Review 1 for Organic Traditions Cacao Nibs -- 16 oz
"I like organic cocoa nibs and add them to my greek yogurt. Like the nice crunch and slight chocolate flavor. I enjoy this brand but am comparing with Natierra organic nibs. I like the Natierra a bit more as it has a really nice aroma of chocolate.
I was using TerrAmazon cocoa nibs for several years and then found a good selection of different brands at Vitacost. Organic Traditions and Natierra come in larger packages with better prices, and I like them both."

"I had previously only tried sweetened cacao nibs and bought these since they were reasonably priced as well as being a great treat without ruining my healthy lifestyle. They are delicious!! So crunchy with an intense unsweetened chocolaty flavor. I only eat dark chocolate so someone who is used to semi sweet or milk chocolate may not enjoy munching these right out of the bag as I did. I add them to a lot of recipes as a garnish or an add-in. They stand up great when added to cereal as they maintain their crunch and flavor."
