I´m dreaming of a healthy … Christmas treat
Especially raw chocolate can be a great little booster for your immune system! Did you know that cacao can contain important minerals, vitamins and flavanols? Flavanols are for example a type of antioxidant and they are the reason that ancient cultures prescribed cacao to treat fatigue, fever or to simply stimulate the nervous system. That´s why we wanted to combine the power of raw chocolate with all the familiar Christmas aroma’s and tastes in chocolate, to create delicious and healthy Christmas treats for you!
Back at the beginning of 2021, we worked on a new Winter Limited Edition flavour and our chocolatier William surprised us during this process almost every week with new exciting creations. By the way: pine needles and raw chocolate are not a good combination, William did try that and his stomach didn't like the idea at all. 😉
So he invented a completely new creation combining the typical sweets you can find on a Christmas market with our delicious raw chocolate from Ecuador and Peru. As an addition to our new vegan m♥lk range, just arrived from our Christmas bakery in Heerhugowaard:
Our new Almond Crunch & Cinnamon
Our first Christmas vegan m♥lk raw chocolate with crunchy almond pieces and cinnamon notes. Because Christmas chocolate is way better without milk!
As we also want to have a white Christmas still in 2051 and animal welfare is key for us, we take responsibility by making our raw chocolates 100% vegan since the beginning. But how to create this soft and melting feeling you normally have with milk chocolate? With rice drink! As rice drink is made by mixing mostly brown rice with water, it is free of saturated fats and cholesterol. Since rice drink is naturally a little sweeter than other dairy alternatives, it is perfect for making slightly milder and sweeter Christmas chocolates.
You had the chance to try the Winter Limited Editions last year? Well, one of your lovers is back:
The delicious Winter Spice & Mandarin
We've received so many messages about how you fell in love with this tasty dark chocolate, so we decided to bring it back to your organic store this year! Did you know that mandarins are also real health boosters? They are full of healthy elements and minerals such as calcium. The fruit acid in mandarins also helps the body to absorb the nutrients contained in the fruit more quickly. By the way, the high vitamin c content in mandarin is beneficial for healthy and smooth skin as well as for a strong immune system.
With 76% of the best raw cacao from Direct Trade and 100% organic ingredients, you can sit back, forget melting polar ice caps for a moment and experience pure goodness.
These two Winter Limited Editions are available in your organic store only for a few weeks!
