I have always been and will always be a sweets girl. It is SO much easier for me to give up fast food, fatty meals, and even gluten-rich foods than it is for me to give up my sweets. I am a baker so cutting back on sugary foods is painfully difficult! But, with the rising obesity, diabetes and heart disease epidemics, it is really important to me to stay as healthy as I can. One thing that I cannot and absolutely will not live without is chocolate.
Chocolate can actually be considered a healthy food – can you believe it?! However, most companies that manufacture chocolate add a TON of sugar, not to mention many other icky ingredients… not so great for your health and figure! ChocoPerfection, who claims to be “The best tasting weight loss chocolate… ever”, has created a product that allows us to actually indulge in mouthwatering goodness. Their chocolate, unlike any other on the market, uses two natural plant-based sweeteners called oligofructose and erythritol which makes ChocoPerfection 100% sugar-free. It also does NOT contain Malitol, an ingredient widely used in low-carb foods that causes unhealthy side effects. This product is GREAT for Diabetics!
More on Oligofructose from the ChocoPerfection website (I couldnt have explained it better myself!):
“Oligofructose is classified as a “prebiotic fiber” meaning that it takes root in the digestive tract to support the growth of beneficial probiotic flora. Ultimately, oligfructose will rid your digestive tract of harmful bacteria, promote the excretion of toxins, stop sugar cravings and strengthen your immune system.”
The Taste Test: After trying a ton of “healthy” and gluten-free chocolate products, I had an idea in mind of what ChocoPerfection would taste like. Have you ever had Chocolate Slim Fast? That is typically what “healthy” chocolate tastes like. Well, boys and girls, this is NOT anything like those products. ChocoPerfection really is the best healthy chocolate bar I have ever had. I am all about dark chocolate so I tried the Dark Chocolate Bars and the Dark Almond Bars. First, they taste delicious – true guilt-free chocolate. Second, they really do fill you up! I think I got half way through the first bar and was feeling full so I saved the rest for later.
