I love coffee — with a passion. But sometimes I need a quick pick-me-up (I’ve got three kids and three jobs) and I don’t have the time to grab that extra cup. When Awake Chocolate offered to send me some samples, I was intrigued. Could I skip my second (or let’s be honest, third or fourth cup) and just eat some delicious chocolate with added caffeine?
The answer is yes. Awake Chocolate comes in milk chocolate and chocolate caramel bars, as well as individually wrapped squares in milk chocolate and caramel.
I tried it yesterday and it was so good. I did feel alert after, like I’d had a cup of coffee and was able to easily power through the meeting I had.
Warning: Each full bar is equal to a cup of coffee, so I wouldn’t have more than one bar at a time. Plus, it’s still a chocolate bar, there is calories and fat. However, keeping a bar in your purse for those times when you are not going to remotely get near a fine java shop, might just be a smart idea (and a sweet treat).
This is not recommended for children and if you’re pregnant, please check with your doctor.
Thank you to Awake Chocolate for sending samples.
