First, a confession. I did receive this product in the mail from Enjoy Life without charge, but they didn’t *request* a review either. (I’m going to anyways though)
As a self-diagnosised chocoholic, I have to tell you that my standards for chocolate are about the mid-point. I don’t like el-cheapo chocolate, but am not a “pure, unrefined chocolate” snob either. Pretty average, if it is well made chocolate, chances are I am going to like it.
I had no idea when I opened the package what I was getting. I actually thought it was a granola-type bar. Nope. This is a full sized, high quality chocolate bar. OMG. I thought I was going to die. My co-workers heard me squeal with delight all the way down the hall. Since we’re dairy free, I figured I was going to be SOL for chocolate bars. Sure, Enjoy Life makes nice chocolate chips, but a bar?
The bar is solid & can be sectioned off rather easily, although why you would share is beyond me. This bar has crispy rice in it, so has the chocolate & the crunch – maybe like a CRUNCH bar? (I don’t know, I was a Caramilk addict before gfcf) The chocolate seems similar to the chocolate chips Enjoy Life makes, smooth and semi-sweet.
If you haven’t guessed already, I LOVE LOVE this treat. It is marked “Dairy, Nut & Soy Free” and because it is from Enjoy Life, it is free of: wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish and shellfish and made in a dedicated nut & gluten free facility. This bar is also free of casein, potato, sesame & sulfites. It is 200 calories, 15 g of fat, so similar to any other chocolate bar
You owe your inner-chocolate craving, PMSing, want to diet but love to eat self to try these. I don’t know what they cost, but I am buying a case. (And no, I’m not sharing)
