Dear Sir,

     I have a question.  If chocolate syrup is added to a glass of milk, 
does it eliminate the nutritional benefits of milk?


Thank you for your time.

Not at all. They're enhanced approximately 202.1% as per a study done
at the Hershey Corporation. Apparantly chocolate thrombinoids are
crucial in activating the common intestinal flora, which can then
break down the proteins in milk much more efficiently than when milk
is consumed sans chocolate. Of course, you should be sure that your
chcoloate syrup is made with *real sugar* rather than corn syrup,
since the same flora are rendered inefficient by the fructose in corn
syrup.

Hope this helps.

Dan
