Traditionally, Easter holidays are filled with chocolate, sugary sweets, and sugar headaches.

Australians spend an estimated $3 billion dollars each year on chocolate (according to a study done back in 2013, and could have increased substantially since).

That’s a lot of chocolate! It’s also a lot of food to eat which has zero nutritional value. In fact, one standard sized easter egg can contain up to 60 grams of sugar.

Without trying to kill your Easter buzz (chocolate is life, let’s be honest), we’ve listed our 4 favourite chocolates that are also healthy alternatives to your typical easter eggs, and that you won’t feel bad about bingeing on.

These chocolate are made with raw cacao, which is the unprocessed version of the cacao bean. Unlike normal chocolate, which has been heavily processed and heat treated, all of the healthy benefits, such as the antioxidants and flavonoids in cacao are still intact.

1. Chow Cacao

Chow Cacao is made locally in Byron Bay and in small batches of delicious flavours. These creations are completely organic and sweetened with coconut sugar. We've stocked this delicious chocolate on our online store for two years now, after falling in love with Chow Cacao at first taste.
