Good Cacao

Ah Chocolate
Delicious, divine, sensual. The science is behind it, but whoever wrote"Benefits outweigh risks" was definitely written by someone who agrees with what my boyfriend said : "women have a higher tolerance for chocolate than men." yes, the words tolerance and chocolate were used in the same sentence...
tell that to Naveen Sinha-chocolate scientist extraordinaire. Or my friend Gina who NEEDS to open a wine and chocolate shop asap.
After a day of work at Beacon Hill Chocolates Gina brought over a bar of Good Cacao to a wine + talk night, and we devoured it up.
not only was it a delicious bar, but as an "organic superfood" what's there to be hating on?
this Lemon Ginger bar is vegan, gluten free, non gmo, fair trade conscious, with no preservativies, no additives, all in biodradable packaging-whew I need to take a breath! It also has probiotics, "antioxidant oils" and phytoplankton. Who knew you needed that, but why the heck not, right?? And i'm so glad this is not your run-of-the-mill salt, but instead "170 million year old Jurassic Sea Salt." yup, this salt was chillin with mad dinosaurs.

yea that's a lot of extra words and fluff. But hey-it tasted delicious, and couldn't be bad for you, so why not??

and while we're on the subject, next time you're in New York City, swing by CocoaV on 9th Ave and 15th street, and try one of their vegan truffles.
One taste of their peanutbutter cup and you'll swear off Reese's for life.
I know it's getting warm out, but be sure to get their vegan hot chocolate too.
I like mine spicy, extra dark, and with a shot of espresso. I like most things that way.

So Happy Friday, and I hope you get to enjoy a good piece of chocolate today!

What's your favorite type or brand of chocolate?

You win the award for using "mad dinosaurs" in a blog post about food. :-)

Great post - Love me some chocolate. I just need a little square of dark chocolate after dinner and I'm good for the night.
Choco-love dark preferred, but I'm open to others :)
