Union Square in New York City has a great outdoor market where I found natural, handmade Brooklyn chocolates made by a company called Nunu. It is based in very popular Brooklyn, New York ,where there is aÂ resurgence of everything good and natural. When we found this stand selling Nunu Chocolate, I decided to try the chocolate covered coffee beans. They were espresso beans from the Columbian Andes and coated with a 53% dark chocolate. The beans were crunchy and were covered with a smooth chocolate. The flavor was heavenly, delicious and addictive!
Chocolate is made from plants and contains many of the health benefits of dark vegetables. These benefits are fromÂ flavonoids, which act asÂ antioxidants. Antioxidants protect the body from aging caused byÂ free radicals, which can cause damage that leads to heart disease. Flavonoids also help relaxÂ blood pressure. Who knew something so delicious could be good for you too?
