I just love chocolate (who doesn’t?)! Today I have the pleasure of reviewing two powerhouse chocolate bars from Chocholistic. If you’re unfamiliar with Chocholistic let me make an introduction! It has everything I look for in chocolate – it’s raw, vegan, gluten free, over 70% cacao, it has no refined sugar, it’s made with organic fair trade ingredients, and it’s chock full of superfoods and antioxidants. It truly is a perfect healthy snack. I love using it to get me through long and grueling audiobook sessions- just a few pieces and I’m set for a long time ! It’s so rich and satisfying that you really don’t need to eat too much. And because its not sweetened with white sugar, it doesn’t give me that instant craving for more.
Chocholistic is created by Kenzie Harrick . She is a holistic health counselor as well as a chocolatier. Her website has lots of great info. She currently makes several types of bars. Here are the two I was psyched to try.
Original Superfood: If you’re used to regular chocolate bars, you might be surprised at first by the flavor of this bar because it’s not too sweet. It has a rich earthy, almost coffee-like flavor (there’s no coffee in it). The texture is creamy with a pleasant crispy texture. As I ate it, I fell more and more in love. It doesn’t spike your blood sugar and gives long sustaining energy and all the amazing benefits of added ingredients like chia seeds, maca, chlorella and chaga, to name a few. It’s not just a yummy treat, it’s actually super good for you!
Gogi Superfruit: This one is a bit sweeter, so if you prefer your chocolate sweet, go for this one! It’s delicious. To me, the taste instantly reminded me of those Nestle Chunky bars from back in the day – which is pretty awesome to have a healthy version of that…my husband agreed! It has a rich creamy texture with bits of chewy fruit. Yummy! Gogi berries are a powerful antioxidant also known for providing an energy boost. In addition it contains exotic ingredients like baobab, camu camu, lucuma, and reishi. Again, nutrient rich and so tasty at the same time!
The cheerful packaging makes me smile and I absolutely love Kenzie’s philosophy and commitment to growing a healthy happy world! I can’t wait to try the other flavors: Herbal Mint, Cacao Coconut, the brand new Mocha Chip and also a Superslim bar that promises to help with weight loss (wow- I sense a whole other blog post?!).
One thing about medicinal chocolate is that it can get expensive – Kenzie has addressed this and created affordable pricing ($7.99 per bar), which is an excellent value considering the quality and quantity of all the organic ingredients. She also offers free shipping on orders over $50.
