Lotte O ZERO Non sugar chocolate


I found this new product as I was shopping for some snacks for a movie. The thing that really caught my eye is that this chocolate is fortified with fiber. ( One 50 gram box contains the same fiber found in 3 heads of lettuce) So I decided to give it a whirl and tossed it in my basket along with the cashews and almonds.


Taste

Wow, if Milk Chocolate is your thing than this is for you. The taste was rather sweet, and was similar to Swiss or Austrian chocolate rather than a Hershey wannabe. If I did not know better I would have thought that this chocolate contained sugar as there was no after taste. Texture wise again, very similar to a good Swiss Milk chocolate.


Sweeteners

hmmm... this is where we run into some problems. There is no Maltitol but the chocolate is sweetened with a cocktail of Lactitol, Aspartme, L-something and sucralose.


Verdict

Yes, I would buy this again on a special occasion. But due to the innovative use of sweeteners I think that this is something that I will eat every once in a blue moon even though it is a good source of fiber and wonderful tasting product.

LC,

You've inspired me to find an organic tamari sauce (wheat free). I also bought a 100% organic dark chocolate bar - no sweetener at all! It's going to be intense!
