Better-for-you candy bars

Posted Jan 22 2010 12:00am

Qbel chocolate

Last week we here in the KIWI offices got a box marked “Chocolate Inside” and let me tell you, there’s nothing like a box marked “Chocolate Inside” to warm your heart.

There was indeed chocolate inside (that would have been pretty mean otherwise, right?), from Qbel. They make these crunchy, tasty chocolate wafers (I guess think Kit Kat, but then don’t–these are better). And every day this week around 4 p.m. I’ve been standing in our supply closet, trying to decide between milk and dark, flat wafer or roll. (I just polished off a dark chocolate roll, if you must know. 130 worth-it calories.)

Look, I know it’s a candy bar, and they know it’s a candy bar. But it has good ingredients and no bad ingredients, so it doesn’t really feel like a candy bar. It feels…happy. So maybe I won’t have one every day next week, but I sure enjoyed myself this week. Do you have a favorite better-for-you indulgence? Do you look for stuff like this to give your kids as treats? Want some Qbel for yourself? Check out their Facebook and Twitter pages–I hear they do contests and giveaways!
