Ah, chocolate. Must be the THC in it that we're addicted to.

Carob is wonderful all by itself. I love carob.  My little son, really likes carob. I gave him some one time at the health food store and it was love at first taste.

I checked the amount of carbs in agave!    I think I'm better off using honey.

Re: carbs in agave.  Yes, but from what I've read it's got a low glycemic index.  Honey is straight "sugar."  (I use the term sugar there loosely.)  Honey is like a shot of sugar, albeit not cane.  Agave, according to the bottle, is low glycemic, so it doesn't do to your pancreas what honey and other "sugars" do.  Evidentally.

I think you are right because Dr. D. chose to use agave in the Unibars, which says a lot to me.  I think he even has an "Ask Dr. D." floating around here that discusses agave nectar and that it doesn't spike-n-crash blood sugar like many other sweeteners.

Honey is really good for you. Contrary to some low carb docs popular opinions, honey contains enzymes, trace minerals and other substances yet to be determined that actually improve your health.  I'm supposed to have "severe" ragweed allergy. I don't even sneeze or sniffle in the fall because I've been eating honey all my life. Either raw or locally grown is best.
It's great for sore throats, coughs, and indigestion and heals second and third degree burns and is used when antibiotics won't work on open wounds..

I sure would like to order some products from this site but it seems anyone from the U.s. cannot do it online.  So I've emailed them.  I'll post any info. I get about it.

thank you so much for the site.

Honey is neutral for A nonnies so either way she'd still get to keep her honey  

I was just looking at the Sunfood link ShariBerry posted and was a little shocked at the prices. $12.00 for a 2.25oz bar of chocolate is a little much  
Chocolate is a black dot for me anyway so I shouldn't even be looking  
I'll just be happy with my carob

I just ran across what could be an answer to the chocolate without sugar on the US Wellness Meat website that we in Crossville buy our grass fed meat from. This is a dark chocolate made with agave. The link is http://www.grasslandbeef.com/Categories.bok?category=Organic+Snack+Foods%3AHealthy+Chocolate You may have to copy and paste but I think it is worth a look see. Hope it helps.

Here's the ingredients.  For some of us, it might contain some avoids...but it looks great~

INGREDIENTS: organic dates, organic agave syrup, organic raw cacao nibs, organic raw cacao powder, organic raw pistachios, organic pecans, organic raw cashews, organic vanilla beans, organic coconut oil, organic cinnamon (all ingredients are raw and certified organic)

Yes there are some ingredients that are avoids for some of us. I can have the coconut but am not supposed to have the cashews. Hopefully there isn't a lot in there. I will let you know when I recieve the 2 bars on May 1 when the meat order comes in if they are any good or not. Krogers grocery store has some semi-sweet choc chips that is their brand that has a little sugar in it but no dairy which some of us use. You have to watch the labels though. Depending where they are produced the ingredients change sometimes. The food co-op that I belong to also has a OG dark choc bar that is got compliant ingredients. I will check the list and let you know later.

OK here is the information on the Endangered Species Chocolate bar. It is the Dark Chocolate with almonds and cranberries.

"Belgian dark chocolate (chocolate, unbleached water-filtered beet sugar, cocoa butter, soy lecithin), organic almonds and dried cranberries."


I have seen this same brand in the grocery stores that sell natural products like the big Kroger stores and at some health food stores.

I like the NAP bars.  Both of them.  That's all I have to say.  I do indulge in a small portion of "Cool Hand Lukes" bars.  The ingredients aren't totally bad.  Seems to have less of avoids in it than most.  In fact, I'm not even sure any of it is avoid for me.  I need to look up soy lecithin.

Hi Peppermint Twist,

I have a recipe for 'Chocolate Soup' as I am a total chocoholic.  Loving the fact I can have it now...as an O it was simply neutral.  I buy at the grocery store the unsweetened bar of chocolate from Germany.  Most grocers carry it, it's in a green box.

This recipe is not "precise" measurements.....it's to your taste.

Put a few cubes of chocolate in a small dish (like a ramekin dish)
Add just a little bit of Olive Oil (the lightest you can find)  Or if you are brave.....Flax Oil.  Either will do.
Agave Nectar to taste  
Add a few pats of butter or ghee (your preference)
A teaspoon to tablespoon of almond butter (your preference)
A teaspoon of rice milk or soy milk

Microwave in 20 second increments at a time, stirring in between.  Keep an eye on it, as it can boil over.  Eat with a spoon.  This is a cheap and simple, yet Gatherer "friendly" way to get that beneficial chocolate into your diet.  You can forego the almond butter if you like, it just gives it that "Reese Cup" flavor.

Hope this helps,
Carolinagirl-Gatherer

Yes *sigh* chocolate soup doesn't do it much justice does it?

How about "Liquid Heaven?"

Actually, this is the much smaller version of a base to a stove-top cookie I make called, "Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies".  Some people call them "Cow Patties".  The base calls for 2 cups of sugar and since it's stove-top over heat.....I don't see how it could be properly converted to be user 'friendly' with the Genotype Diet unless beet sugar could be used or something.  But you spoon them out and they harden.  All the ingredients are Gatherer friendly (or could be made so) but I can't work around the sugar factor.  Any suggestions would be great......b/c the way they harden at room temperature they could be formed into candy-bars which was the original question for this thread.  (I know you wanted store bought)  Anyhow...they don't melt once hardened unless (like a candy bar) you expose it to the same conditions that would melt it.
