Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and Mushroom Theme Week.
Today's "Perform" Mushroom Cacao Mix with Cordyceps was manufactured for Four Sigmatic Foods Inc. (Santa Monica, CA).
Aroma notes for this dairy-free cacao blend included: gentle warm spice, light citrus, very faint sweet warm mint/menthol, and subtle cocoa.
This lightly sweetened (coconut sugar), subtle warm cocoa was livened up with the spicy flavor of ginger. I did feel a little lift after drinking this; it may have been from the ginger.
I did not detect any noticeable texture or flavor from the added cordyceps mushroom extract. Mushrooms, in general, often have a slightly savory, umami flavor with earthy and/or nutty notes. Cordyceps mushrooms tend to have a more mild flavor, sometimes with a very slightly sweet finish.
Ingredients: Organic cacao powder, organic coconut palm sugar, organic cordyceps extract (500 mg), organic ginger powder.
