My love for chocolate goes as far back as I can remember and while I’ve had no problem giving up unhealthy, processed and sugary foods, chocolate was going to be a problem. Most commercial chocolate is made from a compound -a solid block form made with a percentage of cocoa, vegetable fat, dairy, soy lecithin and lots of sugar or cane sugar. One small piece of most commercial chocolate sets off an addictive sugar cycle, making it difficult to have that daily recommended serving.
The reputation of chocolate as a junk food is more accurately attributed to commercial processing and commonly added cheap ingredients to yield the most profit. Soy lecithin, processed sugar, cane sugar and other preservatives while profitable, are not only unnecessary, but they overpower the delicious taste of the cocoa.
In 2013, my mission was to create a bar to show there’s a better way to enjoy chocolate without the guilt. I spent 6 months crafting the perfect balance of cocoa butter, cocoa powder, honey and vanilla. COCOFUEL was created -a clean chocolate made with only four organic ingredients and a small amount of honey. No soy, no preservatives, no junk, just real food!
A small amount of COCOFUEL leaves you satisfied and you can enjoy that recommended daily allowance of chocolate without setting off the addictive sugar cycle.
Even if you’re “addicted” to sugar you can reset your taste buds in a short time to enjoy all real foods.
“Americans now use 600 million pounds of flavorings every year,” he says. “We have made bland, high calorie food taste thrillingly delicious. And we can’t stop eating it. And to make matters worse, whole foods, like tomatoes, chickens and cucumbers, are getting blander and blander. In short, everything that’s gone wrong with food and our eating habits can be understood through flavor.” -Mark Schatzker. The Dorito Effect

This is quite tasty. -Alexander C.
This is quite tasty. But comparing to regular chocolate bars (the serious kind, not the over-sweetened stuff), there’s really a lot of cocoa butter here — much like chocolate truffle. I think now I understand why it’s named cocofuel. -Alexander C.
