nicobella vegan organic dark chocolate truffles take the concept of the decadent truffle to a new level. By replacing the cream and sugar*, that is typically in the ganache center, with vegan natural ingredients and infusing each truffle with super rich antioxidant foods, such as blueberries, green tea, sunflower seed butter, and pumpkin, there is finally something available for the health conscious individual that is lower in fat and sugar, good for the body AND taste decadent. While nicobella's intention is not to make any claims, we want to inform you of the potential benefits of our ingredients (listed below) and the thought process behind creating our truffles. Please enjoy them as part of your well balanced diet. *Please note that the 70% dark chocolate that we use contains organic cane sugar and to sweeten the ganache we use either organic raw agave nectar or organic brown rice syrup.
*A portion of all nicobella profits is donated to either The Humane Society of the United States or Noah's Ark of Locust Grove, GA, our two favorite organizations.
**Our packaging is FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) Certified helping to save trees.
Freshly ground walnuts and flaxseed, abundant sources of omega-3 fatty acids, are mixed with natural brown rice sweetener and organic and Fair Trade 70% dark chocolate making this rich truffle a perfect creation of nutty goodness.
Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, walnuts and flaxseeds help to maintain cell membrane integrity and keep the skin hydrated. Omega-3 fatty acids may also contribute to lowering the risk of heart disease by decreasing inflammation, triglycerides and blood pressure. They have also been shown to help with depression and anxiety.
Earthy and antioxidant-rich matcha green tea gets a lift from energizing ginger to awaken the senses while an organic and Fair Trade 70% dark chocolate coating satisfies your sweet tooth.
Is there anything green tea can’t do? It contains unique antioxidants such as polyphenols, catechins and EGCG, which have been shown to fight cancer, protect the heart, regulate blood sugar, reduce blood pressure, enhance the immune system, increase metabolism and prevent gum disease. Ginger has been used for years to help with digestive issues and nausea. It is also used in many decongestants for its beneficial effects on colds.
A signature truffle for the chocolate purist that provides a super charged antioxidant ganache with a hint of vanilla that is rich, decadent and melts in your mouth. Made with organic and Fair Trade 70% dark chocolate.
Flavonol-rich dark chocolate has been shown to reduce blood pressure and improve circulation, which may help to improve skin texture, thickness and hydration (have you seen the increase in chocolate facials lately?). Cocoa is one of the most concentrated sources of bioflavonoid antioxidants available in our diet.
Naturally sweet, high antioxidant blueberries combined with organic and Fair Trade 70% dark chocolate create a silky ganache topped with toasted almond making a fruity truffle with a hint of sweet nut.
Blueberries are super high in antioxidants, including vitamin C, which helps the body produce collagen, a vital anti-aging protein. The antioxidants in blueberries also increase the skin’s cell renewal rate, normalize cell growth and stimulate blood flow-all fabulous for ageless skin!

It’s also a good source of B vitamins and selenium, which may also promote good skin quality and elasticity.
