There are so many ways to celebrate Easter: egg hunts, egg painting, and chocolate bunnies! Our friends at Norman Love Confections, an SWFL chocolate boutique, has a few tips for choosing the best chocolate this Easter.
Start with Fresh Ingredients
You get out what you put in! GMO products may be the cheapest option, but their ingredients can do more harm than good in the long run. This provides a health benefit as well as an increase in enjoyment.
This tip goes hand in hand with tip one. A quicker expiration date hints towards fresher ingredients. Norman Love, the owner of Norman Love Confections, advises parents to buy chocolates that are purposed to be consumed faster. Chocolate with long expiration dates is generally packed with artificial sugars, which can be harmful in the long run.
Easter doesn’t have to be just for the little ones. Dark chocolate is heart healthy; so don’t hide all the candy. If you choose to give your kiddos chocolate you may want to lean towards the dark goodies since they provide a better overall health benefit.
Regardless of what you treats you and your family are enjoying this Easter, we hope you have a safe and memorable holiday.
