Friday Favorite: Moser Roth Dark Chocolate

Are you broke?  Do you love chocolate?  Then today’s post is right up your alley.  Allow me to salute the hidden gem that is Moser Roth.  It’s today’s Friday Favorite!

As a reminder, I don’t get paid for these endorsements.  I don’t get free stuff.  Most of the products and companies I mention don’t even know I exist.  I just love finding awesome treasures and sharing the news!

Anywho, back to business.  If you know the brand name Moser Roth, let’s be friends… because now I know you shop at Aldi.  I do, too.  All the time.  I’m actually pretty passionate about it.  Going to Aldi is nothing to be ashamed of, and really, I can’t say enough good things about their ability to recognize and react to trends in healthier eating.  But that’s a whole other topic.  Let’s focus on the chocolate!

You’ll find it as soon as you walk in the door on your left.  There are several varieties, but my favorite is the one I’ve pictured here.  It’s the darkest you can get – 85% cocoa.  It is, for lack of a better word, the shiz-nit.  Each package contains 5 perfectly sized, individually wrapped bars, which are an acceptable 163 calories per piece.

I may be in the minority, but when it comes to chocolate… the darker, the better.  I feel like milk chocolates can sometimes taste waxy and bland.  And milk chocolates always leave me wanting more.  They’re like crack, and I’m serious.  Something about real sugary “candy” candy turns me into an animal.  I can’t stop.  But super dark chocolate… it’s an experience, and when it’s done, it’s done, and that’s okay.  Often, I’ll carry one of these little bars with me to work.  After lunch, I’ll grab a hot cup of coffee and break off tiny piece after piece and let them melt in my mouth while I sip.  Serenity now.

What’s also great about this chocolate is the ingredient list.  I count a total of 4, all of which appear to be natural.  And, as we’ve all heard, small amounts of dark chocolate can actually be good for us, thanks to the anti-oxidants.  I’ve heard recommendations of an ounce a day, and what a coincidence!  One of these individually wrapped bars equals almost EXACTLY one ounce!  Incredible!

For the price, you really can’t beat the quality.  You’ll pay less than $2 for a whole package of this chronic at Aldi.  Buy yours today!

Have a healthy weekend!

  1. I just started shopping at Aldi and saw the Moser Roth dark chocolate. Being a dark chocolate lover I had to try it. What a find, silky smooth and satisfying. I found the quality and flavor to be on par with the big names for a good deal less money.

  2. Oh me too. I currently have a bar at the end of the working day, straight after dinner. It has helped me no end in not wanting to head out to get milk chocolate or sweets. Plus knowing it is there in the cupboard, gives me a feeling of security that I do not need to binge.

    • Hey Carol! Thanks for the comment! I also love a little bit (1 tbsp.)of melted coconut oil with some raw cacao powder mixed in… and some stevia to taste. Eat it in its liquid form or refrigerate it so that the oil hardens back up. That way it can melt in your mouth. I love the decadent flavor of the coconut oil and the chocolate together. Super health, guilt-free dessert! It also makes a great coating for fresh fruit!

    I recently tried it and its bitter at first but then I fell in love with it. I love chocolate but I also love being in shape so this chocolate made it possible. 🙂

  5. Does anyone happen to know how the chocolate has been processed (I.e., was it Dutch processed with alkali?). I can’t see to find the answer to this and it doesn’t say on the package
