Winner of the 2013 Good Food Awards, this Bourbon Cask Aged virgin chocolate bar is the first of its kind featuring cask-aged cocoa beans. Raaka, a Brooklyn-based company, ages the cocoa beans in Berkshire Mountain Distilling Bourbon Barrels to give this bar notes of caramel, vanilla, and oaky deliciousness. Besides being certified Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified, this bar is unique in that it’s made with virgin, unroasted chocolate, which preserves flavors often lost during traditional processing methods. Even better, Raaka sweetens with a little bit of maple sugar, an antioxidant-rich sweetener made from the sap of the maple tree.
