We already know that dark chocolate is good for you. Now, thanks to the “trained panelists” (what are they, monkeys?) at Consumer Reports, we have a list of their picks of the best dark chocolate bars on the market. Their #1 pick is a bit surprising: Cacao Reserve by Hershey’s Extra Dark. Really? Hershey’s?
The top five:
Cacao Reserve by Hershey’s Extra Dark
Lindt Excellence Extra Fine Dark
Chocolove Organic Dark
Valrhona Le Noir Amer Dark Bittersweet
Scharffen Berger Semisweet Pure Dark
The worst of the bars they tested is Newman’s Own Organics Sweet Dark, which you eat at your own peril. Click here to see the full list.
