FILTHY FARMGIRL RAW CHOCOLATE RASCAL
“Mama used to hide her fancy chocolates on the top shelf of the pantry,

QUICK REVIEW: Yum yum. By far the best chocolate soap EVER.
the REVIEW (06/04/2011): I had to crack open Filthy Farmgirl Raw Chocolate Rascal first because I swear – its the most authentic chocolate soap I’ve ever smelled. Seriously, it makes me want to jump up and down. Chocolate scents are difficult because raw chocolate itself has a very mild scent – it smells wonderful when its heated (or being baked in a cookie) – but often on its own its easily missed. This works in favor for Raw Chocolate Rascal since it was recently reformulated and includes the same Chocolate Absolute that’s found in the Chocolate Smoochie Lipbalm. The scent is ridiculously yummy – and more like dark chocolate, rich and decadent vs. the usual vanilla based milky chocolate scents used in bath products which can make them more fit for kids. No fake Tootsie Roll chocolate smell here!
Its too bad you can’t eat Raw Chocolate Rascal – so its wonderful that it creates an equally luscious (and a little cocoa colored) frothy lather that stays soapy till you wash your tootsies (pun totally intended). It doesn’t reek of chocolate and is neither too sweet or too musky – but you literally feel like a much prettier version of Augustus Gloop bathing in Willy Wonka’s chocolate river (which is churned by waterfall – which, I must mention, are quite abundant on the Big Island where these yummies are made). The suds are easily rinsed and washed away – leaving you feeling like a clean chocolate bunny, and ready to get filthy all over again.
