Fresh and good

I've never tasted cacao beans before. I think they should be exactly like these. These ones are very fresh, with rich flavour. The taste is mainly bitter. The skin of the beans is thin, and is shelled well not always. I need a small knife to put it away. Some beans crumble at once after shelling. So this snack nedds to be prepared before eating (shelled). That's why I like cacao nibs more, espesially sweet nibs by Navitas Naturals. Won't by again: I just wanted to know, what are whole cacao beans and I'm not impressed by them.
Firm shell, soft inside

I haven't tried other brands yet. These are good, and you owe it to yourself to try raw cacao beans at least once. Imagine the darkest chocolate, with no added sweetener but surprisingly not bitter either. One or two of these satisfy my chocolate cravings very well. One star off for being a smaller package than I imagined.
Good product, but I personally prefer nibs

The package is so small, I run out of beans in 4 hours. But then lunch came and saved me.
Taste susprising but good at the end

I decided to get this cacao beans in my more organic diet as I needed too magnesium. I use them once a week generously mixed with my breakfast (cereals, yoghurt, fruit preserve and fresh fruits with tea. And they blend well. I just can't tell wether or not there is an effect but anyhow I will purchase them again.
Very crisp/fresh beans.

I was surprised about the freshness of the beans: very crisp.
