My family and I recently returned from a fun Orlando vacation at Disney World and the Universal Studios parks.
The end of our trip is bittersweet, as it's nice to relax in familiar
surroundings, but hard to leave the warm weather behind (thank goodness my sisters and I got Harry Potter scarves as souvenirs; BTW, did anyone catch the HP movie marathon over the weekend?).
At least I had a yummy sweet treat waiting at home for me. The kind people at Sequel Naturals had sent me some Organic MacaSure Chocolat bars to sample. I had hoped to receive them before the trip, but they were well worth the wait.
you know, I try to only review products I actually like, so lucky for me, this was chocolate (my biggest weakness) from one of my favorite companies. Of course, I liked it.
Although my blog is mainly
raw, I do sometimes indulge in cooked food lately (no secrets here), especially if it's good quality dark chocolate. I would have loved to add pieces of these bars to my overnight breakfast oats (I used to add protein powders and nut butters to my soaked overnight oatmeal years ago, but I have to give Gina, a.k.a. the Fitnessista, credit for bringing this concept back into my life with such a cute name; her signature version is called "The Breakfast Cookie" due to the w...), but I still enjoyed other Sequel Naturals additions instead.
I didn't hesitate to try a bowl of chocolate chip cookie dough oats with broken bits of MacaSure Chocolat mixed in. Delish! The chocolate paired well with my combination of oats, Vega Shake & Go in Vanilla Almondilla (my fave of the flavors), almond butter, banana and coconut water.
The MacaSure Chocolat contains maca, as if you couldn't guess. Here's what the brochure had to say:
your senses and reward yourself - without compromising your commitment to your body. MacaSure Chocolat is permission to succumb to your chocolate craving, apology-free." (I like the sound of that).
complementary blend of 70% cocoa, organic dark chocolate with maca is a great way to enjoy the benefits of premium maca. Each deliciously
decadent bar of MacaSure Chocolat contains 4000 mg of premium, organic maca, renowned for its hormone-balancing, energy-increasing and
libido-enhancing properties." (I told you it was a little naughty. Ha ha).
bars are definitely packed with maca; so much you can really taste it. I love its malt-like flavor and the way it makes me feel. I don't know
if it's just a placebo effect, but I could get used to eating this stuff. Thanks Sequel Naturals :-)
