Perfect Fuel Chocolate Review
Perfect Fuel Chocolate sent me their product to review!!
Their story is great, and I can totally relate! Read it:
The Perfect Story
Camping out the night before a triathlon in 2010, Nicolas Warren noticed he was missing his ginseng, an important part of his pre-race routine. He was taking ginseng regularly to support his endurance during training leading up to the race and always snacking on chocolate.
He was prepared with tons of nutritious camping essentials like apples, raw vegetables, crackers and healthy dark chocolate, but simply forgot to bring ginseng.
On a mission to find ginseng, Nicolas drove for three hours the night before the race, checking all the stores in the area and ginseng tea was all he could find.
On his way back to the campsite, he was wondering why he couldn’t mix his ginseng with his chocolate just like nuts, or into his trail mix just like chocolate. That would be one seriously healthy snack. Good dark chocolate is already a pure, delicious, super nutritious food for athletes. Adding ginseng for the extra health benefit would be…. Perfect.
It seemed like everything in the snack bar aisle is relying on brown rice syrup, soy, or rice fillers to serve their purpose. Chocolate can deliver the vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, and taste without getting bored with another chewy power blob.
After a few test batches combining dark chocolate and other nutrient-packed ingredients, he realized how perfectly chocolate could deliver. Ever since, Perfect Fuel Chocolate is dedicated to sharing this ideally nutritious and functional food to people who like to eat healthy snacks.
As a competitive runner and racer, as many of you reading this probably are, we can all relate to those “pre race” rituals! I know I have a lot and do anything to keep them on track.
And anything with chocolate…hellllllo perfection.
