I don’t know about you, but when I’m looking for something sweet to end my night with (and to accompany me on the couch with while I’m catching up on my DVR) I turn to chocolate. Because at the end of my long day of working, picking kids up from school, making dinner, then making Dinner Number Two (because the first dinner was a bust), and chasing children around the house until they submit to a bath, I want just one thing to be perfect and amazing, and a little bit magical. And I found it in a chocolate bar called Freaky Health Chocolate, which is not only delicious, it is chocolate that you should consider adding to your beauty and health routine.
I know, I know. You’re all like, “chocolate that is healthy? Peace out because I’m sure it tastes like chalk. I’ll be over here with this Hershey’s Dark.” You will be doing yourself a major disservice if you don’t try this chocolate because it is not only delicious, it has super powers. No, seriously. It does, because it is so freaking yummy (I think that is where the “freaky” part of the name comes from) AND it is made from superfoods, cacao, and ancient healing herbs that help boost energy and provide antioxidants to the body. I like to think of it as an energy drink that also has beauty benefits, delivered in the form of a chocolate bar. My favorite flavor, the Beauty Bar, has ingredients that help enhance shiny hair and bright skin.
The bars are just the right amount of sweet (naturally sweetened by mulberries), so that the rich chocolaty taste really comes through, and the addition of sea salt adds a nice balance to the sweetness of the bar. I love knowing that eating them is also doing something good for my body, and helping in some small way, to restore balance to it via the painstakingly and carefully sourced superfoods and herbs. Check out the website to find out more about the superfoods used in the bars, and their magical healing powers.
The bars currently come in a collection of four flavors – Beauty, Energy, Immunity, and Mountain High – that you can order online at freakyhealthco.com or; if you’re in NYC, you can stop by the NYC beauty emporium CAP Beauty to sample the additional collaborative bar made exclusively for them.
Your nightly chocolate nibble will never be the same.
