Avocado Chocolate Is Here And It’s Basically Good For You - Women's Health UK

Every day, 3 million new snaps of avocado—halved, smashed and slathered on toast—are posted on Instagram.

In 2015, nearly £146 million worth of avocados were bought in the U.K. alone—and this year, hundreds of Brits have been admitted to A&E with the dreaded ‘avocado hand’ (read: a big old cut through their palm from slicing the knobbly green fruit incorrectly).

Spare yourself the danger, chocolatiers have come to the rescue.

Straying from the family’s trademark Dairy Milk, descendant James Cadbury has launched an entirely new kind of sweet treat—Avocado Chocolate.

Europe’s first ever, the wellness-friendly bar combines Hass avocado with 70% organic dark chocolate. This healthy duo is a treat savvy way to get your fill of vitamins C, E, K and B6, magnesium, potassium and omega-3 fatty acids. But how? The freeze dried pulp powder used in the bar holds the same taste, texture and nutrients as a real avocado… smashing.

And at 49g of sugar per 100g, it’s seven grams less than your average Dairy Milk, which weighs in at 56g. Enjoy in moderation, but you’ll know already that dark chocolate is packed full of flavonoids and polyphenols, which are antioxidants and anti-inflammatory.

James Cadbury, Founder of Love Cocoa, said: “Growing up a Cadbury, I’ve always loved chocolate and experimenting in the kitchen. And like the millions on Instagram, I’m also an avocado fan, so I thought why not mix two of the most loved flavours and foods together – and that’s how the avocado chocolate bar was born!”

Weekend plans, sorted. Pass the avo choc.

Love Cocoa’s Avocado Chocolate Bar is available to buy now from Love Cocoa, for £4.25.
