In our Dark Chocolate Experience Blog, we've gone through many different topics regarding chocolate. From an essential glossary of definitions, dark chocolate health benefits to common myths about chocolate, and even experiences visiting factories and farms that produce artisan chocolate and cacao beans.
Today we want to describe, again, how dark chocolate's benefits go beyond its flavor. It improves our health, allowing us to live life to the fullest while benefiting others.
Do you know those late-night talks with your partner when everyone is sleeping? Or going to the beach and build sandcastles with the kids? Or the exact moment when you listen to a song you love? Or when you enjoy a bite of chocolate? Those moments are the ones that keep us moving, everything we've lived with the people we love, and the memories we save as a treasure. That is "The Goodness of Life," and in several moments: dark chocolate is the mean, the driver of good memories.
Get the family together after dinner for a dark chocolate dessert, try some new flavors with the kids or stop work for a minute to enjoy a piece of chocolate.
And you know what's best? Dark Chocolate Benefits has much more to give.
Bean-to-bar chocolate preserves the purest properties of cacao with no added ingredients besides organic cane sugar for sweetness. When you eat it, you get high amounts of antioxidants and minerals that prevent aging. Eating dark chocolate means you'll be healthy, young, and have better skin for a longer time.
Another huge dark chocolate benefit is that cacao has a very high concentration of phenylethylamine. This substance is known to increase serotonin and endorphins levels, the hormones that go crazy when you exercise, when you're happy or in love. So, it will boost your energy and mood.
Additionally, when you choose to buy craft chocolate, you're supporting families, whole farmer's communities, and their economies. This support goes all over the world in countries like Ecuador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Ghana, Papua New Guinea, Madagascar, Vietnam. Most of these families have cacao beans production as their primary if not only income. Unlike huge companies, small-batch chocolate producers buy raw material directly from farmers, usually paying a premium and fair price for the quality they get. In the end, they are fairly supporting them.
And Club Chokolate exists to support them all! By offering more than ten brands in just one place (and always expanding our catalog), we can help them sell their final product. So, we can keep this industry moving forward. Meanwhile, we also support other parties involved, like Angela, completing a "circle of goodness."
Craft dark chocolate benefits everyone. We believe so because it impacts the farmer that's producing cacao beans, the factory that makes chocolate bars, and even the people that eat it just because it's delicious.
Chocolate gives us health to enjoy the goodness of life, and that's why we aspire everyone to know about this movement and be part of it.
Join us while we indulge ourselves and do good to the world.

When we founded Club ChoKolate in 2017, we began on a mission to be customer-focused, and share anything related to well-made chocolate sustainably. This post is about the latter, how dark chocolate benefits the lives of others by giving back to people that will keep this "cacao-chocolate" field moving forward.
