FIRST NIBS: MONTHLY CHOCOLATE SUBSCRIPTION
The ultimate subscription for anyone who enjoys good chocolate and a good adventure: fresh, creative, and innovative micro-batch bars sent monthly from our factory to your doorstep. Each month, you'll receive two completely novel and seasonal chocolate bars, with the option to add one Raaka classic bar, gifted in our signature muslin pouch. We'll also share our story on craftsmanship and sourcing from our head chocolate maker Nate Hodge to create a full tasting experience.
Our First Nibs subscription is over two years old and feedback from subscribers is invaluable. As a subscriber, you can look forward to directly informing our seasonal Best of First Nibs bars and sometimes even our full-time collection.
September's First Nibs
At Raaka, we have a tradition of Beer Friday-4pm on Friday afternoons, we enjoy the company of coworkers over a local beer and cheers to the end of the work week. What better time to celebrate our two favorite things, beer and chocolate, than during Oktoberfest? Thinking back to our Porter-Hops & Malt bar, we embarked on an exploration into blending hops and cacao. Using the same base cacao percentage and origin for both First Nibs bars, we were able to highlight the unique tasting notes of two different hops with distinct flavor profiles. Much like in a great beer, we've paired the floral, bitter hops bars with the toasty, maple sugar-sweetened Maple & Nibs bar.
Fuggles Hops (71% Alto Beni Cacao Co., Bolivia)
Pacific Gem Hops (71% Alto Beni Cacao Co., Bolivia)
Maple & Nibs (75% Esco Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo)
