I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend gorging themselves on sweets and dressed to the nines in silly costumes, perhaps even sharing some sexy time with a someone. I apologize for not posting anything to keep you distracted, but you were relaxing and unplugging anyway right?
By the way of sweets, I got a delightful package in the mail on Wednesday full of chocolate! The awesome ladies at Sweetriot sent me a sample pack* of their raw cacao nibs covered in different dark chocolates, and I am now hopelessly addicted!
They come in adorable tins each decorated with limited edition artwork and they even accept submissions if you want your scribbles adorning their flavors.
Of the three I’m currently consuming, flavors 50 (covered in 50% dark chocolate), 65, and 70, my favorite is 70. The nibs are covered in 70% dark chocolate with espresso, so it’s the perfect sweet and tart combination for an afternoon pick-me-up.
The best thing about them though, is that each nib is 1 to 2 calories. An entire tin is only 140 calories, or 1 point for the Weight Watchers inclined like me. That’s equal to half a slice of bread! They are packed with anti-oxidants, are all-natural, and fair trade. It’s a no guilt-treat in every respect, and can I say again how delicious they are? Christmas is getting closer, so if anyone wants to send me some more to stock up on . . .
