Coco Polo 70% Dark Chocolate 2.5oz bar
Quantity in Basket:
High up in the Austrian Alps, in the pure meadows far from fertilizers, pesticides and polluted air we find the perfect environment for growing our Elderberry. When mixed with our sensational Stevia sweetened dark chocolate you get a hint of Blueberries, a massive dose of antioxidants and a very satisfying chocolate experience.
The product: Stevia Sweetened, No Sugar Added, 70% Cocoa, Dark Chocolate Bar with Elderberry but the challenge is to tell you about elderberry and why we have chosen to combine elderberries with our delicious Dark Chocolate.
Many people may not have a taste reference for elderberries.
A easy comparison is blueberries: not the usual commercial product but rather magnificent high-bush blueberries, small with vital flavor.
The elderberry taste in our bar is similar, but in fact is even more flavorful, which when combined with our 70% Cocoa Dark Chocolate Sweetened with Stevia yields a wonderful balance: tart round berry taste with mouth-filling chocolate, incredibly satisfying.
The combination brings additional health benefits to this bar: As always we emphasize both taste and health.
The elderberry has nearly five times the level of anthocyanins (natural antioxidants) of the blueberry! and that it has twice the overall antioxidant capability of the cranberry! The elderberry may not be well-known but its health effects have been thoroughly investigated and documented!
Comparative antioxidant levels of fruit are discussed here (elderberry is a star!) and detailed references to the health benefits of elderberries are here.
Each bar contains more than 500 milligrams of elderberries.
The antioxidant level (ORAC) of the elderberries we use has been verified by Brunswick Labs, an independent testing laboratory.

1.Our Reb A sweetener is a pure extract of the Stevia plant and is Non-GMO.
2.Our Erythritol is a naturally fermented, fully absorbed, zero glycemic, non-insulin raising sweetener sourced from Non-GMO corn. (Not all Erythritol is Non-GMO). Since it is fully absorbed, it does not cause digestive problems as with other polyols, Maltitol, Xylitol and Sorbitol. In addition, since it is not very sweet and we also do not use it in sufficient quantity for it to lend an adequate sweetness to the chocolate, Stevia is used to give the chocolate its sweetness.
3.No Laxating or Digestive problems as with all previous sugar free chocolates. No Sugar problem reactions.
4.Non-GMO, Gluten Free and All Natural
5.Our Inulin is a prebiotic from chicory
6.Almost all fiber in the chocolate bars is derived from the high levels of cocoa mass (chocolate liquor) and Inulin.
7.All bars are properly labeled according to FDA approved standards.
