I buy this product often but as a single option at 10oz for $12.99 this is totally overpriced. If they bundle into a package and get this down to roughly $5.99/can then it rivals the Ghiradelli shop online site. We use this to make homemade mocha coffees with our Cuisinart burr grinder. That combo plus a few syrups has saved us a fortune - but avoid this overpriced option from Amazon.

I was looking for a nice cocoa to buy from Amazon but I can get this exact same item at my already-overpriced local health food shop for $4.79. The suggested retail price on the one I bought at the store says $5.99 so all I can assume is that Amazon simply has the price wrong on this item. How could it possibly be over $12? Maybe they could send three for that price.

Amazon? Really? $12.99? Is that a joke? I just bought this same exact item at Whole Foods for $4.99.

Over the years, I have tried various brands of unsweetened cocoa powder to use in baking and for mixing in my morning coffee. Ghirardelli's "Natural Unsweetened Cocoa" has become my number one cocoa of choice. It has a very rich flavor and is finely ground so it mixes readily.

I purchase approximately one cannister each month from my local Whole Foods market, where the price has been $4.99 per 10-ounce/283-gram container for some time now. The price for the very same item on Amazon's website (actually one of their resellers) is currently way too much for the product. Hopefully Amazon (or their reseller) will price the product more reasonably, as have other grocery retailers.

Nonetheless, Ghirardelli's "Natural Unsweetened Cocoa" is an excellent product.

Once I used Ghirardelli's unsweetened baking cocoa I have never gone back to any other brand. The flavor is rich, pure and really captures the essence of what chocolate is SUPPOSED to taste like. Compared to other brands like Hershey's and Nestle, Ghirardelli's cocoa is much, much darker which surprised me a little. I have tried to use other brands since, but their flavors don't even come close to comparing. Maybe I'm a chocolate snob, but I can't use any other cocoa (not to mention chocolate chips) now besides this one.
The only downside is that the unsweetened cocoa is very difficult to find. Ghirardelli does sell it through their website however. ([...]) I highly recommend this product. But be warned - you might not be able to go back to the other cheap stuff!

This is the best and we love it but don't buy it here. $12.55?! Even at our highest priced Supermarket it $5.29 and our lowest priced market has it for $4.29.

Ever since my curiosity was piqued at the tender age of two, when I, while pretending to nap, witnessed my (very pregnant) mother wolfing down milk chocolate Hershey Bars, I have been obsessed with chocolate. By the time I started school, I knew that every single member of my family --- siblings, parents, grandparents, and cousins --- was afflicted with chocoholicism. As an adult, I realized that this trait must be genetically dominant, since all of my children, and each of my nieces and nephews, has no willpower when confronted by the presence of "C". Thank heavens that modern medicine has made us aware that this is not a disease, but merely an ultra-healthy yearning to keep antioxidants flowing into our bodies at a rate adequate to maintain our physical well-being, psychological balance, and generally off-beat sense of humor!

Since I am the premier baker of this extended family (Look, I see no reason to affect false modesty here! Each of my closest relatives will readily admit to having been born with serious kitchen-utensil-and-cookbook-direction-reading impairment.), my kitchen must be stocked at all times with multiple cans of Ghiradelli unsweetened cocoa and several bags of Ghiradelli chocolate chips, both semi-sweet and double-chocolate. These items provide the essence of my chocolate cakes; frostings, fillings, ganaches, glazes, and fudge; brownies; cookies; puddings; and Mexican "mole" sauces. No other brand of chocolate, at any price, comes close to the taste and finish of Ghiradelli.

Hint: for cakes, brownies, and buttercreams, instead of just baking chocolate or just cocoa, try using equivalent parts cocoa (dissolved in hot coffee, milk, or cream) and melted double-chocolate chips. I consider 1/4 cup packed and then sifted cocoa to provide taste equivalent to about 2/3 cup double-chocolate chips.

ENJOY! ------ Beth Baker
