Welcome to Day #2 of Raw Chocolate Theme Week.
Today's bar has a long name. The rawmio Organic Gourmet Salted Coconut Caramel and Crushed Cashew Raw Chocolate Bark (bar) was manufactured by Windy City Organics, LLC (Northbrook, IL).
The 70% cacao raw, stone-ground dark chocolate base was made from raw Peruvian cacao nibs.
The bar had an appealing rich chocolate aroma. It lacked some of the stronger/developed flavors and acidity found in roasted cacao bars. However, some may prefer the smoothness, punctuated by hints of earthiness and mellow sweet and salty flavor notes.
Coconut sugar gave the bark a slight caramelized flavor. This "vanilla bean and caramel-infused" raw cashew bark (bar) had an attractive "rawmio" imprint and pattern on one side, with a scattering of cashew pieces and cacao nibs on the reverse side. The nuts and nibs offer some pleasant crunchy texture.
Thank you to Elana at SweetE Organic for her curated array of sweets. She is elevating the definition of "candy" and what many people think about "raw" chocolate.
