Now that the official holiday of lovechocolate is over, maybe many of you are feeling ill from ransacking the 75 percent off candy sale at Duane Reade. No shame! I know it’s a good day if I’m eating chocolate before noon. I love a good, plain, bitter dark chocolate bar—90 percent cacao is my favorite. But I shook it up recently and tried a couple of bags of Nicobella Organics Munch.
Nicobella—fair trade and organic! Aw yeah!–is better known for their truffles, but I am pretty into their chocolate and nut mixes, aka Munch, because they give me a solid dose of protein, so I can eat an entire bag without feeling like I lost all of my self control. Bonus: they are relatively low in calories, as far as sweets go. They DO have a good amount of fat though. But fat is good. Let’s all embrace fat.
My favorite flavor is the Coco-nut, followed in close second by the Omega and then the Maple-nut. I would love for Nicobella to come out with a really dark flavor…maybe cacao coffee? Mocha? Hmmm?
Delicious and unique, I can happily pronounce every ingredient on the Nicobella label. I give them 4 out of 5 stars. They can have 5 stars when they make a super dark Munch!
