Chocolate cake

Posted Thursday, September 13, 2012, at 10:49 PM

Today I was having lunch with friends. Chocolate cake was offered, and I said I didn't need any.

I was quickly and jovially informed that the words "need" and "chocolate cake" do not belong in the same sentence.

It's true you know. And the latest news is CHOCOLATE IS GOOD FOR YOU!

According to a Harvard study,chocolate could help increase your life expectancy by two years!

Allchocolate.com says dark chocolate is -- here comes the pun. Sorry, can't help it -- chock full of antioxidants, might be good for your heart,has a low glycemic index and just makes you feel good. (Those looking for romance have known this for years, I suspect. Pretty sure that's why chocolates are deemed such a great Valentine's Day gift.)

Some folks also believe it has cancer-fighting properties and might actually even help you think better.

If that's not enough reason to eat chocolate, here's another, from my friends, and my favorite reason to eat is as well. Because you want to.

Next time there's chocolate cake, you betcha I'll have a piece. Maybe two. :)
