Each year at Valentine's Day Americans purchase as many as 58 million pounds of chocolates. In 2008, the premium chocolate market was a $1.6 billion business. About $720 million came from small regional and local chocolatiers, many of who make their candy by hand.
What's more, to-die-for chocolate may actually help you live longer. It's rich in flavonoids-which may help lower blood pressure-and packed with other antioxidants. Eating a little bit every day could be beneficial to your health.
So what is your favorite chocolate. My favorite chocolatiers are: Jacques Torres, and Christopher Elbow.
Go ahead, eat some chocolate, it will make you feel better.
