Cloud 9 Fudge

As you all are well aware, I'm on a bit of a raw chocolate kick. Not only is it rich in antioxidants, but the taste of raw chocolate is amazingly delicious!  As I was walking around the Baltimore VegFest, I stumbled across a raw fudge maker! Did I say, "raw fudge?" Yes, I did!

Cloud 9 was developed by a nutritionist named Helene Leeds who founded Shine Health, LLC. After living in Switzerland for ten years, she was inspired by the chocolate makers, but searched for a healthier option. This lead her to develop her own raw, organic, vegan fudge.

Cloud 9 makes four flavors of fudge: original; cranberry pecan; macadamia nut, goji berry; and walnut. I chose to try the macadamia nut, goji berry. This fudge is about as delectable and rich as fudge can be. Imagine cocoa powder, cocoa butter, and coconut butter blended and sweetened with agave nectar, dates, vanilla, and salt with cacao nibs, goji berries, and macadamia nuts and you have pure bliss. It is soft yet firm and leaves a satisfying chocolate taste in your mouth well after you have devoured the fudge.

Raw and organic superfoods are the elixirs of life and Cloud 9 raw chocolate is the perfect superfood supplement. Who ever heard of over 25,200 antioxidants in a single spoonful of chocolate? Well, here it is. Currently you can buy the fudge at a few stores in Maryland or from their online store. They even offer a 3-month subscription. Talk about a great gift! Hint, hint.
