Vere - Good For Diabetics - Chocolate

verē ("pronounced very") is the brainchild of Kathy Moskal. Kathy previously applied her innovative skills at HUE, the highly successful, leg wear company, and is now creating a luxury line of chocolates, all of which are suitable for diabetics and some of which are suitable for vegans, (soy-based, entirely egg and dairy-free).

She owns and operates her Chelsea-based chocolate factory and concocts her specialty confections from pesticide-free cocoa beans from the Ecuadorian Rainforest, certified to be sustainably-grown and responsibly harvested.

Having selected a potent Arriba, an heirloom varietal of cacao bean to form the base of her dark chocolate, she adds a proprietary blend of natural sweeteners -- which is low-glycemic, and won't cause one's blood sugar to spike. The result is slightly bitter-tasting, yet rich, decadent and delicious.

With twice the antioxidants of standard dark chocolate, vere's elegant line is both extensive -- from bars, brownies and clusters to tiles, truffles and wafers, and affordable. Dip into this guilty pleasure...this vere good, "food of the gods." Click here for availability, and don't miss the "special offer." Be on the lookout for vere good ice cream on the horizon. /m
