S.F.-based startup Fearless makes its raw-cacao chocolate “adventurously with auspicious providence and lavish devotion,” according to the attractive recycled packaging. Bars are made with unroasted organic cacao beans cooked on low heat (under 118 degrees) and are free of soy, dairy, and gluten. A molded “bite” is taken out of the corner of each bar to represent the company’s donation of a small portion of the proceeds to charity.
Fearless stands out by avoiding the mealy texture some of its local raw competitors have. This is a bar you can snack on and not feel deprived of the roasted bean flavor. There are five bars in all. We’ve gravitated to the 70-percent dark Sweet N Hot, which balances the sharp tang of hibiscus with a buzzy ginger burn.
Thanks for the kind words Tamara! You clearly have great taste
