Start with Cacao Nibs & Cover them in Dark Chocolate: a Taste of the Good Stuff as It Was Meant to Be Savored from Sweetriot FASHIONTRIBES GIFT BLOG

Unlike the overly processed & molded bars of chocolate available commercially today, the cacao that was discovered in the 1500s shares a magical, spiritual heritage in countries in South & Central America, West Africa & Asia. While traveling, Sarah Endline stumbled upon cacao, and wanted to share it with others. She recently launched Sweetriot which offers three flavors of cacao "Peaces":

  1. flavor 50 cacao nibs covered in 50% dark chocolate - just the right amount to tempt milk chocolate fans
  2. flavor 65 covered in 65% chocolate for true chocoholics
  3. flavor 70 70% dark chocolate with a hint of espresso for coffee enthusiasts

And unlike diet-derailing chocolate bars, each tin is only 140 calories - so even if you indulge in the entire thing, the damage is less than extensive. "These are great if you don't want a giant chocolate bar, but you still need a fix," explains Endline. "They are natural and pure...and they encourage people to learn about the real origins of chocolate. Once it's processed, it loses the purity of the bean, as well as nutrition and antioxidants."
