Chocolate and candy are some of the most popular treats in the world. Cocoa beans were discovered in Central America and quickly became a luxury commodity valued at the same level as the currency at the time. Chocolate was originally made pure and bitter, with little or no processing. Gradually, however, other types were added, such as milk chocolate or dark chocolate, and a variety of fruit flavors.
Changes and innovations gradually resulted in the development of new types of chocolate that did not necessarily contain cocoa. Among these chocolates are various types of candy chocolates and some Iranian chocolates, some of which are described below.

Chocolate's health benefits
There are numerous advantages to eating chocolate that you may not be aware of. Chocolate is good for your heart and keeps your blood vessels flexible. Consuming chocolate has also been shown to improve memory, mood, math performance, prevent sunburn, lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, relieve cough, relieve vision, and reduce cancer risk. Consuming high-purity dark chocolate can help slow down the aging process.
Of course, as with all foods, excessive chocolate consumption is harmful. One disadvantage of chocolate overconsumption is that it raises blood cholesterol and its caffeine content weakens the body.
Which kinds of chocolate are more beneficial?
Milk chocolate loses many of the properties of chocolate due to its long processing time and is not well absorbed in the intestine, so it lacks many of the benefits of chocolate.
However, as dark chocolate is less processed, its properties are better preserved. The bitterest chocolates are the most beneficial and have fewer side effects for people who are lactose intolerant.
identifying high-quality chocolate
If the chocolate bars are fresh and of good quality, they should crack after being removed from the refrigerator and when broken; otherwise, it can be said that they are not fresh. In addition, the presence of small jags at the breaking point of chocolate is an indication of its high quality.
The darker the chocolate color, the higher its cocoa content and bitterness level.
Low-quality chocolates lack the authentic chocolate aroma. One way to determine the quality of chocolate is to smell it.
When high-quality chocolate is placed on the tongue, it gradually melts, and its good and pleasant taste fills the mouth. Poor-quality chocolates lack this feature.
High-quality chocolate should have a shiny, smooth, and stain-free surface. Otherwise, it is said to lack the necessary quality, freshness, and originality.
