Coco-Zen Review

Dark Chocolate…How can something that tastes so decadent actually be good for you too? In my humble opinion, this is one of the best scientific findings in recent years. Dark chocolate is rich in potent antioxidants which can be good for you in moderation.

Enter “Everyday Truffles” by Coco-Zen. My first bite of a Coco-Zen truffle was truly blissful. It was the perfect bite sized morsel of the finest dark chocolate. The taste explosion in that one Coco-Zen truffle was so satisfying that I didn’t even need (even though I wanted) another so it is perfect for moderate “everyday” dark chocolate consumption. Coco-Zen truffles are the perfect blend of chocolate and just a touch of organic sugar, cream and vanilla. I like just a hint of sweetness so that the chocolate taste shines though and Coco-Zen really delivers. Cheers to good health and harmony!

Coco-Zen truffles are Fair Trade certified and use organic cocoa to maintain the highest quality ingredients and a respect for the world we live in. Created by artisan Joyce Kushner, Coco-Zen seeks to “spread the joy of chocolate enlightenment one truffle at a time.” My truffles arrived in perfect condition in an air tight sealed tin. The 21 piece set of bite sized truffles was decadent and delicious.

What could be better than eating chocolate? How about drenching your body in Coco-Zen too? Coco-Zen has a line of chocolate lip care treatments that are simply amazing. I had the chance to try Coco-Zen’s Chocolate Lip Balm and the first thing that I noticed was the aroma of chocolate. My husband came into the room and it was the first thing he said, “Where is the chocolate cake?” Poor guy, he had to settle for a kiss to get his chocolate fix instead. Coco-Zen Lip Balms are created with real organic and fair trade chocolate, organic coconut cream and extra virgin olive oil. My lips were so smooth…my daughter asked if she could try it too. She is only four and I don’t allow her to wear any type of lip products despite her pleas but this was the first time that I said “yes.” She has very dry skin and lips due to her eczema and Coco-Zen’s lip balm is a product that made her feel special and is good for her skin too.

If you want the most kissable lips ever, before applying Coco-Zen Lip Balm you’ve got to try the Coco-Zen Edible Lip Scrub. This exfoliating beauty routine is fabulous and did I mention it is EDIBLE! Who could ask for better than that? Just use a tiny amount on your finger, rub softly in a circular motion, rub your lips together and lick it off. Ah….I can’t wait for my next treatment. My lips were so smooth and soft and all my kids wanted to give mommy sweet little kisses.

There is no doubt that I have started a long term love affair with Coco-Zen chocolates….Are you ready to experience Coco-Zen for yourself?
