Chocolate can keep you up late


A 1.5-ounce Hershey's milk chocolate bar, for example, contains 9 milligrams, about three times as much caffeine as a cup of decaffeinated coffee. But a dark chocolate Hershey's candy bar has far more: about 30 milligrams. That is the same as a cup of instant tea, and slightly less than a typical cup of brewed tea, about 40 milligrams.

White chocolate does not contain any theobromine, and little if any caffeine.


The darker the chocolate, the more caffeine.
