Blissfully Healthful Ingredients
Produced within the USA in small batches, each Blissfully Better confection is handcrafted in copper kettles. The dark chocolate is made from 100% organic ingredients, including their signature high nutrient coconut nectar. This is a great option for those who have diabetes and low tolerance to sugar.
The secret to creating these delicious gourmet treats is coconut flower blossom nectar, derived from the blooms of coconut trees. It’s a pure and simple low glycemic alternative to other available sweeteners such as cane sugar, organic brown sugar, honey and agave syrup. Coconut blossom nectar provides a slow release of energy, high nutrients, and 16 amino acids.
Coconut trees are extremely versatile. They contain fiber, vitamins C, E and several B vitamins. Coconut also contains minerals and electrolytes. These include calcium, iron, magnesium, selenium, sodium and phosphorous.
The Many Benefits of Dark Chocolate
A group of antioxidants known as flavonoids, is rich in dark chocolate with 70% or more cocoa. Studies have shown that flavonoids may help improve cholesterol; lower your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes; and lower your blood pressure. Some evidence may suggest that dark chocolate can even boost one’s mood and improve memory.
About Blissfully Better
After transitioning from a professional dancer to a Mother, CEO/Founder Bonnie Boroian found a way to indulge her sweet tooth without the sugar crash. When her focus turned to caring for her family, she began experimenting with healthier sweeteners. With an interest in creating a confection that provided high energy with high nutrition, in 2007, Bonnie discovered the alternative sweetener, coconut nectar.
In 2010, Bonnie journeyed to Bali, Indonesia to tour coconut plantations. There she learned more about the healthful benefits of coconut nectar and the sustainable organic practices of the farmers. Upon returning home, and within a few years, she decided to establish Blissfully Better. Adapting her mother’s famous recipe, Bonnie created the world’s first Toffee Thins. In 2017, Bonnie added Crunchy Quinoa Toffee Thins, Sea Salt Caramel Thins and Toasted Coconut Thins to the Blissfully Better confections line.
