Lily's Dark Chocolate with Stevia Almond -- 3 oz
Very good chocolate bar with no refined sugar
What I liked:
No GMO ingredients (I believe this is true. I emailed the company but only asked specifically if the soy lecithin was indeed GMO free, and it is.)
No refined sugar
Certainly, I would have preferred that the ingredients were organic, but to me, being Non-GMO is HUGE! There are 5g of sugar alcohol per serving of this chocolate, though, so you can't eat too much of this or you could end up with gas.
A previous reviewer had several complaints but I don't believe the reviewer's points were valid and judging by what they said, they didn't even seem to try the bar. I think it is ridiculous to review a product like this if it isn't even one you would purchase! You can't judge something you haven't tasted!!! One of their arguments against this bar is that it isn't organic. It isn't, but if that is what you desire, move on. At least it is Non-GMO!!!
This reviewer compared total carbohydrates without consideration of what kind of carbs they consist of, citing Chocolove's carb content as a comparison. For one thing, chocolove's serving is only 30 grams while this one is 40 grams. Chocolove's contains 11 grams of refined sugar while this one contains less than 1 gram of sugar (and 0g of refined sugar) and 11 grams of fiber! Additionally, Chocolove isn't organic either! I think that review should be disregraded. This bar is worth trying, but eat in moderation. I would welcome an organic version of this bar.

- More carbohydrates than many bars available on Vitacost that use sugar (almost double Chocolove)
- contains dairy
- contains corn
- not organic
- that stevia bitter aftertaste.

Oh, yeah, I am so gonna order this one again, and try others. Creamy smooth and superior taste. Not crackling hard and bitter like some natural dark chocolate bars.
