Next, it helps in creating the mood for romance. Third, it can help you lose some weight. Fourth, it protects you from strokes. Fifth, it will inspire you to be active. Sixth, it can limit your sugar and fat intake. Lastly, it will satisfy your cravings. So go ahead and satisfy your taste buds without having some feelings of guilt. After all, you only deserve the best and the sweetest that life has to offer.
