Ecuador is considered by connoisseurs to have one of the three best cacaos in the world. The chocolate itself is made from the exquisite “Arriba Nacional” cacao from farms in the Ecuadorian Amazon, which embodies fruity, floral and nutty flavors. We use one of the finest beans and produce from bean-to-bar to maintain product integrity and control of the final Antidote chocolate bar. Our hands-on "bean to bar" process allows us to supervise every step-from fermentation to refining the cacao. We pay special attention to all processing steps of the raw beans, not to exceed 118°F to maintain the raw properties. Actually we developed a proprietory process throughout all production steps in order for the raw cacao to remain raw.
1) Raw & roasted organic cacao. FLAVORFUL & REAL cacao taste. It comes without the loads of sugar.
2) Extraordinary flavor pairings such as: Lavender + Red Salt, Banana + Cayenne, Almond + Fennel and more to explore.
3) Each flavor is named for and guided by a Greek deity (see back of box) to brighten and ease your day.
Antidote chocolate bars are sustainably made from “bean to bar” with a unique 50/50 blend of RAW & roasted organic cacao for optimum taste and high nutrition. The cacao is organic certified, and we are paying a premium price to farmers protecting them, the environment, and wildlife. We use very little whole (unrefined) cane sugar, which is what makes Antidote a powerful superfood, even though it tastes like a yummy treat. Organic, Vegan and gluten free.
We also designed our packaging to be practical and inspiring as you may enjoy an Antidote bar over several days.
Seeing red, feeling blue? There is an Antidote for that. Chocolate offers relief from drama. It is a powerful treat for weak moments. It is a way to enjoy good times. Antidote is also a remedy to low-quality chocolate that has too much sweetener or refined sugar and dairy, which are in conflict with releasing the health benefits of cacao. However, cacao is extremely powerful and nutrient-rich, which makes it a natural antidote to the stresses of everyday life. Due to Antidote's high cacao content, organic ingredients and use of raw cacao it is most potent. We call them the 5 a's for Anti-oxidants, Anti-depressant, Anti-stress, Appetite suppressant, Aphrodisiac. We selected charismatic ancient Greek goddesses and named our bars after them with a little anecdote on the back of each package. Empower and nurture your inner goddess!
