At Funky Fat Foods we want to bring healthy fats back, and in the meantime, change the game and remove the idea on people's minds that chocolate is unhealthy. We’ve taken the classic chocolate bar, full of sugar and useless, unwholesome ingredients, and made it into a healthy, sugar-free delicious experience so you don’t have to compromise your health. Life’s too short to eat sugary chocolate.
You may be wondering why the price of our Funky Fat Chocolates is more expensive than regular chocolate. The answer is quite simple, Funky Fat Chocs contain clean, functional ingredients that do not spike your blood sugar or give you cravings. Instead, it helps you with long-lasting stable energy. On the other hand, cheap chocolates only fill you up with empty calories, have 0 nutritional value, loads of sugar, and other artificial ingredients that, in the long run, may have detrimental effects on your health.

What are Funky Fat Chocs?
As we’ve seen, Funky Fat Chocs are the alternative to unhealthy snacks. Inspired to find a solution to the challenge many people face when looking for healthy low-carb snacks. We want to create the most delicious chocolate bar with the best possible nutritional value for a low-carb, sugar-free diet. But not just that, we added a special treat: MCTs, to make them functional and provide you with long-lasting energy. While also tasting as delicious as your old sugar-full chocolate, there is no longer a need to compromise on taste or health.
These Funky Fat Chocolate bars are the way to enjoy chocolate guilt-free, made with organic certified and 100% natural ingredients. Funky Fat Chocs are made with organic cacao from a sustainable plantation in Peru, which is delicious, high in antioxidants, and high in healthy fats. All our flavours are organic certified and ethically produced.
Our chocolate bars are FREE FROM
- Artificial flavors
- Artificial sweeteners
- Or any other fillers
Funky Fat Chocolates are perfect for everyone, keto or not. However, you get the best benefits from healthy fats when you reduce your carb intake. Our bars are also perfectly safe for kids and people with diabetes since they contain no sugar in them and the natural sweetener we use is called erythritol, which has a 0 GI (glycemic index), meaning it does not affect blood sugar levels. So it’s safe for people with diabetes.
Did you know that the antioxidants in cacao are blocked when you add sugars, milk, or fillers to chocolate? So, basically, you lose all the benefits instead of enjoying them. Luckily for you, Funky Fat Choc is focused on quality ingredients and skipping the artificial stuff so you can taste and enjoy properly, not just delicious chocolate, but also all the health benefits from organic cacao and the extra MCTs we add. This way, the antioxidants can do their job preventing damage to our cells, reducing inflammation, and improving mental clarity. Let’s take a look inside the chocolates and learn more about the ingredients.
Cacao from Peru
We get our cacao from a sustainable plantation in Peru. It’s pure, rich, organic cacao, packed with antioxidants that prevent cell damage and support blood flow, blood pressure, and reduce inflammation. Also, cacao, when pure, has plenty of healthy fats, soluble fiber, and minerals that are essential to our diets.
Organic Cocoa Butter
Cacao beans are roasted, stripped, and pressed to take out the fat which is high in fatty acids to keep your body active. Including it in your diet can decrease inflammation and help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, lower levels of LDL, and increase HDL, diabetes, and/or stroke. It also contains vitamin E to support good vision, brain, skin, and blood.
Cocoa butter is a very versatile ingredient. Not only is it included in chocolates, but it’s also a popular ingredient in skin creams, lotions, and lip balms.
Organic MCTs (Medium-Chain Triglycerides)
MCTs (medium-chain triglycerides) contain fatty acids that have a chain length of 6–12 carbon atoms extracted from coconut oil. They’re a fat source for people who cannot tolerate other types of fats. Unlike long chains, they go directly to the liver and are absorbed faster and may improve mental clarity, performance, and memory. The liver digests them more easily and converts them into ketones, which are a more steady energy source than glucose and help your body feel fuller for longer.
Erythritol is the natural sweeter that you’ll find in our bars. It occurs naturally in small quantities in some fruits and fermented foods. Ours comes from a natural fermentation process of glucose extracted from corn. It has a 0 GI (glycaemic index) and it’s easily digested, helps hydrate your colon, protects the intestinal tissue, and purifies the colon from pathological organisms. But it also has antioxidant properties fighting oxidative stress and preventing cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.
Organic Acacia Fiber
Acacia Fiber is a soluble fiber that helps slow digestion, has zero net carbs, is non-insulinogenic, and promotes gut health.
In our chocolate bars, we combine MCT oil with acacia fiber as the binding agent and as an added functional ingredient.
The bottom line
When people say something is cheap or expensive, what they’re really saying is whether or not that object is worth what they’re willing to spend to receive what the product offers. For example, you wouldn’t pay a lot of money for something that will only bring you harm and not benefit you in any way, correct? Think of it this way, if your body will be better after, it’s an investment, rather than an expense.
After seeing all of the ingredients and benefits that come with Funky Fat Chocs, you can make a decision as to whether the price is worth it for you and your health. Funky Fat chocolates are meant to satisfy your cravings, and keep you full for longer, but also to make you feel better and enjoy your snack guilt-free, with no regrets or compromising your healthy lifestyle. The only way to make it is by using 100% organic and clean ingredients and by removing everything that can be harmful to your overall health, such as sugar, soy, fillers, or unnecessary, artificial ingredients.
Quality foods are usually more expensive and there is a reason for that. Next time you're eating a cheap sugary chocolate bar, please check the ingredients and ask yourself:
- How will I feel after eating this?
- Is my body benefiting from it?
- Will it prejudice my health in any way?
- Is it really what my body deserves
Your body deserves the best. You deserve the best.
