Dark Chocolate Blogging: (Minuscule Quantities of ) Dark Chocolate Good For Your Health

I don't need studies like this to give me another reason to consume chocolate. We get news of a recent study published in JAMA indicating positive results in individuals consuming a minuscule amount, 30 calories worth, of dark chocolate. Couple caveats: this was a very small sample size (44 individuals) which renders results, in my opinion, to be a bit dicey, and the positive result was a fairly small reduction in high blood pressure. Still, I'll take it as good news overall. My major issue: I just find it a bit difficult to consume such a tiny amount. How does one do that?
