great and delicious!
although they are a little greyer in color than the picture which shows a richer dark brownish cacao nibs, they still tasted great.
in fact, i was really surprised by how delicious they are straight out of the bag. yes they are a tab bitter, as you would expect raw (unsweetened) cacao to be, but i was pleasantly surprised that they were totally edible this way, sort of like chomping on a roasted coffee bean but actually not that bitter even. my husband and i can nibble on a small palmful, plain, and like it that way.
but of course it is a little better with something sweet 😉 i like it in a snack mix of raw cashews (naturally sweet and mild- a great compliment to cacao nibs) with large coconut flakes, and if i add some dried fruit it is REALLY heavenly!!
i am so glad i can eat my cacao without the usual sugar over load.
i even suggest brewing it like loose leaf tea in a strainer, and you can re-use the “grounds” a few times. sweeten if you like, maybe add a little good raw cream, and it is better than coffee and better for you to boot!
i am a total cacao-holic now. 5 lbs is NOT too much, so go for it!! we use over a pound a month between mostly my husband and i ( okay we give some to our two small children, just not too much!). i also LOVE to share this great blessing from Mother nature 🙂
i hesitated to give this the full 5 stars, because like i said, i think the color indicated slightly less than the freshest quality . but it is a high 4 stars, and i still totally recommend it, especially at this price.
you will LOVE it!! peace be with you!
Excellent Product at incredible price
Quantity: Just right, enough to make it worth the free shipping but not too much that you can’t consume it before it looses it’s freshness. My husband and I can easily go through a lb or more a month.
Quality: Excellent, they look and taste just like the nibs I purchased from whole foods a few months ago.
Price: Excellent, only a fraction of the price you’ll pay at a grocery store or other online sources.
Shipping: Prompt, well packaged.
Awesome quality CACAO nibs
High quality nibs without the WholePaycheck price
Not quite 5 pounds
LIARS!!!! This is not raw cacao!
Hi. I received 5 lbs. of Cacao nibs yesterday, but they are not raw like I ordered. These distinctively smell and taste like roasted nibs. After I noticed this, I looked at the bag. The label says that it is Organic, but doesn’t mention being raw (Organic, Herbal Essence Cacao Nibs). Do you want to send me some raw nibs or give me a refund?
Raw Nibs are so bitter if not roasted, All cacao nibs have to be roasted at low temperature.
All our customers love them, try it, if you chose not to use it, fine please return the 5 lbs bag for a refund.
So, they’ve decided that since raw nibs don’t taste as good, they’re going to roast them. (Why not throw in some cream and sugar while you’re at it? They taste really good like that!). It’s fine if you want to roast them, just don’t market them as raw!
But, I decided to give them the benifit of the doubt. Maybe they “roast” their cacao at a low enough temperature to still be considered raw. I emailed them back:
At what temperature do you roast your cacao?
below 80 degrees.
Below 80 degrees? That’s gotta be celsius right? A quick conversion tells me they roast their supposedly raw cacao at 175 degrees. That’s not raw by any standard.
I decided to give them the benefit of the doubt one more time. They did say that “all cacao nibs have to be roasted…” So I emailed Navitas Naturals about their raw cacao nibs (I was eating Navitas nibs before trying these). Navitas processes their cacao below 118 degrees, making their cacao truly raw. Halaleveryday is clearly a shady company who should not be trusted. Yes, these nibs taste better than raw nibs, but you’re not buying raw cacao for the taste. I advise staying away from Halaleveryday, Alive and Aware, and Herbal Essence products.
How are these roasted nibs? They taste much more like chocolate than raw cacao does, and are much crispier and easier to chew. There are definitely some hard pieces (pieces of shell, I assume?), so watch out for your teeth if you decide you can trust this company enough to eat their products.
Much cheaper than Navitas Naturals Cacao Nibs and just as good. These might be an acquired taste, but once you “get it” you’ll love them.
As a cacao nib connoisseur, I can say these are perfect. Read up, if you’ve never ordered nibs before, because these won’t be just like eating a candy bar only healthier. No, nibs are unique. They are going to be a tad bitter, and yes, maybe the crunch is a bit unlovely for some.
But for cacao-nib-lovers, these are every bit as good and fresh and tasty (and rightfully colored) as any I’ve ever gotten. Only difference: All the rest have cost a lot more.
Go for it, I say! Order these! Keep the extra in the fridge (I suppose you could even freeze ’em), and they’ll keep months. Yum…
