How Sugar Poisons Chocolate
scientists at KukaXoco (kúkazóko) have proved that safe and healthy extracts of de-cocainized coca leaf (FDA and DEA compliant - fit for sale wherever Coca-Cola is sold), debitters unsweetened cacao, allowing the chocolate industry to remove one of the world's most destructive and addictive drugs, sugar, from their products. By removing all sugar, while preserving taste and aroma of chocolate - with no bitterness, KukaXoco has turned chocolate into the world's most delicious health food.
Easy!!! Brew up to two bags of coca tea in a cup of hot water. Mix in two tablespoons of unsweetened Hershey's Cacao (or any non-Dutch processed cacao powder). Stir. Drink.
The bitterness is eliminated while preserving chocolate taste, aroma and color.
