Agami Superfoods: Peppermint and Yacon 77%

August 2, 2014

I like buying weird items on sale sometimes. This Agami Superfoods bar is no exception. I’ve heard all about this yacon sweetener and I finally get a chance to try it? I’ll fork over the $2.50.

Chocolate bar

And here we have it. The chocolate was a bit chalky, likely due to the preservation of the raw nature of the cacao. However, the chocolate did melt on my tongue in a very expected chocolate-bar-y way.

Taste-wise, I was a little disappointed. While the peppermint introduced me to what I expected to be an After Eight chocolate mint, the cacao just ended up tasting flat and not very much like the intriguing complexity of raw cacao. The Ecuadorian cacao tasted very Ghana to me, and the peppermint oil served to actually heighten the earthy taste. The bar was not very sweet, especially for a 77%, which I presume should be attributed to the yacon syrup and “coconut nectar.”

Overall, definitely not a favorite, though the peppermint is a nice touch. Maybe if real sugar was added, the bar would have fared much better.

Just for fun. Ingredients were: raw, organic, single origin, Ecuadorian Arriba Nacional Cacao Paste; raw organic coconut nectar; raw organic single origin Ecuadorian Arriba Nacional Cacao Butter; raw, organic yacon syrup; raw, organic, single origin, Ecuadorian Arriba Nacional cacao powder; raw, organic Peruvian lucuma; raw, organic peppermint oil; raw, organic madagasca vanilla beans.
