Superfood. Chocolate. Gah. What’s not to love?! When I saw this ad in my newsfeed, I knew I had to try it out.
A little background: Aloha is a company with a gorgeous website and some really interesting products. They sell vitamins/nutrients in pill form, powdered greens (in single serve packets – convenient!), superfood chocolate, and sometimes protein powder, though I don’t see it listed on the site right now. All vegan, organic, gluten-free, soy-free, and non-GMO.
I’ve been seeing tons of ads for their powdered greens in my Facebook newsfeed, but then one day I saw an ad for their superfood chocolate. Gah. It was a promotion for a free bar, I just had to pay $2something in shipping.
I ordered without doing any research, because that’s what I do. But after I did my research, I was pretty pleased! I mean, look at these ingredients.
Hard to beat! More details here if you’re interested. Aloha also claims their chocolate has 10x more antioxidants than goji berries. I don’t eat my chocolate for antioxidants but whatever. I’ll take what I can get.
Shipping was fast, and the package actually arrived before I even got a shipment notification. But this tiny bar comes in a huge box. Seems a little wasteful to me.
The taste? To me, it’s fruity and mildly chocolatey. It tastes more like milk chocolate than I was expecting, and the taste of the raw cacao nibs really shines through. If you’ve ever had them, you know what I mean by “fruity.” The bar tastes fresh and bright. It may not satisfy your biggest chocolate cravings, but it will definitely kill a sweet tooth.
John tried a bite and said, “That is the worst thing I’ve ever tasted,” but don’t listen to him. He has terrible tastes and calls himself a chocolate lover but only eats Hershey’s. Expand your horizons a little! Jeeze.
It doesn’t melt in your mouth like regular chocolate, but you will not be getting any Mockolate flashbacks. This will not be you:
(We work Friends gifs in wherever we can around here.)
My verdict: It’s good! It’s $9 a bar, so I won’t be buying it again, unfortunately. I eat way too much chocolate to spend that much on 2.2 ounces of chocolate. If I could pick this up for $3 at Whole Foods, I’d definitely repurchase.
However, if you’d like to try it and don’t want to shell out the $$$, check out Aloha’s free trial program. But it’s a subscription program, so make sure you cancel if you don’t want to get charged after the first 14 days.
Have you tried any of Aloha’s products? xo Sara
