As you may have read in some of my previous posts I have been making more of an effort to be healthier and lose weight. I’ve been working really hard to create a new lifestyle for myself and part of that has been finding healthier alternatives for some of my favourite foods.
I love chocolate, as I’m sure most of you do too, but it’s not great for you, is high in calories, and most chocolate bars on the market contain soy which is something I can’t have. I recently discovered Goodio though, and I’m so glad I did! They offer a wide range of chocolate bars* that are actually relatively healthy!
The stone ground, craft chocolate is all made in Helsinki with minimal processing. All of their chocolates are raw, vegan, soy free, dairy free, and gluten free so they fit in with a lot of people’s dietary needs and the packaging is super cute!
They’re significantly lower in calories than the average chocolate bar so I’m able to indulge without feeling guilty about it later. Also, all of the bars contain raw cacao, which is high in antioxidants as well as other organic and nutritious ingredients.
Goodio kindly sent me 8 of their chocolate bars to try, and I was really impressed! The texture was just like actual chocolate and was just as decadent. I tried:
Chai: traditional chai spices with smooth and creamy chocolate
Coconut: a sweet blend of raw cacao and coconut
Licorice & Sea Buckthorn: sweet licorice and spicy sea buckthorn
Coffee: a sweet and creamy blend of espresso beans and cashews
Wild Blueberry: a unique combination of raw chocolate and wild Finnish blueberries
Chili: cacao and chili for a sweet chocolate with a bit of a kick
Mint: a refreshing blend of cacao and peppermint leaves
Arriba: authentic cacao from Ecuador
Coffee, Mint, and Coconut were definitely my favourites of the 8 though the variety is really great and ensures there is something for everyone.
Whether you have strict dietary needs, are trying to be healthier, or just like trying different chocolates, I definitely recommend checking out the offerings from Goodio!
