CHOCORIDGE

(This one is for the kids – When they clamor for chocolate and desserts and non nourishing meals, this is the option that we responsible and nutritionally manipulative smart parents place in front of them – with a sweet sweet smile! And they lap it up – because they cannot say No to deliciousness. By the way, it has the same effect on adults too! Let us nourish with Chocoridge – an alternative to the regular breakfast as well as to desserts).
