RAAKA UNROASTED CHOCOLATE
Made in Brooklyn, NY
Raaka is devoted to making uncommonly delicious chocolate that captures the brighter, bolder, and fruitier side of cacao. That's why we make every bar from scratch with unroasted cacao beans, transparently sourced from growers we trust and admire.
All of our chocolate is vegan, and free of gluten, soy, and dairy.
100% CACAO // BRIGHT, NOT BITTER /Forget everything you think about 100% bars. This pure cacao bar is creamy and bright, not bitter, with a subtle, tingling fruity sweetness.
OAT MILK // BREAKFAST CHOCOLATE /This bar reminds us of homemade granola covered in chocolate; it could be breakfast, but it could also be dessert. Cane sugar-free.
PINK SEA SALT // A ROCK SOLID CLASSIC / A fruity, complex salted dark chocolate to end all salted dark chocolates. Made with single origin cacao from Zorzal Cacao, a farm and fermentary within a bird sanctuary in the Dominican Republic, and sprinkled with Peruvian pink salt sourced from Salt of The Earth Co. We think New York Magazine said it best: this bar has a “deep, dark, mysterious flavour with hints of cherry; and a finish as long as a David Foster Wallace footnote.”
BOURBON CASK AGED // The tuxedoed sophisticate in the family. We age single origin Tanzanian cacao in bourbon casks for two months, creating a deeply nuanced bar with a cocktail-like vibe: oaky and smooth, with a hint of cherry cordial on the finish. Our best selling bar and 2013 Good Food Award Winner.
COCONUT MILK // This is a vegan dark milk chocolate. It’s proof that we can, sometimes, have it all. It’s a silky, smooth utopian bar that catapults you into peak summer, with lush notes of berries and cream. Made with single origin cacao from Zorzal Cacao, a cacao farm and fermentary located inside a bird sanctuary in the Dominican Republic, and pure shredded coconut. Once referred to by Edible Brooklyn as “an actual dream.”
MAPLE & NIBS // This maple-sweetened bar tastes like a brownie straight out of the oven. Rich and smooth on the inside, generously sprinkled with toasted nibs for a crispy, crunchy outside. A longtime factory favourite. Perfect for those looking for alternative sugars.
GREEN TEA CRUNCH // This bar is dedicated to the kid inside us all. We steep toasty genmaicha green tea into cacao butter, then mix it with single origin Dominican cacao and crispy puffed quinoa for a comforting adult treat with a nostalgic crunch. The ultimate comfort food, this bar does everything except tuck you in at night.
BANANAS FOSTER // BRÛLÉE IN A BAR /We craft this bar with perfectly ripe bananas, fruity Peruvian cacao, house caramelized sugar, and vanilla bean. Our tribute to the iconic New Orleans dessert.
