Well Naturally No Sugar Added Chocolate is all indulgence without the guilt. Put simply, we take the bad stuff out (sugar) and replace it with the good stuff: stevia, a natural plant-based sweetener. The end result? Real milk and dark 70% cocoa chocolate, made just as delicious – without the excess sugar. Well Naturally is available in a variety of flavours at New World, Countdown and selected independent retailers nationwide.
