Not too bad! Since some days I have a hard time getting my calories and my protein this is a good one...
I know there are many debates over raw cacao, like is it REALLY raw? is it toxic? I just think it is delicious...

This looks good but I worry about getting too much iron. Where does all the iron come from?

I don't think you need to worry about getting too much iron, it mostly comes from the hemp protein but there is iron in the cacao as well.
