When I was offered to review some chocolate I obviously said yes, we are huge sweet lovers in this house and probably consume more chocolate than we should. When Supertreats told me it was a healthy version of chocolate I did wonder whether that would ruin the taste. I was intrigued and also really wanted Lucas to try it as I don’t want him having too much rubbish. 

I was sent a box of the normal chocolate and a box of the merry berry chocolate. 

Supertreats review silky milky chocolate in blue wrapper and berry merry chocolate in pink wrapper on a wooden chopping board

 

I think it’s safe to say that we all know ordinary chocolate has high levels of refined sugar (up to 6 teaspoons per 50g bar) and the presence of stimulants (theobromine and caffeine). This causes blood sugar levels to shoot up. A dramatic burst of energy (the amount of times I have cursed for Lucas being high as a kite at bedtime!) is soon followed by an almighty energy crash, leading to temper-tantrums, poor concentration and often restless sleep.

Supertreats carob bars are made from 100% natural, organic ingredients and contain no refined sugar or stimulants. Theyโ€™re use a blend of carob, whole milk and cocoa butter, gently sweetened with coconut blossom nectar.

They can actually provide sustained, slow-release energy, which helps keep blood sugar levels stable and prevent the little ones from โ€˜bouncing off the wallsโ€™. They are rich in natural vitamins and minerals and contain more calcium per bar than in a 100ml glass of milk.

 

Supertreats review grainy photo of lucas eating chocolate bar

 

I apologise for the awful photos, before I knew it D and Lucas had demolished all the bars and this was the last chance to get a photo of Lucas so it’s a grainy selfie. 

We all loved the chocolate, I didn’t think we would be keen on the merry berry but that was our favourite. It had a subtle berry flavour, not at all overwhelming. The chocolate really was like normal milk chocolate. I thought there was a slight bitter aftertaste but that hasn’t put me off it. Lucas much preferred these chocolate bars to the usual chocolate that he has actually started leaving and D asked if I could buy some more. I’m really impressed and looking forward to seeing what other flavours they bring out. It is aimed at children but I don’t see why anybody couldn’t have this as part of a healthier lifestyle. So many people choose decaff tea and coffee now so it makes sense to carry that over to what chocolate you are eating.
