Dallas, TX, August 21, 2008 --( Chocolate Prescription received an A+ rating from Gourmet Food PR ( for its 1 Week and 4 Week Prescriptions of 72% dark chocolate (cocoa) bars.

Gourmet Food PR awarded high ratings for the product’s gift-quality packaging and the overall smoothness and quality of the chocolate.

“Chocolate Prescription gets an A+ for stunning packaging and presentation, a deliciously balanced chocolate product, and a truly unique concept with enormous growth potential. Great product for anyone looking to manage their sweets intake, and one of the best gift items we’ve seen in years!” stated Ryan Montague, Gourmet Food PR’s president.

Ryan added, “The first thing that came to mind when reading ‘dark chocolate’ . . . was that the chocolate must be very bland and/or bitter. Within seconds of eating the first bite, those concerns were instantly erased from our minds. Chocolate Prescription obviously uses high quality gourmet chocolate and ingredients to create this silky smooth dark chocolate. Surprisingly, there wasn’t much bitterness at all - as was expected. At the same time, it wasn’t too sweet and loaded with sugar, creating a perfect happy-medium.”
