Cocofuel vs. chocolate bar by F-Factor

Fuel that holiday spirit!

The holidays are a notably stressful time, but a walk down Manhattan’s 5th Avenue, past the lavish department stores’ holiday windows, can light up even the grouchiest Grinch. Unfortunately, just eating Hershey’s 5th Avenue chocolate bar does not have the same magical effect.

Just one 5th Avenue bar packs in 38 grams of carbohydrates, 29 of which come from sugar alone. For a visual aid, 29 grams of sugar amounts to 7 whole teaspoons of the sweet, obesity-causing stuff! You would have to walk up and down 5th avenue (from Saks to Bergdorfs and back again) 5 times to burn off the calories from the carbohydrates alone in just one 5th Avenue bar! This holiday season, let’s leave 5th Ave for the window displays and holiday shopping, and let CocoFuel’s Almond Butter Dark Chocolate bar fuel our holiday spirit. 

The magic of CocoFuel’s chocolate bar is that it’s very low in sugar, and overall, low carb. In fact, an entire CocoFuel bar (which is 2 servings) has 66% less sugar than a 5th Avenue bar. Being in the fiber business, we especially love that each CocoFuel bar packs in 4 grams of belly-filling fiber. With 4 times as much fiber as Hershey’s bar, getting your chocolate fix with Cocofuel’s bar will not only fill you up, but keep your blood sugar levels in line as well. Indulging in a high-sugar Hershey’s bar, on the other hand, will leave you in sugar shock, and craving even more sweets, as it is devoid of fiber. The holiday temptations are tough enough as is, no need to make resisting even more difficult! 

What’s more, CocoFuel bars are dairy free, soy free, organic and and made with Fair Trade cocoa. Fair Trade works to promote healthy and safe work conditions, protect the environment and assure farmers get a fair price for their harvest. CocoFuel doesn’t just do your body good, but it does the world good too – how’s that for spreading holiday cheer!

Mouth watering yet? CocoFuel comes in 4 flavors (Toffee Cashew, Cranberry Cashew, Almond Butter and Toasted Coconut) and ships nationally. To order click here – Use code FUEL16 at checkout for 10% off your order.
