Chocolate gifts to help kick that cough

With the recently released news that chocolate is even more beneficial to your health than once thought, you might be scrambling to find some decadent treats for those last minute chocolate lovers on your holiday gift list. 

Don't worry, we've got you covered.

In case you haven't heard, researchers in the U.K. found that chocolate may be a natural cough suppressant. Three hundred people took part in a clinical trial, in which 60 percent of them stopped hacking when they were given theobromine, a substance that's found in cocoa. Researchers suggest that taking a daily bar of dark chocolate will help knock out that cough. 

So not only would sending a gift of chocolate to someone special this holiday season cheer them up, it will help kick that winter cold.  

Here's a selection of some chocolate treats for everyone on your list.
