Guittard Extra Dark Baking Chips at Big Lots

I went to my local Big Lots at lunch and they had the Guittard brand Extra Dark Chocolate baking chips for 2.75 a bag (11.5oz). They are 63% cacao and the label says All Natural, non-gmo, peanut free and gluten free. The ingredients are cacoa beans, sugar, sunflower lecithin (really prefer this over soy) and real vanilla.

Nutrition Facts:

Serving size 30 pieces (15g)
Servings per container about 22
Calories 70
Calories from fat 45
Total Fat 5g
Total Carb 8g
Dietary Fiber 2g
Protein 1g

The bag contains 2 cups so thats 132 carbs per bag (22*6) which figures to about 16.5 carbs per 1/4 cup.

They have a really good taste. I bought all they had, going in my freezer. I do use higher cacao percentage bars sometimes in cooking but sometimes I just want a chip and I cannot tolerate any of the sugar-free ones, or at least the ones with maltitol, sorbitol or mannititol. I haven't tried the Lilly's brand but they contain soy lecithin and inulin which I try to avoid.

Hope my Big Lots! has them. I don't visit there often, but I can usually find something of interest! Found an inexpensive yoga mat and a great arm band with sports ear buds for my phone when running.
