First Presidency

The position of the General Authorities on the matter of the use of chocolate was expressed years ago by the First Presidency (then composed of Presidents Joseph F. Smith, Anthon H. Lund and Charles W. Penrose) as follows:
"The drinking of cocoa and chocolate, as it is ordinarily indulged in, that is, without making a habit of it, could not be regarded as breaking the Word of Wisdom. But the drinking of cocoa and chocolate may be carried to such an extent as to result in great bodily harm, and this of course would be a violation of the Spirit of the revelation called the Word of Wisdom."

(First Presidency, Joseph Fielding Smith, Harold B. Lee, N. Eldon Tanner, June 15, 1970)
