Stefan A. F. Bon, Ph.D., reports that chocoate infused with fruit juice is more healthful and just as tasty/

If you are a chocolate lover though have concerns over the fat content, here's some good news. A scientist has created a new chocolate with half the fat.

Now it's established that chocolate may very well be a health treat - eaten in moderation, you could soon be eating the same wonderful chocolate though with much less fat, according to a recently released study.

That's if manufacturers embrace a new technology and use “fruit-juice-infused chocolate.” At a presentation of the 245th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society, Stefan A. F. Bon, Ph.D., who led the research, said that the technology enables chocolate manufactures tp add fruit juice, vitamin C water or diet cola and eliminate up to to 50 percent of the fat.

According to Dr. Bon (Bon?) the juice is in the form of micro-bubbles that help chocolate retain its good, smooth, chocolate delciousness in the “mouth-feel” -- he certainly knows how to describe the ideal chocolate eating experience. Better yet, you know the white stuff that seems to grow on old cholatee? It's called “sugar bloom” and this process prevents it too.

Seems like Dr. Bon and his team have discovered two more great reasons to keep eating chocolate.

Chocolate is now forbidden in my household. Apparently it can bring on my missus has heard! I started my missus nibbling on a large block of dark chocolate one night.She went beserk with desire and went round the block. By the time she got back i was asleep...she just licked her fingers and did her block again...gained nothing?

Is Dr. Bon really his name? I'm assuming he invented personal favorite. When my kids were upset, we'd pull out those frozen treats and drown our sorrows. Okay...just so you know, we're not 300-pound gals sitting on the sofa eating bonbons all day. We realized the correlation between chocolates and tipping the scale and put the skids on those tasty treats (now we're talking sorrow) and quickly moved onto carrot sticks. And if you believe that...I've got a blog to sell you.
