Some Sweet Findings About Dark Chocolate

Since Aztec times, chocolate has been consumed by millions of people. With its craveable, comforting & unique taste, there’s no wonder it’s been around for so long! Here at Sweet Loren’s, we love dark chocolate. That’s why each bite of our Chocolate Chunk cookies are jam-packed with chocolate chunks — not chips. Of course, it’s possible to have too much of a good thing, but not to worry — with our portion controlled packages you’ll be able to keep it in check.

Lowers Blood Pressure

Flavanols and magnesium in dark chocolate improve vascular function and can help lower blood pressure.

Good for Overall Cholesterol Profile

A study by the Southern Medical Journal showed cocoa polyphenols may be involved in cholesterol control by improving lipid profiles and decreasing platelet reactivity.

Improved Heart Health

Flavanols can have a very positive effect on heart healthy by improving blood flow to the heart as well as to the brain.

Mood-Boosting Properties

Dark chocolate contains the compound theobromine that affects our central nervous system. Similar to caffeine, it can make us relax and feel content. Dark chocolate may also interact with neurotransmitters, which can increase serotonin, our feel-good endorphins.

We source a decadent European dark chocolate in our Gluten Free Chocolate Chunk, Chocolate Chunk & Peanut Butter Chocolate cookie dough recipes. We’d like to think chocolate is good for the soul too! You can check out where to buy our cookie dough using our store locator. Happy baking!
