The other day I came home to a box of Benchic Chocolates at my store step and was totally delighted to discover homemade, raw, organic, and vegan chocolate squares. These silky smooth and almost fudge-like chocolates are made with only six simple ingredients: cacao, honey, lucuma, Himalayan sea salt, goji berries, and almonds. Nearly all of these items benefit your body with properties like flavanols, minerals, vitamins, fiber, and protein. If there’s such thing as sin-free chocolates, these are they!
For those who don’t like honey, the distinct flavor can be detected in these sweets, albeit, subtly thanks to the strong, rich cacao flavor. My book club went gaga for these treats and especially enjoyed them with red wine. If I were to rate these chocolates at large, I’d give them 3.5 cherries, but for the “healthy” world, I’d give them 5 enthusiastic cherries.. averaging about a score of 4 cherries overall!
