Really! That's interesting but I bet it would taste different? Ah, too good to be true; it's dairy-free; I want the dairy (milk chocolate ;-) just not the lactose. But, doesn't really matter; I can eat it fine, just have to remember to chew a lactaid tablet before.

Gotta love Google! You can find lactose-free chocolate!

I love milk chocolate but it has lots of lactose in it and I'm lactose-sensitive (caramel has even more, who knew? I got really sick eating a caramel-filled, chocolate Easter bunny a couple years back). The chocolate pieces I have are so small I forget that and probably cause myself problems without realizing it when I eat too much.

Well, Deni, that is certainly food for thought. :)

From Dr. Weil's newsletter:

"Actress Katherine Hepburn credited her famously slim build to "a lifetime of chocolate," and now a new investigation from California suggests that eating chocolate is 'calorie neutral' and doesn't cause weight gain. Researchers from the University of California, San Diego set out to test the hypothesis that eating small amounts of chocolate on a regular basis wouldn't contribute to weight gain. They analyzed information from 1,000 overweight but not obese men and women and found that those who ate chocolate most often tended to consume more calories overall, including saturated fat, but weighed five to seven pounds less than people who didn't eat any chocolate. This held true regardless of age, gender or amount of exercise reported by the chocolate-eaters. The difference seemed to hinge on how often the participants ate chocolate, not how much they ate. The study was published online on March 26, 2012 by the Archives of Internal Medicine."

Of course, this does not mean you can go off the deep end. But, in my opinion, life is better with chocolate!
