Coconut water brand Vita Coco has released Choc-o-lot, a chocolate drink that is dairy-free, vegan and made with responsibly sourced coconuts.
Containing less than 100 calories, Choc-o-lot is rich in potassium and immune-supporting vitamin C. The company says its new beverage is designed “to beat that afternoon slump”.
Registered nutrition consultant Jenna Hope said: “Start to feel your energy levels drop throughout the day? We’ve all been there. The 3pm slump is commonly experienced by so many of us for a number of reasons; there is an element of our circadian rhythm which causes us to feel tired in the afternoon, high levels of stress and what we eat for lunch can play a huge role in your energy levels later on in the day.
She continued: “A lunch that is rich in sugar and low in protein and fibre may give you that quick energy high you’re looking for, but leave you suffering a subsequent afternoon crash”.
Choc-o-lot is now available in selected Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and Co-op stores across the UK, with plans to roll out to other supermarkets nationwide. RRP £3.75 for one litre, also available in 330ml cartons.
