What's Dipping in the Well: Mayan Chocolate

SVFCMayanChocIceCream

Mmm…Mayan…Chocolate…

Fresh from our Deli to your tastebuds: Organic Mayan Chocolate Ice Cream. Warm up and perk up with the latest seasonal flavor in our ice cream well: handmade Mayan Chocolate — a blend of dark chocolate, vanilla, chipotle chilies, and ground cinnamon.

Stop by for a scoop or pint of our popular twist on the Co-op’s smooth, melt-in-your mouth, original chocolate flavor. It’s gluten-free and handcrafted using quality chocolate and a special combination of spice. Our Mayan Chocolate is just the fix for a cool, drizzly day: it’s zippy, tickles the senses, and warms the blood.

The ancient Mayan people of the Mesoamericas were chocaholics and revered chocolate (or cacao) as “the food of the gods”. One can argue that not much has changed since. Humankind, across the globe, loves chocolate. According to CNN, in 2009, chocolate was a $83 billion a year business.

Rich in iron, antioxidants and fiber, chocolate is a delicious super and comfort food. One we enjoy incorporating into ice cream. Enjoy this fabulous marriage of chocolate and spice by making an unforgettable milkshake: blend it with organic fair trade bananas, coconut or berries.
