Chocolate is a Vegetable: chocolate is derived from cocoa beans. Bean = vegetable. Sugar is derived from either sugar cane or sugar beets.

So candy bars are a health food.

We already know that increased consumption of fruits and vegetables results in an increase of antioxidants in our blood. We believe chocolate consumption may have the same effect.

Chocolate just stands out [for antioxidant content]. It’s much higher than anything else. – Joe Vinson, Ph.D., University of Scranton

The old man responded, “That’s ok. Since I lost my teeth all I can do is lick the chocolate off the M&Ms.”

An elderly man lay dying in his bed.
