Yachana Jungle Chocolate sounds interesting, doesn’t it? A product with such an intriguing name is just asking you to try it! I bought two varieties: Jungle Chocolate with Macadamia Nuts and Jungle Chocolate with Coconuts and Raisins.
First, I tried the Macadamia Nut version. Reading the nutritional information shows this is a very basic snack. These are the ingredients: beans, macadamia nuts, and sugar cane syrup. The chocolate is in melted looking little chunks and the nuts are separate. I tasted a handful and this stuff is good! It would easily pass as my chocolate craving for the day.
There are only 3 grams of sugar, but the serving size is a bit deceiving. The box is a little larger than a pack of cigarettes, but claims to have 6 servings inside. I did get seven servings out of but I was being pretty conservative. I don’t think you could eat the whole box in one sitting, but even still that’s only 18 grams of sugar. Far less than most low sugar snacks.
Next, I tried the raisin and coconut version. The ingredients include: Cacao beans, raisins, coconut, and sugar cane syrup. Again, their are very few ingredients in the product. This has the same 3 grams of sugar/6 servings ratio.
I thought this tasted pretty good. I found the raisins a little over powering. I’m not a big fan of raisins, though. I loved the coconut!
There are two more varieties: Jungle Chocolate with Pineapple (don’t think I’ll go there!) and Jungle Chocolate with Brazil Nuts and Essense of Coffee. I’d like to suggest my own variety of Jungle Chocolate with Macadamia Nuts and Coconut. That would really be good!
All in all, this is a good bite sized treat. It’s tasty and doesn’t have alot of sugar. Even if you devoured the whole box, you’d still be sitting at 18 grams of sugar. Divide the box by 3 and you’ve got 6 grams a serving, which isn’t bad at all!
