Thousands of years ago, the ancient Mesoamericans discovered the health-promoting properties of the cacao tree (Theobroma cacao) and cultivated it as a source of medicinal food. They believed that food and drinks made from cacao seeds were gifts from the gods.
The Mayans and Aztecs used cacao for many things, from official and religious ceremonies to personal consumption. The cacao tree was so revered by these ancient peoples that they even used cacao beans as a form of currency.
Today, you can enjoy cacao products in the form of sweet and creamy chocolate, mouthwatering cocoa beverages, and raw or roasted cacao nibs. Groovy Bee® Organic Raw Cacao Nibs allow you to enjoy cocoa in its purest and healthiest form -- raw and without any added sugars, just like how the ancient Mesoamericans used to consume it.
