"Chocolate is good for you" Max Brenner writes in his latest catalogue of chocolates for 2011 which can be picked-up instore.

A small amount of dark chocolate with a minimum of 70% cocoa lowers the risk of a heart attack. However, too much chocolate can lead to high blood pressure.
Chocolate was first derived from the cocoa bean which was discovered in the Amazon rainforest around 4000 B.C. But it was not until 1528 when the Spanish explorer Hernando Cortes returned to Spain from Mexico with the cocoa beans, where it was then mixed with sugar and spices to make it into the worldwide delicacy it is today.

Luckily Max Brenner sells dark chocolate and supermarkets also stock Lindt dark chocolate at more affordable prices.

There are seven Max Brenner stores throughout Melbourne so finding a cosy place to sip a hot mug of chocolate or latte is easy.
There are three main varieties of chocolate to choose from: white, dark, or milky.

If you are hungry and in dire need of something sweet, then there are Belgium waffles, ice creams, and choctails on the menu.

Max Brenner's is a small café where the look of new world charm escapes into the wooden seats, tables, and floorboards as the room quickly fills with people.

A good way to tell the quality of chocolate is if you look on the back of the packet to see if the first ingredient is cocoa. If it is sugar then the chocolate is a candy bar and most of the nutrients are not in the chocolate.

More quality dark chocolate at affordable prices are needed throughout Melbourne.
