Nature’s Chocolate Chips
Viva Naturals Organic Cacao Nibs are sourced from premium-quality Criollo cacao beans. These beans offer exquisite chocolate aroma and taste, without the bitterness traditionally found in cacao. Rich in flavor with a unique, crunchy texture, Viva Naturals Organic Cacao Nibs are USDA-certified organic, non-GMO, gluten-free and free from unwanted pesticides and harmful impurities.
Note: Since our Cacao Nibs come from crushed cacao beans, your pouch may contain a few stems and bits of hard shells — similar to unpopped popcorn kernels. When sprinkling on foods, keep an eye out for them and discard.

Top with Viva Naturals Organic Raw Cacao Nibs and chopped pecans to taste.
Cacao is rich in vitamins, minerals and protein that help fuel energy levels all throughout the day. Naturally-occurring theobromine serves as a powerful stimulant as an alternative to caffeine products or supplements, limiting unwanted jitters.
