Cacao Crunch is a super delicious all-organic blend of highly anti-oxidant crushed chocolate beans, coated in a paste of roasted chocolate liquefied nibs, then rolled in 'panela' (an unrefined evaporated sugarcane juice treat common in South America). A chocolate explosion with a lightly smoky, nutty, coffee-like flavour!
Cacao Nibs are highly anti-oxidant, and panela is absorbed more slowly into the blood stream than processed cane sugar.
Some common questions...
1. What is the difference between the Nibs and Cacao Crunch?
Nibs are unsweetened and raw – but Cacao Crunch is not considered a raw product as the raw nibs have been rolled in roasted chocolate paste and panela sweetener.
2. How much caffeine does cacao have?
All natural products vary, but it is generally considered to have about 1% caffeine (as compared to tea at 4% and coffee which can be more than 10% !!)
3. So why do I feel so good eating cacao?
Cacao has other naturally occurring phytochemicals like theobromine (considered an aphrodisiac), phenylethylamine (PEA – released when we fall in love), and anandamide (the ‘bliss' chemical).
4. Is Cacao Crunch considered a ‘raw' product?
No, because the raw nibs are then rolled in chocolate paste (roasted, liquefied nibs) and panela (cane sugar juice evaporated with heat)

Enjoy as is, straight from the bag as a healthier alternative to chocolate. Substitute for chocolate chips in muffins, brownies, cakes and biscuits. Add to cheesecakes, muesli, yoghurt, trail mix, crumble toppings. Make bliss balls, truffles, pressed nut or crumb dessert bases. Sprinkle over ice cream, gelato, hot cocoa or cappuccino.
These nibs are from the best tasting premium criollo variety.
