Conscious Chocolates aren’t just delicious, they are incredible.
Since launching in 2004, the award-winning raw, organic chocolate company have rapidly expanded. Having sold their indulgently rich chocolate across the world, they have now become market leaders in the UK and Ireland, continental Europe and the Middle East.
The Conscious Chocolate range is lovingly hand-made in West Sussex. Created from the healthiest and purest ethically sourced ingredients available. Each bar is also hand-wrapped in biodegradable and compostable packaging.
Every product is vegan, gluten free, soya free and organically certified. It is of the up-most importance to Conscious that everyone enjoys their amazing chocolate, regardless of their dietary requirements. Their bars are suitable for coeliacs and those with diabetes.
The basis of each product starts out with raw organic cacao, raw organic cacao butter, raw organic coconut butter, raw organic carob and raw organic agave nectar. A variety of wild, sundried fruits, nuts, superfoods and essential oils are added to create their amazing flavours. These include Cherry, Chilli, Orange, Goji and Coconut, Love Potion, Mint, Plain, 70%, Nutty, Wild and Dark Side. You can read more about the origins of each ingredient here.
Reviewing these raw vegan chocolate bars was an absolute pleasure. The texture of the chocolate is so beautifully smooth and truffle-like. They literally melt in your mouth and the flavours are so fresh and intense.
It was hard to choose a favourite as each bar was so different yet equally delicious. I was swayed by ‘Love Potion’s’ essential oil of rose, reminiscent of Turkish Delight but with a much higher quality taste and texture. ‘Lion’s Raw’ with essential oils of Lemon, Grapefruit and Lime was a close second. The citrusy flavour pairs perfectly with the rich, dark chocolate. This bar gives back to the wonderful White Lion Protection Trust too.
Other flavours I was so kindly sent included The Dark Side with 85% Equadorian cacao solids, this is intensely dark and rich; Goji and Coconut was sweet and satisfyingly crunchy; Essential Orange has a beautiful tangy, citrusy and sweet flavour; Mint Hint with its creamy, refreshing minty taste and The Nutty One with a generous amount of Brazils, Cashews, Hazelnuts and Walnuts – ideal for nut lovers!
