Eat with your Eyes: Kakosi Nibbles

Kakosi Nibbles

There are so many things to love about this. Let’s start with the package. The tin is adorable and most of all, function. The top slides open a little or a lot to dispense chocolate covered cacao nibs.

So it’s a tin of nibs? What’s so special about that these days? These are single origin criollo nibs from the Ocumare Valley (my favorite).

I picked up this sample earlier this year at ExpoWest (a natural products show). Now they just need to get them in stores.

  1. A similar product is available at Trader Joe’s. I don’’t know about the single-origin status, but they are dark chocolate-coated and delicious!

    Julia - I picked up the Trader Joe’s ones, which I think is made by SweetRiot ... or at least the tin is the identical size. Both a great brands, though also expensive. (As I suspect these are too.)
