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.
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.
