IRVINE (CBS) — Guilt-free chocolate with vitamins that help a growing fetus? Yes, please!
Coco Preggers, created by Irvine-based Xan Confections, contains folic acid which prevents birth defects, and DHA, an omega-3 fatty acid that is important to brain development.
The dark chocolates contain 51 calories each and cost about $1.50.
Company officials say the candy is not a replacement for prenatal vitamins or a healthy diet.
Along with Coco Preggers, Xan is shipping a line of chocolates marketed as having heart, immunity and brain boosting properties. There is also a variety called Coco PMS.
Xan chocolates are sold at Southern California Whole Foods and Bristol Farms.
