HOW MUCH DO YOU KNOW ABOUT CHOCOLATE?
Chocolate Quiz Tests Knowledge Of America's Favorite Flavor
(Vienna, VA) -- Delicious chocolate, sweet and satisfying. It's America's favorite flavor when it comes to desserts and sweet snacks, according to a survey conducted by the Chocolate Manufacturers Association. Best of all, research conducted on many facets of this favorite food suggests one can enjoy it guilt-free as part of an active lifestyle.
"Chocolate can fit into any healthy lifestyle," explains Larry Graham, president of the Chocolate Manufacturers Association. "Myths that may have made some people feel guilty about consuming chocolate are being erased rapidly as scientists continue to study this complex and wonderful food."
Take this chocolate quiz to see where you stand on your chocolate knowledge:

Which food is more likely to cause tooth decay?
A) A slice of wheat bread B) Potato chips C) A chocolate bar

(E. None is more likely than the other to cause tooth decay. Any food containing fermentable carbohydrates such as starch or sugar can contribute to tooth decay. How often we eat these foods and how long they stay in contact with the teeth determines the likelihood of their causing cavities. Research shows that the naturally occurring cocoa butter in chocolate actually helps chocolate clear the teeth more rapidly than many other foods.)

False. (Studies conducted at the University of Pennsylvania tested 63 women who had chronic headaches and found chocolate was not a significant cause of migraines. Hormones appear to play a significant role.)
