The "sugar-free chocolate" section in sweet shops, or grocery stores, can be a bit off-putting. However, there is no need to fear stevia-sweetened chocolate bars from Coco Polo (Highland Park, NJ).

The company is using quality ingredients and an aftertaste-free stevia formulation (with Reb A, an FDA-approved stevia extract) for its line of bars. This may be the new gold standard for sugar-free chocolate.

I obtained today's small sample size 70% dark chocolate bar with cocoa nibs at an industry show earlier this year. Full-size 3-oz. bars are available in stores, or online. (See image of the (larger) full-size bar from Coco Polo's website, at right.)
