Scientists Discover Way to Make Milk Chocolate Have Dark Chocolate Health Benefits Without the Bitter Taste

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.

1610071_mw_005_mike_altman_por.jpg

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
