Review: The Raw Chocolate Company + Chocolate Beet Muffin Recipe!

I was so thankful to win a recipe giveaway from a recipe contest and received products from the Raw Chocolate Company!

I hadn’t heard of them before because they are based out of the UK but I’m sure glad I did ! You can’t beat the fact that their products are not only vegan but also fair trade, organic and soy-free! Oh yeah, and insanely delicious!

I was sent three products along with a catalog which I may or may not have ordered products from because they’re just too good!

The first was dark chocolate raisins. I’m not a huge raisin fan but I mean chocolate is something that you can’t help but enjoy! All in all they were pretty good but I probably won’t buy them again simply because of the raisins.

The second was their dark chocolate bar and boy was this ever delicious. I’m a huge dark chocolate fan and the darker and more bitter the better. I find their chocolate defiantly has a distinct taste but it’s really good to say the least. The size of the bar was disappointing because it was so small , but that’s what chocolate does to you; leaves you wanting more!

Then I got to my bag of hemp seeds which once again was a new food I hadn’t tried before. I wasn’t exactly sure what to do at first with them at first so I first started topping my smoothie bowls with them. Why hemp seeds?

  • Full of complete protein
  • Contain all of the essential amino acids our bodies require
  • They are so versatile! Add them to yogurt, oatmeal, on top of salads, you name it!
