#Review - Righteously Raw Chocolate
There is a company called Righteously Raw and they produce bars that are both delicious and nutritious. Made with Raw ingredients these bars are Gluten Free, Organic, Vegan and Kosher. They have no refined sugars and it are Soy free. I was very happy to learn that their products contain no gmo's.
I received the Maqui Rose Bar and the Acai Cacao Bar from Righteously Raw to review for all of you lovely people. The Acai Cacao Bar is made with 80% dark chocolate. The middle layer of the bar is crafted with Organic freeze dried acai berries, so smooth; and it perfectly compliments the chocolate. The result is a deliciously bitter and healthy treat that melts in your mouth. I find it interesting that one of the ingredients is Himalayan Pink Salt, it stands out in my mind because I don't see that on labels very often. Raw Agave Nectar was used as a sweetener and it is very low on the glycemic index. This bar has an Orac score of 44,220.
The Maqui Rose Bar is a sweet tasting blend of raspberry, beet, chocolate and rose. I really thought that this was going to be my least favorite of the two bars I was sent when I was informed which flavors I would receive in the mail. Boy, was I wrong. The inside layer was a lovely truffle made with maqui berry, a super food that is very high in antioxidants and is also a powerful anti-inflammatory. It was interesting to learn that the maqui berry is high in cancer fighting Anthocyans and Poly-Phenols. The bar was made in an allergen and nut free chocolate factory. There are approximately 3 servings per bar.
Disclaimer: I received 2 different flavors of Righteously Raw bars to try out and express my honest opinion. This review is based upon my honest experience with the product. Your experience may differ from my own.
