Organic Traditions Dark Chocolate Golden Berries

organictradtionschocolateWhat came to mind before trying the Organic Traditions Dark Chocolate Golden Berries is the thought of the traditional milk chocolate covered raisins growing up that I used to never eat. In fact, those were one of the first chocolates I would quickly trade away when it came to the Halloween chocolate stash I had worked hard to gather. However, because I am a fan of dark chocolate, and have grown to enjoy the combination of dried fruits in trail mix, along with chocolate chips, I was interested in this treat.

What sets these dark chocolate golden berries apart is that it’s actually dairy-free, gluten-free, and sodium-free – all of which make it that much worth while to munch on. Plus, it’s chocolate! It’s a great fusion of healthy and indulgence, without the guilty feeling of oh-did-I-really-eat-too-much-chocolate aftermath.

The tart, citrus golden berries pair nicely with 80% dark chocolate. It is naturally sweetened with low-glycemic yocon sugar. And to be honest, I really have no idea what that is, but it makes it sound better than the typical convention sugar that I would be used to having. There’s this nice tartness to the golden berries that matches the dark chocolate very well – a great way to satisfy that chocolate craving that happens ever so often.
