ChocolateBet: September 18, 2006

Chocolate of the Day:

Cocoa Via (Mars)
Chocolate Covered Almonds
Very Good +
Weight: 1 oz. (28.4 g.) in 1 package
Calories: 140 calories
Purchased from: Walgreen's (Sunnyvale or Santa Clara?, CA)

I searched the local Walgreen's drug/department store, and the local supermarket, looking for Cocoa Via chocolates. I had a coupon from a magazine. They are being marketed with some health benefits in mind (e.g. "Promotes a Healthy Heart"). I like this idea. It's another great justification to eat chocolate.

Cocoa Via chocolates are surprisingly good. This brand may or may not make it, as the company (Mars) is trying something that is sort of a hybrid marketing approach - or maybe they're trying to decide...Should they put these chocolates in the health/diet bar/granola bar section, or in with other high-end chocolates? I had a hard time finding them initially.

I'm trying the Cocoa Via chocolate-covered almonds first. They were very good. It looks like they have at least three other kinds that I can try that don't have wheat in them. (There's that pesky no-wheat/gluten requirement again. But, I digress....)
