Apparently, she eats a square of Xoçai every day, as it’s high in antioxidants and vitamins. I’m intrigued. I’ve never heard of it so looked it up online when I got home.
According to the company’s website Xoçai (pronounced Sho-sigh) is a dark chocolate made from natural, unprocessed cocoa. It contains açai berries, a South American fruit that is high in antioxidants. These are substances, which help protect our cells from damage caused by free radicals. It is also low in fat and sugar so is suitable for diabetics, and contains no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
Studies have shown that dark chocolate is good for us. It contains flavenoids – chemicals that help reduce cholesterol levels, boost immunity, and helps protect the heart and arteries from damage.
So far, so yummy. But does it taste nice? I’ll report back as soon as I’ve scoffed some! My two year old daughter, Julieta, is a chocoholic so we’ll see if it passes the taste test. If you’ve tried it let me know what you think.
