Double Chocolate...Now That's More Like It!

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Very light, great source of vitamins and minerals, gives me energy, tastes great.

Cons:Still not as good as the chocolate mint

The Bottom Line: In the mood for a chocolaty snack that's actually good for you too? Give this a try!


Do you ever just get that urge for something really chocolaty but are afraid of all the calories you'll pack on after you eat it? Have no fear...Double Chocolate is here!

My Experience:

The particular bar comes in a brown wrapper and weighs 28g (.98 OZ). The bar itself is a dark chocolate which definitely a plus for me since I love dark chocolate.

I know I've said this before but it's nice to have a bar that actually tastes like chocolate and not some artificial coating that's made to resemble it.

There are no nuts in this particular bar and not even a nutty flavor. The chocolate is semi sweet and pairs really well with the rice in the bar.

Final Thoughts:

I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised with this bar. The chocolate was very fresh and the bar itself has a nice crunch. I can't believe I didn't discover these sooner. For 110 calories and 3 grams of fat(No transfats!)this a great snack packed with vitamins, minerals and gives me lots of energy which anybody with kids knows I could use all the energy I can get.
