If you enjoy eating, you know that sugar plays an important role in bringing out the flavor, and chocolate is no exception. Lily's provides us with a sugar-free choice in their [70 extra dark chocolate](https://lilys.com/products/extra-dark) by using stevia. As you may know, stevia is much sweeter (200-300x) than sugar, so you have to be careful not to use too much.

If you've never come across the stevia plant, I can assure you that the tiny leaves - even if you just put them on your tongue, taste sweet.

Lily's apparently wasn't satisfied, so they also used erythritol, a natural sugar alcohol, in much larger amounts - 6 grams according to the nutrition facts. It doesn't say how much stevia is in it, but it's last on the ingredients list, while erythritol is #2. The good news is that these two sweeteners have just about no calories (but this 2.8 oz bar has 180). Unfortunately, I don't know how they alter the flavor compared to pure sugar. What I *can* tell you is that the flavor is noticably lighter than most other chocolates I've tasted (not that I've had many sugar-free types). If you're looking for a relatively mild flavor, then you're going to enjoy this bar. If, however, you want a robust, complex flavor, I suggest you go with top chocolates like Scharffen-Berger (formerly a Berkeley, CA company, but it was acquired by Hershey's in 2005) and Whittaker's (New Zealand).

In case you're shocked by the $40 price, that's for a 12-pack!
