Coracao Confections

One of my favorite aspects of running Whole Foods Market's Local Producer Loan Program is getting to learn about interesting new products. Gluten-free, organic, vegan granola? Check. Wine sorbet? Check. Dairy-free coconut milk ice cream? Check!

One of our most recent loan recipients definitely fits in the "unique product" category: Coracao Confections. Daniel Korson and Matthew Rogers make incredible chocolate… raw chocolate! These two young chefs have been perfecting their chocolate-making skills for several years, and they have managed to turn raw cacao into smooth, yummy vegan chocolates in flavors like Coconut Dream, Caramel Cup, and Butterscotch Chocolate Chip Cup. Check out the video to see Matt making some Coracao Confections chocolates and let us know what you think!

These are really good. The coconut one was my favorite, but they all were good. They also had an antioxidant blast triple berry one with pomegranate, acai, and blueberry. Something like that. Look out for them, definitely worth a purchase.

Have you tried any of these confections? I am very curious what they taste like. I'd be interested to hear feedback until I can get myself into the store to try them.

They were giving out samples at the Potrero Hill WF... Lucky day! These little chocolates were very tasty and we bought a few more tasting. The chocolate flavor is deep and dark with a drop of sweetness. Yum.

I looked at their site and saw no mention of their products being kosher. I prefer products that are kosher as it assures me that there is an extra person watching and testifying that it is a pure product. Thanks

I feel so good when I eat raw chocolate for a treat. It always agrees with me. It amazing how well our body reacts when we provide really nourishing foods. Recently, I learned about some great health benfits of raw cacao on http://www.godpodscacao.com I recommend give it a look...

@RANDALL - I was able to find a website for their products if you cannot find them at your local store. You can find their site at http://www.coracaoconfections.com/.
