I don't know what it is, but lately, I just love chocolate. I really didn't get cravings for chocolate, or really felt like I "need" chocolate. Things have changed. I admit, I love and crave chocolate. I think Family Review Network knew I was craving chocolates, because I was asked and selected to review for the company Celebrate Life Nutrition! I was sent some wonderful chocolate samples that were going to work for my good! I was sent 2 boxes of truffles to sample, and these truffles are made with the intent to satisfy and control my hunger! First of all, I love the taste of the Celebrate Chocolates! I had a variety pack that had 3 pieces of chocolate in it~ three different flavors, called the Celebrate Truffle Creations. I loved the design/look on the chocolates. There was a Cherry, Almond, and Raspberry chocolate. I think my favorite was the Raspberry. My kids tasted the chocolates, and loved the taste, too. My son said they had a weird after taste, but I didn't think so.
The other box of chocolates I got to review was the Celebrate Truffle Classics: which had 3 pieces of dark (73% cocoa) and light chocolate (62% cocoa). I am not usually a dark chocolate fan, but the dark chocolates from Celebrate Nutrition is really good. I love that the company uses natural products, and that I can read and understand the ingredients. No chemicals. Celebrate Nutrition uses a rare cocoa: Criollo cocoa. Along with the cocoa, they use a special blend of natural plant oils - Avocado, Macadamia nut, and Hemp seed oils.
Controlling your appetite can be a challenge, but Celebrate Nutrition offers a solution to controlling your hunger by eating a couple of pieces 15-20 minutes before meals, or when you feel hungry. I tried this out, and it seems to work pretty good. I am not sure if it is because I am eating a yummy chocolate, or if it is because the chocolate is somewhat filling. I didn't feel extremely hungry when we were sitting down to eat.
Either way, it was a great option to have a treat before a meal.
Celebrate Nutrition Chocolates are to savor, taste, think about, share (OK, maybe not share) but definitely enjoy! Speaking of sharing...
