Today was the third day of Raw Chocolate Theme Week.

Family members brought to my attention probiotic chocolates from New Earth Superfoods (San Luis Obispo, CA). Thank you to my brother David (and my sister, Katy).

Today's Hazelnut Nougat with Cream was in bar form in a sealed package (refrigerate for best results). The "Cream" in this case was not conventional cream, but rather dairy-free coconut (kefir) probiotic yogurt.

This raw, organic filled chocolate bar had a subtle sweet, fermented, ripe fruit aroma and initial spiced berry flavor. (Normally raw chocolate has a "flatter" taste profile; but the filling in this one helped add a bit of zest.) The chocolate had a rapid and smooth melt and texture.

I didn't taste hazelnut specifically, but the filling in this probiotic bar was made with coconut probiotic yogurt, ground nuts and a variety of spices and seasonings. So having the nut flavor get a little lost was not a complete surprise. Overall, this was an interesting, satisfying bar.

This chocolate was labeled as Gluten Free, Soy Free, and with No GMOs.
