Dark Chocolate Rice Cakes

by Anne Paddock

Just when I think there couldn’t possibly be another new innovative snack on the market, along comes a simple and delicious treat that combines two mainstream products (rice and dark chocolate) to form a unique incredibly scrumptious confection: the Dark Chocolate Rice Cake. There really isn’t anything else like it on the market.

Made in Italy under strict European Union regulations, Element Dark Chocolate Rice Cakes are made with organic whole grain brown rice, organic white rice and dark chocolate (sugar, cocoa mass, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, and vanillin). 60% of the rice cake is dark chocolate while the remaining 40% is the rice cake so there is no shortage of the rich taste of dark chocolate that we all love. Crunchy and slightly sweet, the Element Dark Chocolate Rice Cake is a perfect snack with only 80 calories and 5 grams of sugar per large rice cake.ELEMENT_DC_3

    Kallo have been selling dark chocolate brown rice cakes for some years and they’re even available in the big supermarkets. Ingredients

    Organic Dark Chocolate (59%): Organic Cocoa Mass, Organic Cane Sugar, Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Wholegrain Brown Rice (41%)

    I concur that the combination makes for a delicious and healthy though moorish treat!

    Yes…I’ve had Kallo’s rice cakes in England where they seem to be widely available in the supermarkets. In the US, Kallo rice cakes are very difficult to find and not nationally or regionally distributed.

    Ah that’s a shame – nice to know they’re available where you are now and that they’re easy enough to be homemade too 🙂
