Hi All!!!

I've finally found sugar free chocolate in the UK!!!!!!!!
The brand is Cavalier, I just saw some on Ocado.
I won't be able to try just yet, as it has vanilla extract and I'm still in my first 2 months (Explorer), but I'm already soooo relieved to know it exists :-)

I thought I'd pass the good news on.

I would check the ingredients first if i were you, as they say there is non such thing a sugar free lunch ;)Erythritol, Steviol Glycosides i wonder if these will be the new aspartames of the future, not a pleasant thought.

obviously no good if you are a fructose Mal absorber.

What are the Side Effects?

Excessive consumption of erythritol (over 80 grams per day) may result in digestive upset, diarrhoea, and bloating.

The raw chocolate company does bars sweetened with coconut sugar. Coconut sugar has a lesser effect on blood  than regularand it is non-refined so quite high in various minerals. The chocolate is not cheap, I can buy a 44g bar for £1.55 at a local vegan co-operative, think it's around £1.99 if you buy online, but their vanoffee bar is my favourite chocolate EVER! I've given them to lots of friends and family and everyone loves them.
