What makes Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mega Chunks so special
Dessert should be enjoyed by all, and Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mega Chunks are ideal for those who suffer from food allergies or follow a strict diet. These are specially made to be gluten-free and exclude eight of the most common allergens, therefore you won’t find peanuts (or any nuts for that matter), soy, gluten, or dairy in these tasty morsels.

The nutrition behind Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mega Chunks
Because a lot of the traditional ingredients in chocolate are removed, Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mega Chunks is made from three ingredients only:
- Evaporated cane juice: This is what adds in just the right amount of sweetness—it is extracted from pressed sugarcane and then dried.
- Natural chocolate liquor (non-alcoholic): Although it is called “liquor,” the term really just refers to the fact that it is a liquid ingredient. This is produced from cocoa beans that are fermented, dried, roasted, and then separated from their skins. The beans are ground into a paste and then melted to become the liquid. From this step, the fat is then removed.
- Non-dairy cocoa butter: This is the fat that is extracted from ground-up, heated cocoa beans.
The dairy, soy, and other ingredients that often get added to chocolate is left out in Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mega Chunks, giving you an utterly rich, cocoa flavor.
Like any treat, chocolate of all types should only be enjoyed in moderation. Although, semi-sweet chocolate chips could help provide some health benefits due to the high level of antioxidant protection it carries. Semi-sweet chocolate has an ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) of 18.053 for every 100 grams, which means it’s possible to safeguard the body against free radicals when eating it.
Additionally, semi-sweet chocolate contains flavonoids that can help improve the body’s defense against bad cholesterol and prevent clogged arteries. The high levels of compounds known as polyphenols, also help to provide a boost to overall heart health.

These taste so good and it's a great substitute for ordinary chocolate!
These chocolate chunks are a great alternative to Conventional chocolate chips. Way less ingredients and more of what you want... chocolate!
- Kim V
I have never bought anything dairy-free but due to some tests coming up, I needed to avoid dairy for a short time. I was so surprised at how delicious these chocolate chunks are-- I never would have known they do not contain dairy. I've used them for several recipes and they are just great!
Semi-sweet Choc. Mega Chunks
- Nancy Brooks
Only brand I buy
Delicious chocolate chips - love 'em!
These are very good. Addicting, actually. Not sure I'll order more because I can't stop snacking on them! I'm sure they'd be just as good for baking, even though that isn't what I used them for.
Better Than Tollhouse
These are wonderful and will taste great in any chocolate chip recipe. They also melt smoothly just like regular chocolate chips.
Of course they are perfect!!!
These make the best chocolate chip cookies - gluten free paleo chocolate chip cookies! If you want your cookies to look like the ones in the commercials with the big gooey gobs of chocolate, then you need to buy these. And soy free!
I keep these on hand for baking, and snacking. Perfect little treat for the kids (and me).
Enjoy LIfe Chocolate Chunks
Love this stuff. No soy is a big thing for me.
These chunks are so good. I use them to bake and eat by themselves! This is my go-to chocolate chip and the ingredients are wholesome! The taste is great too!
Holy crap these are good
these are so good omg. i thought going vegan i wouldn't be able to eat anything like chocolate but these are amazing. no joke you need to buy these
I chopped most of this up and used it in my dairy free ice cream (made from organic coconut milk), but even on its own, it tastes great!
These chocolates are my favorite afternoon treat and I have a bag on hand at all times!
These Enjoy Life chocolate chunks are so amazing. The taste satisfies any sweet tooth and the ingredients satisfies the desire to limit known allergens from the foods we eat. Highly recommend!
Love these! They were great in baking and my husband likes to grab one or two as a snack. Delicious.
Absolutely don't miss the missing ingredients !! Very tasty and easy for baking. Baking became ever better
My grandkids eat these as snacks, and they are great in baked goods. Only brand I buy.
I eat these by the handul and they add extra deliciousness to baked goods!! Thank you for offering this dairy, soy, egg, & gluten free treat!!
The best chocolate chips
Great for baking & snacking. So tasty and great if you have allergies.
don't understand the price--these are $2.99 at Sprouts
Prefer the semi-sweet mini chips.
The perfect balance of chocolate chip cookies for me is more cookie dough with bits of melted chocolate in every bite. I especially love this brand because it is dairy and soy free.
When I noticed this mega chunk option, I thought I would try and perhaps use less chocolate in every cookie.
While I did use less chocolate in each cookie, the chocolate pieces did not melt through and were still so large that the bitterness was more present in every bite. The mini chips don't provide that intensity so I rather stick with those moving forward.
Chocolate Chip Substitute for Baking
These chunks are amazing! Gluten-Free so that I can use them in baking and non-GMO too! I am also very very happy that they do not have dairy in them. These chunks are LRG- by the way.
My only dissatisfaction is that I eat them by the hand which is no fun. I only was able to back with these once before I had to order more. They are a great substitute for any chocolate chip or M&M.
- Cedric Hicks
Great soy-free chocolate!
These are a great chocolate substitute! I use these to bake for my allergic daughter but the entire family loves the way they taste too! They are completely comparable to store brand chocolates, such as Nestle and Hershey's but it doesn't come with all the junk that those do. Regardless of allergens, I definitely recommend switching to these!
