Fine & Raw Chocolate Bars

Good morning! I hope that you had a wonderful weekend! Mine was so relaxing that I do not want to go back to work this week. 

This weekend I was lucky enough to try a a few, new to me, candy bars from Fine & Raw and they were so delicious I thought I would tell you about them just in case you wanted to try a few for yourself.

Fine & Raw was started by Daniel Sklaar who came to the US from South Africa for a job in finance. After a couple of years working as an analyst Daniel decided that finance was not for him so he left his job to search for his passion. Lucky for us he discovered his passion was chocolate and he began creating raw chocolate bars in 2007. For those of you who do not know raw food can only be cooked to a certain temperature, and the belief is that it retains more of its nutrients, in the case these chocolate bars 118 degrees.

All Fine & Raw chocolates are bean to bar, meaning that Daniel and his crew start with the raw beans instead of making their bars from ready made chocolate and melting it. 

I was sent a few bars to sample, including Almond Chunky, Sea Salt, and Cashew Butter and they were all delicious but my favorite was the Alderwood Smoked Salt. I love the slightly smokey salty flavor, paired with the rich 70% dark chocolate.

You can find Fine & Raw at Whole Foods or you can order directly from their website.

NOTE: This is not a sponsored post, I was sent several bars to sample in exchange for my honest opinion.
