Today is National Chocolate Day and to celebrate I am unwrapping the best chocolate bar that ever existed- read “Giddy Up!” as a prelude to this post.
A Little Bit of Background:
As part of the raw culture, many people believe in raw cacao, or raw chocolate as a superfood for health and vitality. Not to be mistaken for the processed and sugar-laden kin known as cocoa. Here’s the difference…
Among some of the well-known benefits of raw cacao are:
- High in antioxidants
- Decrease risk of cancer
- Alleviate stress and combat depression
- Induce feeling of euphoria
- Improves blood flow and heart function
- Lowers cholesterol
- High in magnesium and other nutrients
Those responsible for my chocolate addiction are the dedicated chocolate-makers over at Giddy Yoyo. This Canadian company have whole-heartedly created a line of raw chocolate bars that are made with love, gratitude, and pure dark chocolate that nourish the body and stimulate the mind to function better. Founders Bridgitte and Mark’s philosophy is that all things good should be tasty but also nutritious. Honing in on the true definition of good, their products are made using quality ingredients that are true to form as intended by nature. These quality ingredients consist of being raw, wild, organic, fairly traded, vegan, and non-GMO. The gifted chocolatiers offer a wide selection of crafty food bars (not to be mistaken for candy) with unique flavours. Among some of these divine creations include, mint, ginger, and spice raw food bars just to name a few.
Made With Love:
Since the cacao itself is raw, it is therefore highly nutritive. Production in this sense makes a huge difference in terms of the taste and healing properties by not altering the raw, original state of the product. Even more impressive, the bars are free of unnecessary fillers such as, refined sugar, dairy, soy, and gluten leaving room only for the best sourced cacao. These admirable attributes make them the most powerful chocolatey treats on the market. Some having as high as 86% dark wild Ecuadorian heirloom cacao, which also happens to be my top pick.
Now that you know how I plan to celebrate today’s awesome holiday, I strongly urge to go and curb your craving with a nutrient-dense vanilla bean and salt bar. It honestly is the perfect combo because it simultaneously satisfies a sweet and salty tooth. Or if you’re feeling a little chilled now that the cold front is here, I suggest you warm up with a bite of their spicy bar. I guarantee you’ll thank me if you do.
