Researchers Keep Finding Evidence That A Little Chocolate Every Day Can Provide Big Health Benefits

Researchers Keep Finding Evidence That A Little Chocolate Every Day Can Provide Big Health Benefits:

Cacao, the source of chocolate, contains antibacterial agents that fight tooth decay. Of course, this is counteracted by the high sugar content of milk chocolate. * The smell of chocolate may increase theta brain waves, resulting in relaxation. * Chocolate contains phenyl ethylamine, a mild mood elevator.

So eat a little Shocolaate everyday :)

We are individuals who are truly passionate about the art of chocolate making

Shocolaate(Show-ko-latt) specializes in freshly made truffles and chocolate treats. We use the highest quality CACAO BARRY chocolate from Belgium to ensure a smooth texture and sensational taste, producing delectable elegant chocolates for any occasion.  CACAO BARRY is renowned for its vision of the chocolate-maker’s craft as an art form leading to the production and sale of the finest-grade chocolate in the world.
Handmade, fresh chocolates – that’s what we do!We import the finest Belgian chocolate and melt it down into a smooth consistency and add some cream and alcohol as per your request to make our ganache (truffle filling). Once this is set, we hand-roll the truffles, and dip them into even more chocolate, creating a lovely shell around the ganache.  Some truffles are then covered in chocolate shavings, cocoa or nuts and decorated with pearls and other lovely adornments.
