As a dental benefits company, we obviously care a great deal about oral health and we know candy isn’t exactly the best thing for your teeth. But who are we to deprive kids of Halloween treats?
Everything’s better with chocolate…especially today for National Chocolate Day!
Not only is chocolate delicious, it’s one of the best sweets for your teeth. Chocolate dissolves quickly in the mouth and can be eaten easily, which decreases the amount of time sugar stays in contact with teeth. And the calcium in chocolate could help protect tooth enamel.
In honor of National Chocolate Day, here are some healthy ways to have a delectable day – guaranteed to make all your chocolate dreams comes true!
- Start your day with these chocolate muffins. Yes, you can have chocolate for breakfast! Especially when they’re (secretly) filled with flax, pumpkin, prunes and chomp-worthy chocolate!
- Continue the celebration with a DIY chocolate spa mask. This chocolate TREATment will moisturize, exfoliate and cleanse your skin.
- After a nutritious dinner, it’s time to whip up a decadent dessert. This dark chocolate bark provides a unique crunch, filled with protein-rich chia seeds and nuts.

If you bundle your cable, Internet and phone services, there’s a good chance you’re going to save money. Buy in bulk at a warehouse and you’ll get more bang for your buck. In most cases, bundling is a smart choice. However, bundling dental and medical coverage doesn’t save you money. Standalone dental does. It also gives you better service and coverage.
