Easing the chocolate-induced guilt

So the Washington Post has an article in the Food section talking about the health benefits of cocoa due to the presence of flavanols. The interesting part of this to me is that dutch cocoa has less flavanols (and thus health benefits) due to its processing method. I've never been a big fan of dutch cocoa -- it tastes less flavorful and flatter to me. So this is just one more reason for me to ignore dutch cocoa.

Luckily for me, my favorite brand of hot chocolate (Dagoba) doesn't use dutch cocoa.
