Almond & Sea Salt Chocolate Bar
About this Product: Sweet and salty is always a tantalizing combination. Organic chocolate & organic almonds, with a touch of Himalayan Sea Salt. 72% cacao, lightly sweetened with coconut sugar, delicious and satisfying. As the company states, "Chocolate: it's food, not candy". These Paleo-designed bars are so delicious, they still taste like candy to us, but are truly the healthier kind. The ingredients here are so few and clean!
Nutritional Bonus: Himalayan sea salt is a fascinating thing...this pink salt was actually formed in the Himalayan mountain ranges 200 million years ago, and preserved by lava over this time, protected from modern day pollution. It contains the same 84 trace elements & minerals that are present in the human body, like calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sulfate. Not only does it have less sodium than regular table salt, but it is believed to have a whole list of nutritional benefits, like balancing the cellular ph levels, lowering blood pressure, and increasing hydration.
We always have to mention the health benefits of dark chocolate, so feel free to read more about that here.
Why we love this Company: Stone-ground in small batches in Long Island, NY, sourcing their single-origin fair-trade cacao directly from an organic farming co-op in Dominican Republic. We love that they went to great lengths to keep their ingredients so simple and clean, holding several certifications, and using only maple sugar as a sweetener.
