The world record for the largest chocolate bar was broken on Sept 13, 2010. Guess where? Armenia! The chocolate bar weighed 9702 pounds (4410 kilograms). I don’t know why the location surprised me; chocolate is loved all over the world just as much as here in Punta Gorda, but if I hadn’t seen the news story I would have guessed Belgium, Switzerland, Japan or Hershey, Pennsylvania.
The Armenians may have created a two-ton candy bar, but XO promoters are selling tons of gourmet healthy chocolate in Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda and North Port. If you are new to this Punta Gorda healthy chocolate blog, let me explain why XO is healthy. XO chocolate is packed with antioxidants which protect your system from free radicals. There is strong evidence that many chronic illnesses prevalent in Punta Gorda are caused by free radical damage. These include arthritis, diabetes, depression, high blood pressure and kidney disease. Free radicals also play a role in several types of cancer.
XO proudly displays the Brunswick Lab ORAC score on each Punta Gorda healthy chocolate label. The ORAC score is the amount of each type of antioxidant contained in the particular dark chocolate product. Brunswick Laboratories is a non-affiliated commercial lab that measures antioxidants in North Port health foods and SW Florida nutritional supplements.
The Florida XO chocolate collection includes chocolate cookies, solid chocolate, chocolate protein bars, the chocolate weight-loss shake, hot cocoa and a chocolate energy drink.
If you are a Punta Gorda chocolate cookie muncher, a Port Charlotte energy drink pounder, a Punta Gorda chocolate protein bar eater, or a North Port hot cocoa sipper, XO has an antioxidant chocolate product for you.
