RED Chocolate... Reviewed!

Today's review was just in time to greet my sweet tooth.

Red Chocolate is a brand of chocolate that delivers lower calories and flavors that range from Milk Chocolate to Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate w/ Hazelnut + Macadamia, Dark Chocolate w/ Orange + Almond, Extra Dark Chocolate, and Milk Chocolate Pralines. It has natural sweeteners instead of added sugar, and the company says that their cocoa is from the Ivory Coast (Africa).

Shout out to the company for supplying boxes of chocolate for us to try. On that note... it's time to dig in. I'm going to start off with the standard milk chocolate.

Milk Chocolate: This is a tolerable alternative if I didn't have a standard chocolate bar on hand, but... I'd gladly reach for this in pursuit of lower calories. To be honest, it would take some getting used to, because I'd have to acquire a taste for natural sweeteners like erythritol and stevia to truly appreciate this chocolate more than I do now. 

That said... I wanted to be fair in the review, so I got my wife to try it out to see if the chocolate tasted the way it should regarding the ingredients (she was more than happy I asked). She enjoyed the milk chocolate, but... she also uses stevia sweetener for her coffee and things like that, so it checks out as far as her tastebuds are concerned.

She said, "Pretty darn good for using stevia and no sugar".

Dark Chocolate: Believe it or not, even if I'm not a fan of dark chocolate... I can't tell the difference between this and the usual dark chocolate bar and I'd probably rate this the best out of the flavors that I've tried (it might be the easiest transition for dark chocolate fans). My wife didn't taste a difference in this product either... when it comes to dark chocolate.

She said, "It tastes the way it should, and that's a good thing". 

Dark Chocolate w/ Orange and Almond: This tasted the way I thought it would, and while I tried to appreciate this... I didn't enjoy it. The orange zest made it hard to enjoy because it increased the strong taste of the dark chocolate. My wife wasn't crazy about this one, but... she said that the orange zest didn't taste artificial at all.

She said, "It's not too bad just not my thing... orange & chocolate".

Ingredients include cocoa mass; sweetener (erythritol); cocoa powder; bulking agent (polydextrose); cocoa butter; milk fat; thickener (carrageenan); emulsifiers: soya lecithin, E476; flavouring; sweetener (steviol glycosides).

After doing my research, all these ingredients seem to check out as natural.

Size-wise, the grab-n-go bars are a little less than an ounce. So you're looking at 0.9oz sized bars.

Price-wise... these grab-n-go bars are on point at $9.99 for a 12 pack. This is less than $1 a bar, which is actually lower than bars I'm familiar with. My wife has purchased a variety of chocolate bars that are more on the healthy side, and trust me... the prices aren't exactly $1 per bar. They're more like $2.50 to $4.75 per bar. To be fair if you break some (definitely not all) of them down by the ounce, they equal out to about $1 per ounce.

Overall, not for me... unless I were aiming for lower-calorie chocolate with natural sweeteners. My wife gives them a green light, so this gives you her perspective as someone familiar with the taste compared to someone who doesn't eat and snack as healthy.
