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.

  4. says

    DON’T pick me to win, even though I believe I would qualify, I’m already a Choffy drinker, and a distributor. But it IS amazing! The healthy energy keeps me going through the day, and because it’s 100% cacao, it helps to curb my sweet tooth – and at 20 calories I can drink as much as I want!

    When I was a kid growing up in NY, NOTHING made the kitchen smell more like HEAVEN than when Mom Sylvia would make Hot Cocoa from scratch!! Us kiddies would come in from playing in the snow, rosy cheeked, and co-o-o-old; we’d take off our boots and jackets, place out mittens, hats and scarves on the radiators to dry out and then we’d run into the kitchen to sit down to steaming mugs of PURE HOT CHOCOLATE!! 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! THANK YOU MOM!!!And Thank YOu Choffy for creating this wonderful cocoa!!!

  39. Julie says

    I’d like to win this because I can’t drink coffee. In fact, I had to give up all coffee (including decaf) and most teas. I am constantly surrounded by people drinking or brewing coffee and I love the smell but I can’t have any. Even 3 sips made me sick for hours the last time, almost a year ago, so I haven’t had a single sip since then. I would really like to find an alternative and I love chocolate. I can tolerate chocolate so I don’t know what it is in most teas and coffees that bothers me.

  40. Lori says

    I’m always looking for a way to cut out the sugar. I don’t like coffee, so Choffy sounds like a great alternate. Would love to give it a try!

  41. marsha mcfarland says

    anything chocolate is up there in my book. Some of the stuff out there cause major headaches so this i will try.

  42. Amanda says

    My husband and I are big coffee drinkers we both have about 2-3 cups a day. I on the other hand am a HUGE chocolate lover, I know most women are. I love coffee and I would love to try and satisfy my chocolate craving right in the morning with some great Choffy! Also the fact that it has “magical” powers is a plus also!

  43. tami says

    I’m so curious! I love chocolate, I love coffee, I’d love to win this Ch-off-y! Sounds like a match made in heaven!

  44. Eugenie says

    This sounds intriguing. I love coffee as well as cocoa so I would love to see what this tastes like.

  45. says

    I’ve never heard of Choffy before so I’d love to be able to try it first. But ground cacao sounds awesome! Even without the health benefits, anything that comes from the original form of chocolate has to be good!! This will definitely be shared on Twitter and Facebook, ’cause I think everyone should be aware of this incredible use of the cacao bean.

  46. Kari says

    I’d love to have a new hot drink to add to my winter warm-ups by the fire! I can’t wait to try it if I win! AND you can’t beat the health benefits!

  47. Robert Seinfeld says

    I just want to say I drink “CHOFFY”, it sounds really healthy. I am just learning about cacao and rally want to try it with my loved ones.

    I tried choffy at a Women’s Expo and was blown away by its flavor. So I bout a bag. Un like coffee it tastes amazing with out anything added to it. Plus I have finally found a pick me up in the morning with out getting the common rock gut that coffee always gave me. The best part of it all is its health for you. I am a very healthy eater and always said that coffee was my only clutch in life. Well since that expo I am happy to say that is no longer the issue. But I am excited to try the different once. I have only ever tried the dark. I am happy I came across this page.
