Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and Coconut Theme Week.
Today's "Double Chocolate" chocolate dipped collagen (bar) that contained MCT (coconut) oil was from Bulletproof 360, Inc. (Seattle, WA).
This "keto friendly" bar contained 7 grams of protein and only 1 gram of sugar.
Aroma notes included: chocolate (sweet cocoa, with a faint trace of green/botanical (vanilla, oxalic acid, sweet green nut)).
A creamy chocolate-y outer layer surrounded a denser, chewy-almost crunchy core filling.
Flavor notes included chocolate...double chocolate, as there was chocolate-y flavor in both layers. This bar did contain coconut oil as part of an MCT blend; but there was no real detectable coconut flavor from this highly refined coconut oil. The cashew butter (#1 ingredient) added extra protein and a very mild, naturally sweet nut flavor.
This bar was not too sweet (thank you!). The stevia sweetener used didn't have an artificial taste and supplied just the right amount of sweetness to this bar.
Ingredients: Cashew butter, chocolate coating (unsweetened chocolate, inulin, erythritol, cocoa butter, vanilla extract, stevia leaf extract), inulin, hydrolyzed collagen, MCT oil powder (caprylic and capric acid triglycerides from highly refined coconut oil, tapioca dextrin), cocoa processed with alkali. Less than 2% of: safflower or sunflower oil, sunflower lecithin, sea salt, organic stevia leaf extract, natural flavors, vanilla extract.
