Off smell and taste after baking
Reviewed in the United States on July 21, 2020
After reading reviews and being the chocolate lover that I am, I was so excited to try this cocoa powder. As soon as it arrived, I compared it side by side with my usual nestle cocoa powder, and there was a huge difference in the smell. Nestle smells like nothing compared to this. Just bland nothing. This cocoa powder has a wonderfully decadent chocolate smell which made me even more eager to try it, so I whipped up my usual brownie recipe and... meh. It had a strange smell and taste after baking like something stale or rancid. Perhaps it was stored incorrectly before it shipped to me. I don’t know, but at $25 for a bag, I am incredibly disappointed, and the fact that this smelled so amazing in the bag made it an even bigger letdown. Maybe I just got unlucky and got a bad bag, but I’m not willing to take a chance on it again with the cost being so high. Guess I’m back to nestle until I find a good organic alternative. Too bad this wasn’t it.
