"I never heard of this fruit before and thought that I would give it a try. I was surprised at how good it was! And I loved that it was organic. I make my own chocolate and mixed this powder in with the bitter extra dark chocolate and it neutralized the bitterness making for a delicious sweet chocolate bar."

"If you are looking for a sweet replacement then this is NOT it. While Lucuma seems like a quality powder to add to smoothies it is not sweet and I do not like my foods too sweet. I use Mesquite and Maca Powder and find they are sweeter than this product."
