Dark chocolate "good for the heart"

"Only a small daily treat of dark chocolate may substantially increase the amount of antioxidant intake and beneficially affect vascular health," the report's authors said.

I love these stories when I see them, they give me an excuse to go out and get a good peice of dark chocolate! In fact as I have aged, I find my tastes tend toward the dark chocolate more and more.
In my youth, only milk/white chocolate would do, and I still have a soft spot for white chocolate, especially in the hot drink format. Now, I'm older and wiser, and when it comes time for a treat I'm inclined to either pay a premium, or accept a small portion size and take a truely delectable peice of dark chocolate over the mass marked sugar willed waxy chocolate bars.

Maybe I'm becoming a chocolate snob, but if I am going to eat something so filled with calories, I want it to be worth it. I think I might go get me some dark chocolate!
