Lily's Stevia Chocolate Bars Review and Giveaway and Endorpohin Bracelet Winner!!
Posted Dec 05 2012 8:15am
Have you ever heard of Lily's sweets ? They make delicious Dark Chocolate bars that are sweetened with all-natural Stevia, the only natural sweetener with 0 calories.
Lily's founders, Cynthia Tice and Chuck Genuardi, have a long history in the Natural Foods Industry working in retailing, manufacturing, and consulting. So they had long been aware of the advantages of stevia as the only all natural, no calorie sweetener available today. As admitted chocoholics, Cynthia and Chuck were determined to come up with a delicious, healthy, sugar free alternative to their favorite treat. And after years spent working on a formula, they created Lily's. Who is Lily? was named after a brave little girl who has beaten the odds and has a big heart! When Lily was 7 years old, she was diagnosed with brain cancer. After a long and hard recovery, she was diagnosed with cancer a second time. She beat it again! Then she raised $9,000 to help other cancer kids have access to wheelchairs.
Chuck was kind enough to send me all of their flavors to sample and review. Almond, Crispy Rice, Coconut and Original. The first one I tried was the Crispy Rice. It was the perfect amount of rice crispies, and was so good with the dark chocolate! Then I tried the Almond. I love anything with almond's, so I knew I would love this one, and I did! The Coconut and Original were amazing as well. I'd have to say the Coconut was my favorite. Again, just the perfect amount of coconut mixed with the creamy dark chocolate! These are all so good, and I loved that there is no bitterness or aftertaste, and that they have 25% fewer calories than other dark chocolate, with 100% of the indulgence! I can eat them with no guilt! Each serving has less than 1g of sugars, and is fewer than 23 total carbs, most of those being dietary fiber. Lily’s chocolate bars also have a low glycemic index, so they are a good sweet for diabetics or children to enjoy. My honey and boys loved them too, which is saying a lot, because my family doesn't really like sweets. (CRAZY, I know!!) Another thing I love about them is the company is not only fair trade certified , but they also donate a percentage of all their proceeds to cancer research. You can go here to locate a store near you, or you can also order them on Amazon! Lily's is offering one of my readers 4 bars, 1 of each flavor! Ends next Tuesday, Dec. 11.
