What does a Chocodelic Trip taste like?
Chocodelic Trip tastes similar to traditional dark chocolate cocoa, with an earthy finish from the array of unique mushrooms included. The Brothers use a dark Dutch Cocoa in this recipe, as well as real Madagascar vanilla bean powder + organic cane sugar (one of their few recipes with cane sugar!). While the Dutch Cocoa is a darker, more bitter version than lighter milk chocolates, the vanilla bean and cane sugar bring a familiar sweet flavor dynamic, making this more of a semi-bitter cocoa vs. a true dark chocolate.
Tasting Notes: Dark chocolate, hints of espresso, sweet vanilla, sweet cane sugar
What are the benefits of Chocodelic Trip?
Chocodelic Trip is a very unique CBD hot cocoa. Using a series of health-focused ingredients, including an adaptogenic blend of 10 synergistic mushrooms, is crafted to be both delicious & healthy. The mushrooms are carefully selected for their support of a healthy immune system, making this way more unique than your average cocoa. The Dutch Cocoa used also contains high amounts of Vitamin B, riboflavin and vitamin K. This cocoa also contains minerals like magnesium, potassium, and zinc.
What are adaptogenic mushrooms?
Mushrooms are a very unique eukaryotic species, as they contain chitin within their cell walls (what makes up insect exoskeletons!). More intriguing, however, is how adaptogenic mushrooms are used around the world. Most research has looked at the potential benefits of polysaccharides, including beta-glucan. Adaptogens are herbs, fungi, or other compounds that generally help the body react and support healthy reactions to stressors. Other well-known examples of adaptogens are ginseng or ashwagandha.
The mushrooms included in Chocodelic Trip are made from finely ground mycelium and fruiting bodies, and are cultivated in Portland, Oregon. Each batch is tested for purity & safety, and are some of highest quality bioavailable medicinal mushroom products on the market. The diverse composite of active constituents contained – which includes mushrooms like Chaga, Reishi, and Cordyceps – are an excellent way to maintain a healthy body. This rich, simply-made cocoa is one of the most delicious ways to enjoy them.
When should I drink CBD hot cocoa?
You can drink Chocodelic Trip any time of the day! It is a great beverage to enjoy in the evening, but adding a scoop to morning coffee is one of the founder's favorite ways to incorporate mushrooms into their morning!
The History of Hot Chocolate
Mayans were drinking hot chocolate as early as 500 B.C. It was made from ground cocoa seeds, water, cornmeal, and chili peppers, a lot different than the hot chocolate that drink today. They would mix it by pouring it back and forth in a pot until it created a frothy thick foam, and then they would enjoy the beverage cold. This was a beverage that was available to people of all class levels.
Cocoa beans and chocolate made its way to Europe in the early 1500s. The drink remained cold and bitter. It gained even more popularity when it was adopted by King Charles V and the royalty in Spain. After this, it started to be served hot and sweetened.
Hot chocolate made its way to England in the 1700s. They were popular in chocolate houses (similar to coffee shops today). It became increasingly popular despite the price of chocolate. The English started to add milk into their hot chocolate beverage, and enjoyed it after dinner. This is closer to what we know today!
Cocoa powder was invented in Holland, and the Dutch controlled nearly the entire chocolate trade. Dutch Processed Cocoa (European style), which is used in the Chocodelic Trip, is cocoa that has been treated with an alkalizing agent reducing the natural acidity. It is rich in flavor, with a smoother and milder flavor profile. It is often used in recipes like cakes, and even used in spice rubs.
