ChocolateBet: December 12, 2006

Chocolate of the Day:

Adora/Thompson Brands
500 mg Calcium Supplement
Weight: 21 grams (estimate) for 1 package of 3 pieces
Calories: 90 calories for 3 pieces
Purchased from: Lawson (convenience store), Tokyo, Japan

As I've read more labels, and become aware of the sweetener levels and additives in some chocolates, I've been looking for health-oriented, or healthier, chocolates to try. I purchased this package of dark chocolate Adora calcium supplements (from Thompson Brands, of Meriden, CT), while traveling in Japan. Rubber-banding through time zones also makes me more vigilant about eating healthy, getting enough sleep, and getting enough vitamins and minerals, like calcium. So it made sense to me to combine chocolate + calcium.

These 500 mg calcium chocolates even had Vitamin D2 and Vitamin K1 in them as an added bonus. They were good, and only about 90 calories for all 3 disk-shaped pieces in the package -- according to the what's on the label. I feel so justified.
