We have often heard people equating their chocolate love to their happiness or even a healthy diet.

Chocolates are one of the most popular sweets in the world. As your favorite treat or an everyday snack, there’s nothing quite like indulging in a chocolate of your choice. No matter who you are, a kid, an adult or an oldie, a man or  woman, almost everyone craves for a little piece of chocolate.

Dark, milk or white chocolates – everyone has their own favorite flavor they crave for. Whether you prefer a slab of plain chocolate, or you’re an aficionado who refuses anything below 80 percent, or a pure milk chocolate bar lover or someone who indulges in a bit of less melting and more crunch, it’s safe to say that a lot of us would class ourselves as chocoholics.

In fact, sending chocolate care packages to your female friends when they are suffering from a terrible period cramps can do wonders. Dark chocolates are scientifically proven to be a great therapy to relieve you from period cramps and annoying mood swings. They consist of heavier amounts of the healthy cocoa bean (more than 65%) which is high in magnesium, potassium, and iron that help relax your muscles and uplift your mood without you having to consume any calories.
