Mongo like candy... (part 2)

Mongo has been eyeing a particular brand of raw chocolate recently. And because Mongo likes to try new things and love love LOVES to spend inordinate amounts of money on superfluous crap, Mongo succumbed to his desire and purchased one of these little numbers today.

It has everything that entices Mongo - it's vegan, it's raw, it's made without refined sugar, and it comes in 100% biodegradable packaging. Mongo would have to say that Love Street Living Foods had him hooked before he even opened the god damn package.
From their website: Our 100% raw organic Fair Trade chocolate products start with cacao and cacao butter harvested organically from Ecuador still in its most mineral-rich and living state.

Organic raw chocolate is filled with health-giving nutrients, minerals and enzymes. Raw chocolate is different than conventional chocolate which has been roasted and cooked at high temperatures. We use raw cacao butter and coconut oil, rich in nutrients and minerals, unlike the unhealthy and hydrogenated oils in most chocolate, for a creamy texture. The special addition of maca, super nutritionally rich staple from Peru, results in a true super food delight! This is the way chocolate was meant to be grown, harvested, prepared, and enjoyed!

Mongo originally saw this chocolate at Lifethyme but passed it up when he asked the cashier how much it was and the cashier responded, "I don't know, but it mad expensive." Mongo put it back because he didn't have time for such shenanigans, but then Mongo spotted it again today while at Westerly Health Foods, his favorite hippie comestibles kiosk in New York.

$3.79 - not too terrible, given the retardedly overpriced nature of raw foods.

Mongo bought it and rushed home with it, eager to slice that biodegradable packaging open and give this shit a whirl. Well, he did. And Mongo gives Love Street a big, fat THUMBS UP.

It does NOT taste like raw chocolate. It tastes like - surprise - chocolate. It's a little gritty, but one has to assume that's because it's sweetened with maple sugar, which is granular by nature. 

Try it - you'll like it. It is deee-vine. There's another version with goji berries in it, but Mongo thinks goji berries are gay and steered clear of that one.

Mongo did, however, just peruse Love Street's website and come across this little number that sounds so good he almost started crying. Mongo hopes that Westerly carries it because Mongo won't rest until he's dipped into that Tub of Wonder.

This is the least ridiculous video of this awesome song
Mongo could find on youtube.
