How does it taste compared to "regular" chocolate?

Very curious.

Also, I noticed that veganessentials sells "raw" parm fake-cheese. Again, what would something like that taste like and what exactly makes it "raw".

Sorry - i am really ignorant on the concept of "raw vegan". :oops: But are becoming increasingly fascinated.

I have some raw chocolate nibs I bought from www.eatraw.com . They are just chopped up cocoa beans. They are good on Soy delicious 'ice cream" or mixed with other sweet things. Alone, they taste a bit bitter, like the really dark chocolate you can buy for baking.

What makes anything 'raw' is that it is uncooked (obviously!) or heated to below something like 110 degrees (or whatever temperature at which the enzymes start being destroyed), so dried foods can be 'raw' as well. Vega bars and Lara bars are rawfood bars, for example.

I saw "raw fake parmesan cheese" recently and I was like :? how can that be "raw". :oops:

I got some of the nibs and made a 'pudding' with raw almond butter, craw cocolate nibs, bananas and a little agave syrup. It was yummy!

The nibs are just the cocoa bean, broken into pieces. See them here:
