Fermentation is part of the cacao harvesting process, By stinhoutx
February 21, 2012
A number of reviews have remarked that the bag smelled fermented or like vinegar when opened. I experienced the same thing, and being a first time consumer of cacao nibs, specifically this brand, I was concerned that I received a bad batch. Upon further research, I learned that fermentation is a necessary part of cacao processing, used to reduce astringency and develop the flavor we associate with chocolate. Fresh cacao seeds have no chocolatey flavor at all. So, much like my first real piece of Roquefort cheese, I learned that this can be surprising in smell and taste to those of us who have only ever had the overly processed derivatives. While it is possible that some really did receive a compromised product, I found no detectable rancidity or otherwise off flavors in mine. I do pour the nibs into a bowl so they breath a little and this helps to dissipate the fermented aroma when I am eating some plain.This is an item you do not want to buy in quantity until you have a...
Great Coffee Substitute, By Amber's two cents
March 11, 2011
I was pleasantly surprised with the taste of this product because of the bad reviews on it. I like bittersweet chocolate though so, maybe that's why. I also mix it with yogurt as it says on the bag. The 'nibs' are more like crumbles however, that is inconsequential to me as I mix them. These have helped greatly with curbing my chocolate addiction and keeping me on track with my diet.
Will buy again!, By GOORGANIC
June 2, 2011
Now I can eat chocolate everyday! These are really good in yogurt and I know I'll find more uses. I will definitely buy this product again, most likely in bulk. I'm a health food junkie and nibs will probably be a new staple in my diet. In case you're wondering, I thought these were bite-size (from the picture) but they're actually little flakes. You shouldn't compare the taste to 'normal' chocolate because all you really taste is the tons of added sugar. There is no sugar in these, think bitter cocoa powder.
