With Halloween and the holidays approaching, many people will be dipping into the chocolate.

But what if you can’t join them because you’re avoiding sugar? How can you get a great chocolate fix?

Get ChocZero—lots of it! Sweetened with a relatively new noncaloric sweetener, monk fruit (see below), it tastes like a premium-quality chocolate bar.

According to the company, it’s the #1 selling chocolate on Amazon and there’s a reason why. This chocolate may be sugar-free, but it tastes like the real deal.

ChocZero was created for people who follow a ketogenic “keto” diet: a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet. But you don’t have to be on that food plan to enjoy this chocolate. Everyone who wants to eliminate sugar can jump in.

Monk fruit is a zero-calorie natural sweetener made from melon that’s relatively new on the American sugar-substitute scene.

There’s no aftertaste, no digestive upset as with maltitol, a sugar alcohol that creates delicious sugar-free chocolate, but can cause digestive upset.

The line uses ethically-sourced cacao beans from South America, and Madagascar vanilla beans. The line is gluten free, GMO-free, soy free, and sugar alcohol-free company.
 
 
CHOCZERO KETO BARK (CHOCOLATE BAR) & CHOCOLATE SQUARE FLAVORS

The chocolate bars (photo #1) are stone-ground, meaning that the cacao beans are unrefined. This minimal processing lets the bold flavors of the chocolate shine through.

The bars are called bark—keto bark, to be precise—because they have inclusions.

The 1-ounce bars, 120 calories (a standard bar is 155 calories), are sold in boxes of six.

  • Dark Chocolate Coconut Bark
  • Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Bark
  • Dark Chocolate Peanut Bark
  • Milk Chocolate Almond Bark
  • Milk Chocolate Coconut Bark
  • Milk Chocolate Hazelnut Bark
  •  
    Don’t want inclusions? There are individual squares of chocolate, just right for a guilt-free snack or with a cup of coffee, in:

  • 50% Dark Chocolate Squares
  • 70% Dark Chocolate Squares
  • 85% Dark Chocolate Squares
  • 92% Dark Chocolate Squares
  • Milk Chocolate Squares
  •  
    Currently sold out are Chocolate Dipping Cups. Think of them as single-serve portions that you microwave, and can then use as hot chocolate sauce, a fruit dip, or, mixed with milk, hot chocolate.

    WHAT IS MONK FRUIT?

    Monk fruit is a natural sweetener made from the extract of a small Asian melon, lo han kuo (also spelled lo han guo and luo han kuo, botanical name Siraitia grosvenorii).

    The sweetener has been used in China and Southeast Asia for generations.

    A low glycemic index makes it appropriate for diabetics. Monk fruit is 200 to 250 times as sweet as table sugar, so a tiny amount is used. It is very stable under high temperature and thus suitable for cooking and baking. It is currently labeled a dietary supplement by the FDA.
