Those who know me, know I love dark chocolate – every day. Lindt 85% has remained a staple for years (and years), but every now and again I’ll try another brand.
While Vega’s maca chocolate bar isn’t exactly ‘new’, I recently discovered it at the CHFA Show in Toronto. And by discovered, I mean devoured it!
Containing 70% dark chocolate infused with maca root powder (a super-food providing a host of health benefits including energy, stamina and hormonal balance), this bar reminded me of the raw chocolate I used to buy from Chocosol years a go.
Its potent taste provides the perfect amount of bitter with sweet. Its smooth texture is really nice, same for its easy ‘snap’ into bite-sized squares.
One bar down, and I can already sense a new addiction (sorry Lindt!) on my horizon. A guilt-free one too. That’s because this bar is considered a health food, with a daily recommended dosage of 1 bar/day!
I’ll take that kind of recommendation gladly….after lunch, with a cup of matcha green tea.
Talk about sensory heaven. Can’t wait for tomorrow’s dose!
