6 Great Natural and Organic Chocolate Bars: Mother Earth Living Editors’ Picks

| 9/19/2013 10:50:00 AM

Mother Earth Living Editors' Pick logoCraving something sweet? Feeling stressed? Chances are you’ll be reaching for chocolate in these situations. More than most foods, chocolate is tied up with emotions: happy, sad, content, stressed. Thankfully, this beloved food offers some health benefits—chocolate contains substances called flavanols that offer antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and heart-health-boosting properties, among other benefits.

Of course, the source of the chocolate is key to its quality. A grocery store Hershey’s bar won’t offer the same health benefits—or depth of taste—as minimally processed, high-quality dark cocoa. For a chocolate bar whose ingredients pay mind to the earth, whose craftsmanship caters to our taste buds, the eating of which is an experience in itself, check out the chocolate bars below—all selected and happily taste-tested by the Mother Earth Living staff!

Mother Earth Living Editors Pick organic chocolate bars 

Alter Eco Dark Coconut Toffee

Alter Eco’s Dark Coconut Toffee bar was an office favorite—once opened, it didn’t last long! This organic chocolate bar features sea salt and crunchy, buttery coconut toffee surrounded by 47 percent cocoa. It is both USDA organic-certified and fair-trade certified. Alter Eco harvests the cacao beans for this particular bar from a cooperative in Peru.
