What You Should Know
Rocket Chocolate is a caffeinated chocolate. There is an official website for the product, but the sales side of the site is clearly focused on bulk orders. You can order quantities of 50, 100, 500, 600 or more. There is one smaller size available if you want to order the Rocket Chocolate drink cup for $15. With that drink cup you get your choice of 15 Rocket Chocolates
Information on Rocket Chocolates is minimal on the official website. There is no nutritional information or ingredient lists for any of the flavors. We were able to find the ingredients in the chocolate on an energy website. There are nine flavors of Rocket Chocolate to choose from.
List of Ingredients
- Cocoa Butter
- Whole Milk
- Coconut Oil
- Natural Flavor
- Artificial Flavor
The ingredient list is rather boring – chocolate and caffeine. What we do find interesting is the caffeine amount in Rocket Chocolates. According to a study paid for by Vroom Foods- Rocket Chocolates contain only 42 mg of caffeine, but the company behind the chocolates claim it contains 150 mg of caffeine, according to one report. Vroom Foods is the brain-child of Jason Kensey. He started with Foosh Mints and then added a caffeinated chocolate candy. His candy contains much more than 42 mg of caffeine per serving.
The lack of nutritional information means we cannot suggest this product to dieters. The chocolate is clearly not low sugar or sugar free, so all the calories are simple carbohydrates. There is no real nutritional value to sugar calories. Chocolate is considered a healthy part of many weight loss diets, but consuming a huge bunch of chocolate calories is not going to help a dieter keep weight under control.
- Multiple flavors are available.
- Contains caffeine.
- May taste fantastic.
- Ingredient lists are not available on the official website.
Caffeine is a part of most weight loss supplements, but caffeinated chocolates are in a completely different category. This product could have a great impact on energy and give then dieter a little taste of chocolate without wrecking the diet, but we would have no way of knowing that based on the information on the Rocket Chocolate website. The ingredients were pulled from an outside website and the total caffeine could range from 42 to 150 mg per piece.
Taking caffeine can increase metabolism, but that increase is not going to be enough to offset the caloric impact of the Rocket Chocolate product without diet and exercise. If you want to add a caffeinated chocolate to your diet you may want to choose one that offers more information than simply a list of flavors.
