“Would you like to try chocolate with no calories” said the email. HELL YES! I replied, possibly a bit more politely, and a week or two later a package arrived for me from Chocologic.
Chocologic are launching in the UK at the end of November 2015. I was sent three varieties of the chocolate to try – Milk Chocolate with Hazelnut, Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate.
I was interested as my history of having diabetes (when I was pregnant) means I’m at risk of it developing in later life – so I do need to look out for signs. But how diabetes-friendly is Chocologic?
Chocologic say their chocolate has “no influence on the glycemic level” – this is marvellous news!!
In addition, there are those times of the month when you need to eat chocolate. Would Chocologic help in those times of need?
It definitely helped. A lot. Include that it has been stressful at work and I haven’t wanted to share my bars and I’ve eaten a couple of chunks and made them last (rather than scoffing the lot), and it gets a thumbs up from me.
One interesting side affect for me, every time I had some Chocologic chocolate, I got the hiccups. Very funny!
So, why is Chocologic so fantastic? Because it is sweetened with Stevia, a natural plant-based sweetener. It can be up to 300 times sweeter than ordinary sugar. Also, Stevia doesn’t contain calories. At Blogfest this weekend just gone I was given a Stevia plant, so I’m going to be doing a bit more exploring with it soon…
But the main question, how does it taste?
I was sent all three varieties – and of the three, I finished the Milk Chocolate with Hazelnut first which isn’t like me as that would usually be the one I’d leave till last. The Milk Chocolate variety was the next to go, and I have a few chunks left of the Dark Chocolate version in my drawers at work. The two milk chocolate varieties were as good as a regular milk chocolate – say Cadbury’s when they made creamier chocolate. I would definitely buy these again. The Dark Chocolate is one I would buy Shaun – with his dairy allergies, and how quickly he’ll scoff a bar of chocolate, having a low calorie low sugar alternative is a good thing, especially with the chances of him developing diabetes too.
The best thing about the bars is how affordable they are – they retail in Tesco for £1.29 for the Milk Chocolate version and £1.49 for the other two. That’s my kind of price, and my kind of product! Keep an eye out for some promotions coming soon too!
Chocologic looks like it’s available from all good supermarkets – I’m definitely going to be buying some more. We were sent the three bars for the purpose of review – all opinions are my own. You can follow Chocologic on Twitter here
