    They say that you can’t have your cake and eat it too. Fine. But, does that apply to your chocolate bars? Nope — looks like the dark choc really is a win-win. Well, provided you consume in moderation and choose your bar wisely. The good news: Dark chocolate is made with cocoa, which has been linked to improving heart health.

(Full disclosure: That research was partly funded by Mars, Incorporated.)

In the spirit of today — National Chocolate Day — we taste-tested a bunch of "healthy" contenders to find our favorites. Ahead are the 10 that made the cut — and the random thoughts our staff had about each one.
