Cereal companies are starting to hop onto a cacao-covered bandwagon, reported candy blog Candy Addict back in January. There's also a link to a USA Today article about the "chocolate is nutritious" trend. What's interesting is that neither cereal is using quality dark chocolate (that supposedly has the healthy benefits), they're using "chocolatey" bits concoted from cocoa and partially hydrogenated palm kernel oil. Which goes to show: if you're trying to eat healthy, adding chocolate cereal to your diet is probably not the right step.
