Derbyshire Christmas - Raw Halo Chocolate

This week I've been sharing some beautiful, vegan friendly products that are made in Derbyshire like these gourmet marshmallows or have links to Derbyshire like this Peak District themed range of teas. They would all be great for gifting or for treating yourself. I couldn't let my series of posts end without featuring some chocolate! So here we have Raw Halo who hail from Matlock.

I discovered Raw Halo a few weeks ago when we visited The Garden in Hale for lunch for my birthday. As well as being a cafe they also have a range of chocolate and snacks to buy to take away and I picked up a bar of Mylk and Crispies to try.

This organic bar is sweetened with coconut sugar and lucuma with some cashew butter added to the mix. The crispies are courtesy of buckwheat and although the word milk is in the name I'd say it's closer to a standard dark with cocoa solids of 48%. I really enjoyed the bar and how it was a bit different from other raw bars I buy. The bars are free from refined sugars and have less natural sweeteners than other brands on the market. That being said the bar still felt like a treat and like you were getting a good hit of cacao.

The Garden is not too far from the hospital where I see the cough specialists so I'll be picking up some more Raw Halo to try next time we visit. I've got my eye on ginger + pecan, salted caramel and cinammon + raisin to try next!


  1. I would be trying the same flavors that you're interested in. Anything with pecan is a sure fire win, and with added ginger? I can;t wait to hear all about them!

  2. Yum! Those sound great. I love it when companies spell vegan "milk" as "mylk." :-)

    Also, you asked on my blog if I'd run another marathon, and I believe the answer is yes! :-) Still contemplating where I should sign up for one in Arkansas (about two hours from my home in Memphis) in March. We'll see!
