This ancient food of the Aztecs will give an indulgent chocolatey taste and richness to any dish you add it to. It can be used in desserts, smoothies, savoury sauces or to make chocolate! It is pretty much unsweetened chocolate! It is also just a great snack on the go, in place of that square of chocolate treat.
ROAR Chocolate Nibs are made from just three simple ingredients: ‘Fair Choice’ fairtrade certified raw nibs from the prized criollo and trinitario heirloom varieties of cacao, sweetened with the natural juice of the sugar cane and the root of the South American yacón daisy.
