Did you know each heavenly bar is chock full of healthy goodness too?!

  • Dark chocolate is full of antioxidants that keep your body free of disease and slow the signs of aging.
  • Dark chocolate and agave have a very low glycemic index which means they won’t spike your blood sugar like many other sugary sweets.  Choose a dark chocolate that has a cocoa content of 70% or higher.
  • Coconut is not only tasty, it can help boost energy and beat stress!
  • Coconut oil is a healthy fat! It can improve heart health and increase metabolism. Plus, if you have some left over after cooking, it’s great topically for your hair and skin too!
  • Almonds are full of healthy essential fatty acids that make your hair and skin shine!
