You definitely don't use this product for the taste. The awful taste however (which honestly isn't as bad as many reviewers make it out to be) serves its purpose by killing off the creepy crawlies that are living in your body. This genuinely worked for me, as the first time I used it I had diarrhea and lots of small threadlike things in the stool.
By combining this with 5HTP and choline before bed, you can have incredibly vivid dreams, which really helps with attaining lucid dreams. Allegedly this also helps with memory and learning, but I have not used it for that purpose so I can't testify about that.
This oil really packs a punch. Me and my girlfriend have tried more than 10 different essential oils in our oil diffuser, and this one is by far the strongest. You only need 1 or 2 drops of this to get an adequate amount of smell. Don't go overboard or you'll end up doing what we did, having the entire apartment stinking of overpowering cinnamon and us becoming queazy from it! The smell itself is great though, as long as it's not overdone. I haven't tried using this in food yet, but I imagine it would be quite nice in raw cakes or the likes.
I absolutely love this product. Me and my girlfriend have tried over 10 different oils in our oil diffuser and we both agree, this one is by far the best. It smells incredibly good, almost like candy. Far superior to both orange and tangerine in my opinion. It is also amazing when added to my homemade coconut oil toothpaste, making the toothpaste taste like candy!
Definitely enjoyed this product. Try making chocolate with it, my recipe goes as such: mix melted coconut oil, carob powder, cocoa powder, some stevia for sweetness and add crushed raw almonds/macadamia/hazel nuts. Place in the freezer for about 25-30 minutes. You now have amazingly tasty and most importantly, healthy, chocolate!
Baking soda is essential in my household, where it is used not only to replace shampoo when washing my hair, but is also an important ingredient in my homemade coconut oil + essential oil + stevia + baking soda toothpaste which I've used for over a year now. I'm so glad that I'm able to buy such a large quantity of this at such a fair price, especially considering it is not as readily available in my country as it is in the USA.

I love this stuff. Pure 100% xylitol, and according to the manufacturer it's strictly from tree sources and not GMO corn. It tastes and looks almost identical to white sugar, although it has a slight "cooling" effect/flavor, which I enjoy. Supposedly xylitol is great for dental health as well, which is another reason why I like this stuff.
I've used these to whiten my teeth with great success. Simply open a capsule and mix with some water, and dip your toothbrush in it. Your toothbrush and entire mouth will turn black while you brush your teeth with it, but don't worry, it washes off real easy and you'll be left with slightly whiter teeth! Do this every day for two weeks and you'll notice a pretty surprising improvement in the whiteness of your teeth. I also know you can take these to minimize the bad effect of junky food, a purpose which I haven't really used them for since I rarely eat junky food! Supposedly these are great to avoid a hangover also, when taken with vitamin C.

until I stopped using them. I noticed that my memory, and especially my fact and word-retrieving abilities were superior while I took this herb. Pretty fascinating stuff.

Annoyed that the ingredients list only states "chocolate" instead of all the ingredients in the chocolate. All in all this product is almost 30% sugar, in other words, not really a healthy snack after all .... The bag itself was mostly air, only 1/4th of the bag is filled with the actual food. Naturally, I feel deceived by the packagings health claims and size. When it comes to the taste, it tasted fine, nothing special. I'd rather have my own cocoa + coconut oil raw chocolate. Bottom line: won't be buying again.
