Product review: Zimt Artisan Chocolates

A few weeks ago, Ethical Deal had a daily deal for Zimt Artisan Chocolates.  Zimt chocolate is raw, vegan and fair trade gourmet chocolate that will make your heart melt and your taste buds sing. I honestly can't remember any chocolate I've had that tastes as amazing as Zimt.  Its not your average chocolate. Its gourmet. :)

Its a raw product and is sweetened with coconut nectar. The only thing in there is cocoa and coconut. There is no refined sugars, no fillers, just amazingness. Even the packaging is ethical. Its biodegradable, organic and eco-friendly. Its truly a product that you can feel good about buying and that makes you feel on top of the world!!!! If you have a chocolate fetish like I do then you know EXACTLY what I'm talking about.

With the deal, I got 3 bars. Chocolate coconut crisp, salt of the earth and sugar and spice. All amazing! But I'd have to say that the chocolate coconut crisp is my fave. And although I really loved the salt of the earth, its not crazy salty or anything, it was my least fave. Just a personal preference thing though. I just don't do salty chocolate. I know some peeps who love it. And believe me, I did not waste it by any means. I ate the ish outta these bars.

I chose to pick up the bars at my FAVE vegan bakery Fairy Cakes on Fraser. So of course I had to grab a couple goodies. One of them had a cookie baked INSIDE!!! How she does it, I don't know but I feel like its magic. 

Gluten free cookies

Chocolate w/ Pina colada and Vanilla w/ cherry and a cookie
These cupcakes were also gluten free. They have just regular vegan ones too but I opted for gluten free........this time. lol I didn't eat lunch this day. Just cupcakes and cookies. Perfection if you ask me. LOL I haven't had such a sugar rush in ages, but man was it ever worth it. I just wish they were closer so I could get them more often.

check Zimt's site for a list of places that carry them. You can get them at most Whole Foods except for Robson. That location is the worst. Its my go-to but they are always outta stuff or don't carry products I love like tempeh bacon. LOL and these bars. BUT I know that the Loving Hut Express food truck just started carrying these bars so now when I get my amazing burger I can get my amazing chocolate bars. BOOM





  1. yay! zimt!!! i love the chocolate coconut too. (i have become a salted raw chocolate fiend as of late though!)
    i've only tried fairy cakes once but was really disappointed. my cupcake tasted stale and dry and super fake and loaded with sugar. i'm glad you had a great experience - i will have to try them again, i love supporting our brave vegan businesses!
    i came across your blog looking for rebellious tomato's menu and i love your positive reviews! ^_^ hurrah for getting vegucated!

    1. Yah I have some friends who LOVE salted chocolate. I'll try it again. I sure didn't waste it. It was delish but the other ones were so amazing. I do know that they sell day olds and the daily ones....but she usually tells you....Try them again! the cookie was one amazing. Vegan baking is def not healthy but it sure is satisfying!
      Thanks for stopping by!! And the awesome comments, i love feedback :)

  2. Ohmygoodness- Krystle. Thank you so much! I am so glad that you enjoyed the bars. Plenty where those came from!

    Cibo- you are a fan and a half, let me tell you! I hope you stop by the shop again, too, because Zimt will be offering lots of retail products there soon =) (And I just want to see you-actual reason...). You too, Krystle- come on by!
