Rated 5 out of 5 by sam2530 Great in smoothies!
I have been using this product for well over a year. I put 2 heaping tablespoons in my smoothie in the morning. Not only is it a great antioxidant, it gives me a "kick" similar to caffeine without the side effects.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Utahdawn Cocoa
First of all, I love Swansons. Buy from them all the time. I have given up using most cocoas because of the very high cadmium content. I subscribe to Consumer Lab and looked up cocoa there, because of my concerns with cadmium. Consumer Lab does not recommend many of the cocoas on the market because of their high cadmium content. They do recommend Swanson, as the cadmium is very, very low. If you are buying just for flavor, that is good news. However, if you are buying for health benefits, the Swanson brand is very, very low in bioflavonals, so you would not be getting the health benefits you think you are. Because of this, I would give it a rating in the medium range, and would recommend it for flavor but not for the health benefits.

I use this in an organic avocado pudding recipe and it gives it a rich chocolate flavor. Definitely a quality product.

Excellent product; happy to be able to choose my own sweetener. Some cocoa powders give me acid reflux. This one does not and that's a huge plus. Besides that it really tastes good! I don't plan to run out of this.

Smooth, rich cocoa for a low price - and it's organic! I think this was even cheaper than the more processed cocoa from the store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aspiritedlady Quality organic cocoa
This is bit pricey, in comparison to regular cocoa you can find on your local grocery shelves, but it is worth the extra cost. The taste is rich and flavorful and makes a big difference in any baking I do with cocoa powder. I also add some to my morning smoothie. I love this cocoa powder, but now I can't enjoy even high quality store brands after discovering this gem from Swanson! Try it, you'll be so glad you did!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jrm15 Best Cocoa Powder!!!!
I purchased this powder and we loved it so much that this time I ordered 3! I make my son's chocolate milk with it. He loved Nesquik but it is full of "junk". This is a much better product and the chocolate milk even taste better. I didn't tell my very picky son I switched, I just made it and he never said anything. I mix a cup of water with 2/3 cup cocoa powder in a small pot over med. heat. Stir constantly! When it starts to heat up I add 3/4 cups of organic sugar (any kind). I let it boil for a few minutes to thicken up. Lower heat and let simmer, constantly stirring for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add a pinch of salt and 1/2 tsp of vanilla. Let cool completely and pour in jar. Store in fridge. I mix the syrup with milk in a 1/2 gallon mason jar. It will settle at the bottom so I shake before I pour.
I also use this cocoa powder in smoothies, muffin recipes, banana and avocado pudding, and anything else that calls for cocoa powder!

Rated 4 out of 5 by whomnever 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TBob 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.

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by notomarx 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by meta99 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!

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.

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by QuickSteel 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...
