...Well, Naturally : A choctastic giveaway

#1Pop is a type 2 diabetic.

A type 2 diabetic who loves cake, biscuits and chocolate.

Possibly the only thing he loves more is the casino.

Apple, tree, I know.

And so it was purely in the interest of #1Pop's health that I handed over free chocolate without much malice or whining on my part.

People of the interverse, I present to you:


#1Pop: Chocolate aficionado and reviewer***
Giddyup? Moo? I dunno...

A little bit about your reviewer:

#1Pop is a Gemini who enjoys long walks on the beach poker machines, foreign films the Discovery Channel, fine dining eating all the processed sugars he shouldn't be, and building houses for a charity in Cambodia.

When not doing all that, he enjoys giving me the shits by revving the Feral Threesome up and then sneaking next door to #1Brother's house to enjoy the screaming and screeching as I try and diffuse them.

He also tells a killer ostrich-riding story.  True story.  The ostrich riding and the fact that he does a killer recount of said ostrich riding.

...well, naturally


...Well, duh - obvious choice for a sweet tooth type 2 diabetic.

It's chocolate with no added sugar.  That's not to say there's no sugar at all, just that there's a lot less than other chocolates - around 80% less....which means for those non-diabetics like me, 4 times the allowed consumption, yes?



#1Pop on the creamy milk barYep.  It's good.  Tastes good.  And it's sugar free?

MeNo, not sugar free.  But it only has 20% of the sugar that other chocolates have.

#1PopIt's not as sweet.  But it's good.....where's the rest?

He is a man of few words, my friends.  This is like an epic conversation.  I couldn't shut the man up.




#1Pop on the fruit and nut barYep. This one. This is really good.

MeSo this is your favourite?

#1Pop: Yeah, the fruit and nut make it taste sweeter.....where's the rest?



This is going to be my go-to gift for him, in place of the usual scratchies and Bunnings gift cards. 

You can get them at Woolworths in the HEALTH FOOD aisle (it's totes healthy and good for you and therefore should be consumed on a daily basis, ok?).

Or, you can drool over my wall of chocolate right here....
 

...and enter to win your own wall of chocolate AKA a 20 pack of ...Well, Naturally bars.

For your chance to win:

  • Comment below with your favourite chocolate flavour.
    I'm a sucker for peppermint (in lieu of red wine flavour)

  6. I love white chocolate. Super sweet. Funnily enough, I had no desire for chocolate before I got pregnant with my first child. I suddenly developed a chocolate craving and was swallowing chocolate bars all pregnancy long. And it didn't go away after that. Now I have a big sweet tooth unfortunately which is not a great thing with trying to lose weight after 3 kids lol!

  21. My favourite chocolate would have to be almond, followed closely by macadamia- a bit nutty here! russellcathryn at yahoo dot com dot au

  22. You've got to love companies that make chocolate even MORE appealing. I would not have thought it possible, because it's the perfect food. Yes, it has it's own food group in our household.

  39. LOL great review! Straight to the point with no fluff to wade through!

    Now for the toughest question ever... Why must you make us all choose! It's like choosing a favourite from your kids but, you know, harder! ;P

    If I *have* to choose I'd probably say orange, but only just! There are just sooo many good flavours! Yum!

  40. My favourite chocolate flavour is milk chocolate. Different flavours are good for a change but when it comes down to it, the original milk chocolate always hits the spot.

  41. Mmmm, Fruit and Nut - with emphasis on the nut!
