Chocolate Madness

Damn!  What have I been doing lately?  Writing about tea and awesome people is great and all, but I need to get back to my roots and tell you lovely folk about something tasty and decadent and…. chocolate!  I have mentioned some great faves in the past, but none have been so insanely dark and rich and anti-oxidant-filled as my new favorite:  DerrickSky.

In particular, I am talking about the Mocha Madness truffles which, as you can see, are HUGE (seriously, one barely fits in the palm of my hand).  What you can’t see, however, is all the goodness they contain.  Goodness like pumpkin seeds, goji berries, maca powder, and spirulina.  If you’re anything like me you would take one look at that ingredient list and think “Well, this will be disgusting but healthy” and you would be VERY WRONG! How they do it is beyond me, but these taste like nothing but pure, unadulterated, heavenly, chocolate… with just a touch of coffee. Sweetened only with agave, dates, and yacon syrup, these choco-bombs are not for the faint of heart, but the chocoholics in your life will rejoice, as I did, shouting to the heavens, “Finally something so intensely dark and so indulgent and also so good for me!”

DerrickSky makes a whole line of cookies and chocolates, all of which are gluten-free, vegan, and made from whole, natural, ingredients.  They are also “crafted at low temperatures to keep the flavor, nutrients and vitality of this celebrated food alive and jumping.”  That quote is from their website – a place you should go right now and order some of these treats for yourself.  Your taste buds AND your body will thank you.
