    Delicious Raw Chocolate Discovery!

    Primal Fuel
    I went into Whole Paycheck to get some lunch and found Stirs The SOUL Enchanted Chocolate Mousse in a 2.5 cup. It contains hemp milk, coconut milk, cacao, agave, vanilla bean, and sea salt. They do not have the nutrition info on their website yet, but one of the owners says they will be posting it soon.

    After talking to him a bit, I went back in and got some of the chocolate bars (spiced chai, lavender, cayenne cinnamon, and coconut). They are sweetened with agave, but on some they are trying out date as a sweetener. Raw 74-84% chocolate, no dairy, about 4 carbs in a one ounce bar.
    I tried a square of the cayenne cinnamon--rich, delicious and spicy! Not cheap, but if you're going to have chocolate, have the best--aren't you worth it?

    The other neat thing is they are local and not too far from my house. I am considering offering my services as a taste tester for free in the interest of science and research.

    I have no connection with this company other than the possibility of being enamoured of their product.

    I once went on a kinda indulgent shopping rampage online and ordered a whole ton of different gourmet chocolates from places all over the world. I liked their's the best. I make my own chocolate snacks now and although mine don't taste quite as good, I do prefer to eat stuff I've made myself.

    Pity about the agave

    I took a quick look on their website...the nutrition facts are posted for the chocolate, but seem a little off...they state 4g of carbs of which 4g is fiber and 5g is sugar. Neat trick!

    Hmmm, I missed that math error.
    They did say they are trying whole ground date as a sweetener due to the agave debate.

    Agave is basically Higher Fructose Corn Syrup.

    And hemp milk is full of rancid omega-6 oil. Stay away from confectionary
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    Considering I am at 98%/2%, I think I'll risk a bit of agave/hemp milk/date once in a while in exchange for that cinnamon cayenne bar.
