Cuckoo for Cocoa

By Yonni @vegandthecity

Cuckoo for CocoaI was in Boston last weekend and went back to this great outdoor market place, locally known as SoWa.  They have three sections: one with a variety of food trucks (where I had an awesome vegan truffle mushroom pizza!), one with crafts (where I bought a few fun gift items) and one which is a farmer's market, conveniently situated between the two. Obviously you expect vegan-friendly items at a farmer's market: corn, eggplant, tomatoes of a million varieties, sunflowers...I did not expect vegan ice cream and I certainly did not expect a full line of vegan chocolate!Cuckoo for CocoaCuckoo for CocoaThanks to Taza, I think I had a full meal's worth of samples!  This non-dairy line, which can be found nationally in places like Whole Foods, has a great variety of flavors, including Wicked Dark - a nod to their Boston (or should I say Bah-stan) roots.

I tried toffee almond sea salt. Try that for your next mole.I tried stone ground chocolate.  Melt that into some hot cocoa...I tried Mexican chocolate (the round items you see) with guajillo peppers.  Yup.  Wait 7 seconds like they tell you to, and you'll feel that heat right in the back of your throat!  Perfect for a cold, wintry day.I tried the cacao nibs.  Just a few are a great energy boost.I know - I know.  I just wrote about chocolate last week, but I guess I'm cuckoo for cocoa these days.  If you go and sample some, you'll see why!
