The Best-Tasting Low-Carb Chocolate Bars Ever


I cannot stop raving about ChocoPerfection chocolate bars

There's one word in the English dictionary that will make even the grumpiest person crack a smirk on their face -- CHOCOLATE! This delectable dark wonder food has been actually found to be good for you in recent studies.

But, unfortunately, most chocolate companies use sugar as their primary sweetener which can be detrimental to your health and waistline when you are overweight or obese. But never fear, there's a new company that not only offers a sugar-free, low-carb version of God's greatest food, but they actually make the chocolate taste so unbelievably good you will never know you are eating something that is HEALTHY for you!

It's called ChocoPerfection and these outstanding sugar-free, low-carb chocolate bars are the brainchild of a woman named Mary Jo Benson who started a business located in Coeur d' Alene, ID called LowCarb Specialties, Inc.

I actually came across these ChocoPerfection bars during my visit to Low-Carb Central in Milwaukee, Wisconsin this past weekend. Store owner Michael Kirtley asked me to try one to see what I thought. Since I am a BIG FAN of chocolate, I quickly obliged.

Upon reviewing the ingredients used in the ChocoPerfection bars, my elation grew even more. You see, most chocolates that are labeled "sugar-free, low-carb" have a really nasty sugar alcohol in them called maltitol which in many people causes World War III to take place inside their stomach! I wrote about this very poor sugar substitute in my book and urged chocolate candy companies to find better sugar alternatives that will not have that negative effect on people.

Mary Jo was listening...

Actually, she created the ChocoPerfection bars after she started her own low-carb diet program and found that most of the so-called "low-carb" chocolate bars on the market were sabotaging her weight loss. She found that the maltitol scored high on the glycemic index, her insulin levels spiked, her weight stalled her weight loss, and she was craving sugar more than ever.

Yikes! Mary Jo KNEW she had to do something to help people like herself enjoy a great-tasting sugar-free, maltitol-free, low-carb chocolate bar that tasted like real European gourmet chocolate, was entirely sugar-free so that diabetics could eat them, and would also contain probiotic fiber to help fight yeast infections.

It took 18 months of trial and error, but the resulting product was ChocoPerfection. Incredibly, Mary Jo lost an incredible 75 pounds by eating THREE of these chocolate bars per day! Did you hear that chocolate lovers? SHE ATE THREE CHOCOLATE BARS A DAY!!! Can you believe it?!

So what IS in ChocoPerfection that makes them taste so good? Here are the ingredients:

Chocolate liquor, oligofructose (fiber-based sweetener), erithrytol (sugar alcohol without the gastric distress), and cocoa butter.

That's it! The slogan "Sinful chocolate...without the sin" is an apt description of these ChocoPerfection bars.

They come in 2 oz packaging and are available in both milk chocolate and dark chocolate flavors. Packed with a whopping 16g of fiber (three times the amount contained in an apple!), 3g of protein, and just 3g of net carbs, ChocoPerfection truly is a healthy alternative to those "other" sugar-free, low-carb chocolates.

When I tried them for myself, I found that they are the best-tasting low-carb chocolate bars I have ever eaten and I don't say that lightly. They melt so wonderfully in your mouth and the flavor stays in your mouth long after you have finished the bar. That really stood out to me after eating a ChocoPerfection bar for the first time.

THANKS Mary Jo for providing people who are livin' la vida low-carb a creamy, delicious, and nutritious way to have our chocolate and eat it, too!

To order YOUR ChocoPerfection chocolate bars, just click here. Be sure to show Mary Jo your appreciation when you place your order. She has done a GREAT service for those of us who are on the low-carb lifestyle because EXCELLENT products are sometimes few and far between. But not these ChocoPerfection chocolate bars. They are VERY high-quality and worth every penny!

If you live in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area, then you can go get these bars at your local low-carb retailer there, Low-Carb Central. Be sure to tell Michael that Jimmy Moore sent you! :)

I ordered the dark bars from an e-store in Ontario. These bars are so expensive! But guess what, they're still worth it! They contain a lot of cacao butter which accounts for a truly luscious 'cream-ish' texture in the mouth. (The best chocolate contains chocolate fat.)

Amazing!
