My Bitter Valentine: 2019 Gifts For The Broken-Hearted
Dark chocolate is good for your heart, bitter chocolate is good for your soul. It doesn't get much darker than 90 percent cacao, but if you pay close attention, underneath the bitterness, you'll find some lovely fruitiness and a soft richness. Mixed messages, a bitter end, or a flame still smoldering? You can decide what it means.
