Healthy chocolate?

Recently a ton of information has been in the press about the health benefits of chocolate, particularly dark chocolate which contains a high amount of flavanols. Flavanols are antioxidants which have shown to help thin blood and lower blood pressure. Now, Mars Inc. is planning to distribute CocoaVia, a chocolate candy bar health food product. Do we really need to trick ourselves into eating a candy bar? My advice, just eat your Snickers and enjoy it.
