Mail Order Raw Chocolate from Cloud 9

A quick review for Day 8 of Vegan MoFo:

I’m a sucker for deals, so when an offer hit the web for a sample of vegan raw chocolate from Cloud 9, I had to get it.  I’ve calmed down with purchasing discounted goods a lot since this deal went out.  For awhile there, I had more food than I could eat.

I understand the benefits of raw foods, but I just can’t get on board with raw chocolate.  It’s way too bitter for me.  I think I’ve finally learned my lesson to stop ordering it.  I’m thinking that the only way I’d learn to love raw chocolate is if I never ate sweetened foods.  Then maybe my taste buds would find the raw chocolate pleasant.  But, something tells me I won’t be giving up my vegan cakes and ice creams anytime soon.

As for the goods, I only had a very tiny sample of each flavor and then gave the rest away.

The better ones would be the Macadamia/Goji and Cranberry/Pecan, because the sweetness of the fruit helps balance out the bitterness of the chocolate.  I couldn’t handle the bitterness in the Walnut and Original at all.

Clockwise: Original, Walnut, Macadamia/Goji, Cranberry/Pecan

If you like really bitter chocolate, go get some of this.  It has some great nutritional qualities for a candy bar and I hear quite a few people liked it at Natural Products Expo East.
