By TerrAmazon26 Reviews
Expiration Date: Mar 2015
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

TerrAmazon Cacao Nibs are made from "Criollo" beans - the finest and rarest variety of cacao.
Discover this precious gift from naturel originating from the depths of the Amazon Rainforest. Enjoy its aroma and delight yourself with the subtle bittersweet experience. For centuries, playful monkeys and arboreal kinkajous have enjoyed the cacao fruit's slightly sweet and refreshing pulp. These small mammals ingest the fruit and toss the seeds as willing participants in nature's way of disseminating cacao growth throughout Latin America for all future civilizations.
Our cacao nibs are rich in dietary fiber and are harvested under organic methods. We work to maintain the sustainability chain that preserves the rainforest and its people.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I just purchased the large bag by Frontier Natural Products, and not having previously tasted cacao nibs I didn't know what to expect. When I received it in the mail, I noticed that the bag had a small puncture, but I tried them anyway. The taste was bitter and what I am guessing to be the taste of rancid nibs. I thought they were so nasty that I had thrown them away. Yet, I've heard how delightful the taste of cacao nibs were, so I went ahead and tried TerrAmazon brand. The taste of TerrAmazon is 5x better than Frontier Naturals. No bitter taste and really delicious. If this is your first time trying cacao nibs, they are not sweet. Just nutty with the smell of rich chocolate and crunchy texture. I add them to a homemade trail mix that includes nibs, mulberries, raisins, cashiews, pistachios, and goji berries.
Tastes outright bitter and yucky but interestingly, I keep wanting to eat this yuckiness when I add it to cereal with milk. :P
