Chocolate and Hormones

Whether Dark, White, mixed with milk, Bittersweet or Unsweetened, chocolate has the same happy pill effect on us, it's been long known that a box of chocolate cures broken hearts and put a smile on everyone's face, some scientists say Eating chocolate makes you happy because it contains phenylephylamine, the same hormone the brain triggers when you fall in love, others may add that's it benefits your heart, lower your blood pressure and improve your memory.

Despite all the studies that have given an insight into the connection between chocolate, mood and health, it still has not explained the reasons for the addictive quality of chocolate.
So what is it about chocolate? is it because it's the food of gods? or the devil's guilty pleasure?
