Things That Make You Go... Mmmm!
Ok, this is the first of many product reviews involving chocolate! I love chocolate, and I eat a little every day. Yes, every day! With a good quality dark chocolate, you only need a little to satisfy that chocolate indulgence. Plus, it is the dark chocolate that has all those healthy antioxidants reported in studies... not milk chocolate!
I am always trying different dark chocolate bars. One of my favorites are the line of Endangered Species bars. Not all of their flavors are vegan, but many are. My personal favorites by far are the:
Dark Chocolate with Cocoa Nibs ('Bat Bar')
Extreme Dark Chocolate with 88% Cocoa ('Black Panther Bar')
Dark Chocolate with Espresso Beans ('Tiger Bar')
I love each of these flavors for different reasons. The cocoa nibs bar is very unique with actual crushed bits of the cocoa nib in the bar (the nib is inside of the cocoa bean that is ground into the cocoa 'liquor'). Divine! I love the intensity of the extreme 88% cocoa bar when I want that true deep cocoa hit! As for the espresso beans bar... it's funny because I don't drink coffee, I have never liked it. But, I have always loved the aroma of coffee and coffee flavored sweets. Dipping pieces of this bar into my hot green or rooibos tea is a morning indulgence!
Ask Santa to please pop one or two of these fabulous bars in your stocking, or if you can't wait that long, treat yourself!!
