Chocolate Raw Organic Crunchy Mint
Crunchy Mint Dark Chocolate :: Raw Organic
Made with single origin Certified Organic Raw Cacao (72%) from Peru and sweetened with Organic Agave Syrup, our chocolate bars are hand-made in Melbourne.
What is it?
It seems that most serious chocolate lovers love a good mint chocolate. So we have done our best to satisfy you all with this little creation. We use Tasmanian peppermint essential oil to get that amazing mint chocolate flavour and then use our Raw Cacao Nibs from Satipo, Peru to give the bar a crunch and an extra shot of raw chocolate power.

Magnesium for the Heart and Brain
Raw Cacao is the primary dietary source of magnesium, the most deficient mineral in western civilisation. Magnesium is the most important mineral for a healthy functioning heart. It also plays a key role in producing energy for the neurons in the brain from glucose. So when there is an abundance of magnesium the brain works with clarity and focus.
Mood elevators and Anti-depressants
Cacao is a great source of serotonin, dopamine, anandamide and phenylethylamine (PEA), four well-studied neurotransmitters, which are associated with feelings of well being and help alleviate depression. Both PEA and Anandamide (the bliss chemical) are found in abundance in the brains of happy people and are particularly released when we are feeling happy. Both of these nuerotransmitters are present in raw cacao in large enough quanitities to affect the brain and lift our moods. Cacao also contains monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAO Inhibitors) that keep neurotransmitters in the bloodstream for longer without being broken down.
We have all experienced the positive feelings associated with eating chocolate, now we have access to pure raw unadulterated chocolate in the form of Organic Raw Cacao. This is much more potent than the processed chocolate and doesn't have any sugar or dairy products blocking the positive effects of all the goodies in Raw Cacao. My experience is that eating 11 Raw Cacao Beans is enough to experience a blissful sense of well being.
Satipo is a region that sits at the edge of the Amazon basin at the base of the Andes mountain range. In this area we work with 4 small producer groups that are grouped under the umbrella association of cacao producers of Satipo that consists of 164 families in total.
