ENLIGHTENED DIET: A Truly Ceremonial Chocolate.
Unfortunately, the natural joys of chocolate, as well as its sacred roots, are often lost in candy bars produced with high temperatures, refined sugars, processed milk, stabilizing agents, extra caffeine, and waxes.
If you would like to experience raw chocolate without having to visit an indigenous tribe, consider Gnosis Chocolate. Founder Vanessa A. Barg hand-makes her chocolates without refined sugar, dairy, or caffeine (a whole bar contains less caffeine than a cup of decaf coffee), producing a variety of delectable, flavorful truffles and bars. She considers it "a return to the essence of chocolate."
Not only can you enjoy eating healthier chocolate but you can also feel good about buying it, because Barg donates 10 percent of the $6 to $7 cost per bar to Wolfe's Fruit Tree Planting Foundation, a nonprofit charity dedicated to planting edible, fruitful trees and plants to benefit needy populations and improve the surrounding air, soil, and water.
