I love chocolate and recently found some that actually isn’t all that bad for you. Lily’s Sweet offers some great sweetened premium dark chocolate has the indulgence you crave but with 25% fewer calories than other 55% dark chocolates. There are a number of things I like about Lily’s Sweet ~ first they use only Fair Trade certified chocolates, second they use stevia to sweeten the chocolate.
Stevia is a natural, botanical sweetener that comes from the plant Stevia rebaudiana. Also known as sweet leaf, stevia is 200 to 300 times sweeter than sugar with none of the unhealthy characteristics. Stevia has a very low glycemic index and is safe for diabetics. Stevia has virtually no calories and has been used to sweeten food and beverages around the world for decades.
Whether you are craving some smooth dark chocolate or a crunchy bite Lily’s Sweet has you covered. Lily’s Dark Chocolate bars come in 4 great flavors Original, Coconut, Crispy Rice, and Almond. My favorite I think was the one with the almonds or was it the crispy rice. They all were great and what a great way to satisfy a craving and not feel guilty about it.
Lily’s is named after one of the founders’ niece. When she was 7 years old she was diagnosed with brain cancer. She survived but she was sad that the hospital didn’t have enough wheelchairs for all the children so she along with her family raised $9000 to buy an additional electric wheel chair. To honor Lily they made her their namesake, and pledged a percentage of their profits to provide kids with cancer services they need.
