In Which a Chocolate Bar Claims to be a Slimming Aid…

SEXY chocolate?!?

Chocolate is probably the last thing on people’s minds as far as slimming aids are concerned.  For most die-hard dieters, chocolate is the enemy: it ranks up there with other good things like bacon, cheese, and foie gras as waistline ruiners.  But a local company has gone and made a chocolate bar that actually helps the slimming process.

Weight-Ah-Minute‘s Chocoholics Sexy Chocolate Bar (!) features 65% dark chocolate amped up with fat-burning Garcinia cambogia extract, as well as extracts of green tea and green coffee beans.  (Like L-carnitine, only from herbal sources.)  The bar is actually a collaboration between WAM’s parent company Nutritalk and local artisanal chocolatier Theo & Philo.

It is a surprisingly rich-tasting bar: smoky, bittersweet, with the right snap and smoothness that only proper dark chocolate can have.  I have no idea if it actually works, but it makes for an interesting alternative to any other chocolates you may be keeping in your desk for a quick workday power boost.  😉
