Innocent Chocolate Sheds Guilt with Mellow Tasty Dark Chocolate- 100% Cacao

Hi all, I’m Jill Diffendal, guest blogger for Engchik Eats!
You can find me on Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest @ HumbleDuchess77.

Like just about everyone on the planet, I love chocolate, but not the calories and the carbs. So I was excited when Engchik asked me to review Innocent Chocolate.

The label makes some big promises: “Blocks Sugar | Absorbs Fat | Shreds Pounds” and, in more direct terms, “zero net effective calories and zero net effective carbs.” 

The chocolate contains “natural ingredients which lower your body’s absorption of sugars, starches and fats.” Those ingredients come from sea vegetables and plant fibers, according to the company’s website
Head there to learn more about the ingredients, where they come from, and how they’re good for you.   

Of course, the real question is, how does it taste? Pretty good! Now, if you’re expecting the rich creamy taste of, say, Godiva milk chocolate, you’re going to be disappointed. 

But if you like the bitterness of dark chocolate and don’t mind a little grittiness in the texture – it is 77% cacao and contains no dairy, after all – give this a try. 

It’s got a dark, earthy, cocoa-y goodness that’s both enjoyable and won’t compromise your healthy eating regimen, plus it’s also organic, free trade, gluten free, soy free, sugar free, dairy free, vegan friendly, and non-GMO. And, unlike many “diet” versions of indulgent foods, there were no adverse effects on my tummy, either.

Innocent Chocolate is currently available in 2.65-ounce bars at $59.95 for 12 bars, with free standard shipping. That’s about $5 a piece, competitive with or even cheaper than some similar “low-carb” chocolate bars I’ve seen in specialty groceries. And soon you’ll be able to get single squares, protein chocolate bars, liquid chocolate, chocolate milk, pudding, and green coffee energy drink.
