If you are trying to cut back on your sugar intake, but can’t do without dessert, check out Addictive Wellness. They have six different bars with six unique functions: tranquility, energy, beauty, focus, love, and recharge. Each bar uses different adaptogenic superherbs, which are listed on the respective box. Every one is sugar-free, dairy-free, GMO-free, nut-free, paleo, keto, and also vegan. In summary, these look like chocolate, taste a bit different from what you’re used to, but will still satisfy your cravings.
Check out their Amazon store.
All of their toffees are coated with decadent dark chocolate. Whether your try the key lime, sea salt, coffee, bourbon, orange bliss, or pumpkin, the dark chocolate layer will be a slightly bitter contrast to the sweet, rich, buttery toffee core. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, they’ve also started using their toffee kitchen to make reusable lemon alcohol wipes.
Sweet Vegan Chocolates
From luscious lemon to energizing espresso, Sweet Vegan offers a plethora of flavors, many of which are seasonal. They manage to capture the same amazing taste as dairy-based chocolate without sacrificing any flavor. Sweet Vegan offers a pre-packaged box, as well as the opportunity to create your own. If you want to keep up with their seasonal flavors, subscription boxes are a great idea.
Saratoga Peanut Butter’s Chocolate Almond Butter
Their Trifecta is an all-natural chocolate almond butter with dried cherries. There’s no added sugar or palm oil. You won’t have to mix that annoying layer of oil (which tends to settle on the top of many peanut and almond butters) back in. And these do not have to be refrigerated either. It’s great on toast and even better in smoothies. Try adding a spoonful to a banana and some Chocolate Oatsome oat milk.
For chocolate lovers, they currently have chocolate peanut butter and chocolate almond butter.
RED tastes nearly identical to “regular” chocolate but has half the calories, with 1/3 less fat. All bars are keto-friendly, with no added sugars.
You can purchase on Amazon.

Mezcla’s Mexican Chipotle Hot Chocolate Protein Bars
Mezcla has three different protein bars. Each has 10 grams of plant-based protein. Their Mexican Chipotle Hot Chocolate bars have a hint of cinnamon, like Mexican hot chocolate, and a bit of kick from the chili pepper.

It tastes like old fashioned chocolate milk, but without the dairy. For a taste similar to that of hot chocolate, just heat it up and add some whipped cream. Chocolate Oatsome is also a perfect addition to coffee.
Perhaps, its best use is as a base for a smoothie. The possibilities are endless, but you can start with Chocolate Oatsome, one whole banana, a few strawberries, and add ice. If you’re a Shakeology drinker, try one scoop of chocolate Shakeology powder, a banana, and 8 oz. of Chocolate Oatsome.
You can buy their chocolate and other flavors in packs of six on Amazon.
