Raw Chocolate Coated Berries A gorgeous selection of berries dipped in deliciously dark Raw Chocolate, finished with a generous dusting of Cacao powder. This exciting synergy of rich Raw Chocolate and sweet chewy berries will tickle your senses and have you saying YES! to life, love and chocolate! ‘One of my favourite products is our Raw Chocolate Coated Mulberries. The funny thing is that they came about by accident. In the early days I was looking for ways to sweeten Cacao naturally, with fruit, fruit sugars, fruit powders, anything really that I could lay my hands on that was sweet and natural and not cane sugar! I happened upon White Mulberries from Turkey and they tasted really great with chocolate and I decided ‘This is it!’. So I threw a load of Mulberries and Cacao into the machine and… broke it! It came out a solid mess. So I got another machine and tried again and… broke that one too! The combination was so good I experimented with loads of different ways to combine them into a chocolate bar but they just didn’t want to work. The result was always a broken machine and a big solid chunk of chocolate that tasted great but needed to be chiselled. I finally realised that they needed gentler treatment and leaving whole, with a Raw Chocolate coat and dusting of Cacao. Once I had perfected the Raw Chocolate Mulberries it seemed only natural to do the same with Goji Berries and Raisins too.’

Raw Chocolate Bars:

Intense chocolate luxury without compromise Our Raw Chocolate bars are delicious, pure and full of good stuff! We only use natural ingredients and pour as much love into each bar as possible. They are all lovingly hand made just outside Brighton in small batches. You probably know that chocolate can be full of amazing poly-phenols, nutrients and minerals. Conventional production methods destroy most of these so we have set out to retain as many as possible through our unique low temperature production method. This preserves as much of the goodness as possible, which we have enhanced even further by adding some really super supreme ingredients! All our products are sourced from small farming operations. Where possible we source Organic and Fairtrade. Linus, our Choco Wizard in Charge, has scoured the world and undertaken years of research to bring to you six superb flavour combinations in two sizes – the traditional 44g size and our new handy snack size 22g Mini Bar.

We recommend you take yourself somewhere quiet and enjoy these bars slowly!

For chocolate aficionados and connoisseurs we have Pitch Dark and our Goji Berry & Orange Bar. Both have a very high raw Cacao content and are the ultimate in chocolate intensity.

Conscious not to over power the senses, we have delicately complimented this rich dark Raw Chocolate with Raw Goji Berries and Orange essence in our Goji Berry & Orange Bar. Ingredients: Cacao mass, Coconut Palm sugar, Cacao Butter, Goji Berries, Orange oil.

Goji Berries The happy berry

Our sun-dried Chinese Raw Goji Berries are supreme, flavourful little berries. They have a soft, sweet, full flavour somewhere in between cranberries and dried cherries. Goji Berries, also known as Wolfberries or Lycium fruit, are native to China, Mongolia and Tibet, where the tender Goji Berries are shaken from the tree rather than picked, and then carefully preserved by drying in the shade. Goji Berries have been eaten in Himalayan and Tibetan regions for centuries, and have earned the nickname of ‘happy berry’ due to the feelings of natural wellbeing that eating them is said to bring about.

The anti-aging berry Goji-Juicy

Makes one long tall delicious drink. Soak a generous handful of Raw Goji Berries in 250ml (1 cup) fresh fruit juice (e.g. Apple or Pineapple) until the berries go soft (at least an hour or two). Blend Raw Goji Berries and juice together. Enjoy!

In Chinese medicine Goji Berries are recognised as a tonic herb promoting longevity, strength, healthy immunity and emotional balance. Chinese sages of old knew the power of Goji Berries well, and they certainly lived long and vital lives. Goji Berries are particularly well documented as being a powerful antioxidant food. Anti-oxidant nutrients in foods protect cells from oxidative damage (aging), which occurs as a result of exposure to pollution, sunlight or radiation.

Berry Delicious

Goji Berries are best eaten raw or you can use them to brew into a tonic tea.

Superfood Nutrition

Cacao is a tremendous supremefood, having one of the highest polyphenols levels of any food on earth. Other essential minerals present in Cacao are Calcium, Zinc, Iron, Copper and Potassium. It is also high in the ‘Beauty Minerals’ Sulphur and Magnesium.

The Food of Love and Happiness

Raw Cacao contains a cocktail of pharmacologically active substances, including mood-enhancing neurotransmitters and a chemical the brain secretes when we are in love. This could explain why chocolate has long been suspected of having anti-depressant and aphrodisiac properties!

Child: ‘I had the privilege to be educated in a Rudolf Steiner School and when I graduated I knew I could achieve anything I ever wanted.’ www.steinerwaldorf.org Grown-up: ‘Many years ago I started on my journey through raw foods which changed my life completely. My new found friends and I met up every other week having ‘raw pot lucks’ where we all brought a raw dish to share. What a lovely way to meet friends and eat delicious food! But my journey wasn’t just about health and nutrition, not just about the physical. My growth and maturing have brought me to embrace love, care, wellbeing and peace. Three years ago some of us discovered Tantra and started going to workshops. Now I have another bunch of super nice friends where real honest communication happens. No secrets! We share our lives with each other, what a relief. I don’t have to pretend to be someone I am not. Many people think Tantra is all about sex but by golly gosh, no it is not!! What I am learning is to listen to my body and feel feelings. Instead of reacting from a place of fear I try to really check what is going on for me on the inside. I am learning to undo many of my old patterns that don’t serve me and to create a new reality as I myself want it! I am learning to love every moment for what it is and not to cling on to a dream or illusion. I am also learning that I, as a man, can be more masculine with a strong direction without being destructive and dominating...... I recommend  The teachers I love are these: Jan Day www.janday.com David Deida www.deida.info
