For chocolate lovers this is maybe the most important question. Did you know that most chocolate you find in the store (even many expensive fine chocolates) contains little or no cocoa butter? It is sad but true. Finding chocolate that uses no soy or palm oil fats is nearly impossible. You see, chocolate manufacturers extract the cocoa butter and sell it to cosmetic companies. The cocoa butter is more valuable than the chocolate itself! So effectively they are removing a heart healthy fat and replacing it with a heart clogging one. If you love chocolate and want to get the real thing, read the label to see for yourself. Caribeans chocolates are simply cocoa beans and a little raw sugar. All of the good stuff in the bean goes into the chocolate and you can taste the difference!
