I picked up a box of CocoaVia chocolate snack bars today on the recommendation of a friend.

On the label, it says "promotes a healthy heart". They are low in fat (3 grams) and sugar (6 grams) and 80 calories per bar.

This is the description from drugstore.com:

Real Chocolate Pleasure While Being Good To Your Heart Every Day™

CocoaVia™ Chocolate Bars contain natural plant extracts which have been proven to reduce bad cholesterol (LDL) by up to 8%*.
CocoaVia™ is made using the Cocoapro® process. This guarantees the retention of high levels of naturally occurring cocoa flavanols to help promote healthy circulation. These cocoa flavanols are similar to those flavanols found in red wine and green tea.
CocoaVia™ contains heart healthy vitamins B6, B12, folic acid, antioxidants C and E, and is an excellent source of calcium.
We select only the finest quality, all natural ingredients for use in our products, like specially selected cocoa beans, soy crispies and other wholesome ingredients. Enjoy.


For a chocoholic like myself, these are a good substitute. Very Happy They taste like real chocolate and for me, satisfy the craving.

They come in other flavors like chocolate almond, chocolate blueberry, chocolate bar, crispy chocolate bar.

I heard about these things from Hungry-girl.com and get them whenever I go to Target. One time I cut one up and mixed it with Fiber One to bring to work....watch out....they melt FAST. Laughing They're good though, and really rich.

I'm busy with writing about Mars, Inc. these days, the producer of CocoaVia, so i thought i post the following comment :

"The Food and Drug Administration has a thing or two to say about the heart-healthy claims made by Mars' CocoaVia chocolate, launched last year. A letter to Mars' parent company Masterfoods USA from the FDA describes CocoaVia as "misbranded," due to what the FDA believes are conflicts between the antioxidant-rich chocolate's saturated fat content and its claim to be a heart healthy product, NutraIngredients-USA.com reported. Claims of health benefits make CocoaVia more drug than food, and would, in turn, require pre-market approval and a change in how the chocolate is marketed. The FDA also takes issue with the amounts of folic acid in some CocoaVia products, citing their recommendation of 1 mg per day. Masterfoods USA must now notify the FDA of how it plans to comply with the group's complaints, according NutraIngredients-USA" (source: Nutra Ingredients)

It does say it's good for your heart on the box...and it's with the diet food, so that all makes sense. I don't eat it because of the heart stuff though, there's only 90 calories in one bar and they're portioned well, but they're kind of expensive.

I don't eat them for the so-called "health benefits" either. For me, it's a good alternative to chocolate and the prepackaged portions help to control otherwise out-of-control cravings. Very Happy
