Brew Yourself Some Chocolate—Win Choffy!

Choffy 1Eight lucky readers will win Choffy—that’s two full-size packages of —100% ground cacao that’s brewed like coffee (a $30 value)! 

Experience what brewed coffee is like—and take advantage of cacao’s health benefits in a new way! Win Choffy!

We’ve heard about the health benefits of chocolate, well this is brewed chocolate—a way to reap benefits without adding the sugar and fat of regular chocolate candy. Don’t get me wrong,  I still like chocolate candy (dark, and in moderation), but this product intrigued me greatly. I was sent a few varieties of Choffy to sample, here’s what I thought.

Choffy does not taste like hot cocoa/hot chocolate. I sort of thought it might. It does have a distinct flavor that is chocolatey, but since it is brewed, it reminded me of a cross between coffee and tea. It seemed thin in texture compared to coffee, but more flavorful than tea—just my feeling. After trying it on its own, dark, I did end up mixing the Choffy with my coffee grounds and liked the blended product a lot. It had great flavor, yet still tasted like my coffee. Adding a little skim milk or cream and a drop of stevia made it taste a bit like the favorite mocha latte from the coffee shop down the street—but less sweet, which I welcome, frankly. I find flavored coffee drinks waaaay too sweet in general.Choffy 2

So what are the health benefits of Choffy? Well, it contains lots of antioxidants (plenty of polyphenols)—good for crushing pesky free radicals in the body. It also contains caffeine of course, since that’s present naturally in cacao bean. Beyond that, theobromine, a natural chemical related to caffeine, is also in all chocolate products. Theobromine is a mild stimulant that acts as a vasodilator, helping to improve blood circulation. As an added bennie, some people may find that their cravings for sweets diminishes with Choffy consumption. Choffy contains no added chemicals, gluten, sugar, or dairy—it’s simply 100% premium, roasted cacao beans that have been ground. Amazing!

There are a variety of Choffy products to choose from on their website. You’ll note that it’s rather like choosing coffee, in that they have their own flavor profiles and are single estate beans from specific areas of the world. Some are darker (like the new Ivory Coast Dark), but all are small-batch roasted. I thought Choffy was an interesting and tasty addition to my coffee pot, though I’m sure some people will enjoy it all on its own.

Oh Sweet! Thick! Warming to our tummies. and then…. when we had emptied our mugs, our hats and scarves and gloves would be dry and we would RUN outside to play again!
