Took this home to give it a try and thought, “eh, it’s gonna be chewy almonds in salty dark chocolate, what’s the big deal (shoulder shrug).” Oh, the big deal is that it’s not chewy almonds in salty chocolate! The almonds are whole dry roasted crunchy almonds, covered in sea salt, then covered in smooth 55% dark Belgian chocolate. There is no blending of flavors here, you taste the salt, you taste the almonds, you taste the chocolate, every bite is wonderful.
These three ingredients are also healthy for you. If you are going to eat chocolate, you’d want to eat one that’s good for you. Almonds provide the healthy fats we need to counter all the other “bad” fats. It can also reduce your chance of heart attacks, builds strong bones and teeth, helps with brain functions and may even reduce risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Sea salt is a better option than regular table salt because it’s much less refines and you need less because it’s so flavorful. Dark chocolate is a known antioxidant and can reduce your blood pressure. Plus you’ll keep your crazy chocolate addiction at bay since you don’t need to eat as much dark chocolate than milk chocolate. Your waistline will be thankful!
This chocolate bar, made by Chocolove, only has 7 ingredients. One other thing to mention, they print a love poem on the inside of the wrapper. Not sure if all bars have different poems, but this one was printed with Shakespeare’s Sonnet 43, When most I wink then do mine eyes best see. If you pick one of these bars up at our register, let us know which poem is printed on your wrapper.
