Chocolate + Fruit = Perfect Marriage

If you suffer from a sweet tooth, then you probably know what I'm talking about when I say the best part of dinner is dessert. From the moment you put your dinner fork down, that little voice comes from within.... "and for a sweet treat tonight we are having"...and then the battle starts! a little battle between the angel perched on my right shoulder telling me to be healthy and satisfy your sweet tooth with some vitamin filled fresh fruit, while the little devil on my left shoulder is screaming "CHOCOLATE, CHOCOLATE, CHOCOLATE"

Well, the answer seems clear to me:
