raspberries, fill some, while others tease with light, dark, milk chocolate squares. Almond Joy, now doesn't that sound good. When you think about it, there are health benefits. You have almonds, which are really good for you, coconut is too, and the anti-oxidants in the chocolate are a benefit. The sugar, not so much. But hey, if we weren't supposed to eat the white gold, (which it was considered during the depression) then why is it produced for consumption? We all know the affects sugar has on the body, but if a person eats too much of anything it'll have an adverse effect on the body, and it's system. I'm not here to preach, this is what came out when I woke up craving a chocolate bar. To each their own, is one of my mantras! Have an over-easy day, yolks!
