Recently, I bought a bag of raw unsweetened cacao nibs! Nearly every vegan blog talked about it. I tried & tested it & it wasn’t my thing at all: too bitter!
So, I read a while ago, that there are also coconut palm nectar sweetened raw cacao nibs. Yeah, raw! I thought I should try them. A few day ago, I went to a superb organic shop in the center of Antwerp & found these raw & organic coconut nectar sweetened cacao nibs.
They are truly raw, cold-processed cacao sweet nibs. They are from the brand: Big Tree farms. They say on their website:
We take our truly raw cacao nibs and dip them in our coconut flower blossom nectar, which makes food that is like no other snack you have ever had! Take our unsweetened nibs and dip them in coconut flower blossom nectar and what do you get? Yup… the best snack in the world. (I completely agree )
- Coconut Flower Blossom Nectar Sweetened – mm slightly sweetened.
- Truly Raw!
- Never been heated above 118 F / 46 C° – PROMISE!
- Super high in Antioxidants!
- Super high in anandamide, the bliss chemical= This natural chemical makes the body feel blissful, excited & alert too,..Just like falling in love!
- Mild flavor makes it easy eating in anything.
- Simply THE BEST Truly Raw Cacao Beans for snacking.
- is organic too!
This is chocolate at its best. It doesn’t melt, easily portable, tastes amazing, energy boosting, your heart is happy, your blood is happy, your brain is happy, your soul is happy. ( I totally agree here too; )
I know they are so right! I am testing out new recipes on how to use them best! Recipes are coming later on,…;) Check out my blog often!
This box of 269 gr costed me: 9.95 €
In this lovely organic food shop in the center of Antwerp, Natuurhuis, I also bought 2 vegan chocolate bars that are sweetened with coconut sugar! They each costed me: 2.80€. By know, you know that coconut sugar is my favourite sugar to use! I tried these 2 varieties:
1. Ombar dark raw chocolate infused with cranberries & mandarin!
Probiotic Strawberry? This sounds a bit weird, hey? Dark 60% Ecuadorian raw chocolate, infused with delicious freeze-dried strawberry powder and enriched with probiotic healthy bacteria. Ooh yeah!
cocoa mass*, coconut sugar*, coconut butter*, freeze-dried strawberry powder* (6%), cocoa butter*, bifidobacterium lactic (0.35%). *certified organic./ at least 60% cacao solids.
This chocolate bar of 38 gr is also another grand & pretty tasty dark raw chocolate bar. This bar is also vegan! This bar was my favourite one. It is all about the flavours! You can really taste the strawberries in here! And you end up with a deep, warm dark chocolate flavour! Price: 2.80 €. So good! Yummy yum, Sophie approved here!
3. Vegan , hand-moulded & organic Rhokost chocolate: cashew chocolate
This is a vegan, organic & hand-moulded chocolate bar with cashews! I bought this online through a raw living sunfoodliving-webshop , here in Belgium. This bar is 70 gr & is from German origin. This has no soya in it. It is also vegan & gluten-free! This chocolate is made from un-roasted, raw & organic cacao beans. This chocolate & his ingredients are produced below 42°C in order to keep their nutrients.
cacao butter, cacao powder, cashew nuts, agave syrup, lucuma powder & coconut powder. All ingredients are organic too.
This is a more darker & not sweet chocolate bar at all! If you love that: that’s great! My husband loved it too. I didn’t love it that much. It is too bitter for me. You know, normally I am a milk chocolate lover. I loved the 2 raw chocolate bars above, much more! This is a dark chocolate bar, for the cashew lover! It costed me: 4.95 €
Keep it in a dry dark place below 22°C, but not in the fridge.
