Ramstadt Breda Rich Dark Cocoa 16 oz

A full pound of fine imported cocoa

  • A 22 to 24% cocoa butter content compared to 8 to 10% for the national brand, making this nearly three times as good.

This is our original, bestselling cocoa. We use it in most of our mixes and sell it from the store.

Really good cocoa always has a high cocoa butter content or it just isn't that good.

You'll bake your best cookies and cakes ever. People are throwing away their old cocoa and changing to this.

Switch to the good stuff. We guarantee that it will take your baking to another level. If you're not astonished, we'll give you your money back.

Don't miss out on something this good. Give it a try. We guarantee it will make a big difference.

The Best Cocoa

As many reviewers have stated - I too have been using this cocoa for years. It’s one of the best I’ve ever used and easily elevates any recipe calling for chocolate. If you haven’t made it your ‘go-to’ cocoa - what are you waiting for-??

Dorothy Thompson

Recently, my husband stopped by not knowing that you had to pre-order before you picked up but you still served us….. thanks so much! Greatly appreciated because we are from Oregon!