- J. Perkins
The best chocolate chip chunks and mini choc chips period end of sentence!!! Oh and excellent price, I'm a price stalker!
I absolutely love these. I use the big chocolate chunks in my almond flour brownies - the best! Thrive has it at a great price compared to my local grocer.
This is a more a customer service review than a chocolate review. But, it's important to share, I think!
I ordered a bag of these chips last week. As soon as the order was placed I realized how foolish that was. I mean, who orders chocolate to be delivered to AZ in the summer? Oh well, I thought. I'll just re-solidify and chop the mass by hand when the time comes.
My order arrived today and the chips were separately packaged with an ice pack! Everything was warm (it IS summer in AZ), but the chips were not melted into one mass. Great job, Thrive!
I prefer dark chocolate but have heard good things about these chips and chunks. They are very tasty and I like the clean ingredients. They are good on their own for a little snack and also in gluten free baking.
When the recipe calls for it
I am not a big fan of semi-sweet chocolate. Just like dark chocolate it's a bit bitter for my taste. However, sometimes a recipe calls for them and there just isn't any way to get around it.
This is the best choice for healthy and allergy free chocolate that can be used for baking in the kitchen. It melts perfectly.
- S. Tower
Make it great
These delicious chunks will make any of your chocolate baked goods taste divine. No soy means there is no GMO worry. No gluten means no harsh stomach cramps.
These are great and they work perfectly in many of my baking recipes (even ones that don't call for chocolate). One bag of these in your kitchen and you'll be hooked.
- Jon Hesle
Favorite chocolate chunks
Dairy free, nut free and gluten free- these chocolate chunks have it all. They are my first choice for baking and I use them in a ton of instances.
They work great melted in brownies. I like them in cookies. They are a little too bitter/sweet for eating alone, but they do taste pretty good when used for homemade hot chocolate!
- Eva M
When I first was diagnosed with a soy food allergy, I was astonished at the number of foods that contain some form of soy.
Until Enjoy Life, I thought I might never be able to have chocolate again. I had to eliminate soy from my diet. I was so sad! These Mega Chunks are the most delicious chocolate I've had in a very long time. I bake with them, add to non-dairy ice cream, pancakes and melt for other treats like strawberries and bananas.
My local grocer carries this brand, but I was shocked at the price. Again, I thought I would never have delicious chocolate, ever. Thank you Thrive for this wonderful, dairy and soy free chocolate product!
- Marlon Marsh
I've been doing some holiday baking, and these chocolate chips have been perfect! One of my guests has an intense allergy to MSG, so it's been a hassle to find ingredients to work for my baking. (Good thing I love her!) These have been fantastic for my chocolate chip cookies. I tried some, and I loved it! I wanted to make sure it wasn't just me, so without telling them, I let a couple of my friends beta-test these before my big event. They love it too! Looks like I'm going to have chocolate chip cookies my friend can eat this year!
Enjoy Live's been in my household for a few years. I've used the mini chips for cooking, and wanted to see if the upgrade to chunks was worth it. I wasn't really planning on cooking with the chunks as they seemed rather big, but snacking is definitely something I was into since I loved the mini chips already.
Well they taste good, but they seem slightly more bitter than the mini chips. I still like the natural, healthy ingredients, but I prefer the more subtle flavor of the mini chips. These are good, though, just taste more like dark chocolate than I wanted.
- Solange Modero
Good, but small chips work better
I first tried the Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips when I was pregnant with my first child. They were a great treat that didn't have soy or dairy, both of which I can't tolerate.
So when the chunks came out, I gave it a try. They're not bad, but maybe a little too big, unless you're only planning on snacking on them. For cooking, they're a bit unwieldy, and more difficult to knead into dough. But if that's not a big thing for you, these chips do taste good.
- Shane Martos
Perfect For Cookies and Pancakes
My four year-old daughter can't eat gluten or dairy, and I like to make her treats. So I decided to buy these chips to see if they were any good.
She couldn't taste the difference between these and the store-bought brand that she used to be able to eat. She loves the big chunks and cookies and sprinkled over waffles in the morning. Great find!
- Sally M.
Soy Free and Yummy
I'm allergic to all soy, so I have to be very careful when I'm trying to eat healthy. But I love cookies and cakes, so my wife thought this would be a good buy.
These are ideal for chocolate chip cookies. They don't melt into sludge when baked, and they taste as good as the regular stuff, but they're soy free, dairy free and gluten-free. My wife's wheat chocolate chip cookies are so much better with these. I'll put them up on a taste test against Nestle or those other brands any day.
- Sergio Mendez
Another win for Enjoy Life!
I have not yet been disappointed by Enjoy Life products. These semi-sweet chocolate chunks put Hershey's to shame. These chunks make eating chocolate chunk cookies feel like healthy eating.
Great flavor, I used these in many things- from baking to smoothies and even in my trail mix I take when I go hiking. They are also the only chocolate chunks my kids will eat!
- Chris Show
As a chocoholic and avid baker with a soy-allergic stepdaughter, I've been on the hunt for chocolate chips that don't have soy lecithin. Unsurprisingly, she doesn't like super-dark chocolate, so we were thrilled to find these chips! They're great in cookies and taste just like the real thing.
