The Peanut Butter Cups That Will Put Your No Candy Diet To Shame

When I was 8 years old, I developed a candy drawer.

Any time I acquired candy from an event or occasion, I would save it until I got home to stash it in my drawer. The hiding place was essential for 2 reasons.

Reason number 1, I had a good number of siblings, none of which I wanted to be fondling or munching on my hard earned goodies. And reason number 2, I needed a candy trove within reach at all times so when my taste buds called for a sweet surprise I was fully prepared.

Now, many years later, I still have a hidden candy drawer. But for a slightly different reason. If I don’t hide any and all candy out of sight and out of reach it will somehow pop right into my mouth and go straight to my waistline.

Dieting woes, am I right?

Top 5 Crazy Perks Of Cacao Bliss

 

  • Feel-good chemicals. Cacao Bliss has chemicals that enhance your mood, such as serotonin, theobromine, PEA and anandamide.
  • Low sugar content. While other chocolate products on the market are overflowing with processed sugars and sweeteners, Cacao Bliss is sweetened with coconut sugar and monk fruit. Diabetes friendly!
  • Antioxidants to the max. Cacao Bliss contains one of the highest ranking antioxidant sources on the planet, raw cacao bean. It has more antioxidants than kale, blueberries and goji berries.
  • Energy for days. With several ingredients to help give you that needed energy boost, Cacao Bliss could even replace your daily cup of coffee.
  • King of superfoods. Cacao Bliss is a prime source when it comes to superfoods such as turmeric, mesquite and raw cacao, just to name a few. Your body will thank you for feeding it so nutritiously.
