Its the time of year when many people in Punta Gorda want to curl up with a steamy mug of hot cocoa. What SW Florida chocolate lover doesn’t want to sip a mega-calorie concoction of high cholesterol saturated fats mixed with cavity causing sugars?
It doesn’t sound quite as appealing when you tell the truth about the conventional hot chocolate sold in SW Florida stores. Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda hot chocolate drinkers will be happy to learn that there is one brand of healthy antioxidant hot chocolate: XO Sipping Chocolate. XO, the company that created the healthy chocolate phenomenon has created a premium product for the hot cocoa lover.
Traditional hot chocolate mix is made with cocoa powder that has been stripped of its cocoa butter. XO Sipping Chocolate is made by melting solid dark chocolate that is packed with flavanoids and antioxidants. XO Sipping Chocolate is rich and creamy. You would never know it is good for your heart and won’t make you gain weight.
Many scientists are currently studying the health effects of dark chocolate and their conclusions continue to be overwhelmingly positive. Healthy chocolate has been shown to lower blood pressure, suppress appetite, decrease inflammation and (not surprising) elevate your mood.
Curl up with a steamy mug of XO sipping chocolate – The Healthy Chocolate Drink. Does life get any better?
