Review: Healthy Chocolate Mint Bar

Published 18:44 pm

I've been looking for a chocolate mint bar that is healthier for the body than the popular name-brand ones that are sold in conventional grocery stores and drug stores.

You can order online chocolate mint bars that are free of the additives that are found in the ones that are sold in various stores, including Whole Foods and other "health food" stores. These are very pricey.

I will review a chocolate mint bar that I found at Whole Foods, which isn't cheap, but also not as pricey as ones online. The name of the company who makes this chocolate mint bar (and other flavors) is Endangered Species Chocolate.

The front of the wrapper says "ALL-NATURAL." This is an ambiguous term, because it can be a reference to flavor, rather than ingredients. The wrapper says "DARK CHOCOLATE WITH DEEP FOREST MINT" and is 72 percent cocoa.

Now, I'll be honest about the taste. It tastes pretty good, though it's not the sweetest chocolate mint bar I've ever had. The texture is very smooth.

I much prefer this product in melted form, poured over a chocolate muffin. It is very good this way, very yummy and delicious. This product is not my first choice for a chocolate mint bar, but that isn't to say that it wouldn't be someone else's first choice.

It depends on how sweet you like your candy. And technically, this product is candy.

You might be interested to read about:

One bar is 43 grams, and the entire thing has 420 calories. The entire bar (visibly about one and a half times the size of a standard Hershey bar) also contains 36 grams of fat, of which 20 of those grams are saturated fat; 42 grams of carbohydrates, zero sodium, zero cholesterol , 6 grams of protein, and (surprisingly) 10 grams of fiber.

Does this product contain trans fats? The nutrition label say zero grams for trans fats, but a savvy consumer knows better than to trust the nutrition label. Instead, one should read every ingredient in the ingredients list, for tell-tale signs of trans fats.

According to the ingredients of this chocolate mint product, it does not contain any trans fats. There is nothing "hydrogenated" in the ingredients list.

So what, then, is in the ingredients list? Bittersweet chocolate (chocolate liquor, unbleached walter-filtered beet sugar, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla), and natural mint flavor.

"Natural mint flavor" could mean that this flavoring compound is a synthetic chemical. "Flavor" is not an ingredient. "Natural mint flavor" does not identify an ingredient; it only describes the taste of an ingredient!

Endangered Species chocolate mint bar is produced on equipment that also processes products containing milk, peanuts and tree nuts. The big problem I have, as far as ingredients, is the soy lecithin, since processed soy has no redeeming virtues and is strongly tied to various issues including digestive and thyroid disorders, and immune system deficiency.
