DELICIOUS! Far exceeded my expectations!
Like crack. Only good for you.
Coco Polo’s chocolate, by contrast, is tempered perfectly. It has just the right snap and mouth-feel. Because it’s flavored with Stevia and Erythritol (the easiest-on-your-stomach sugar alcohol), you can eat the whole bar in one sitting and not suffer any unpleasant effects. At least I didn’t. Everyone is different. But I can say that even small amounts of malitol-sweetened chocolate cause me gastric upset.
That being said, this product is not as sweet as ordinary sugared chocolate. But that is going to be true of any sugar-free chocolate. In particular, Coco Polo’s sweetness is also somehow more subtle, which is the best I can explain it. If your familiar with Stevia as a sweetener in tea and coffee, you’ll know what I’m talking about. It’s not as intense as sugar, but it’s still nice and doesn’t have any chemical aftertaste. If you are a fan of less sweet dark-style chocolates, than transitioning to this sugar free band is easy.
If I didn’t know any better I would give this product 3 or 4 stars because it is not as good as regular chocolate. But having tried to make my own for years, I recognize when I’ve been outdone and I’m giving it a 5 star review. I’ve also tried many brands of sugar free chocolate over the years, and I like this one the best.
On the downside, I think this chocolate is too pricey. When I ordered mine, it was shipped in an insulated container with cold packs to keep it stable. This was in the spring and early fall – perhaps in the winter they forgo this treatment. (They don’t ship at all in the heat of summer.) So perhaps the extra cost is to cover the special shipping.
