New Chocolate: Righteously Raw
Raw, Organic, Kosher, Vegan, Nut/Gluten/Soy/Milk free, and tastes
good at that!
* Why Raw? Well, to begin with, I personnaly prefer the
taste of raw chocolate to the roasted one. This brand has no refined sugar either and uses agave nectar instead. This does
not distract your taste buds from the joy ride that 80-90% chocolate provides:)
* Chocolate (theobroma cacao) is one of the leading antioxidant
rich substances on the planet known today. It is also an abundant source of minerals like iron and magnesium. When the cacao
beans are roasted, these nutritional elements are damaged and may not be absorbed by the body at their full potential.
* Righteously Raw Chocolates are based in sunny California,
and their four flavors are:
Goji Berry - not only delishious, but good for your energy level and eyesight.
Acai Berry - literally superfood, known as having the highest level of antioxidants of
Caramel bar - no milk here either, but a decadent mix of sub-tropical lucuma fruit and dates.
Maca Bar - a taste you've never experienced before (unless you are familiar with the
Maca root, a super-food found in the high Andes). Maca is rich in calcium, magnesium, and iron and is also known for
it’s ability to increase strength, rebuild a weak immune system, and enhance libido. Yes!
often the case, best finds are Customer's suggestions.
These delightful caramel creations are Seattle's own and [according to NBC's
Inside the Obama White House], the President's favorites.
The collection features award-winning Gray Sea Salt dark Chocolate
and Smoked Salt Milk Chocolate Caramels. These are a harmonious blend of complex flavors of organic
ingredients - rich smooth chocolate, soft buttery caramel and the unexpected boldness of the gray and smoked salt.
T-SPOT also carries Fran's chocolate covered Ginger and Almond Trios, and
we have plans to add Fran's bars to our extensive assortment.

John Kelly's Fudge Truffles from Los Angeles
- with sea salt!
These little pillows of goodness won the Gold Award for Outstanding Chocolate this
year, and deservingly so. Sea salt seems to be the latest trend in gourmet chocolate, and Oh Man, am I glad it is! Salt-less
flavors we have include Walnut, Mint, Raspberry, Orange and more.
All of these are just dark, not flavored, but the cacao beans, like wine grapes,
have inherent aromatic properties: citrus, fruity, nutty etc. I have really enjoyed tasting and comparing them, and I CAN
taste the difference!

Absolute favorite of everyone working at T-SPOT:
ASKINOSIE pure dark Chocolate
And when we say pure we mean it. Just count the ingredients:
Cocoa beans - one; Cocoa Butter - two; Cane juice [a.k.a. sugar] - three. And that is IT.
No soy lecitin to emulcify, no vanilla to distract you from the point. And the point
is: There is no better chocolate as far as I am concerned.
The bars range from 70% to 75% to 77% darkness and are most definitely single origin,
organic and fair trade.
