UPDATE: I've been eating these nibs for a few weeks now and prefer them over Terrasoul (although I still like Terrasoul). I have to say that the 1-star reviews are from people who are simply uninformed about cacao nibs, thinking they are a healthy chocolate chip. Do your research and understand what you're buying before you downgrade a quality ingredient because you don't know about a product.

I've used Terrasoul raw cacao nibs for a few years in my smoothies, and I decided to try Nativas when I went to reorder after reading some of the reviews. I bought both and did my own taste test at home. So Terrasoul's nibs are fermented which is what makes a HUGE difference. The Nativas nibs are rich and chocolaty, and they have a good mouth feel. There are some larger chunks in the Nativas so it's less uniform. Terrasoul's have a little more consistency in size, but the Terrasoul nibs have a sour note from the fermenting (it's similar to espresso in that regard). I've only had one smoothie with the Nativas nibs so I'm not sure about the entire package, but there seemed to be fewer harder pieces in it than what I find in the Terrasoul nibs. The Terrasoul is priced better, but I think I'm leaning more to the Nativas brand now. Time will tell, but I am happy with both brands for my needs.
