Unless it's got some weird ingredients, if it's just cocoa powder, it's paleo.

I don't mean to be flip, but why not consume it? The issue isn't whether it's "paleo", I would think, but (1) what the ingredients are (I'm assuming it's unsweetened, but maybe there are other content challenges); and (2) how much you plan to consume; which relates to (3) whether you want to be low carb...

Whether it's paleo or not I don't think it's really the most important, let alone the only thing to consider, what counts in the end if it suits your health and performance based on your personal context. And that, we cannot know so your question is one that cannot have a clear answer. As for the ingredients per ser, I'd say that don't look too bad, at least are better than most junk. Cocoa, coconut oil and honey... they all three have pretty good properties. But again, they have some that might be not that good, and whether you can be ok with them or do bad depends on your context, timing, other meals during the day, sensitivities and a lot more things...

I'd say that if you feel fine on a consistent basis over time having that meal, and your labs look decent... it might be OK.
