SweetRiot UnBAR 70 Review

SweetRiot UnBar 70The SweetRiot unBAR 70 is declared the "unofficial bar of the world, having 70% dark chocolate with crunchy cacao 'peaces' and plump raisins." For $2.39, this was a pricey treat, although less expensive than the $3.99 SweetRiot All Natural Dark Cacao Nibs. I'm not the biggest fan of raisins and chocolate, but I wanted to give this a try anyway. After all, when it comes to chocolate, my motto is: the darker the better. I was especially excited for the crunchy cacao "peaces," so I unwrapped my chocolate right away (after buying it, of course).

The 1.34-ounce bar was divided into 4 squares, each of which was quite substantial. I popped one into my mouth and was greeted with a deliciously dark chocolate flavor, crunchy chocolate nibs, and plump raisins as they described. Surprisingly, I found the raisins to be a very nice touch! They weren't overpowering, but they lent a little extra sweetness and chewiness. I loved the overall combination of the ingredients.

Each SweetRiot UnBAR 70 clocks in at 180 calories, 14 grams of total fat (22% of the daily value), 8 grams of which is saturated (40% of the DV), and 11 grams of sugar. The ingredients are cacoa mass, sugar, cacoa powder, cacao nibs, cocoa butter, soy lecithin & natural flavor (source).

This is definitely a go for when you have a chocolate craving - not to eat on a regular basis of course, because the saturated fat content is astronomical (as with most brands of chocolates). Thankfully, there is built in portion control - since 1 package is a serving AND the price is quite high.
