Is medium colored chocolate still good for you, even though dark is better?

I don't like dark chocolate as much as medium or regular should I say. I love regular chocolate, and was wondering if there were any benefits associated with eating it. It's merely the first choice when I cheat.

White dark or inbetween is the one for me. I love them all.

I know darker is better. But is regular chocolate still good, even though it's not dark?

I'm no expert, but I dont think it could be thought of as "good". To create "medium" chocolate, you have to add tons of sugar and tons of heavy cream. This makes the "healthy" (if you will) aspects of dark chocolate, disapear because of all the fat and calories you have just added to the mix.

so if you are looking for a go-ahead to eat "Medium" chocolate, then go for it, because a little bit can make you feel good and make you happy. But I dont think i would say it is particulary good for you.
