Look!!!! Look!!
What I received last week!!!
...from Well Naturally via Nuffnang Australia (thank you ).
  • Dark chocolate with A├žai, 
  • Dark chocolate with mint crisp, 
  • Rich dark Chocolate, 
  • Creamy Milk chocolate, 
  • Milk chocolate with fruit and nut and 
  • Dark chocolate melts
I was excited to read that "No Sugar ADDED" was written all over the packaging. 
First thought that came to mind.... if my mom was still around, she would have enjoyed these chocolates, she had been a diabetic patient for 40 years.
But... these are not for her and others who are having the same health issues, its for everyone, trust me when I say, you wouldn't notice that there is NO SUGAR ADDED!!! 
My daughter who is a chocoholic and a fussy eater can vouch for that ;)... she loves the Well Naturally Creamy Milk Chocolate bar :D
