It's my birthday and I'll eat good chocolate if I want to! Chocolove review.

I turned 28 today, and what better way to celebrate then some fabulous sweets! I am going to review two Chocolove bars that I enjoyed this week. I will share some more Chocolove reviews over the next couple weeks as I savor each flavor! Today we will examine both a milk and a dark chocolate bar.

One of the awesome features of the Chocolove bars is that inside each wrapper is a love poem. What better gift to slip into that special someone's pocket than a high quality chocolate bar that expresses how you feel for them!

The Toffee & Almonds in Milk Chocolate was smooth and sweet, with a slight crispness from the toffee folded into the chocolate. As a dark chocolate fanatic, this was almost too sweet for my taste, however the high quality ingredients left me satisfied after only 1/2 of the small bar. I enjoyed the texture of the bar, the ingredients were blended together into one quality product. Although I don't normally buy milk chocolate, I would make an exception for this bar!

Ingredients: milk chocolate (sugar, milk, cocoa liquor, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla), toffee (grade aa butter, sugar, almonds, soy lecithin, salt)

Nutritional Information per 1.3oz bar: 210 calories, 15 grams of fat, 2 grams of fiber, 2 grams of protein (5 points, but I was satisfied with half over a period of one day!)

Raspberries in Dark Chocolate is a 55% cocoa content bar with freeze dried raspberries in the bottom of the bar. The quality of the chocolate is smooth and rich, less sweet than the milk chocolate but still very satisfying for a sweet tooth. The raspberries provide a crunch to the bar without upping the sweetness factor. Instead, the berries add a tart bite to the bar that elevates the flavor to another level. You get to enjoy the sweet and tart tangents at the same time without either sensation overwhelming the other.

Ingredients: dark chocolate (cocoa liquor, sugar, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla), freeze dried raspberries

Nutritional Information per 1.2oz bar: 181 calories, 11 grams of fat, 3 grams of fiber, 2 grams of protein (4 points)

I get asked by readers if I am being paid to push products. The simple answer is no. In fact, most of the products I write about are ones I have found and purchased during my trips to the grocery store or on the road. Occasionally, a company will send a sample my way and if I believe the product will serve a need for my readers and I would buy the product myself, then I will share it with you. Sometimes I will write to a company after reading about it, if I believe it will help us lead healthier lifestyles. But even then, if the product doesn't pass my scrutiny, it won't make the screen of Uncovering Food. You can trust that every product or recipe posted here has passed through my lips, and that I wouldn't blog about it if it wasn't worthy of you... my favorite readers.
