    It's raw, meaning that the fruits and vegetables used are uncooked and blended together for a mousse. Cocoa powder is most likely used.

    Some info I pulled out of the net about raw cocoa powder:

    ...cocoa powder is made by cold-pressing our highest quality organic raw cacao beans into a cake, which separates the oil from the protein and fiber, making a dark brown paste called chocolate liquor. The temperature is never allowed to exceed 120 degrees Fahrenheit but usually only reaches 113 degrees. A high accuracy thermometer monitors this process. Other cocoa powders can be exposed to temperatures as high as 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Next, the some of the fat is slowly separated into cacao butter and what remains is a cake. This cake or cocoa solid is then cold-milled to become a truly raw organic unsweetened cocoa powder. The powder allows for maximum digestion and antioxidant absorption.

    Once the fat has been removed and there are no extra ingredients added, such as sugar, it is the healthiest form of chocolate you will enjoy.

    Chocolate contains Phenethylamine (PEA) is a natural monoamine alkaloid, trace amine, and psychoactive drug with stimulant effects. In the mammalian central nervous system, phenethylamine is believed to function as a neuromodulator or neurotransmitter. It is sold as a dietary supplement for purported mood and weight loss-related therapeutic benefits; however, orally ingested phenethylamine is usually inactive on account of extensive first-pass metabolism by monoamine oxidase (MAO) into phenylacetic acid, preventing significant concentrations from reaching the brain. So mix in a little MAO inhibators with your chocolate (preferably those found in nature).

    In addition three substances in chocolate and cocoa powder may mimic cannabinoid by activating receptors or increasing anandamide levels. Anandamide is a lipid that binds to cannabinoid receptors and mimics the psychoactive effects of the drug. Chocolate is widely believed to enhance the effect of marijuana. Word on the street is it is best to warm your chocolate canibus brownie in the over and microwave before you munch it num num num...

Hershey's bars, Hershey's bars with almonds, candy bars with chocolate in them, chocolate "i screams" cookies (don't think they make em anymore), chocolate cake, those YUMMY chocolate bars that kids who play baseball sell, chocolate syrup, my friend's yearly chocolate fudge, chocolate fondue (for bbq's in summer), chocolate brownies, my favorite ice cream of all time--Baskin Robbin's Chocolate Raspberry Truffle-- and the daily handful of frozen chocolate chips.



    ahhhhhhhhh

    I adore chocolate.

    **55% cocoa dark chocolate is my favorite.

    **White chocolate is not chocolate. Don't give me some and act like you gave me chocolate. Because you didn't.

    **Hershey's is not great chocolate, but not the worst by a long shot.

    **I like fancy expensive chocolates and truffles, but when they taste more like liqueur than chocolate, it's disappointing.

    **If I'm promised dessert and then find that chocolate is not a choice (ie: apple pie, bread pudding, creme brulee), I feel cheated. It's like it's not really dessert.

    **Cheap Valentine's candy is not worth the calories.

    **Chocolate fondue fountains are the best thing ever invented. I want one in my house.
