For weight control, portion size is critically important. It is easy to forget how many pieces you have eaten and unwittingly consume excessive calories. A 250 g pack of Cadbury Roses, with only 23 pieces, contains 1,205 calories and 57.5 g of fat.

Health

Chocolate contains flavanols that have antioxidant qualities. The Cleveland Clinic reports that flavanols have benefits to vascular health, such as helping to lower blood pressure, improve blood flow to the heart and brain and lower cholesterol. Although some of the flavanols are lost during processing, many manufacturers are endeavoring to retain flavanols in their processed chocolates.
