Eat Chocolate, Stay Healthy! March 25, 2010

May we just say, we’re LOVING the sound of this.

An East Lancashire businessman believes he can help people to stay healthy – by eating chocolate!

Gary Bailey is the man behind Choco-Vit, a ‘superfood’ packed with antioxidants, vitamins and essential minerals.

The 48-year-old claims his combination of dark chocolate and acai berry, which contains 27 calories per piece, can be used as an aid to healthy eating, weight loss and mood enhancement.

Priced at £14.99 a box, acai choc (the first product in the Choco-Vit range) contains 30 squares of chocolate, each of which contains 500mg of acai berry, a superfruit from Brazil rich in omega three, six and nine, 19 different amino acids, plus vitamins B1, B2, B3, C and E and minerals including potassium, calcium, copper, magnesium and zinc.

Bailey said: “This is a superfood that uses chocolate as a means of delivering all the vitamins, essential minerals and anti-oxidants that health conscious individuals should take every day.”

We’re health conscious!  We’re health conscious!  VERY health conscious.  Which means we would need to eat at least five bars a day.  Because, y’know, we’re that dedicated to being healthy.

We suppose we should mention that some stupid dietician person from some stupid Primary Care Trust called the product an impractical marketing gimmick, but WHAT DOES SHE KNOW?  … Okay, quite a lot.  But still!

Don’t shatter our dreams!
