Righteously Raw Chocolate Truffle Bars are intense nutritional experiences. If you’re looking for a sugary Hershey’s indulgence, move on. These are grown-up, pure cacao and maca treats that I would describe more as a healthy snack than a dessert. Each thoughtful bite is a true dedication to the raw food movement, but far from the norm for mainstream chocoholics.
Tasting Notes for Righteously Raw Chocolate Truffle Bars
Surprisingly low in sugars, all of the Righteously Raw Chocolate Truffle Bars offer smooth chocolaty exteriors with a raw flavor that my taste buds needed a few bites to adapt to. The truffle fillings were what I would call “rugged” rather than smooth and creamy, but bursting with natural flavor. But each flavor is quite unique, so I’ll offer some more details on each.
Not that the packaging for Righteously Raw Chocolate Truffle Bars has changed just a little over the years. I left my pictures up, since the product inside is the same. But I’ve added images of the current product look with each flavor.
Caramel Bar (90% Cacao & Lucuma)
As you might imagine from a 90% chocolate, this one is seriously dark with a thin layer of caramel-esque filling. It isn’t gooey like you would think of caramel, but rather thick and lightly sweet – a nice mellowing contrast to the bitter chocolate exterior.

Maca Bar (Maca & Cacao)
For lack of a better description, this chocolate truffle bar is seriously strange, yet a bit addicting. The exterior “chocolate” is intense with maca and coconut sugar. The filling is thick with a rich cacao contrast to the sweeter coating. Overall, I like it. It is “particular”, but an excellent find for maca lovers.

Rose Bar (Maqui & Cacao)
Talk about different! This delightfully fruity truffle bar has a slight maca-like aftertaste, though there isn’t a hint of maca in the ingredients. It is more fruity than chocolate, even the coating boasts a bright purple hue. The dark chocolate center offers contrast to the sweeter berry chocolate. I found this one to be subtly addictive.

Acai Bar (80% Cacao & Acai)
Mmm, I could really taste the filling in this one and it was delicious! It reminded me of a rich blackberry jam – lightly sweet and bursting with flavor. The outer shell is a very thick and contrasting dark, almost too dark for my tastes; if kind of harshes the awesome truffle filling. I’d prefer a 70% dark chocolate on this bar, nonetheless, I found it tasty overall.

Goji Bar (90% Cacao & Goji)
Dotted with little berry bits, the contrast of the sweeter filling is a welcomed contrast against the very dark outer chocolate. I liked the overall flavor, though I admit I’d prefer a slightly less bitter dark chocolate – what can I say, I’m a sweets girl!

Righteously Raw Chocolate Minis
Righteously Raw also offers little, individually-wrapped dark chocolate squares. Again, these are adult flavors and not for the faint of heart:
- Divine Mint 82% – Gently minty and very, very dark.
- Synergy Spice 80% – Wow, crazy spicy and HOT. Only slightly sweet – I’d call this a very masculine chocolate that reminds me of a chili cook-off.
- Pure Dark 83% – Definitely dark, great for purists (though a touch too dark for me). Slightly bitter, yet smooth and rich.
