While I was at Zazzy’z Coffee House in Abingdon, Virginia last weekend I saw Chocolove “Fair Trade Organic” Dark Chocolate Bars at the counter.
On the very high recommendation of my friend, I decided to grab one. 😀
In addition to being “pretty” (that’s always a plus, right? lol) I was told they have “love messages” on the inside. How fun is that?? And so of course I flipped one over and took a look at the nutrition facts.
I have never been a huge fan of dark chocolate, but my tastes have changed a lot since going low carb, and I’ve heard several people in the 90 Day Low Carb Challenge mention enjoying dark chocolate as a low carb treat.
Sure enough, there are only 6 Net Carbs per serving:
You’ll notice that a serving is 1/3 of the bar – which is huge. I doubt I could eat even that much in one sitting, given I do good to eat a sugar-free Hershey’s MINI chocolate bar. My craving for sweets has just changed dramatically.
I just unwrapped my Chocolove Dark Chocolate Bar this morning, and can’t wait to dive into it! Especially after looking through their website, where I read:
Why is Chocolove better than conventional chocolate bars?
The cocoa beans used in Chocolove are premium beans, which means they are fully ripened and free of any bad beans. The fully ripened bean allows for proper chocolate flavor development upon roasting. The beans are roasted just enough to develop chocolate flavor.
Chocolove chocolate is ground finer and conched longer than most chocolates to provide a smooth texture and a smooth flavor. Chocolove bars have higher cocoa content which translates to less sugar than other chocolates.
Have you ever tried a Chocolove Dark Chocolate Bar? I would love to hear your thoughts! And if not, what’s your favorite low carb sweet treat? 🙂
