Your link says this:
When eaten in small amounts, usually no more than a one ounce square a day, dark chocolate is a healthy treat. It is full of antioxidants, improves circulation, improves memory, and boosts energy in a natural and healthy way. Make sure you get unsweetened dark chocolate with at least a 70% cocoa content (higher is better).
Point is, it's good for you in small quantities. In large quantities, it'll do more harm than good due to the sugar.

In the context of a healthy, balanced diet, sugar isn't bad anyway.

Eat the chocolate that you prefer, in appropriate amounts. The health 'benefits' that you'd get from option for dark over others are likely pretty negligible in the grand scheme of your overall health.
