I get extremely excited when I discover new nut free products, especially when they are chocolate based. I discovered ChocoSol Traders when I went to the Dufferin Grove farmers market to research for an article I was writing. I am also a sucker for pretty and skull based marketing so when I saw this chocolate it was a given I’d buy some.
As an added bonus the chocolate can come package-free and the wrapping is paper – so they are pretty green. Yes, I can feel ethical when eating chocolate!
The chocolate is definitely real and cacoa- based so if you want a something that tastes like an Aero bar you’ll be disappointed. But it will satisfy your sweet tooth and make a perfect (and cute) picnic addition (especially if you grab it from the farmers’ market then find your picnic spot). I hear they also make cookies and hot chocolate so I’ll visit the store to try those next.
