Chocolate in your mouth and on your face

I could sing the benefits of dark chocolate for the being, (or just google it). There are many.

Hint: heart, brain, skin, happiness

This one by Cocoa Parlor, a dark vegan cacao bar molded with cashews like foliated metamorphic rock.

The highest quality and most flavorful bricks come from Theobroma cacao trees which are quickly diminishing. Don't fret yet, a solution is already in the works Heirloom Cacao preservation is already in progress with heirloom chocolate farmers harvesting this cacao beans at orgin.

Be aware, there is a chocolatier's movement slated as 'bean to bar'. Get involved.

For my localists; I look for craft chocolate bars melted near with beans sourced ethically.

To my traditionalists; the cacao beans are ethically and sustainability sourced, your chocolatier is a traveled craft bar expert.

Flavors I'm favoring in our boxes now:

Cocoa Parlor, California

Locally crafted vegan, organic, no refined sugars, fair trade

often featured in the Local Flare grazing box

Black Sheep, Oregon

Limited production, slowly batch, handcrafted

special appearances to the Traditionalist grazing box

Manoa, Hawaii

The only US grown cacao bean farm crafting chocolate 'farm to bar.'

To confirm which one of these chunks is included in your order, just ask! Or if you have a sweet recommendation please do tell.

Want to put it on your face? I do.

2 tbsp of raw cacao powder, 1-2 tbsp yogurt, 2 tbsp of coffee grounds (can be used from your morning coffee), 1 tsp honey, 1 tsp of cinnamon. Mix and apply to face in circular motions for at least 2 minutes, then rinse.
