Magic Mayan was the original creation of Matthew Norrish. Being a type one diabetic and frustrated with the poor quality of available sweet options, he invented his own and Magic Mayan Chocolate was born.
In 2015 Matthew handed the torch over to family Darren, Sinead and Nathan O’Connor, also based in Ennis Co. Clare.
Magic Mayan Chocolate provides 14 different organically sourced, deeply dark, dairy-, gluten- and soya free raw chocolate bars to health stores and raw chocolate fans.
Darren and Sinead were completely captured by the beautiful taste that can be achieved without emulsifiers and fillers and were called to take the torch, spread the word about the wonderful world of raw chocolate, and grow the fan base.
What is Raw Chocolate?
The common perception is that chocolate is a naughty luxury and apart from the feel good factor it
brings, it is not healthy for you. Well, it is if it is RAW and minimally processed using only high-quality basic ingredients.
The normal Cocoa you put is drinking chocolate is a processed version of Cacao (a fruit grown in Gahana, India, Madagascar, Venezuela, Cuba, Peru and Equador). Cacao is produced from the Cacao nibs harvested from the seeds of the fruit.
In its raw form Cacao contains:
Magnesium and other essential minerals including calcium, sulphur, zinc, iron, copper, potassium, and manganese.
- Polyphenols called flavonoids, with antioxidant properties.
- Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B9, E.
- Essential heart-healthy fat: oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat.
Our bars are produced in a way that maintains these wonderful healthy properties and taste wonderful.
