The Average Chocolate Bar Contains How Many Insect Parts?

This news may seriously cut down your chocolate consumption for the next few days.

We’ve heard before how the FDA allows companies to sell food containing trace pieces of insects.  But we never knew how badly the insects had invaded chocolate.

According to ABC News, the average chocolate bar contains eight insect pieces! (Ewwww!) And it gets worse:   They say that people who are allergic to chocolate generally aren’t reacting to the cocoa, they’re reacting to then ground-up cockroach and other insects that have invaded their chocolate. (Double, triple, and quadruple Ewww!)

The problem is there’s really nothing you can do about it.  Dr. Morton Teich is an allergist who consults with the FDA, he says, “to avoid [insects in your food], you probably would have to stop eating completely.”
