Righteously Raw minis

January 29, 2015

I’ve been a big fan of raw chocolates for a while. Not because of the entire raw food mentality, but the fact that raw chocolate tends to be more abundant in flavor per bite than their processed counterparts, albeit quite untamed. When I found the Righteously Raw minis at Whole Foods, I felt it would be fun to try out a variety of raw cacao flavors without breaking the bank, as they were individually wrapped and selling for $0.50. These typically come in huge boxes of 64 pieces online.

Chocolate

I couldn’t handle the synergy spice flavor and had to throw it out. There was way too much spice and I could barely taste the chocolate. Ingredients were organic cacao butter, organic cacao powder, organic raw agave, coconut oil, organic vanilla bean powder, organic cinnamon, organic lucuma powder, cayenne powder, aji panca powder.

The 83% dark was standard. Not too much going on. Mostly earthy with a hint of fruitiness. It was also a bit chalky. Ingredients: organic cacao butter, organic cacao powder, organic raw agave, organic coconut oil, organic vanilla bean powder.

Chocolate

The divine mint was my favorite flavor. It had a naturally minty flavor among the earthy tones of the cacao, resulting in a globally beautiful taste. Ingredients: organic cacao butter, organic cacao powder, organic raw agave, organic raw coconut oil, organic vanilla bean powder, essential peppermint oil.

The maca was definitely the most interesting of the four. The maca bar is similar to white chocolate in that the only ingredient stemming from the cacao bean was the cacao butter. It had a malty flavor, of which I assume came from the maca and mesquite. I was surprised that there were no sweeteners, since it felt it could have been comparable to a darker milk chocolate bar. This was also the chalkiest of the four. Ingredients were organic cacao butter, organic maca powder, organic mesquite powder, organic vanilla bean powder, salt.
