These heirloom cacao beans are loaded with more flavor, aroma, and zing than nibs and cacao powder. Why? Just ask any coffee connoisseur which is better: fresh coffee beans or pre-ground coffee. They'll tell you that the aroma, flavor, and purity of coffee last longer in the whole bean. The same is true for cacao.
Cacao beans are the original dairy-free, sugarless chocolate: crunchy, flavorful and packed with powerful nutrients, cell-protecting antioxidants, and natural mood-boosters. Simply snack on a handful of these crunchy treats for a concentrated burst of nutrients and energy that will keep you whistling all day!
Revered by ancient cultures as the food of the gods, Cacao was once traded as currency. Today, science is catching up with the ancients: these sugarless treats provide more cell-protecting antioxidants than any food on earth! Plus, they contain mood-boosting phytochemicals (including theobromine and anandamide) and they provide some of the same molecules your brain produces when you're happy or in love. Even the fats in cacao are good for you — so snack away!
