A chocolate diet: say what now?
Dear readers, you’ve seen a great deal of reviewing on this blog of ours from restaurants to recipes to crazy desktop devices, but this, yes this blog post I’m writing right now, is our first dieting product review.
No, I’m not going on a diet. No, I don’t really plan on losing weight (though I should definitely exercise more). I’m just plain and simply intrigued.
What is this diet supplement you ask? Ah yes, well, it’s chocolate. It’s a chocolate that’s supposed to make you lose 4.25 pounds in a month if you eat three pieces of it everyday.
Excuse me….what? Did I just write that?
Well, before you dismiss me for falling for a crazy hoax that you might find a commercial for at 3 in the morning, let me explain my motive.
I simply decided to try a piece (or two) to see what it tasted like. Could diet chocolate really be chocolate? It sound pretty impossible, especially because it packs a slew of non-chocolate ingredients like: guarana extract, green tea extract, and artichoke extract (oh, and it also has maltodextrin and chicory inulin for those keeping track – like I know what either of those terms actually mean).
Yes, this French weight loss product called Chocla Slim, a product of the SlimDelices company makes a pretty eerie claim here, but its French, so its all the more intriguing…
So without further adieu, my official taste test results:
It does, in fact, taste like dark chocolate. It is in fact worthy of satisfying my chocolate craving that sets right around 3:30 in the afternoon (only since I started working in an office, I wonder why that is). And really, the fact that its dark chocolate and not milk totally wins some bonus points. The texture was a slight bit grainier than other chocolate, but really, if you didn’t know it was a dietary supplement, you would never know the difference.
So, if you’re feeling adventurous, or you’re just a chocoholic trying to lose some weight, perhaps you should give this product a try (Disclaimer: I haven’t tried this product out for weight loss, just simply for taste).
And no, I didn’t make this whole thing up. Check out the Slim Delices Web site if you don’t believe me.
