$25 Valentines Day Chocolate Gift Card #Giveaway to Coracao Confections (Open WW) Ends: 2.14.17

Since becoming vegan during the middle of last year, after being vegetarian for 15 years, I wanted to know if I could find a nice tasting chocolate that would still satisfy my taste buds. I have grown to enjoy dark chocolate since becoming vegan but I wanted to shake it up a bit to see what other options were out there.

 So, I heard about Coracao Confections a while ago now and jumped on their mailing list but just got around to ordering some of their individually-packaged pieces of chocolate. By the way, if you join their email list, you have a chance to win $100 worth of their chocolates. They do their drawings monthly for one winner.

They are located in California and have a nice variety of handcrafted chocolates. One of them that I received complimentary with my Valentine's Day pre-order purchase was a bit outside-of-the-box, in flavor, but it was nice that I gave it a try too. It was the Salted Almond Butter Chili Cup. It had a kick of spice from the cultured chilis with the almond butter and coconut sugar filling. There was also Balinese sea salt sprinkled on top. 

All of the chocolates came in a small box, wrapped in pink tissue paper as shown in the images below. I also liked that you could see the ingredients for each chocolate, which is nice to know.

Of the two that I purchased, I really liked the Golden Galleon. It is also one of their customer favorites and I see why. It has whipped cashew butter caramel, nuts, and is nice and chewy. One customer said that it reminded her of the Samoa Girl Scout Cookie. I kind of could taste that but this is much softer and oozing to me ;) I could taste the coconut too, which I love anything coconut!! I will be purchasing more of them in my future orders every time they are available. Highly recommend.

Like I said about the dark chocolate earlier, I have grown to like it, but I'm more of a sweeter-chocolate gal for sure. However, their Berkeley Bar is still good because I enjoy chocolate and nuts together. This piece of candy has whipped cashew butter with crunchy, salty almonds. It's their take on the Snickers if you enjoy them and it has 81% dark chocolate on the outside.
