Medicinal mushrooms were discovered centuries ago in Asia and were used in traditional Chinese, Siberian and Tibetan medicine.
Each mushroom has its own healing properties -- Cordyceps are associated with longevity and stamina. Reishi has anti-aging properties and has long been used as a talisman of luck, healing, and wellness in Chinese culture. Chaga has anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties.
While mushrooms may seem like the health star in this bar, we can’t forget that dark chocolate is also packed with nutrients and is rich in antioxidants.

It is estimated that the British eat 660,900 tonnes of chocolate per year. This means an average Brit consumes 11kg of chocolate annually—or roughly three bars each week!
The British love chocolate, and it's not surprising why. It's impossible to resist a chocolate bar. Also, if you prefer dark chocolate, you can enjoy its antioxidant properties.
With the Healers chapter, you get not only the healing properties of chocolate but also those of mushrooms. People have eaten mushrooms and used them medicinally throughout history. Many traditional and folk healers believe mushrooms are beneficial in healing and cleansing. Chefs also value mushrooms for their savoury taste, called umami. Plus, many nutrients are found in mushrooms, including B vitamins, potassium and copper. For these reasons, medicinal mushrooms in the UK are rapidly gaining popularity.
The Healers chapter brings mushrooms and dark chocolate together in one unique, delicious blend you can indulge in.
Where do you source your ingredients from?
We source our cacao beans from the Sur del Lago region in Venezuela and the Esmeraldas region in Ecuador. Venezuela's lush forests grow some of the world's best cocoa varieties. The same applies to the Esmeraldas region; Ecuador's chocolate quality stems from its diverse terrain and equatorial location.
Do your chocolate bars contain allergens?
Most of our Eat It Like chapters are vegan-friendly, and our goal is to ensure that our chocolate bars are suitable for people with allergies or intolerances. Note that traces of milk, wheat, tree nuts or peanuts may be present.
Is dark chocolate healthy?
When it comes to food that’s good for you, you may not think of chocolate first. However, chocolate, the dark variant, has long been associated with health benefits.
According to studies, dark chocolate can be beneficial in many ways if not high in sugar and saturated fat. For one, it contains powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants fight inflammation and protect our cells. Foods rich in antioxidants include vegetables, fruits, seeds, nuts and cocoa beans, which are used to make chocolate.
Eating chocolate regularly may have health benefits, but the cocoa content must also be considered. A higher percentage of cocoa solids means more cocoa flavanols.
How much dark chocolate can I eat in a day?
The key to enjoying sweet treats in moderation. You should aim for a serving size of one to two ounces of dark chocolate. That’s approximately 30-60 grams and much more chocolate than you might expect!
Overindulging won't do you any good health-wise. Besides, it is best to savour every bite slowly when it comes to dark chocolate. So aim to consume a bite or two daily as a daily indulgent treat.
