This bar smells good and tastes lovely. And it has some other advantages too. So if you’re not all about the pure energy, this is the one you have to try. It will #fuelbetter than most energy bars out there.

Veloforte usually #fuelbetter with any of their energy bars. And does it in an extraordinary way. For example, with not so exciting Caffeine, but much better with intriguing Sea Salt, Ginger, Fennel (what a surprise!) or Citrus as one of the ingredients. This time Dates and Cocoa try to add some extra energy to your daily routine. Is this Veloforte CIOCCO bar going to boost your performance after all?

It is. This energy bar smells lovely. There are dates and almonds effortlessly detectable, but I can’t say the same about cocoa. Anyway, that aroma is really nice and inviting. However, it may be not so simple for some to bite into it, as the bar is somewhat toughy. Both, on the outside and inside. Furthermore, it’s also chewy and it sticks to the teeth. So be ready to have a sip or two at hand while eating it. Therefore, I wouldn’t mind if it was much more comfortable to eat. It’s not that bad, but there’s a room for improvement indeed.

By way of contrast, there’s nothing wrong I can say about this Veloforte bar’s taste. All of that, because it’s just delicious.


There are dates (35%), almonds (23%) and cocoa (7%) flavours, all coming from the real and natural ingredients. They are easy to notice and they are satisfyingly sweet, but not oversweet. Also, the flavour of this bar is well balanced, leaving no space for any doubts in this matter. As a result of that, this bar will not only give you an extra boost, but it also will make its way as a sweet treat. Well done.

Do I want another serving after the first one? I would. And it was so close to it. If only it was a bit more comfortable to eat, as I don’t like struggling with my treats. At the end of the day, one serving is OK for me.

When it comes to macros, this bar is not all about energy. A 70g bar delivers 277 kcal, a bit largish 8.8g of fat, an ideal 44.6g of carbs and a bit too much of 5.9g of protein. The ingredients list, although pretty short, could be much better. Although it doesn’t contain palm fat, there’s agave syrup on it.

Can it be a sustainable energy bar on the go? Not actually. But it definitely can be a delicious energy bar on the go. Period.

This Veloforte energy bar fuels better, but not perfectly.


Veloforte CIOCCO Energy Bar

Veloforte CIOCCO Dates Energy Bar is a lovely bar. It smells delicious, it tastes great and the overall experience is pretty good. However, it’s not a perfect energy bar (due to its a bit exaggerated macros) and it contains agave syrup (that is not good for you). Therefore, if you’re all about energy or a really healthy snack, then this one is not for you. But if you want a great taste, then go on – you won’t be disappointed here.

Will I ever go back to this energy bar? Chances are, as it’s a tasty bar. But if it could be a bit more comfortable to eat, it would be one of the best energy bars out there.
