Yes, all chocolate has caffeine in it. The amount of caffeine present can vary. The amount of caffeine in chocolate is heavily dependent on the varieties of cacao used to make it as well as how dark the chocolate was roasted during the chocolate's manufacture. There is also another alkaloid called theobromine in cocoa which is similar in structure to caffeine.
There is more caffeine in forestero cocoa (which is the bulk of the world's cocoa and has its roots in the upper Amazon basin) than there is criollo cocoa (which is the fine flavored cocoa with genetics from Venezuela). Conversely, criollo cacao has larger amounts of theobromine than it does caffeine.
Current research in cocoa uses mass spectroscopy to analyze the ratio of theobromine to caffeine to determine the genetic heritage of various cocoas. This research has proved useful during archaeological studies of ancient pots (with remains of the ancient cocoa drinks) to determine the varieties of cocoa used during the time of the Aztecs and Mayas.
It should be pointed out that there is an internet rumor that chocolate has no caffeine in it. This is incorrect.

Yes, chocolate bars have a small amount of caffeine in them. For example: 1 oz of Dark Chocolate will have about 12 mg of caffeine. 1 bar of Dark Chocolate will have about 70 mg of caffeine. 1.55 oz of Milk Chocolate will have 9 mg of caffeine. 100 grams of Milk Chocolate will have about 20 mg of caffeine. Hershey's chocolate bars have about 9mg of caffeine in them.
White chocolate does not contain caffeine, since those ingredients that make chocolate dark are absent in the white chocolate production process. One may still get sugar rush from white chocolate, but it will be absent the caffeine in chocolate of the milk or dark varieties.

20 mg / oz - http://coffeetea.about.com/library/blcaffeine.htm While the above referenced content of caffeine may be common in commercially processed chocolate, it is not always so. The caffeine content of chocolate has been the subject of much debate -- and conflicting research from the scientific community. Some data sugests that there is caffeine content in the cocoa bean, though the International Cocoa Organization states that the caffeine content is very low. Other data suggests that there is no caffeine in cocoa, and that any caffeine present has been added by manufacturers. It's also interesting to note that some data suggests that the caffeine only resides in the fiber and husk that surround the cocoa bean. In that case, if the beans are properly cleaned, there should be virtually NO caffeine in the resulting chocolate product. - http://www.thefivereasons.com/
Chocolate does not contain any caffeine. This is an urban legend. Caffeine is often confused with another alkaloid that has similar effects. The alkaloid is Theobromine, which is the active ingredient in chocolate and is toxic to dogs.
