Quick question for you! Do you already follow me on Facebook and Twitter? It’s been awhile since I’ve asked. I share a lot more little things on there than I’m able to blog about, and I don’t want you to miss out! In just the last few days, I announced my upcoming guest-blogging stint for Rose Pedals, showed off some mouthwatering homemade cinnamon rolls, posted a recipe for a tasty Malty Carob-Banana Power Shake, and more. I’m also able to share more personal thoughts, musings, and updates (like cookbook progress and wedding plans!) on there than I’m able to fit in here on the blog. So if you don’t already, follow me!
Today’s review post features one of the world’s most beloved foods: chocolate! I recently got the opportunity to sample a variety pack of Lulu’s Chocolate—a new-to-me company.
Lulu’s Chocolate is all organic, raw, vegan, gluten-free, fair trade, and low glycemic (thanks to the use of coconut sugar). That’s quite a résumé!
Their six-bar sampler pack provided me with an array of flavors to taste-test: Sedona Spice (with Saigon cinnamon and Southwest heat), Maca Love (containing an impressive 7,500 milligrams of maca powder per bar), Raw Love (with pure vanilla bean), Smoked Sea Salt Almond (made with organic, sprouted raw almonds), Aztec Crunch (with raw cacao nibs), and Chocolate Maca Chunk (containing 5,600 milligrams of maca). The bars range in cacao content from 50% to 78%.
I already knew I’d love the vanilla- and maca-containing bars, but what surprised me was just how much I adored the other varieties as well. The Aztec Crunch was positively PACKED with cacao nibs…
…and the Smoked Sea Salt Almond – which, to be honest, I was wary of at first, as I’m not usually a big fan of smoky flavors – was the most fragrant chocolate I’ve ever eaten. The almonds were just smoky (and salty) enough, and the scent of them lingered in my living room for literally hours after Matt and I had finished the bar.
I was delighted to discover that the Chocolate Maca Chunk bar was “blonde”—i.e. caramelized-white-chocolate-esque, with huge chunks of dark chocolate studding the underside. The malty maca flavor paired perfectly with the lighter-flavored chocolate.
Now that I’ve got you sufficiently intrigued by Lulu’s Chocolate, I’m happy to announce the absolute steal of a deal available TODAY on VeganCuts.com. Right now, you can get Lulu’s Double Lovepack – consisting of 12 bars total, 2 bars of each of the six varieties you saw above – for just $24. That’s a $40 value! Head on over to Vegan Cuts to take advantage of that discount and grab your share of this divine raw vegan chocolate while you can.
