Love is in the air for Valentine’s Day, but don’t get fooled by processed, white sugar laden “goodies” that are chock-full of bleaching agents, hydrogenated trans-fats, artificial flavors, and Sodium Metabisulfites (processed shrimp pieces). Show some real love with real, raw chocolate!
And if you want to get creative, we’ve got some sexy recipes to indulge your sweetheart, homemade style!
The fact is that chocolate doesn’t have to be junk food; when raw and minimally processed, it’s actually a superfood. Cacao is extraordinarily rich in antioxidants which work to support the immune system.1 It’s also bursting with vitamins A & C, magnesium, potassium, manganese, zinc, and copper. Plus energy-boosting cacao is known to contain resveratrol, which can protect your brain and nervous system, and increase longevity.2

Customer Review – Caramel Cacao Truffle Bar
“YUM. Nice smooth chocolate. You can really taste the cacao butter. This combination really makes a delicious caramel flavor with a nice texture.” – Marissa
“I love this fortified SuperChoc bar and really like Gnosis chocolates in general. They are some of the healthiest chocolates out there, and full of healthy ingredients that push some particular varieties into the medicinal chocolate category. SuperChoc is perhaps my favorite bar.” – Elizabeth

Customer Reviews – Chocolate Hazelnut Spread
“Excellent! I just opened my first jar of this spread and it is decadent! The texture reminds me of fudge, but it is not overwhelmingly sweet or heavy. Delicious, and only contains 3 ingredients! I ate it with a spoon but will be trying it out with fresh strawberries soon.” – Sam
“I’ve been wanting something like this for a long time. I always crave “sweet” in the morning, and usually make some sort of fruit smoothie or juice, but this is a welcome way to “shake it up”. I’ve been putting it on bananas, mostly, but today I had some in a little dish that I kept dipping dried apricots in. So yum.” – Melissa
Customer Review – Almond Crunch Spread
“Love, love, love this product! I suppose you could spread it on something, but a spoonful now and then works for me! Honestly, I could have just sat down with the jar, and a spoon, and finished it off, but then it would have been gone! So, I rationed myself. I might try it on an apple, just to see…” – Deborah
Customer Review – Go Raw Real Live Chocolate
“These chocolate squares are very natural tasting, and the texture is soft and firm rather than hard and snappy. They taste very homemade and barely sweetened. So glad to see such a huge variety of healthy ingredients available here, because the more raw chocolates I try, the more I want to try making my own. Loving Sunfood.” – Elizabeth
