"Chicory is a root that has been used in New Orleans to STRETCH coffee for a long time. It taste like NEW ORLEANS-A GREAT VACATION SPOT. It is a coffee substitute when simmered in water and has NO CAFFEINE. It has INULIN which is a carbohydrate fiber and good for the gut.. Something that taste good and that is good for you. Great beverage with Almond Milk, hot or iced. I use it in ROOT TEA that I make using CHICORY root, DANDELION root and BEET root. Check out the usefulness of these roots with THREE internet sources."
"I must have gotten spoiled growing up in the south where real genuine chicory was easy to come by. Here in the Midwest it's very hard to find anywhere to obtain a good product. This chicory is very smooth and has a delightfully nutty and malty flavour. I love it best with just basic steamed milk but it is also a great addition to any coffee that you may have in your home. Best chicory product I've found online and I love that Vitacost carries it at such a great price!"
"This Reminds me of my childhood - my mother used to put chicory in milk. I love to put a tablespoonful in hot water in a sauce pan - let it stew then pour a drink - later on, I add more water and bring to boil - another delicious drink but less strong."
"I bought the adapter for my Keurig so I can put this chicory in and brew, "on the go." I'm giving it a 5 star rating due to the fact that it is a very unique product and I'm glad it's available. As far as taste goes the transition from coffee is not seamless especially if your a "black" coffee drinker like me. If you add creamers and sugar I suppose it would be even closer in taste to the coffee your used to. The fact that chicory is loaded with good stuff like prebiotics is a good reason to give this stuff a shot."
"When the doctor told me I had to cut out all caffine, I truly did not think I could do it. I was a 3 to 4 cup a day coffeeholic. Thank goodness he recommended chicory root. Have been drinking this for almost 4 months and have not missed my coffee at all. Very rich, smooth taste, but you only need a little. I put 1/2 tsp in my single brew coffee pot and it works great."
"I love this stuff. I recently tried a different brand because it was cheaper and got overall good reviews. It is so bitter compared to Frontier. I had no idea how smooth and wonderful the Frontier chicory root was until I tried the other brand. Frontier had been the only kind I had used in the past, and from my bad experience, I will never stray again!"
"This was my first chicory try. Lots of flavor. I make a two cup pot, but only use about a half cup at a time, mixed with a half cup of alternative milk (the richer with fat, the better), and a tiny bit of stevia. Oftentimes I add a tsp or two of chia to make a sweet chicory pudding. Very yummy. The remaining liquid chicory goes in the fridge, and the grounds are stored in the freezer. I find chicory to be just as acidic as coffee, but without the caffeine that makes me manic. Recommend."
"the benefit of antioxidants and it's a nice go-to drink morning/noon/night. I followed the bag instructions and let 1/2 tsp steep in boiled water for 3-5 minutes. It basically allows the granules to release their nutty goodness into the water and settle. I really find it's a tasty and nice alternative to coffee. Beware of the last sip though if you don't strain the cup before drinking. :) Will buy again..."
"I use 1/2 tsp per mug of water, and guests can't even tell the difference (they think it is some specialty coffee brand). I have needed to come off of coffee for several years, so I started with half coffee and half chicory - was I sure surprised! I never missed the coffee, and gradually added more chicory, less coffee! And chicory is certainly cheaper, becasue I use so much less (1/2 tsp. chicory granules compared to a heaping tbl. of coffee). I have enjoyed this for several years now, and have helped friends who have wished to convert from coffee as well."
