Product Description

For your convenience, Olivenation re-packaged this item from a larger size Valrhona Cocoa powder bag into this 1 lb bag. Therefore, the item does not arrive in the manufacturers original packaging. The Valrhona unsweetened, dutched cocoa powder has a very pure and intense cocoa taste, with a very warm red mahogany color. It mixes extremely well in drinks and for baking. More importantly, pure cocoa allows one to control the level of sweetness and the calorie content. Valrhona is the difference between a good product and an outstanding one. Non-Meltable, can by shipped by ground all year. 100% Cocoa, 0% Sugar, 21% Fat Content.

I've used Valrhona cocoa for years. This isn't it.

Chefs and cooks who order Valrhona know what to expect from this brand of cocoa -- Valrhona is the most intense
cocoa -- with the most intense aromatics -- out there.

The product arrived in a generic plastic bag with no label, and was sealed with a twisty tie.
No jar, as pictured, no label of authenticity, no seal of freshness.

The plastic bag indicates this cocoa was filled from a big bulk box, a box that's probably not been
sealed up tight, been sitting awhile, and probably an old product. .

When you open a foil pouch of genuine Valrhona cocoa, the smell is so intensely aromatic,
others can smell it across a large room.

When I opened the plastic bag from my order, the cocoa smelled nothing like Valrhona.
This cocoa is dead -- it's either not Valrhona or stale Valrhona.

In any case, it's unacceptable, especially at $15 a pound. Don't waste your money.

Why is Caputo's packaging Valrhona this way, and not providing the product in a sealed jar,
as pictured in the Amazon listing?

In regards to freshness and aromatics and product acceptability, does Caputo's really think
the chefs and cooks who seek out Valrhona won't notice the huge difference between this dead cocoa and the real thing?

I have purchased several different cocoa powders for baking and beverage making. I usually use Van Houten or Bensdorf but was eager to try something new. The first Valrhona batch I received was in a plastic jar but the inner seal was open. The cocoa had a decidedly smoky taste and smell--like powdered ham stock. It was truly terrible. The company was quick to respond with a second jar, but that too had an open inner seal and smelled like smoked ham. Not good. It was pricey, so one should expect packaging that would protect the subtle flavors. The possibility of tampering is scary too. I seem not to be able to get a decent product. Very disappointing.

I tried this Valrhrona from this vendor for the first time. This product was bland with no Valrhona flavor. Maybe there was one tablespoon of cocoa powder in the whole entire pound to be able to call this Valrhona - but save your money. Not a good Valrhona product. True Valrhona is buttery, rich, a bit spicy, and sings with strong nuances of flavor and coats your mouth in round flavor. This product does not. Tastes just like any other cocoa powder out there.

Hmmmmm. This product arrived in a plastic baggie with no Valrhona label anywhere in sight and to be perfectly honest, I've been reluctant to try it. I contacted the seller and expressed my concerns and just to be fair I am posting their response.

"The Valrhona Chocolate Cocoa Powder 100% cacao 1 lb is repackaged in plastic resealable bags as Valrhona does not sell this format directly.

The cocoa powder is nevertheless made by Valrhona and it is the same product as the one you can find in 3 kilograms, 1 kilogram or 8.8 oz versions. The only difference is that the 1 lb version is a repacked item, so thus it will not have a Valrhona label, but other than that it is the same cocoa.

Please let me know if I can help you with anything else.

Regards,
Cristina"

I remain skeptical but others of you may not. As for now, the product will sit in my pantry probably to be thrown out at a later date.

UPDATE: After receiving the first email, the CEO of the Gourmet Food Store sent me the following note:

"I appreciate your concern, but please rest assured that it is 100% Valrhona Cocoa Powder. We are actually one of the largest distributors of Valrhona products here in the United States through our sister company. Valrhona unfortunately does not offer a 1 lb bag of cocoa powder, which we've found to be the most popular size for consumers, so we have gone ahead and created this bag ourselves, repacking it from the larger 6.6 lb box of Valrhona Cocoa Powder. I can't make any claims for the other sellers of the Cocoa Powder on Amazon, but you can rest assured that if you are buying it from Gourmet Food Store on Amazon, that you are buying genuine Valrhona cocoa powder. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,
Jon Knigin
C.E.O.
Gourmet Food Store"

My order was from Gourmet Food World and fulfilled by Amazon, just in case anyone wondered.
I have a small tub of Valrhona cocoa purchased from Whole Foods, so I was able to compare the cocoa powder I received with that. The product came in a sealed bag reading 'Goumet Imports'-Supplying the best with the best since 1989-Valrhona Cocoa Powder-Ingredients: 100% Cocoa Powder...Just for comparison to what you get. I know some reviews have stated they got something different (maybe those were before Amazon began fulfilling the orders?)

The taste, the color, the smell are identical to the cocoa powder I bought at Whole Foods. The flavor is deep, rich--has a slightly gourmet coffee quality in the flavor undertones. Makes the best brownies, cake, ice cream, et al. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Hello,
I know the Valrhona chocolate, since I've shopped in France for the chocolates. I knew their excellence in taste, in presentation of the boxes and the courtesy of the personnel at the counter in the store. So. when I was researching cocoa powder to buy and found Valrhona, I knew that what I would get was going to be excellent.
Plus the delivery was very quick with Amazon.
Thanks.
