I have no self-control when it comes to chocolate (chocolate bars, chocolate cake, chocolate mousse, chocolate ice cream, even if you put a piece of chocolate sheet cake in front of me I’d eat it up with such love you’d think it was a Francois Payard masterpiece!). Needless to say I have my moments of food guilt, so I’ll pay attention to anything that promises to let me indulge without it (a major reason I’m a huge fan of raw desserts and Arctic Zero). A recent health food store discovery, CocoXan is a notable find. Not only do the truffles come in 3-packs (about $5) making it “easy” to exercise portion control, the dark chocolate truffles stand-out from my regular Neuhaus faves because they’re hand-made with healthful nutrients,
including CoQ10 and DHA, and they’re also all-natural and gluten-free. The line includes CocoWell, CocoBrain, CocoHeart, CocoPreggers, and CocoPMS. Jump for more on each of them!
The chocolate names are pretty self-explanatory and come in fun little boxes.
The PMS one, for example, says “3 Dark Chocolate Berry Truffles with
Chasteberry and Bilberry to Un-Bitch Yourself.” To learn more about each flavor see below!
