Shaman Chocolates makes the list!

Bake it Forward is very excited to share a new (at least to us) chocolate company with you! Shaman Chocolates

As of today, their website is under construction, but there’s a nice little description of their product (as well as a shopping cart) at Eco-Express:

“The Huichol, Maya and other indigenous peoples of Mexico believed the cacao seed was the bounty of the gods, a gift from Paradise. To the Huichol, who have used it in ceremonies since time immemorial, leaving offerings of chocolate to show their love for Mother Earth, this “Food of the Gods” is for everyone to enjoy. Now, you too can experience the Shaman’s Secret.

Shaman Chocolates help support the Huichol’s economic and cultural survival. This small tribe of approximately 15,000 living in Mexico’s Sierra Madre mountains near Ixtlan are perhaps the last in the Americas to have retained their pre-Columbian traditions. With each purchase of Shaman Chocolates you help them to preserve the ceremonial traditions, rich mythology and magnificent visionary art that compliment Huichol culture. Savor Shaman Chocolates knowing it is not only the gift of the gods, but delicious, organic and tastes heavenly too.”

So far, we’ve tried the dark chocolate with ginger and green tea, and the milk chocolate with macadamia nuts and pink sea salt.

Delightful.
