Who loves chocolate? *Raises hand, jumps up and down in excitement* Me, Me, Me! Who doesn’t?!? (I know some people don’t but the majority of people I know do 😉 ) I love chocolate so much, it’s just a bad idea to even have it in my house! It doesn’t last long that’s for sure. In fact I didn’t even have the Angell Organic Candy Bars in the house 12 hours and they were devoured! I posted a pic on my personal Facebook page, my husband saw it and right after dinner he asked about the bars and that was it! They were opened and sampled quite happily I might add.
I was sent one each of their three bars; Angell Crisp, a milk chocolate bar with a crispy creamy center (gluten-free), Snow Angell, a white chocolate bar with a sweet and creamy coconut center and finally Angell Dark a dark chocolate bar with a rich cocoa and almond center(vegan).
Our favorites were the Angell Crisp and the Snow Angell bars. They were just heavenly! I don’t ever reach for a white chocolate candy bar, but let me tell you I would reach for this one each. and. every. time. I think it was the creamy coconut centre that got me. My husband said it was one of the finest white chocolate candy bars he’s tasted in a while. And the Angell Crisp bar….oh my a very close second, oh who am I kidding it’s tied for first! I LOVE anything with caramel in it. Add some crispy bits, SOLD! Unfortunately the Angell Dark was not our favorite bar, which really surprised us because we love dark chocolate and strong flavored foods and drinks. We found it had a very harsh cocoa taste like it was in the 75-90% cocoa range. However, I ate more of the bar just now with my cup of coffee and WOW! The coffee brought out the goodness and took away the taste I didn’t like. Which may have been the almond extract but it’s hard to tell.
Each bar has only 5-7 pronounceable ingredients and less then 200 calories! A candy bar you can feel good about eating.
Angell Organic Candy Bars are the world’s first FairTrade Certified® organic candy bars.
Angell Bars are a heavenly treat sure to please even the most discriminating sweet tooth,
made using the highest quality, certified organic ingredients, and premium organic and
Fair Trade chocolates. Designed to be a candy bar without compromise, Angell Bars draw
on the rich tradition of American candy bars, while carefully examining every step of
production with an eye towards implementing more ethical, responsible practices (or, as
their founders put it, following an Eat No Evil™ philosophy).
Husband-and-wife founders Christopher and Suzanne Angell created Angell Bars to fill
a gap in the candy market for a traditional candy bar that consumers could feel good
about eating because of the product’s high quality ingredients, sustainable production,
and reasonable price point. “Suzanne and I have always shared a love of candy bars, but
we found ourselves unable buy our old favorites as we learned more about how they were
produced.” said Christopher Angell. “We created Angell Bars so that everyone could
enjoy a delicious candy bar without compromising their values.” In addition, Christopher
and Suzanne donate 1% of the gross sales of Angell Bars to environmental organizations
through 1% For the Planet (www.onepercentfortheplanet.org). When you eat an Angell
Organic Candy Bar, you not only eat something delicious, you also Eat No Evil.
These sinfully delicious organic candy bars are produced in the most innocent of ways.
Angell Bars are packaged in 100% recycled, 50%+ post-consumer cardboard caddies, and
run their website on servers powered by renewable electricity.
I suggest you head on out and get yourself some of these bars. And while your at it, keep your eyes open for a new bar coming soon…..
