The healthy chocolate you have to try!
What's that? Superfood chocolate? Yes siree! This Leicestershire-based chocolate brand is bursting with mega tasty ingredients and added health benefits! Even Elton John is a fan! So long Cadburys and hello Simsante.
You don’t believe me do you but I’m telling the truth! It’s all thanks to nutritionist Simrin Singh who, when faced with trying to find tasty, guilt-free chocolate ended up coming short. So she decided to do something about it and, oh mi god – you’ll thank her for it once you’ve tasted the chocolate.
Now, I’m not normally one to go down the dark chocolate route, but during my time writing at Food and Travel magazine, we’d literally gorge on goodies. It was all in the name of work (of course) but that’s when I discovered how good dark chocolate can really be, but Simsanté takes it to another level.
Drawing on her Indian heritage, Simrin has used her knowledge of herbs, spices and ayurveda to masterfully combine the best tasting organic chocolate with natural, plant-based ingredients to create sophisticated flavours of choc bars bursting with goodness and superfoods that are known to have gut health benefits.
She sent me a taster box which slipped neatly through my letterbox and inside were four perfectly-sized bars – not too big and more importantly, not too small. The timing couldn’t have been better either, as I’m trying to wean myself off the nasty store-bought stuff that’s not good for me or my bulging belly (eeeek!)
Simsanté’s handcrafted, organic chocolate combine nutty protein punches, jaggery sweetness, seed popping crunchiness, natural essential oils, gut strengthening spices as well as 85% organic dark chocolate rich in flavanoids and other antioxidants. People, this really is the most healthiest bar on the market and it doesn’t sacrifice on flavour either!
It’s smooth, crunchy, flavoursome – not bitter at all I might add – and alas, was gone wayyy too soon! It was truly some of the best stuff I’ve tried so whoever thinks that that stuffing your face with chocolate couldn’t be healthy – think again! One thing is for sure, this won’t be the last time Simsanté chocolate comes through my letterbox! Oh, and for those of you who turn your nose up at dark chocolate firstly, stop (!) and secondly, try their Milky Magic Collection.
Because the brand is pure and natural, think of it less as a treat and more of a tasty, guilt-free indulgence and it’s already making its mark; it was the ‘chocolate of choice’ at a recent celeb-filled charity gig over at Chewton Glen, organised and headlined by Sir Elton John himself. How cool is that? It’s also being featured in Hello Magazine and at Chelsea Flower Show.
Prices start from: £9.49 for a four bar Taster Box, £26.99 for a 12 bar Indulgence Box. You can also subscribe and save 15% and get your favourite flavours directly through your letterbox weekly or monthly.
