Raaka Oat Milk Dark Chocolate: I've been buying chocolate bars once in a while during my weekly grocery trips to the Park Slope Food Coop. This one from Raaka checks all the boxes in terms of guilt-free snack purchases (organic, single-origin, etc.), with the inside label covered in facts about where the chocolate comes from and how much it costs to produce. The packaging waxes on about using unroasted beans as a way to bring out the "brighter, bolder, and fruitier side of cacao." This particular flavor is described as combining breakfast cookies, cinnamon, and cereal milk, which is what sold me on making the purchase. But, at the end of the day, it just tasted like dark chocolate to me. Good dark chocolate, but not anything that would remind me of any of the aforementioned breakfast items, especially not if eating it blind. I feel like my palate is pretty good even though I'm pretty new to chocolate, so I'm wondering if it's mostly come down to good marketing. As I said, it's good dark chocolate, but if you read the packaging and are expecting more pronounced breakfast-vibes, it'll probably be a lot more subtle than you'd expect. 3.0/5.0
