Desperately Seeking ______________ on Sale...

What are you desperately seeking on sale?

Food Therapy

Good food is as satisfying as a good sale. So from time to time (probably more than that because I'm a foodie and I love to eat), I'll be providing some food therapy. Be forewarned, I'm an adventurous eater with a HUGE sweet tooth. If you're in NYC, I hope you try some of these spots. If you do, LMK what you think. Bon appetit!

Video Reviews

While picture reveals of bags are nice. Video reviews of bags are better! As such, I will endeavor to post as many video reviews of bags as possible. However, I will only be reviewing bags that I like. Life is too short to review bags that I dislike. Plus, at the end of the day, it really is just a matter of personal opinion/taste.


Food Therapy: Simply Lite's Dark Chocolate Bar

I am an unabashed chocolate lover (addict?) and I LIVE for dark chocolate!  For me, it's all about the taste and not about the sugar, carb or calorie content. This means that if there's a dark chocolate bar in the house, I eat first and ask questions later.

Usually, the chocolate in the house belongs to me but a few weeks ago, I found this dark chocolate bar lying around:

I didn't really look at the label except for the part that reads, "Dark Chocolate" and immediately, I started eating away.  It was actually pretty good and I took a second look at the label.  I was surprised to find that its was low carb, sugar free and gluten free.

Simply Lite's Dark Chocolate bar is sold at Trader Joe's and I'm pretty sure that I've bypassed it many times due to the "Sugar Free" labeling.  (Have I mentioned that I'm a sugar addict too?)  This is a good option if you're trying to be healthy but still need a chocolate fix.

Would I buy this myself?  Maybe...I do feel significantly less guilty when eating a Simply Lite Dark Chocolate bar than when eating a Vosges Dark Chocolate bar.  But it feels a bit too healthy for me.  Dark chocolate should be a luxury and an indulgence.  However, if I find another bar lying around the house, I will most definitely eat it again.

Note:  People have stated that they've had some issues with the maltitol, a sugar substitute, in Simply Lite's Dark Chocolate bar (think Olestra), but I haven't had any problems.  Maybe I have a stomach of steel?
