Raw Chocolate Eggs from St Ives
Raw, vegan and sugar-free! These healthy Easter Eggs have a lot going for them - but do they taste any good?
Chocolate scoffing season will soon be upon us but if you’d prefer to indulge guilt free, read on. Muddy has been putting a range of healthy Easter eggs to the test.
Handmade in St Ives by Cornwall’s family-run Raw Chocolate Pie Company, these beautifully wrapped eggs are good for your health and good to the earth. They are made with fairtrade, organic ingredients and are dairy-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, and packed with nutrients – honest!
But I know what you’re all wondering – can they really replace the real thing? Well, this is my kind of investigative journalism…
You definitely get your chocolate fix flavour wise – raw chocolate is intensely chocolaty and you don’t need as much, like when you eat a really good dark chocolate. But the texture is a little softer and they have to be kept in the fridge.
For the large eggs there’s a choice of all chocolate or a chocolate and fudge combo and inside is either fruit and nuts or dried cranberries and goji berries. The little eggs (my favourite) are solid and combine fudge and raw chocolate – like a healthy cream egg alternative but so much better!
About The Raw Chocolate Pie Company
The Raw Chocolate Pie Company was launched by healthy eating guru Debby Fowler. Debby was the founder of Halzephron Herbs in West Cornwall, then started Living Foods of St Ives, a shop and online business selling sprouting seeds and superfoods, like cacao nibs and lucuma.
She developed Raw Chocolate Pie to satisfy her customers cravings for raw chocolate treats that taste really good, while retaining the health-giving properties of all the natural raw ingredients. It’s sugar, dairy and gluten free, packed with antioxidants and comes in lots of tempting flavours – I like the Pink Himalayan Salt and Coffee Smoothie best. An equally healthy Raw Fudge has also been added to the range.
Raw Chocolate Pie is stocked in health food shops around the UK, including Archie Browns and Cornish Food Box in Cornwall and London’s Whole Foods and Planet Organic.
