Navita's Naturals Cacao Sweet Nibs (Product Review)

Note: Thank you to Navita Natural's for sending me these cacao sweet nibs. I had never had them before and THEY WERE DELICIOUS! I wasn't sure if they were going to be a bitter chocolate like baking chocolate, but, as it's name says, they were sweet. This is because they are sweetened with sugar cane juice (see ingredients below). As suspected, they are not as sweet as regular candy bars out there, but they definitely satisfied my chocolate cravings, and you can feel good eating them too, because of all the health benefits. They are a perfect addition to a lot of desserts. I recommend these!

Ingredients: certified organic cacao (Theobroma cacao), certified organic cacao nibs, certified organic sugar cane juice (Saccharum officinarum), certified organic cacao liquor (Theobroma cacao

From their website: "Navitas Naturals Sweet Cacao Nibs are partially ground cacao beans (the source of all chocolate products) taken to the next delicious step. These nibs are rolled into our delectable raw cacao liquor, and then lightly mixed with 100% organic sugar cane juice -- a combo that may just become your favorite cacao treat of all. This crunchy, sweet, all natural chocolate product is reminiscent of a chocolate-coated coffee bean, but even better! With a treat this healthful and invigorating, it doesn’t take much imagination to understand why ancient Mayan cultures crowned cacao “The Food of the Gods.” Add in the soaring levels of antioxidants, as well as trace minerals like magnesium and iron, and you can feel good in every way about enjoying this superfood."
