"I’m currently loving these Dark Chocolate Coconut Clusters from Alter Eco because not only are they delicious, but they combine the superfood power of 70 percent dark chocolate and coconut into one and only contain a mere 5 to 6 grams of sugar per serving. It’s an enlightened snack that’s perfect whether you’re searching for a sweet afternoon bite or after-dinner treat." -Kelly Springer, RD and founder of Kelly’s Choice Nutritional Company
Salty-sweet toasted coconut flakes (sustainably harvested) and dried cherries are embedded in 70 percent fair-trade Ecuadorian chocolate. You can practically snack on these clusters like chips, because it only contains five grams of sugar per serving. And yet, these chocolatey snacks will quell any sweet cravings.
These delicious bittersweet Alter Eco Organic Chocolate bars are certified fair trade, and contain and light, floral, toffee taste that we all crave when searching for a slightly sweet snack. 85% cocoa from Ecuador, and exclusively harvested there, this chocolate creates the best intensity. Their flavors include cherry, coffee, caramel, brown butter, and quinoa. It’s everything you’d ever want in a vegan chocolate bar!
“After a raft of negative reports on labor conditions in cocoa production, Mars, Hershey and other large chocolate makers have committed to bring their practices more into line with Alter Eco’s.”
“The sublime flavors in Alter Eco’s latest bars have also been shown to improve your outlook on life – at least according to our unofficial office research. The Salted Almonds bar is as rich and deeply nutty as you’d hope; Salt & Malt offers a toasty, crispy taste of nostalgia; and Super Blackout is an intense but not-too-bitter bar for cocoa heads. Even better: The organic, fair-trade brand sources from small-scale, farmer-owned cooperatives.”
Our dietitians were on the lookout for a dark chocolate bar that's at least 65% cacao, made without any hydrogenated oils or trans fats. This 70% cacao bar fit the bill, and we love that a sprinkle of sea salt (fleur de sel de Guérande, to be exact) brings out its natural sweetness. We also love that this chocolate bar is made with 100% fair trade-certified ingredients.
