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.

SweetRiot All Natural Dark Cacao Nibs

I love chocolate, but it's dangerously addictive. Whenever I buy a chocolate bar, I always find that, despite my best efforts, it's gone within a matter of hours (if not minutes)! For this reason, I generally don't buy chocolate bars too often. But why should I deprive myself of this delicious treat, especially with all the health benefits of antioxidant-rich dark chocolate? If you're like me, then you might want to check out SweetRiot All Natural Dark Cacao Nibs.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 tin (28 grams)

Price: $3.99/ tin

Each tin of SweetRiot chocolate is filled with "100% Dark Cacao Nibs Covered in Dark Chocolate." This all-natural treat is a perfect alternative to plain chocolate bars - it's fun to eat, comes in three fun flavors (flavor 50, flavor 65, and flavor 70, with increasing proportions of dark chocolate). In case you've never experienced the pleasure of eating a cocoa nib before, it's actually roasted cocoa beans with a really subtle chocolate taste and flavor - think a small, bitter piece of chocolate. Make them covered with chocolate, like SweetRiot did - and you'll have a little piece of heaven. While there is still a lot of saturated fat, as with other chocolate treats, I find that I'll eat less of these small baby nibs as a treat.
