Mmmm, chocolate! I love chocolate.
Well, our whole family loves chocolate. Our cupboard always has a handful of chocolate in it somewhere.
We don’t eat too much though as don’t forget it’s better for you in moderation. So you can imagine I was very excited when I was asked to do a product talk on Well Naturally No Sugar Added chocolate. I went YAY!! Chocolate, we love and with no added sugar even better, right!
The Well Naturally No Sugar Added range is made without any added sugar. There are no artificial sweeteners or “secret sugars” like agave syrup or fruit concentrates. Instead, they use Stevia to sweeten their products. Stevia is a natural, plant-based sweetener that is around 300 times sweeter than sugar. Stevia has no calories and no impact on blood sugar levels.
We received our lovely bag of goodies and couldn’t wait to get stuck into it all.
I rallied around all of my taste testers and sat them down at the table to try a piece from each block of chocolate. I was wondering how we would go eating a chocolate with no added sugar in it, but the kids were all ready to give it a go.
So after everyone indulged, here is the verdict:
Milk Chocolate fruit and nut: everyone loved! Nice amount of fruit and nuts and a nice creamy taste.
Milk Chocolate creamy milk: the 6, 9 and 11 yr old enjoyed eating this. The 16 yr old didn’t enjoy it as much as the fruit and nut. Hubby and I weren’t too keen on it either. It was still a creamy chocolate but not a favourite.
Dark Chocolate acai: the 6 yr old didn’t like this as she doesn’t like dark chocolate as much as milk. The 9 and 11 yr old enjoyed this and said it was very nice. Hubby wasn’t too keen on it either. I loved it. I could have eaten the whole block. I love dark chocolate. It was nice and smooth. A great dark chocolate.
Dark Chocolate mint crisp: I didn’t try this one as I am not much of a mint fan. Everyone else enjoyed it though and said that it was nice and minty.
Dark Chocolate rich dark: The kids didn’t like this one as much as the others. I think they like dark chocolate when it has something in it such as the bits of mint crisp! Hubby and I liked this chocolate. It was nice and smooth. There was no after-taste left in your mouth that I know some dark chocolates can leave a residue.
After eating and trying the Well Naturally No Sugar Added Chocolate range, we were all quite surprised that it was still a great tasting chocolate. It’s nice to know that you can still enjoy a yummy chocolate snack without all of that added sugar.
Did you know that some Australians are consuming far more sugar than is necessary? It’s in the fruit juice that we have for breakfast, our pasta sauce at lunch, and sometimes in our sweet afternoon treat. Well Naturallys mission is to help consumers reduce their sugar intake, thereby increasing their overall health and wellbeing, whilst still being able to indulge in their favourite snack.
Well Naturally products are available in Woolworths, Coles, independent grocers, health food stores and good pharmacies nationwide.
