If you've ever had raw cacao nibs, you should realize immediately that these nibs are roasted. I contacted the seller about this, and here is what I said, and how they responded:

Me:
Hi. I received 5 lbs. of Cacao nibs yesterday, but they are not raw like I ordered. These distinctively smell and taste like roasted nibs. After I noticed this, I looked at the bag. The label says that it is Organic, but doesn't mention being raw (Organic, Herbal Essence Cacao Nibs). Do you want to send me some raw nibs or give me a refund?
Thanks,
Dan

Them:
Raw Nibs are so bitter if not roasted, All cacao nibs have to be roasted at low temperature.
All our customers love them, try it, if you chose not to use it, fine please return the 5 lbs bag for a refund.
thank you

So, they've decided that since raw nibs don't taste as good, they're going to roast them. (Why not throw in some cream and sugar while you're at it? They taste really good like that!). It's fine if you want to roast them, just don't market them as raw!
But, I decided to give them the benifit of the doubt. Maybe they "roast" their cacao at a low enough temperature to still be considered raw. I emailed them back:

Me:
At what temperature do you roast your cacao?

Them:
below 80 degrees.

Below 80 degrees? That's gotta be celsius right? A quick conversion tells me they roast their supposedly raw cacao at 175 degrees. That's not raw by any standard.
I decided to give them the benefit of the doubt one more time. They did say that "all cacao nibs have to be roasted..." So I emailed Navitas Naturals about their raw cacao nibs (I was eating Navitas nibs before trying these).

I have only eaten a few handfuls of these but have already bitten down on 3 pebbles. I almost broke my teeth! These cacao nibs also contain a lot of hard shells . Also, I could tell by the taste that they were roasted. The whole reason I bought them was because they claimed to be organic and raw. With all this deception, now I'm wondering if they're even organic. They do taste pretty good, though not as good as the truly raw nibs I bought before because the roasting imparts a slightly charred flavor.

These are a fantastic product. I first bought them because they were cheaper than Nativas, but I prefer them. The pieces are larger which is better for me because I snack on them. I don't use them for cooking or smoothies. I love the taste and texture. I seriously can't stop eating them. If you're thinking they'll taste just like dark chocolate you'll probably be disappointed. It's very apparent they're the source of chocolate, but they're definitely more bitter than even a very dark chocolate. My only concern is that I eat a lot of them and they're loaded with saturated fat. 1 ounce has 35% of your daily value of fat and 130 calories. I went through a 5lb bag in 3 weeks. I'm afraid to do the math. I just ordered another bag but I'm definitely going to slow down on them. - I just did the math and I hope I'm wrong - that's almost 4 oz. a day. 140% of my daily saturated fat and 520 calories. Yikes!

New: bought a second batch and they were awful. They were dried out and had tons of grit. Inedible. Was promised a refund which I didn't get. Too bad the 2nd bag was bad, because I loved the first. Wouldn't buy from this seller again.

i bought these since my raw cacao powder that i usually buy from alive and aware was out of stock, i thought what the hey this is a GREAT price. but like another reviewer said, seems almost too good to be true.
although they are a little greyer in color than the picture which shows a richer dark brownish cacao nibs, they still tasted great.
in fact, i was really surprised by how delicious they are straight out of the bag. yes they are a tab bitter, as you would expect raw (unsweetened) cacao to be, but i was pleasantly surprised that they were totally edible this way, sort of like chomping on a roasted coffee bean but actually not that bitter even. my husband and i can nibble on a small palmful, plain, and like it that way.
but of course it is a little better with something sweet ;) i like it in a snack mix of raw cashews (naturally sweet and mild- a great compliment to cacao nibs) with large coconut flakes, and if i add some dried fruit it is REALLY heavenly!!
i am so glad i can eat my cacao without the usual sugar over load.
i even suggest brewing it like loose leaf tea in a strainer, and you can re-use the "grounds" a few times. sweeten if you like, maybe add a little good raw cream, and it is better than coffee and better for you to boot!
i am a total cacao-holic now. 5 lbs is NOT too much, so go for it!! we use over a pound a month between mostly my husband and i ( okay we give some to our two small children, just not too much!). i also LOVE to share this great blessing from Mother nature :)
i hesitated to give this the full 5 stars, because like i said, i think the color indicated slightly less than the freshest quality . but it is a high 4 stars, and i still totally recommend it, especially at this price.

you will LOVE it!! peace be with you!
