Bob's Red Mill Toasted Carob Powder -- 18 oz
Different flavor, texture than expected
I purchased this product because I had been craving a good cup of hot chocolate, but due to my dietary restrictions, I find myself unable to indulge. :)
I was disappointed that there was not more information on this product from many of the sources I consulted. I suppose I was disappointed mostly because I didn't know what to expect, and what I got was just... different.
Does not taste naturally sweet. Has a funny texture. But I am getting used to it in small quantities. I recommend starting small and acquiring the taste, if you can.

great caffeine free substitute for cocoa powder
I started using carob powder as a substitiute for cocoa powder since it has no caffeine about 2 years ago (It was about 2 years ago that my stomach got really sensitive and I cut a lot of things out of my diet). I did not care for the taste of carob powder so I started adding cinnamon and or cloves powder to it. I dissolve a teaspoon of carob powder in a very small amount of boiling water and add cinnamon powder and cloves powder to it. Then I add organic soy milk, warm it for a little over a minute in the microwave and add a tablespoon full of raw honey to make a delicious warm drink. This brand was less expensive than some other brands so I started using it (the subtle differences in taste between different brands don't matter to me since I am adding cinnamon to my hot drink).
