Let’s get right to it: is chocolate good for you?
But also no.
An informal Google search turns up an array of answers. What's consistent is that the cocoa in chocolate is good for you. The added sugar and fat are not.
But you most likely already knew that much.
In addition to nutrition, chocolate is also studied for its psychological effects. The Mr. B’s team doesn’t claim expertise on the nutrition side of things, but we do get excited that there’s real science to back the notion that chocolate does, in fact, brighten our customers’ days.
In basic terms, here’s how it works: you consume the cocoa in a velvety Mr. B’s confection, which in turn, releases blues-busting endorphins and soothing serotonin into your body. Those two hormones lead to an overall feeling of well-being.
But don’t take our word for it. The real proof is in the testimonials sprinkled throughout our website. Customers purchase a gift and are amazed by how much it cheered up their lonely mother or the neighbor recovering from surgery or the teacher stressing over distance learning.
We love those stories and could listen to them all day.
But we’d better get back to work handcrafting the premium chocolates that will brighten the days of even more folks.
For those who are more interested in the nutrition of chocolate, Mr. B’s confections are all gluten-free. In general, Mr. B’s has fewer calories and less sugar than mass market chocolate, and depending on specific restrictions, our dark chocolate can meet the requirements of vegan, dairy-free, and keto diets.
