This one is packed full of purple antioxidant power, containing powered freeze dried blueberry and Açai (pronounced as-ah-ee). Using powdered fruit rather than whole gives the chocolate a consistent flavour – there are no fruity highs or chocolatey bits here – and it’s very fruity indeed, with the blueberry being the predominant taste. It sits well with the dark chocolate flavour (this chocolate is 50% raw cocoa) which has the characteristic fast melting, smooth, clean mouthfeel.
For raw chocolate this bar is very zingy. The underlying cocoa flavours are topped by a very bright, tingling citrus note from the berries. The finish is definitely more cocoa than fruit with the blueberry and acai providing a palate-cleansing climax to a soft, rich mouthful.
I liked this enough to be interested in trying some more. Next time I pass a health food shop I shall be keeping an eye out for more Mood Foods bars (particularly the banana and hemp seed one).
