Good cocoa, not dutched. Fairtrade, schmairtrade?
This cocoa is good, apparently not dutched (so retaining its antioxidants) and it's not a bad price. For those concerned that it's not Fairtrade, they might at least acknowledge that it's Rainforest Alliance certified (and we must assume that 100% of the product is certified, since the seal bears no number indicating a lower percentage). Both Fairtrade and the Rainforest Alliance are schemes working for economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable production. Both are members of ISEAL, the global membership association for sustainability standards. The Rainforest Alliance does not guarantee a fair minimum price as Fairtrade does; they aim to grow farmer earnings by improving farming practices and productivity. Bear in mind also that though at present, for a product to carry its logo, every ingredient must be Fairtrade certified, they're bringing out a new sourcing program which allows products to contain only one Fairtrade ingredient, for example, Fairtrade sugar in a chocolate bar, which bar would then carry a modified logo indicating membership of the Fairtrade sugar program; no other ingredient need be Fairtrade (though, granted, that issue doesn't arise with a product that's 100% cocoa powder).

Gorgeous makes proper hot chocolate. 1 heaped teaspoon...Blend with little cold milk to a paste, sugar to taste, then hot milk stir. I make this with Tesco's Jersey Milk, now that is heavenly.

This cocoa powder is fantastic. It's a lot less expensive than some of the other cocoa powders out there, and it tastes exactly the same. I switched from Green & Blacks a while ago, and I am just as happy with this. I use it every day in my coffee and I love it. It is great for baking as well.

Didn’t buy this because of another review that pointed out that Tesco are not using Fair Trade cocoa.
Helps to reduce sugar intake
I use it with Oaty milk for a hot drink, lovely chocolate tasting without sugar
Not fair trade
Not made with fair trade cocoa so will no longer be purchasing this product.
FANTASTIC CHOCOLATE (COCOA) DRINK
Wonderful drinking chocolate,redolent of my youth! I prefer without any sweeteners very healthy in moderation and 'Yummy'
The real deal, simply the best
The best pure cocoa powder which has not been "dutched" which is why it will taste bitter, Bourneville now dutch their cocoa, which is absolutely disgusting. This product is the best cocoa on the market.
Great price for pure cocoa powder
Pure cocoa powder at a great price. For others who have said it's bitter, that is because it is pure cocoa with no sugar or anything. Great for cooking and hot cocoa.
