This is a vegan dark milk chocolate. It’s proof that we can, sometimes, have it all. It’s a silky, smooth utopian bar that catapults you into peak summer, with lush notes of berries and cream. Made with single origin cacao from Zorzal Cacao, a cacao farm and fermentary located inside a bird sanctuary in the Dominican Republic, and pure shredded coconut. Once referred to by Edible Brooklyn as “an actual dream." Save the wrapper and send it as a postcard.
When Raaka's people make chocolate they're after something that feels the way Raaka sounds: strong, wild, playful, and most of all, different. “Raaka” means “raw” in Finnish. The company does not have any Finish connections or origins, but the cadence of the word captures the essence of their processes and chocolates. The geniuses say that Raaka chocolates are made of unroasted cacao beans, which preserves the bold, bright, and fruitier flavors of the beans. Whatever the case, these chocolates are definitely Raaka-stars in our books and in our tummies.
