I'm not sure why this is not readily available in stores but it is the best! It has a better, smoother texture, better flavor and even a richer color than the Hershey and Nestle cocoa available in stores. If I ever make something using a different brand of cocoa I feel like I'm giving inferior quality food to my family and friends. It is worth ordering!

I have used this cocoa for a few years. The recipe on the box for brownies has always gotten me tons of compliments and it is a brownie like no other I've ever made....I buy this at a local store and it is cheaper than Hershey's cocoa and frankly better tasting, richer.
I use this in any recipe calling for cocoa and it makes a great cup of hot cocoa too.

I purchased this cocoa powder from Amazon in bulk and have been using it for a year now. I LOVE how well this brand of cocoa mixes into other food, which you'll appreciate if you are making something like a mousse. Wonderful product!

Found this at a local store. It looks cheep, butI liked it better than both the Hershey and Ghiridelli varieties I've tried (as well as a cocoa from the bulk section). I could never get from scratch brownies to taste as good as my childhood memories until I used this brand. Also makes excellent hot cocoa.

SOmeone reviewed about a chemical flavor? I've never noticed any, and I can taste the chemicals in many frozen yogurts (ie golden spoon). But, diferent flavors pick up more on different peoples tongues, so who knows.

I found the Saco cocoa powder at a grocery store and tried it once and loved it - then they no longer carry it. It has a much richer chocolate flaver far better than Hershey's or Nestle's so I was happy to find it on Amazon. Thanks!

I love this cocoa, but if you're counting calories be aware that the nutrition info on the label (which you can view near the top of the product page) is a fairy tale.

A single serving (1 tablespoon, 5g) is listed as 10 calories yet contains 1g of fat, 2g of carbs, and 4g of protein (which comes to 7g and 33 calories, not 5g and 10 calories). So something, somewhere has to give.

I looked up this exact same product on the Saco site and they post different numbers (1g fat, 3g carb, 1g protein) which at least add up correctly on weight, but they don't include calorie information (which should be 25 calories if the nutrition information is accurate).

As I consume vast quantities of this powder in a low-carb diet, understating the calories by a factor of three or more is not a minor issue.

I'll keep using it, but with muted zeal.

This hot cocoa is definitely one of my favorite things — the taste is rich and smooth...and oh so satisfying. A perfectly cozy, satisfying way to end the day, warm up from the cold, or curl up with a good book. I forgot to mention, that Saco cocoa both cheers me up and mellows me out. It is far superior in texture and flavor to even the most expensive brands. I like that it is unsweetened so that I can sweeten it to taste!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Shala Kerrigan TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on November 26, 2011
This cocoa is a blend that balances the delicate flavor and low acidity of Dutched cocoa with the strong flavor of natural cocoa. Since both types of cocoa have strong advantages in recipes, for an all around cooking cocoa, this is my favorite.

The flavor, just plain, unsweetened, is reminiscent of milk chocolate rather than bittersweet. The Dutch cocoa has a lot of the acid neutralized in it to make it milder, the natural cocoa is still very strongly chocolate. The aroma is just wonderful.

Dutched cocoa also dissolves better in recipes for more incorporation. It's not as chocolate-y as natural cocoa though.

This blend dissolves well and smoothly, and while it's not as strong as Scharffen Berger (Scharffenberger) Natural Cocoa Powder, the smoothness makes it perfect for puddings and hot chocolate. It's also good just as a cocoa garnish on things.

Because of the lower acidity, for baking soda type baking, I recommend using natural cocoa instead or substituting buttermilk for any milk in the recipe because baking soda works by reacting with the acid in the cocoa in some recipes. I also recommend natural cocoa if you prefer a very strong chocolate flavor.

My favorite hot chocolate is a tablespoon of this, a cup of almond milk, and a tablespoon of honey, heated up over a medium heat and whisked until everything is mixed. Wonderful on very cold days.
