It’s been a bitterly cold week here in the Tri-State. O.M.G! Temperatures hit as low as 11 degrees Fahrenheit which sounds bad, but not in comparison to –15 degrees Fahrenheit in Minneapolis. That whole Midwest region weather thing is just something else. Anyway, enough of me whining, here are this week’s Friday’s Faves! Enjoy!
1. Pure 70% Dark Chocolate with Kickin’ Coconut by Sweetriot Sweetriot, a globally responsible chocolate company, uses high quality, premium, and all-natural ingredients. Recently they sent me some samples to try out, and my favorite was the 70% Dark Chocolate with Coconut. Now here is the best part - all their chocolate bars are antioxidant packed, vegan, USDA organic, and only 21 calories per square. If you really love dark chocolate, you’ll love the Pure 85% Dark Chocolate which was too bitter for me. As much as I enjoy flaxseeds, I didn't enjoy the bold flavor of flaxseeds in the Pure 70% Dark Chocolate w/Flax. Additionally, in the little tins each “peace” of chocolate is only 1 – 2 calories, but I assure you that you’ll need quite a few to taste the flavor. For now, I will most definitely be purchasing the Dark Chocolate with Coconut since it curbs my sweet tooth and is antioxidant packed. ~ $5 a bar @ Whole Foods, Duane Reade, Wegmans, and more
