I recently discovered an amazing new chocolate, and am delighted to share with you my review today. During my weekly wholefoods shop, I discovered Loving Earth, who make organic, raw vegan chocolate. Excitedly I bought two to try: Salted Caramel Swayzee and Very Buck ‘n Berry.
These chocolates are made with high quality, certified organic and certified fair trade ingredients. This includes cacao made with virgin cacao butter & raw cacao beans, coconut nectar, coconut oil and pink lake salt.
Salted Caramel Swayzee contains 50% cacao, and contains raw agave nectar, coconut, raw cashews, carob powder and cinnamon. With salted caramel chocolate on top of a dark truffle layer, it’s sweet in a soft, subtle way that’s not overpowering. The texture is super smooth and creamy.
Very Buck ‘n Berry contains 30% cacao, along with raw creamed hazelnuts, cranberries, and raw activated buckwheat. It’s my favourite of the two – it’s sweeter and richer, and I love the hint of tangy cranberry and crunchy buckwheat!
I’ve been enjoying these as guilt-free treats and absolutely love the taste and texture. Not only are these chocolates delicious and decadent, compared to artificial chocolates, they’re more rich and satisfying. It’s also great to know that these chocolates give back through fair trade, and support Loving Earth’s philosophy of Healthy – Sustainable – Fair.
