What it is -- As buzz about the taste and health benefits of specialty chocolate grows, Ghirardelli introduces a line of dark bars to cater to the demand. What we like about it --Of the four flavors -- Twilight Delight, Toffee Interlude, Espresso Escape and Citrus Sunset -- Twilight Delight contains the highest cacao content (72 percent).

My women's investment club has morphed into a book club. After a decade of poring over stock reports and dutifully keeping abreast of business news, we're calling it quits. Although we made a few blockbuster purchases along the way, when the final tally was in, we barely broke even. If our investing skills were not stellar, our social skills were. The highlight of our meetings was always the time we spent chatting while nibbling on homemade treats. Because most of our group didn't want to give up our convivial get-togethers, we decided to change our focus to books.

Remember when grandpa used to grumble about how a chocolate bar only cost him a few pennies in the good ol' days? Well, hide the latest Godiva Chocolatier catalog, because the poor old guy just might keel over. Chocolate has reached a new extreme of decadence, as illustrated by the 24-Karat Tower with Signature Ribbon, a 7-pound, 4.95-ounce mountain of truffles, chocolates and other confections, priced at an anything-but-modest $250. Have a taste for a richer flavor? How about the new 12-Month Godiva Gift Ensemble, for $350?

Q. I have strong chocolate cravings right before my periods. Every time I go to the health food store, I have to fight the urge to buy a chocolate bar (which the store keeps at the checkout aisle). I have always assumed that chocolate is high in fat, high in sugar and bad for my complexion. But I recently heard on the radio that chocolate is a health food and that it is actually good for my heart. Have I been depriving myself needlessly? A. Perhaps. Chocolate is high in sugar and fat, and eating too much could contribute to problems with weight control but not your complexion.

NEW YORK -- On a recent sunny day, Gail Williams breezed into an Upper East Side candy store with her daughter and grandchildren in tow. A 10-foot high statue of a chocolate bunny greeted them. A whimsical lollipop tree grew out of one corner. Shelves were filled with both vintage Pez dispensers and candy bars with labels like "PMS chocolate." And stools decorated in candy cane stripes, tabletops made of M&M mosaics and vases of chocolate roses filled the two-story space. Predictably, Williams' grandchildren raced through the store, playing with spin pops and checking out gummy bears in rare flavors like Poppin Pineapple.
