If you love pomegranates like we do in our family, you will enjoy this healthy pomegranate chocolate full of flavor and most of all full of great nutrients. It is so rich and satisfying but the best part is that you don't have to feel guilty if you eat more than one piece. My kids love it and they say it's much better than any chocolate they ever tasted.
