- A simple little snack can be two or three small square of super-dark chocolate. Remember to read the label to see that it has a minimum of 70 – 75% of cocoa… if it says that it is less that 70% it is usually contains too much sugar. In addition to dark chocolate sold in regular stores, ProGrade sells a good snack that is not only delicious, but it is 100% organic.
