The long, historical story of cacao and mushrooms being used together to create elixirs for immortality are plenty. Together, cacao and medicinal mushrooms create an energizing, yet grounding experience that supports the nervous system and adrenals. Plus, did you know mushrooms, when mixed together, have their qualities enhanced? It’s true! For a truly synergising, grounding and gently stimulating experience, La Medicina is your blend.

Kokolecacao sources their ceremonial cacao from a village in Chiapas, Mexico called Soconusco. The rare criollo variety, with small pods and few seeds, is where the magic lies. These beans contain the highest levels of ceremonial goodies like theobromine, endocannabanoids like anandamide, flavanols and polyphenols. Plus, this cacao isn’t as bitter as its neighbor, Guatemala, producing a smooth, fruit forward chocolate that has been produced in a particular way for thousands of years. May every drink, bite, sniff, nibble, and experience created with our cacao be blessed with love, health, and Allegria (joy).
Chiapas is the southernmost state in Mexico, bordering several Guatemalan states & the Pacific Ocean to the south. The state is generally tropical, but thanks to the convergence of land and sea, it's home to several microclimates, including deep valleys, mountainous cloud forests, and beautiful beaches. Chiapas is also notable for being home to one of the largest indigenous populations in the country, as the ancestral home of several distinct indigeneous Mayan groups, most of whom depend upon agriculture to survive.
I really like Theo & Philo across the board, but this one is a really special with a pop of heat and sweet tart mango and crunchy nibs. There's a lot of texture in this bar, more than I anticipated, but I really enjoyed it.
Notes detected on first taste: liquorice, tropical fruits, fudge. This is a sweet and decadent 100% bar. Had I tasted it blind, I might have put it at 92% or 95%. This would pair excellently with a stronger dessert wine. It hits you like a hammer, but it is a great bar nonetheless.
