I received several items from Crio Brü for this review, all opinions are my own.
I am not a coffee drinker but I have always wanted to have a drink that can be spiced up a little the way coffee is. Coffee comes in so many different varieties and flavors that I wish Hot Chocolate did too. Now I can join the yummy hot drink craze! Crio Brü is a great new drink that comes in several flavors and it’s made from 100% roasted cocoa beans! Crio Brü smells and tastes like heaven! I love that I can control how much sugar, milk etc. to put into it. Hot Chocolate is a little to sweet for me and I like that Crio Brü is a little more bitter. Another great fact about this yummy chocolate drink is that it is only 10 calories per serving! I could have several cups if I wanted and not feel guilty about it.
I received the Cavalia flavor and was so excited to try it! ” Flavor Notes Of Coconut And Cinnamon Found Naturally In Premium Cocoa Beans From Ivory Coast
Winding along its western front, the Cavalla River gives shape to the exotic Ivory Coast. The surrounding agricultural area is dotted with small, family-owned farms that produce the very best African cacao. The dark, earthy-toned beans are carefully handpicked and dried naturally by the sun to enhance the full-bodied chocolate flavor, which hints of dark spice, coconut and cinnamon. These incredible natural flavors come to life when you brew a cup of Cavalla, made from 100% pure, perfectly roasted cocoa beans.
- Made from 100% pure, perfectly roasted cocoa beans with no additives
- Theobromine provides natural, healthy energy without the jitters
- Less caffeine than decaffeinated coffee
- Only 10 calories per serving and 0 sugars
- 4,516 UI antioxidants per serving ” (Crio Brü website)
It was really easy to make especially with the French Press that I received. All I needed to do was heat up my water and before I pour that in the french press add in the amount of Crio Bru that I want then pour the water in and let all of the grinds get wet. Then let it brew, it depends on how long with which flavor you get, then push the grinds to the bottom. Then I was able to add sugar, cream or whatever else I wanted to it. I tried mine with a little cinnamon and sugar and it was so yummy!
I also received the Chocolate Covered Cocoa Beans. I will admit that I am a chocolate snob. I absolutely love dark chocolate, I am not a fan of milk chocolate. I absolutely LOVE the Chocolate Covbered Cocoa Beans! I only need a few and my chocolate sweet tooth is completely satisfied! “Amazingly Delicious. Exquisitely Complex.Remarkably Satisfying Enjoy these delectable chocolate covered cocoa beans which deliver sky-high antioxidants and even more concentrated health-promoting benefits than dark chocolate. The unforgettable flavor in each Crio Bean contains a delicate fruity body with deep chocolate notes. Taste the origin of chocolate.” (Crio Brü Website)
