Dark chocolate can be a source of antioxidants in the diet, but many consumers dislike the bitter flavor. The taste of milk chocolate is more appealing to a greater number of consumers, but it doesn’t have the same antioxidants properties as dark chocolate. In a recent Journal of Food Science study, researchers found a way to use peanut skin extracts to make milk chocolate that has even more nutritional benefits of dark chocolate without affecting the taste.

Halloween is fraught with the perils of cavity-inducing treats. Lip-smacking sour gummies, ooey gooey caramel and fruit chews can get to the best of us, but these sugar-laden delights wreak havoc on our oral health. Yet there is a glimmer of semi-good news for the cavity conscious: dark chocolate.

Witches, Transformers, princesses, and goblins stalking neighborhoods at night for candy wasn’t always what Halloween was about. Hundreds of years ago, Halloween was about celebrating European harvest festival traditions. And as Catholicism began spreading globally, Halloween became All-Hallows-Eve – the night before the celebration of All Saints Day, which celebrated Catholic saints. Dr. Michael J. Altman, an assistant professor in the department of religious studies who specializes in American religious cultures, has researched the history and evolution of Halloween throughout the centuries
