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.

I ordered this last year- tasted it and wondered what all the hype was about Valhrona. Then recently I read the reviews online accusing the vendor of selling fake product. So I decided to go to whole foods and buy some from the store.

The results are no comparison. They are very different product, the phony stuff being a very dark flavor with few creamy undertones- tastes fine- it's chocolate! The real stuff tastes more nuanced- has a creaminess to it, a body and richness.. a well rounded flavor.

Shame on these vendors who make a killing on selling lower price/quality products claiming gourmet names.

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"

There were some bad reviews when I bought this but after researching and checking prices I figured I would take a chance. Now I am out of it, its all gone, used up, fini' and I'm willing to break the bank for more. Compared to Hersheys and the one I get from Traders Joes, well let me just say, those two are still in my cabinet and I'm about to throw them out. I miss my Valrhona Chocolate. This rich, dark cocoa got me all the way together when making chocolate delights and I will definitely buy more.
