Feeling down + Dark Chocolate -> Euphoria !?
Chocolate don't have to be sweet always, If you ask a meso American from 1900BC, they would prefer it as a drink of cocoa seed powder mixed with corn puree with some chilli's mixed, and it used to be a froathing drink.

Ok, So Why chocolate is in so demand and why we have an addiction to it?

Chocolate is made from roasted  cocoa seed powder, and dark chocolate have more concentration of it. 

Cocoa powder have good concentration of flavonoids, mainly flavanols which enhances the mood and  gives the brain a feeling of euphoria.

Dark chocolate have more concentration of it.

But with it's benefits comes the risk,  chocolates available today are mostly sweetened which amounts for high calories. Whith increase intake of chocolate comes the risk of weight gain, insuline resistivity, etc.

Also, the feeling of euphoria will depend on how you like the taste. That means if you don't find the dark chocolate palatable then it's highly unlikely you will feel good after having it.
