So what's the dealy'o with raw chocolate?<br><br><br><br>
I was at Whole Foods yesterday and they had 0.3oz of raw chocolate for $11!!<br><br><br><br>
Eleventy dollars for two bites?!?!!!!!one!!11<br><br><br><br>
The ingredients were: raw cacao + raw agave nectar. And I could imagine it tasting absolutely amazing. But $11? dang.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Anyone try raw chocolate? Was it worth the price?

Are you serious, 0.3oz?? Doesn't that come out to something like $586 per pound? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"><br><br><br><br>
I have bought the cacao nibs and blended them with agave and macadamia nuts. It was really good, but I wouldn't pay the price you're seeing for it. My agave wasn't raw, but the cacao nibs said they were and I paid less than what you stated.

Raw chocolate is expensive because it is relatively new on the market and there isn't that much of a demand for it.<br><br><br><br>
Lots of times raw chocolate is made from a certain kind of cacao bean. Raw foodists think some cacao beans are better than others. So the high price can often reflect on where the cacao came from<br><br><br><br>
Raw chocolate tastes different than the roasted kind. I think it is good but it is bitter by itself so it is an acquired taste. But raw chocolate is better for you than the roasted stuff!<br><br><br><br>
The agave nectar should give it some sweetness.

I don't care if it's the best chocolate in the world, I still wouldn't pay $11 for a couple of bites. Unless someone else was paying for it haha.

I bought raw chocolate, but it didn't have raw agave with it (luckily I had some at home). It was about $10 for 8 oz. It tasted horrible, until I poured agave nectar all over it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"> I have yet to try it in a smoothie or something. It's just too bitter to eat by itself, in my opinion.

I've never seen it in a store to buy it. I just make my own with raw cocoa powder, agave nectar, coconut oil, and sometimes vanilla & macadamias or walnuts.

It's worth asking the staff to double-check the price on the sticker. I know when I worked in a grocery store, I wasn't infallible with the sticker gun.
