This week is a bit of a mix between sweet and savoury.

Pana is all the rage at the moment and for good reason! They produce handmade, deliciously rich, raw and organic chocolate blocks. If you’re not a fan of dark chocolate then it may not be for you, but if you are, get into it. My favourite flavours are mints, nut and coconut & goji berry.
With the success of their chocolate blocks, Pana have also opened a shop front in Richmond, where they stock their iconic chocolate, plus a range of delicious raw cakes and sweets. Raw food is huge right now and in my experience it can be a bit hit and miss, but Pana do a great job of it. It can’t really be compared to your standard sweet treats because it’s completely different, but amazing all in its own right.
I must warn you, their sweets are very rich as a result of the raw cacao. I loved the Vespa Wheel, which is their take on a wagon wheel. It’s only bite size, but more than enough to satisfy your sweet cravings. I’m also a big fan of their bounty slice and snickers slice, they’re so different from the original thing, but just amazing.
