When it comes to chocolates I personally find it hard to find a really good vegan/gluten free chocolate. When Yes Cacao send me their cute, little chocolate bars I was rather skeptical, especially when I was checking the ingredients. The mix of ingredients seemed to be far away perfect from what I would like in my chocolate. But….. Yes, there is this “but” to the story.
“Dirty. Next Level Chocolate. Grounding.” – INGREDIENTS (organic): Cacao, Coconut Palm Sugar, Sundried Cane Juice Crystals, Lucuma, Coconut Butter, Maca, Mesquite, Reishi, Vanilla, Shilajit, Tulsi, Gynostemma, Himalayan Salt, Fennel, Peppermint. When I opened this little bar I loved the smell of the chocolate. It is something magical in it. After my first bite I knew this is My chocolate. I loved and enjoyed each bite. Mix of all ingredients is just so perfect and interesting at the same time.
“Karma Mellowl. Golden Chocoalte. Brain Food.” -INGREDIENTS (organic): Cacao, Lucuma, Sundried Cane Juice Crystals, Coconut Palm Sugar, Maca, Mesquite, Yacon, Vanilla, Lion’s Mane, Ginko, Bacopa, Turmeric, Coriander, Pine Pollen, Cinnamon, Almond Oil, English Toffee Stevia, Gynostemma, Eye Ens Spagyric, Himalayan Salt. This is sweeter than previous one. It contains english toffee stevia, so maybe it gives this extra sweetens. It is called “golden chocoalte” and it does have golden color. This one was my least favorite.
“Gaba Baba. Next Level Chocolate. Meditation.” – INGREDIENTS (organic): Cacao, Lucuma, Coconut Palm Sugar, Sundried Cane Juice Crystals, Kava, Gaba Extract, Vanilla Bean, Turmeric, Coriander, Blue Lotus Spagyric, Himalayan Salt. It is very close to dark chocolate in taste. The flavor is rich and creamy. It actually relaxes you when you eat it. Loved it.
Yes Cacao chocolates are raw, not roasted, soy,dairy and gluten free and they don’t contain refined sugar. In addition, they contain “functional medicine” in the form of herbs, extracts and other super-foods, which make those bars so special and unusual. As the Yes Cacao says they are “Next Level Chocolate”.
I love everything about those bars. The only con is they are quite small bars for quite high price. (But definitely worth spending those extra bugs).
Those chocolates should be prescribed as a medicine in doctor offices. Dirty one in the morning, Karma Mellowl in the afternoon and Gaba Baba before bed time. Addiction guaranteed. 😉
