Re:Some questions

So the lay public wants to know (or maybe they don't) - what kind of
chocolate is recommended and/or was used? The photo of the bars I see in
the publicly available portions of this article show bars that look like a
Kit Kat bar! Not the same as an 88% extreme dark chocolate bar with
relatively low levels of additives. Please clarify and make public in the
abstract or other portions that are available to us lay folks!
