100% Certified Organic Cocoa Powder Unsweetened
I'm confused...where is this from?
I like this cocoa powder, and the price is good. But I'm reading in the ad copy that it's made from the finest Italian beans and is also a Product of Peru. Does this mean that the cacau plants are growing in tropical Italy and then shipped to Peru where they are processed.
It would be nice to get this straight, and also to know how it's processed. If you want the nutritional benefits it shouldn't be processed at high temperatures. Same with making your own hot chocolate, I keep the water at or below 130F. Mixing it with boiling water is a good way to destroy the nutritional value of cocoa powder.

use it every day
One big scoop with a dash of stevia mixed with hot water gives a refreshing and healthy drink. Usually I'll have one to two cups per day.

Pure & Natural
This Cocoa powder is really good. I was looking for an organic Cocoa powder that's unsweetened and this fills the bill perfectly. Aside from the occasional smoothie, my main use is to flavor my energy gel that I make from scratch at home. I am a cyclist and I'm tired of the junk that's out there for us endurance athletes, so I make my own. But if it doesn't taste good, it doesn't get eaten. This Cocoa powder is just right. It's wonderfully rich in it's chocolate taste, and I control the sweetness with the other ingredients that I choose. I am so thankful that I found this!

Great to mix with Coconut Oil
I found a new recipe for cocoa and coconut oil chocolate and wanted a good source of powder cocoa. I went to the Grocery Store and purchased the brands available and something just doesn't taste real. This is real Cocoa without any additives as best as my taste buds can tell. And I am picky when it comes to natural food. The labels on the grocery store brands don't say anything added but something isn't right or is it me???

I am satisfied with this product. It does seem to be a bit gritty but does the job for puddings and cakes.

Off the charts GREAT!
I buy from Swanson several times a month, and don't normally write reviews,but after trying this product I ran to my computer. This stuff blew me away, I put some in my health shake and it was the BEST I've ever had. I think one person here didn't give it 5 stars... something about being mild. Maybe that's because there's no bitterness in it. All I can say is that it is THE best, period!

From a "Chocoholic"
Yum! Use it in brownies, cakes mixes, fudge, yogurt,and my own chocolate sauce made with agave syrup. You know what I find that is so convenient, the container, easy to get cocoa powder out with measuring cup.

This is a product that I have on hand and use everyday. I love the taste and the quality. There are many uses besides cooking. To many to mention, I won't be without it.

Pure cocoa at best price
Gone through 8 of these containers to date; excellent natural, unadulterated cocoa.
I use one heaping teaspoon daily in my morning protein shake.

A Non-Guilty Pleasure
I've just ordered my second jar. I add a table spoon or two to my daily smoothie; it tastes superb.
Swanson doesn't add sugar to their Coco powder so the calorie count stays low. Yet there is no bitterness. That is why I call it a non-guilty pleasure.
A great product!

Of course, it's well known that chocolate is good for you! This organic cocoa powder is heavenly in fudge, hot chocolate . . . well, you know all the things you can put chocolate in or over. And you can't get organic at the grocery store! So, this is the best all around!

This was the find of the new year! I tell everyone about Swanson because they're the best...that being said, I've had a few miss's...this isn't one of them!
I love/love this stuff, what can I say? "Got chocolate"? Yes, indeed I do...I'm all about healthy, and am an organic chef, spent oh, at least 15 yrs, turning calorie filled recipes into healthy yummy dishes. Go for it...you will not regret it, I'm back for more...

Nothing but cocoa
With many allergies, I love having this product that is nothing but cocoa. It makes very tasty cocoa drink. The container is not very convenient, being squat and bulky. It takes up more room than I like in the cupboard,

Best cocoa powder
I have tried several different brands and by far this one has the best taste & value. I also have bought it for friends & family and they love it too!!

This product is very good for taking my cravings for chocolate. I use it in the morning together with almond milk and carob powder to make it sweet. I also use it for desserts. It has no sugar at all and rich in antioxidants. Very good price and it is a healthy product.

Love the cocoa
I drink hot cocoa every morning, and good thing all of the sudden I just thought of Swanson when I ran out of the Starbucks hot cocoa from Costco (I buy lots of other Swanson products). I was so happy and bought 2 bottles. They're so good and organic, and of course from now on, this is the one I go to.
