A CHOCOLATE Giveaway! Enter right here to win an Active D’Lites Chocolate Sampler Prize Pack!
I eat chocolate EVERY day. It’s my weakness. So when I was offered a free sampler pack to review of Active D’Lites Chocolate with Probiotics, I thought “Hooray! A healthful way to justify my daily chocolate fix!”
I know probiotics are important for good digestive health, but I haven’t heard of many good ways to get them in food other than in yogurt, so hearing about chocolate that has probiotics (why not?) definitely appealed to me and I was anxious to try some.
Here are some quick facts about Active D’Lites:
Active D’Lites Chocolate Bars and Daily Bites offer the benefits of both probiotics and prebiotics in the most delicious delivery system—chocolate.
Active D’Lites contain premium probiotics and prebiotics which are stable, clinically-documented, and demonstrate proven efficacy in strengthening gut health and boosting immunity.
All Active D’Lites products are also non-GMO, low carb and have no sugar added (they are sweetened with stevia).
Active D’Lites Daily Bites are 50 calories each, contain 20 billion probiotics and have 3g of total fiber.
Active D’Lites Bars are 100 calories each, contain 10 billion probiotics and have 7 to 9g of total fiber.
I received several of the Bars and Daily Bites to try. I wondered if they would be as good as other indulgent, “full-of-fat-and-sugar-because-it-tastes-good” chocolate.
I first tried the Active D’Lites Daily Bites, because that’s what I’d most likely buy for my daily chocolate fix, and they were actually very good! The chocolate truffle definitely had a yummy and sweet truffle flavor and texture, the Coconut had just the right hint of coconut flavor, but because I’m a huge mint-and-chocolate fan, I think I liked the Mint Truffle flavor best. It was not a strong mint flavor but just enough to be a cooling and satisfying blend of mint and chocolate. Mmmm… My only problem with them is that I wanted to eat them all at once!
The Active D’Lites Bars are just-right sized candy bars for when you’ve gotta have more than a couple bites of chocolate. I tried the Caramel, Almond, and Cranberry Almond varieties. I thought they were all great – eating them I couldn’t tell that any were actually “good-for-you.” My co-worker Linda shared a Caramel Bar with me – we thought it could have used more caramel – it was more chocolate than caramel, though it was still satisfying. The Almond and Cranberry Almond had very small bits of almonds but tasted as good as any other chocolate with almond candy bar. The cranberry almond candy bar was a flavor combination I’d never had before but would definitely eat again – it was both mildly fruity and nutty.
There’s a lot of information about the probiotics and prebiotics in Active D’Lites, as well as their effectiveness, on the Active D’Lites website. The research is extensive and the benefits of the probiotics and prebiotics in this chocolate is proven:
“In a randomized, triple-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study, a group of volunteers subject to gut stress received a daily dose of HOWARU® Probiotics. Beneficial bacteria were quickly restored to pre-stress levels and the entire gut microflora returned more rapidly to normal.”
