Can Monkeys Eat Chocolate?

Can Monkeys Eat Chocolate? (Or Ice Cream??)

Although there’s no extensive research on how eating chocolate can affect monkeys (extensive research was done on dogs, cats, rats, and mice), common sense tells us that monkeys shouldn’t eat chocolate as it’s not a natural food source for them. That being said, monkeys can get “hooked” on chocolate, just as we can, and would even rob it out of your hands if an opportunity presented itself.
