Supplement with chocolate or just supplement....then eat chocolate?

I appreciate all kinds of chocolate and the chocolate makers who craft it. Which is why I tend to speak positively about most chocolates that I try. I feel like whoever made the chocolate had a passion for chocolate and the ingredients they put in it, such as: healthy ingredients, spices, gourmet foods, interesting flavours, organic ingredients. So if I do not like the chocolate, I simply do not write about it. 

But after purchasing a 'maca' infused chocolate bar yesterday, and tasting it, I started to wonder to myself, "do we really need chocolate with dietary supplements in it?  Or should we just eat great-tasting chocolate and then take a supplement - separately of our sweet treat?"  I get that people want to feel like they are doing something healthy for their bodies while eating a chocolate treat, but if the healthy ingredient negatively changes the taste and texture of the chocolate, what is the point?  Why not just take a pill with the health supplement in it? Then we can truly appreciate and enjoy fine chocolate on its own. Wouldn't that be the better option?

I will leave the answer up to you, the chocolate eater.  And I will tell you that although I initially did not like the flavour of the Vega Maca Chocolate bar that I purchased yesterday, it grew on me by the time I ate the second piece.  And today, I like it more than I did yesterday. And oddly, I feel like I have done something good for my body by eating it.  Funny how that happens.

Maca is a root that is very high in protein and has over 22 amino acids and minerals and has 'hormone-normalizing' effects. Apparently, clinical research also demonstrates it to be a powerful fertility and libido enhancer for both men and women.
