Good Stuff Cacao Michigan - Ripoff of our and Guatemala's Cacao honey innovation ?

Strange that good stuff owner Mietling gives all the credit to her 'god' who is the same God General Rios Mont and his Israeli backers used to justify their genocide against the Mayan people in the 1980's.....
We,(my Guatemalan business partner and myself),started as a coffee roaster in 1993 and although I considered cacao honey bars in the 1990's it was only when internet arrived and I read the latest medical research involving cacao and the Kuna tribe of Panama that I got serious and we made our first cacao honey bar in 2005.I searched to see if other were doing the same in english and spanish but found not a single mention of 'cacao honey bars' on the world wide internet.

                                        So What is Cacao?

Cacao is 100% unprocessed dark chocolate. Good Stuff Cacao is raw food from the cacao bean. The Cacao Bean is one of God’s most fantastic superfoods. Why is it so good for you? First, because it’s raw. That means it’s never heated above 118 degrees, never destroying the minerals, nutrients, amino acids, antioxidants and vitamins that are naturally found in raw cacao beans.................

Wait. Are you saying it right? Yep, cacao. Not, cocoa.......................

Our cacao comes from Peru or Ecuador, never Indonesia or African regions. We work with companies that believe, as we do, in fair trade standards. Sunfoods is one of the companies we work with. They have a video that shows the farms, the process, the workers, and the Theobroma Cacao trees. The video is to show starting from harvest the cacao never gets above 118 degrees. The video is 3:43 Kosher Cacao All Good Stuff Cacao products are now kosher certified under the supervision of Michigan Kosher Supervisors

PERU – Can a chocolate connection between growers in the Peruvian rain-forest and purveyors of fine chocolate in Michigan make a difference to people in the Amazon struggling for a sustainable way to live?
“Yes,” said Nancy Dammann, of Charlevoix, a member of the team of rural community leaders, students, and Peruvian, American, other South American and European scientists who lead Visión Amazónica para la Sostenibilidad Integral (VASI), or in English — Amazonia Vision for an Integrated Sustainability.
Chocolate is the centerpiece of a three-pronged project involving planting and harvesting of sustainable crops, serious scientific research in poorly understood areas of Amazonia, and scholarships to enable students to continue studies beyond the small rural schools.
The concept of direct importation of cacao from Amazonia has caught the attention of several Michigan chocolatiers including Just Good Chocolate of Leelanau, Grocers’ Daughter of Empire, and Good Stuff Cacao of Metamora............................

To make the Michigan connection Gomez and Dammann met with the local chocolatiers.
“We met with chocolatiers in February and then again over the past summer before we returned to Peru,” Dammann reports. “And in Lima, we have been reaching out to leading Peruvian chefs and chocolatiers.”
After meeting with Gomez and Dammann this past summer, Mietling gave enthusiastic support to the project.
“We pray for God’s blessing and guidance and protection as they move forward with bravery and conviction out of the love for their children, community and future generations,” Mietling said.
The Peru organization works with Utopia Foundation in Traverse City and the web-based crowdfunding program Indiegogo to raise funds to support the organization. For more information,
“We have set an initial budget of just over $100,000,” Dammann reports. “We are raising funds through the Indiegogo campaign and through Utopia, which with its nonprofit status makes all donations tax deductible. We also are talking with other foundations and nonprofits. Our goal is that within five to seven years, VASI will become self-supporting, generating income that helps increase the farmer’s quality of life and community health, and able to spread in a sustainable way.”
