By Nancy Johnson Horn, Editor —
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?
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.
