Helping You Adapt into a Healthier Lifestyle, YES CaCao Feeds the Mind, Body, and Spirit

This chocolate isn’t a candy or a dessert. It’s a delicious food that gives intention to your daily life. Whether you need a boost of energy to power your brain, a bit of endurance to get you ready for work or a little something to calm the nervous system & quiet the mind at the end of the day, these bars will help you through it.

When reading about chocolate I found that there are two different types of chocolate made from the cacao bean, which is classified as Theobroma Cacao. These beans grow in tropical areas “the chocolate belt”, 20 latitudinal degrees North and South of the equator. Theobroma Cacao can be called cacao (ka-kow) or cocoa (co-co).

Cocoa, which most of us are familiar with, is plantation grown. enslaved beans which may have been treated with chemicals and pesticides and is a commodity based product.

Cacao, on the other hand, is not grown on a plantation. Instead it is grown organically in biodiverse ecosystems and wild harvested. YES Cacao works with an heirloom variety of cacao known as Arriba Criollo, sourced by a team of 450 wild harvesters throughout the jungles of Ecuador. Cacao beans are sought after for their nutritional density.

As did ancient civilizations, YES CaCao considers cacao a plant medicine. Since chocolate is considered a vasodilator (expands the blood vessels) they want to use it as a delivery system for organic herbs, teas, flowers, and superfoods (botanicals). Each bar contains specific botanicals to give your body just what you need at the moment.

I was sent 3 different bars to try out the YES CaCao chocolate.

The “Dirty” bar is a combination of:

YES CaCao

Organic Wild Cacao
Organic Sundried Cane Sugar (low glycemic)
Organic Wild Cacao Butter
Organic Lucuma
Organic Maca
Organic Mesquite
Organic Reishi
Organic Vanilla Bean
Organic Wild Shilajit
Organic Tulsi
Gynostemma Tea Leaves
Sea Salt
Organic Fennel EssentialOil
Organic Peppermint Oil

It is meant to keep you grounded for the day and give you endurance to help you go the extra mile. It is a nice dark chocolate with an earthy taste that adds a hint of mint.

The “Karma Mellowl” bar with:

YES CaCao

Organic Wild Cacao Butter
Organic Sundried Cane Sugar (low glycemic)
Organic Lucuma
Organic Maca
Organic Mesquite
Organic Yacon
Organic Vanilla Bean
Organic Coriander
Organic Lion’s Mane
Organic Gingko
Organic Turmeric (85-95% Curcumin Extract)
Wild Pine Pollen
Organic Cinnamon
Organic Bacopa
Gynostemma Tea Leaves
Sea Salt

This bar is meant to give your brain a boost. These nutrient dense botanicals will help refine your game. This was the most unusual bar because the color was golden. It is 41% cacao butter and its flavors were more buttery with a deliciousness of spice.

The “Gaba Baba” bar with:

YES CaCao

Organic Wild Cacao 
Organic Sundried Cane Sugar (low glycemic) 
Organic Lucuma 
Organic Wild Cacao Butter 
Kava
Organic Vanilla Bean 
Organic Turmeric (85-95% Curcumin Extract)
Organic Coriander
Sea Salt

This bar is meant to help you bliss out or de-stress. It might actually help you get a little meditation in at the end of the day. Or maybe before starting work! You will feel your nervous system unwinding, your mind calming and you can now take a deep breath. This dark, nutty bar was actually my favorite. Maybe my body is telling me this is the one I need today.
