My favourite chocolate is Marks & Spencer Swiss Chocolate – specifically Extra Fine Milk. However, I understand that Dark Chocolate has more health benefits than Milk. So when I went to M&S an hour ago I bought one of each: 125g each of Milk and Dark (as you do).
Seems to me that the main differences are in the fat, sugar and fibre contents:
- Dark chocolate has 24% more fat than Milk
- Milk chocolate has 86% more sugar than Dark
- Dark chocolate has 367% more fibre than Milk – yeah, nearly four times as much!
So – do I go for the fat, fibrous bar that will make me poo better or the sugary bar that makes my mood fluctuate like crazy?
For now it’s going to be one light, one dark, one light, one dark … let’s see how I go on with that.
