Peruvian Gold Bar

Regular price £5.00 Sale

Introducing a deep dark magical mystical character 🔮 Peruvian Gold. Welcome to my first Limited Edition bar!

It's warm and spicy thanks to turmeric (gold), cinnamon and cayenne.

And it's full of magic thanks to a blend of Peruvian ceremonial cacao (this one is roasted) which we affectionately know as 'milagros' - miracles ✨ - and Peruvian raw criollo cacao. Extra magic illuminates your third eye thanks to the purple corn extract and the song for this recipe is called Magic Flow.

At 95%, this one of my darkest bars. I have kept the sweetness to an absolute minimum and used the healthiest most balancing for the blood sugar.

There's lucuma - which is known as Peru's gold - a fruit whose golden flesh is dried and ground to create this powder, so it's high in fibre and low GI.

Also a tiny dash of yacon syrup, which has a very slow sweetness that is purpley-green to my tastebuds. Yacon is made from a root vegetable (jicama) and is suitable for diabetics, being high in fructo-oligosaccharides which taste sweet and have almost no impact on blood sugar. It also offers the benefit of being a prebiotic.

And a pinch of inulin powder which comes from the agave cactus plant. Similar to yacon, inulin offers a taste of sweetness and yet passes through the gut without impact on blood sugar.

Bring on the magic and miracles ✨💫🌟

This bar has been a miracle worker for my PMS. A small piece melted slowly on the tongue really helps with my symptoms. I usually prefer Ecuadorian cacao, because I don't like the fruity notes of Peruvian, but Aradhana's bars and gifts are so beautifully balanced and use such special cacao that I'm won over!

This one is truly exquisite. I can taste the minerals in the soil that the cacao trees grew in, the wild rains that watered them, an element of clean woodsmoke, and intense pure dark cacao. As the flavours unfold on the palate, there is a subtle yet tongue-tingling taste of earthy spices, that gradually fades to a touch of cinnamon.

If you close your eyes, you can almost see an ancient fire flickering and casting shadows, almost breathe in the scent of curls of smoke and the warm night air, almost hear ancient words in song and the hypnotic beat of a skin drum. Mystical indeed.

Overall, this chocolate is about the same strength as a good espresso (without the coffee, obviously!), so a little goes a very long way. The real gold decoration is just gorgeous too, it would make a strikingly special gift on looks alone.

If you want full power cacao without the sweetness then this is the ultimate way of the warrior. We’ve enjoyed it most gently melted into an uplifting mylky drink. Recommended.
