Chocolate covered cocoa nibs.

Longing for a wholesome chocolate snack? How about chocolate nibs, roasted bits of cocoa drenched in dark chocolate?

They're almost as nourishing as raw cacao nibs, but they taste so much better.

With a chocolate coating, they're more like candy with a really nutritious center.

So if you're not ready for raw but want the next best thing, try them.

They're just right if you find the concept of natural food more appealing than its taste.

Chocolate Cacao Nibs

What are they? A healthy chocolate snack that tastes like candy.

Nibs are crunchy pieces of cocoa bean that are fermented, roasted, and dipped in dark chocolate.

They retain more cocoa goodness than highly processed chocolate products.

Roasting does destroy some of the beneficial antioxidants in the cocoa. But believe me, it's necessary to improve their chocolate flavor.

The taste of raw cocoa nibs is well...kinda different. Not a taste you would enjoy unless you're a wild child.

Nibs candy tastes s-o-o-o much better. Ok, occasionally a piece will have a slightly bitter taste. But that just makes them more fun to eat.

You never know when you're going to get a little surprise. Not to worry, the dark chocolate coating lessens that.

They're so good you can eat healthy and enjoy it. No guilt and no sacrifice.
