CocoaVia Bars

Mars, Inc., makers of Snickers and M & M's, is taking the antioxidant benefits of dark chocolate a step further with its new line of dark chocolate bars called CocoaVia, made with natural ingredients.

From their home page:

A new great tasting, dietary supplement that harnesses the power of one of nature's unexpected super fruits - cocoa.

Nutritious & Delicious

In addition to containing antioxidants, they're a good source of calcium (at least 20 percent of the daily requirement) and have been fortified with folic acid and vitamins , B12, C and E.

The portion size is smaller than that of most chocolate bars, too, keeping the calorie count at 100 or less, fat at 5 to 6 grams, and saturated fat around 3 grams. You can stir this supplement into coffee, milk, yogurt, oatmeal or protein shakes.

Flavanol Frenzy

CocoaVia Bars Cocoavia's products are loaded with flavanols, which are important for good circulation. The extract in every serving of CocoaVia delivers 350mg of cocoa flavanols and the most concentrated source of any cocoa extract!

Mars, Incorporated, a leader in cocoa research, has developed a patented process, which preserves the phytonutrient content of cocoa extract, allowing CocoaVia to guarantee a concentrated source of flavanols.

If dairy is a concern, you can relax, CocoaVia products are dairy free. The products are also kosher; they are certified OU. In addition, they are available in sweetened and unsweetened.

Look for the CocoaVia bars in your grocer's health-food aisle. Also available online at the Cocoavia website (see below).

Cocoavia also offers a supplement in capsule form. The capsules are a vegetarian cocoa extract supplement that promotes a healthy heart by supporting healthy blood flow. CocoaVia capsules contain the highest concentration of cocoa flavanols in a dietary supplement.

The products are not recommended for children.
