This is not a drill: Chocolate is about to get healthier and even more tasty *blinks* *rubs eyes*.

The boys in the lab have put their juicy brains to best possible use and come up with a production technique that not only enhances the flavour of chocolate, but makes it better for us.

Currently, during the process of turning cocoa into chocolate, many of antioxidants are lost.

But by storing the cocoa pods for longer antioxidants are more plentiful.

The research was unveiled by Dr Emmanuel Ohene Afoakwa of the University of Ghana during a presentation at the American Chemical Society.
