Move over, Willy Wonka—chef and nutritionist sisters Priscilla Soligo and Rachel Whitfield make up small-batch chocolatier Raiz the Bar. It’s all about producing nutritious chocolate that’s untouched by preservatives, refined sugar, or anything artificial—they’re also chock-full of superfoods. Cacao beans are sourced directly from a co-op in Indonesia, and the rest is done by hand in Kwun Tong. Try the original “Authentic Me” bar for a complex, fruity flavor or ramp it up with the spice-packed “Love Me” chai chaga chipotle chili bar. Now that’s a mouthful.

$70 from select stockists, including Spice Box Organics (Shop K, Fook Moon Building, 72 Third St., Sai Ying Pun, 2568-2728) or order in bulk from www.raizthebar.com.
