Food Boredom: it is a thing that’s accentuated by a shortage of tasty snacks in the house. Grocery shopping is much less fun these days, and with many confectionaries and gourmet shops closed, thank god that we have the miracle of internet shopping to procure favorite specialty foods and sweet treats. If you’re following a Keto diet, you don’t have to ignore your sweet tooth, thanks to ChocZero, the go-to chocolatier for premium sugar-free, keto-friendly treats. Even better: you can buy them online!

Adding to its popular line of all-natural-ingredient chocolate candies, ChocZero just launched their indulgent version of a confectionery legend: the Peanut Butter Cup. Peanut Butter Cups are one of the most popular candies in the States, and for good reason: they offer both sweet, delicious chocolate and protein-packed peanut butter. Win win!

Available in milk, dark, and white chocolate varieties, ChocZero peanut butter cups are a no-added sugar treat that gets sweeter with every bite — and, surprisingly, they are:

  • Keto friendly
  • Sugar alcohol-free
  • All-natural
  • Sweetened with Monk Fruit only
  • Soy Free
  • Palm Oil Free

ChocZero Milk Chocolate Variety

ChocZero recently sent me samples of all three varieties, assuring me that these peanut butter cups would taste as good as the well-known brands, with zero added guilt. My verdict, they speak the truth! Each bag contains six individually-wrapped candies; and when you open the package you will notice that these peanut butter cups don’t include a paper wrapper, which makes for less mess.

Thrive Ice Cream: A Delicious and Nutritious Treat

Thrive Ice Cream Packaging

Do you like Ice Cream? I sure do. Now that the weather is warming up, I am thinking of all of the foods I have not been indulging in so much during the colder months, and one of those is ice cream. At a recent food trade show here in Manhattan, I was introduced to Thrive Ice Cream; a brand of ice cream that not only tastes amazing but is actually good for you. I am not a person who is overly concerned with healthy snacking because I try to just use common sense when I snack, but to have a sweet treat that I already enjoy be fortified with protein, potassium and vitamins? This sounded like a good deal to me!

Thrive Ice Cream Packaging Detail

The good people at Thrive recently sent me some samples of their ice cream in both the Homemade Vanilla and Milk Chocolate flavors, and here is what I love about this ice cream. As you can see by the package, one serving of Thrive contains 9 grams of Protein, 3 grams of Fiber, 50 mg of Potassium, 4 Probiotic cultures (so important for digestive health) and 24 Vitamins and Minerals. Each package includes two individual 6-ounce servings for easy sharing as well as portion control – because, seriously, how many of us could just grab a spoon and eat an entire pint without even thinking about it? One serving has just 250 calories but tastes totally indulgent, especially for a snack that is actually healthy!

Thrive Ice Cream Vanilla

You can see in the photo above that the Vanilla flavor is a rich, buttery yellow (it kind of even looks like you are sticking your spoon into a tub of margarine), but the color is owed to the richness of the flavor, which is closer to a French Vanilla than traditional plain Vanilla. The flavor is so rich, in fact, that on one snacking occasion I was perfectly satisfied with eating just half of the container, and saving the rest for later (I just covered the container with a piece of foil and returned it to the freezer. It tasted perfect and had maintained its creamy consistency when I went back to finish it off).

Milk Chocolate Thrive, Serving Suggestion

The Milk Chocolate flavor is equally delicious and should satisfy the sweet tooth of the most die-hard chocolate lover. The texture of Thrive is also super creamy, lest there be any suspicion that this is really ice milk or frozen yogurt masquerading as ice cream. It would be perfect for the base of a delicious Hot Fudge Sundae or to dress up with any of your favorite toppings.

Edamame Crunch Chocolate Bars

Edamame That Goes Crunch

You know how Sweet and Salty taste combinations in the snack realm are kind of trending, as they say, right now? I’m down with that, but I also think that when you add a little crunch action to the sweet and salty flavor sensation, you truly reach for the sublime. The Praim Group, who recently introduced the Andy Warhol Chocolate Bar have seemingly all the bases covered with their new chocolate bar called Edamame Crunch. The Edamame Crunch Bars are made with dry roasted edamame (immature soybeans in the pod) and a touch of sea salt blended with either Dark or Milk Chocolate. I’ve already eaten half of one of the Milk Chocolate bars while watching AMC’s Walking Dead Marathon and I will confess that this is the creamiest, most indulgent chocolate I have eaten in bar form. Plus, the crunchy edamame and tiny flecks of sea salt take this snack experience to a whole other level. It makes me wonder what Chocolate-covered wasabi peas might taste like (Mmm…wasabi peas). Maybe Praim Group will invent that next! The 3.5 ounce all-natural, Kosher, dark and milk chocolate Edamame Crunch Bars are now available for purchase at just $2.95 per bar wherever fine chocolate is sold, or directly from the Praim Group website at This Link!

Andy Warhol Chocolate Bars!

I love chocolate, and apparently the late, great Andy Warhol was a lifelong fan of the sweet stuff as well. Now, in homage to the Pioneer of Pop Art, Praim Group – a food licensing, marketing and distribution company – has secured an agreement with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc., to create and distribute a line of all-natural chocolate bars featuring the likeness of the globally famous Artist on its wrappers.

With four different designs, each wrapper also boasts one of Warhol’s famous quotes including, “All I Ever Really Want is Sugar,” “Everybody Must Have a Fantasy,” “The Idea of Waiting for Something Makes it More Exciting” and the artist’s arguably best known and definitely most misquoted saying, “In the Future Everybody Will Be World Famous for 15 Minutes.” The 3.5 ounce, all-natural “Chocolate Andy Bars,” available in both dark and milk chocolate, are an ideal collectible and perfect gift for any art fan!

Distribution outlets are still being acquired, so I can’t say how soon this edible chocolate collectible will be available at your neighborhood supermarket or specialty shop, but in the meantime the Andy Bars can be purchased for $5 each directly from the Praim Group’s website at This Link.
