Chocolates are high in cholesterol.

Fact

The American Heart Association recommends that daily cholesterol intake not exceed 300 mg. Stearic acid, the main saturated fat found in milk chocolate, is unique. Research has shown that it doesn't raise cholesterol levels the same way that other types of saturated fats do. In fact, eating a 1.4 ounce chocolate bar instead of a carbohydrate-rich snack has been shown to increase HDL (good) cholesterol levels.
