|Foiled Again. Chocolate in a great wrap.|
Dark Chocolate is the new plaid. Delicious and rich, chocolate companies seek to thrill our tastebuds with temptations of tobacco, woodsy undertones or the slight acidic romps among fruity teasings. So when Simply Lite came out with their dark chocolate bar, I was mesmerized at the possibilities.
Granted, 50% isn’t that dark. Many of us are accustomed to the more daring 85+ forays into the dark side, so 50% seems hardly a foray, let alone the dark side. Still, with an initially dry experience, immediately followed by the sweet hints of vanilla and then cinnamon as it melts away, the flavor is definitely one of dark chocolate that is to be given some street cred.
And while I am no fan of maltitol, the flavor here delivers for the lowest carb content of any of their bars, a mere 1 carb per 3 squares.
Not as high octane as other dark chocolates, this is definitely my favorite of their products to date. I look forward to seeing what else this fledgling company has to offer.
