By Crio Brü7 Reviews
Expiration Date: Dec 2016
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.

Winding along its western front, the Cavalla River gives shape to the exotic Ivory Coast. The surrounding agricultural area is dotted with small, family-owned farms that produce the very best African cocoa for Crio Bru. The dark, earthy-toned beans are carefully hand-selected to enhance the full-bodied chocolate flavor, with hints of coconut and cinnamon.
The cocoa bean is one of nature's most amazing superfoods, offering sky-high antioxidant value, minerals and incredible health-promoting properties:
- Boost your immune system with antioxidants
- Increase energy naturally with theobromine (not caffeine!)
- Curb your appetite and lose weight
- Support your heart, brain and bones with magnesium
- Maintain healthy blood sugar levels with chromium and zinc
- Healthy and safe for kids

iHerb Customer Reviews
I think many people are disappointed because they expect a cup of milky sweet hot chocolate. And yes, it does brew into a cup of light brown murkiness. Having already known that, I was not disappointed with the good chocolatey aroma. Think of it as the chocolate version of coffee beans. I sweetened it with condensed milk for a morning drink. For a more desert-like treat, I add a spoonful of Dagoba Cocoa Powder. So good! I think this product is not for coffee drinkers - they would be disappointed by the lack of ooomph and colour. But it's good if, like me, you're not a coffee drinker and want something other than tea during breakfast.
I quit coffee almost a year ago, and have been drinking decaf, but I am now a convert. I think this is the lightest, and mildest, of the Crio Bru flavors, but it is still relish! Like the other reviews say, don't expect coffee or hot chocolate. It is a little thinner than both, but if you remove any expectations of either of these, you will be amazed. I love it with a little almond milk and coconut sugar.
