The product itself seems ok - it's nice and creamy - except for the smell. The one that I got doesn't smell 'rancid' as one reviewer wrote but has decidedly petro-chemical hint to it, like motor oil or something. Maybe they got something wrong in the mix. It's not outright horrible, but more of a "not pleasant" smell. I'll use it on my legs or something and not on my face.
I read the reviews and the list of ingredients and couldn't imagine it, so I just had to try it. In texture, it's kind of like Japanese 'furikake.' but that's usually extremely salty. This product, as others have mentioned, is sweeter. I've been using it on salads and on beans for a non-oil, non-salt flavor enhancer.

But I accidentally clicked on the stars and couldn't get out of this review page so I'm giving a neutral 3 stars. iHerb, of course, shipped quickly and I'm glad they make it so easy to try different supplements.

Skin appears fresher, plumper. (Hey I'm 50 - this is important!!)
I don't feel any tingling. Skin does seem to have fewer fine lines the morning after a night application.
Seems to be working. Skin products are very subjective. I don't know why but skin feels tight after application; I always use a light moisturizer afterward. I do believe some of the finer lines are less visible.

I do love these! Try them and see.
It don't burn like some mouthwashes. And my teeth are really a little whiter! Not like a professional treatment, but still very satisfying results. I swish then use a brush (after brushing with toothpaste.) Persistent halitosis gone too. I will definitely buy this again.

I don't know if I'm being swayed by the product description or not, but it seems to me this is richer and yet somehow milder than other cocoas. I guess the word would be smooth. Mixes well into banana smoothies too! Try it in a frozen banana & cocoa "ice cream" - just put in frozen 'nanners, cocoa to taste and a little milk or nut - soy - rice milk. WOW. Low calorie and sooooo tasty. Of course it's also good in winter as a cocoa drink or in baked products. I've used this Rapunzel cocoa in lots of stuff, always that rich, smooth flavor. Seriously - try it and you'll taste the difference.
