Chocolate Connoisseur

Our chocolate covered cashews have lived a surprisingly long and complex life by the time you savor them.  Cashews grow on crooked, rather short evergreen trees only near the equator.  The bush-like plant produces a sweet, succulent fruit with a kidney bean shaped appendage where the nut resides.  The nut has an outer shell that covers both the edible kernel and a caustic layer of oil that must be removed before the nut is consumed.  

Once the nuts are safely harvested and roasted, we coat them in quality dark chocolate using one of the most ancient forms of candy making called panning.  Egyptians first developed this process of coating nuts by rotating them in a bowl while sweet liquid was drizzled atop, evenly covering them.

Our top grade, whole kernel cashews are covered with a shiny, dark brown layer of chocolate.  It is a pleasant surprise to learn that this satisfying indulgence is not a guilty pleasure thanks to health benefits provided by both chocolate and cashews. Dark chocolate is full of antioxidants that are shown to lower blood pressure and cholesterol.  Additionally, not only do cashews have a lower fat content than most nuts, they are high in oleic acid, the healthy fat that also promotes heart health.

5.0 Speedy service!

by from Sydney, Nsw on

My husband and I first tried the chocolate coated cashew nuts in Santiago airport. In transit on the way home, the airport had sold out and we were disappointed we couldnt buy any to bring home. I bought some via the website as a Christmas present and they arrived in super speedy time to Australia, in perfect condition of course I had to open a packet to try them!. Very impressed with the quality and the delivery and cannot fault the product in any way especially coming all the way to Sydney. Thanks Cafe Britt!

1.0 Arrived melted and rotten

by from Wellesley on

My box arrived and all packages looked normal so we unpacked them and thre out receipt and box. A few hours later we went to try them and each package opened was all stuck together and the chocolate was a weird white color. I did not attempt to return as we threw out receipt. Literally threw my money in the trash this time!

5.0 Best Souvenir Ever

by from Chicago on

pEarlier last month I visited Costa Rica for the first time ever. While on tour at the Sloth Sanctuary I saw these chocolates in their gift shop. I picked up a little 6oz tin of the cashews and I am so glad I did. I didnt eat them right away but when I finally broke the seal on them and pulled off those two lids I was glad I bought them home. The chocolate is delectable and the nuts crunchy and tasty. I like them very much and if I ever get the chance to visit Costa Rica again Ill definitely be buying another tin or bag of these nuts./p
