Local-ity: Cloud 9 Raw Chocolate

Standard

The name really says it all: Cloud 9. If you haven’t tried raw chocolate yet, you’re in for a treat. Make that a double treat – cuz Cloud 9 raw chocolates are made right here in Maryland.

We met the chocolatier behind Cloud 9, Jennifer, a few weeks ago at the AVAM State of the Earth Eco-Conference. Jennifer is a holistic nutritionist who lived – and ate chocolate – in Switzerland. Her inspiration was a meld between the exquisite chocolate technique of the Swiss and her passion for whole-health, whole-foods that are sustainable.

Cloud 9 comes in 4 flavors: Original, Cranberry-Pecan, Macadamia Nut-Goji Berry and Walnut. We sampled them all at the conference and each was smooth, delicate and – as the label promises – blissfully satisfying.

But wait – there’s more. No really – there IS more! This is not only vegan and gluten free, but loaded with antioxidants! A portion of raw chocolate is has antioxidant levels exceeding blueberries by 18 times. Additionally, raw chocolate has anti-aging effects including younger-looking skin, healthier cells and a stronger defense against cancer-causing free radicals.

You can buy Cloud 9 Raw Chocolate online. Try one type, or get a monthly subscription. You know, so you don’t run the risk of running out.

We’ve never felt so good about buying local – and eating chocolate.
