Carob is recognized as a healthy alternative to chocolate, with its major benefits being that it does not contain caffeine or theobromine like cocoa.
Supertreats offers chocolate substitutes for kids that are made with carob, which boasts the same texture and shine as chocolate, as well as the ability to snap into smaller pieces. Supertreats makes minimally processed carob bars that are packed with superfood add-ins like blueberries and Madagascan vanilla. The newest addition to Supertreats' line of healthy alternatives to chocolate is the decadent Cheery Chia, which pairs a base of carob with pure orange oil and chia seeds.
In its fight against sugary chocolates, Supertreats educates parents on "energy robbers" like refined sugar, caffeine and theobromine.
