***GIVEAWAY CLOSED***

Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate!!! That is what this next review is all about!! Are you excited yet?

Well, I received my sample in the mail the other day from Xocai and wish I had MORE! It's SO GOOD!!!
You probably would not believe that it is healthy chocolate though by the taste...yep...I said healthy chocolate. Xocai is pronounced "sho-sigh", which is translated into "A Gift of Health".

This company is the world leader for healthy chocolate and by the taste of it, it's no wonder! So, what is so great about Xocai? Unprocessed cacao has also been clinically proven to do these things...

Those are really great reasons to eat this chocolate!

I was sent a piece of the Xocai X Power Squares and a Xocai Nugget. When I first bit into the chocolate, I was waiting for the bitter flavor. You know how usually, the darker the chocolate, the bitter it is? Well, Xocai chocolae is very dark but the taste suprised me alot. The flavor was sweet, and pleasant....not what I was expecting! Also, there is something to be said about the texture as well. It was smooth, creamy and silky...wow. Something that you do not get unless the chocolate is milky. Thats another thing...on to the ingredients. There isn't any milk in this chocolate. Also, there are no bad fats, no fillers, no preservatives, no refined sugars, no trans fats and no waxes! Is that great or is that great??? Here's more...

"Xoçai™ Nuggets are extremely high in cocoa content, combining the exotic flavors of dark chocolate with açai berry and blueberry. Each 12-gram Xoçai™ Nugget is made with rich, dark, Belgian Chocolate and has an ORAC Value (or antioxidant content) of 3,120. The USDA recommends at least 3,000-5,000 per day. Ingredients: Dark Chocolate [Unsweetened Chocolate, Raw Cane Juice Crystals, Cocoa, Lecithin (emulsifier)] Açaí Powder, Blueberry Powder."

Sounds great, doesn't it? Here is a little more about why Xocai is so wonderful, compared to "normal" chocolate...

Comparing Xoçai™ to store-bought chocolate Store-Bought Brands"Store-bought chocolate is typically high in refined (white) sugar, milk fats, and hydrogenated oils—ingredients that replace the truly healthful nutrients found in cocoa.

Further, most store-bought chocolate use a process method called “Dutching,” which adds alkali-potash to the cocoa before roasting. While this process makes processing cocoa less expensive, this alkalinization process removes most of the chocolate’s antioxidant benefits. Another process commonly used by store-bought brands is roasting; when chocolate is prepared above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, most of its antioxidant compounds are destroyed. Xoçai™ Healthy Chocolate
Xoçai™ products contain all natural, unprocessed cold pressed chocolate. Being unprocessed, it holds 100% of its antioxidant and nutritional value. With Xoçai™. Healthy Chocolate products, you get ALL the antioxidant power of dark chocolate without the fat, preservatives, fillers and high sugar like you do in other chocolate.

Our delicious chocolate products have been created to provide maximum antioxidant benefits, while minimizing the negatives usually associated with chocolate, that is, too much fat and too much sugar. We also use low glycemic sweeteners in our products."

So...are you convinced yet? My husband is a dark chocolate fan... and he loves dark chocolate more than I do. So, I ate half a piece and gave him the rest and he loved it! I told him it was healthy and good for him too and he STILL liked it! :)
In my opinion, (and my husband's!) Xocai Chocolate is truly what it claims to be...a gift of health!
