Chocolite Chocolate Pecan Cluster

Author: Healthnuttxo

So far, I’d say I’m a fan of Chocolite Chocolates. Not only are they relatively low-calorie, but they are also quite tasty! My favorites have been the Caramel Cashew Protein Bar and the Peanut Butter Cup Patties.

Which are we reviewing today? Chocolite Chocolate Pecan Cluster! This package had 2 pieces in it, at 30 calories a piece. They also had six grams of fiber per piece, and 0 grams of sugar per piece.

I opened up the package and saw two chocolate covered clusters, roundish in shape with a somewhat bumpy texture. One of them I saw the caramel oozing out of the package, so I assume that one got a little smushed ūüėõ I liked that each cluster was a pretty decent size, maybe about a little bigger than a half-dollar in circumference, and quite thick in width as well.

I took a bite, and well, I couldn’t stop chewing! This seriously has SO much caramel! If you are a fan of caramel, I would highly reccommend these! I sort of wasn’t even expecting a ton of caramel, since it was called a “Chocolate Pecan Cluster”, although the picture does depict a good amount of caramel coming out of the cluster on the package. Other than the caramel, which actually was pretty good it was just rather chewy and had that stick-to-my-teeth feel, the chocolate part was very good. It had a smooth and sweet milk chocolate taste. I was a little disappointed on the pecan part, as although I do believe there were little bits and pieces of pecans throughout the cluster, it was lacking in pecan flavor- one of my favorite nuts!

Overall, I give this 3 stars. It was pretty good, and I liked that there were 0 grams of sugar per serving. However, I do like the flavor of caramel, but not so much the consistency. If it was a bit less chewy, perhaps I would have liked it more.

1 cluster is 30 calories, 2 grams of fat, 8 grams of carbohydrates, 6 grams of fiber, 0 grams of sugar and 1 gram of protein.

* I was sent this product to review for free from Chocolite/Health Smart Foods.

Chocolite Caramel Cashew Protein Bar

Author: Healthnuttxo

Health Smart Foods sent me some of the Chocolite products to try a little while ago, including the Caramel Cashew Protein Bar. I cannot even begin to tell you how happy I was when I first bit into this bar.

First off, the nutritional stats really rock. One bar has 10 grams of fiber, 115 calories, and only 1 gram of sugar.

But the taste is what won me over. The bar itself is dense and chewy, with a thick white coating on the outside, and visible bumps of cashews. The coating tastes like a mix of a buttery sweet white chocolate and a vanilla icing. Smooth and rich and delicious. It did not have an overpowering caramel flavor, which I liked, but was just enough to make it chewy and add a little sweetness. The cashew nuts are crunchy and tasty as well.

I literally was upset when this bar was over. So delicious, and I loved the thick white coating on the outside. It was VERY satisfying, for both my hunger pangs and my taste buds.¬†Amazing!¬†¬†5 stars !¬† ūüėÄ

1 bar is 115 calories, 6 grams of fat, 18 grams of carbohydrates, 10 grams of fiber, 1 gram of sugar and 9 grams of protein.

Chocolite Chocolate Candies

Author: Healthnuttxo

Time for a CHOCOLATE review!

Chocolite made by Health Smart Foods . 

The company sent me a few of their products to try, and then have quite the selection! I decided to feature the Peanut Butter Cup Patty (how could I not try that one?!), the Chocolate Pecan Cluster, and the Chocolate Coconut Almond candies.

Peanut Butter Cup Patty– WOAH. HOW IS THIS ONLY 40 CALORIES EACH? This is so, good! Each patty has a smooth layer of milk chocolate on top, and on the inside is peanut buttery bliss. Seriously- it’s so yummy. Slightly salty and a little crunchy, the inside is the best part!¬†¬†4 1/2 stars¬†

Chocolate Pecan Cluster- ooohhh, if you like caramel you will like these! A very strong caramel flavor, mixed with smooth and sweet milk chocolate. Very satisfying, gooey and soft. The caramel was VERY chewy and sticky, almost like taffy! However, I didn’t really taste any pecan flavor? Where was it, exactly? But other than that- a creamy treat for sure. I shared my pack with another,¬†and she was begging for more!¬†3 1/2¬†stars

Chocolate Coconut Almond- Very strong coconut flavor, with little flakes of coconut throughout the candy. Sweet milk chocolate on the outside. Again- no real almond flavor, per se, but so good. I’m not even a big fan of coconut, and this one’s a hit with me! 4 1/2 stars

Overall- I like these!
