So what about you guys?
Chocolate contains lots of tryptophan (an essential amino acid) and our body uses it to make serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter that makes you feel good.
It definitely does make me feel good..when I'm having a really bad day that bar of chocolate or mug of hot chocolate gives me temporary relief.
I hear dark chocolate is an acquired taste... I find it bitter .-.
