Company Overview

Raaka Chocolate offers virgin, unroasted, stone ground, small batch chocolate flavors. This isn’t the Hersheys and Sarris you’d pick off the shelves locally, it’s unique and appeals to a true chocolate lover. Featuring both a subscription service and a by the bar shop, Raaka Chcolate is a sure way to give your taste buds a new adventure.

What’s In the Box?

First Nibs is a subscription box featuring two  limited edition bars straight to your door. Each month features a new flavors and a note describing how it was made and the source. Additionally you can shop previous and favorite flavors in their shop.  My trial box included three flavors Yuzu and Carrot, Red Miso and Maple and Pink Sea Salt in a beautiful bag.

My Thoughts

I love chocolate and I love trying different kind of chocolates. This pushed me quite a ways from my normal treats, but I loved it. Because I believe in sharing, I also passed along some samples to coworkers to see what they thought and the results were very divided – the bottom line – everyone has a different taste.

For me, the Pink Sea Salt was just too salty (go figure), but I don’t like salt. On the flip side, several people who tried the bar really loved it but they are partial to salty foods. The Yuzo and Carrot bar was absolutely delicious! It had a unique taste that made me want more. The Red Miso and Maple was also very good. Of all my testers, these two bars came in around even.

 Cost

Individual bars start at $7.95 with a 3-pack gift for $19.95. Subscription boxes start at $24.95 with a discount the longer you subscribe.  A mixed case 12-pack is $69.95.

The Verdict

If you’re looking for a gift for the chocolate lover in your life that’s adventurous, Raaka Chcolate is a great gift. You can’t buy these flavors and they’ll certainly wake up your taste buds. I would buy this for myself or as a gift for someone. You might discover the greatest flavor ever!
