Has anyone tried Melville Candy Company's stevia sweetened chocolate bars? 98% chocolate and 2% stevia. It's the only chocolate sweetened with just stevia and is only available from the company (online), not in stores. Not cheap.
Lindt has a 99% cocoa bar that is delicious! It's hard to find (I only know one place that carries it above the 90% mark) but so worth it. It's uber satisfying with that great, fatty taste to it. Worth a try.
So now that I can't find this in stock anywhere I want it all the more. I might actually lose sleep if I can't get my hands on this stuff. (I'm such a marketer's dream sometimes, lol.) I set myself up to be notified if/when this stuff comes in stock again. I have a feeling it's going to be a bit too bitter for my 85% tastes but I'm excited to get to try something new in the world of chocolate.
What exactly are the ingredients? If its just cacao/cocoa and stevia then I'd be all over it. It looks like its available at Sears which is strange to me. The price is not terrible. I'd still prefer to buy 85% from TJ's for only $1.49 per bar myself. This very bar I am talking about was featured in this month's issue of Paleo magazine!
In short, if I saw it in a store I'd try it.
Well I've gotten a hold of the Melville stevia chocolate (under the name Dante) and it's remarkably good. I was very skeptical having made it myself and trying other's attempts but this stuff is the best I've had. All that's in it is chocolate (98%), stevia and vanilla. I was disappointed there was no cocoa butter as an ingredient but it works fine anyway. Tastes high quality. If Melvile is still out of stock google "stevia chocolate" for the Dante link...it's got to be the same product.
It turns out Melville is just a distributor, the manufacturer is Dante Confections (google stevia chocolate)...I've bought it twice and it's terrific, very high quality and well made. They tell me it's a long process and they don't have enough for distributors at this point. I eat 100% too (or tolerate it) but to those who purport to love the bitterness of 100% (and probably enjoy sex on a bed of glass shards) this might be too pleasurable.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!! Don't use stevia!!! It tricks your insulin even more than regular added sugar! It helps develop diabetes. Read this from Mark Sisson
