GY cacao paste is made from the highly prized Ecuadorian Arriba Nacional bean (aka cacao Arriba, or cacao Nacional). Arriba is a fine flavoured bean characterized by fruity and floral notes, and unique to Ecuador. Our paste is certified organic, Rainforest Alliance certified, common allergen-free, non GMO, naturally vegan and delicious!

The beans are hand-selected, fermented and dried to perfection. The skins are removed from the dried bean (aka winnowed) then ground into a liquid, tempered, cooled into a solid form and kibbled for ease of use. Our cacao is lab tested, clean and pure, never “Dutched” nor treated with toxic chemicals. GY cacao paste is low temperature processed from start to finish to maximize quality and taste while maintaining nutritional integrity.

Our farmers harvest fully mature ripened pods from trees grown in mineral-rich volcanic soil. The plantation from which we source is known for their high quality low cadmium fine flavour cacao. Our supplier has developed and implemented the Native Cacao Farming Initiative, which is an ongoing free education and training program for the cacao harvesters and processors. It is important to us that the Ecuadorians responsible for supplying us our unique cacao are well taken care of; we believe in people over profits. We lab test each lot of raw materials to ensure our high standards are met or exceeded. 

Did you know?

  • Cacao may be naturally mood boosting.
  • Cacao may be a natural energy enhancer, aphrodisiac and natural appetite suppressant.
  • Cacao is a good source of magnesium and other plant derived nutrients.
  • So much more...

Food safety is of primary importance and we are happy to share with you that our Ecuadorian partner holds the following certifications; Organic, UTZ, Rainforest Alliance, Kosher, Halal, Non-GMO, FSSC 22000 Food Safety System Certified, ISO 9001:2015, GMP, BRC Certified.  Further steps have been taken to ensure the cacao is non-irradiated and common allergen-free.

Suggested use:  GY cacao paste is ideal for making and adding to hot beverages (hot cocoa, coffee, chaga tea, elixirs.) smoothies, trail mix, desserts and other chocolate creations. Try making your own dark chocolate bar, truffles or bark (+nuts, seeds & dried fruit). Cacao paste is every similar to baking chocolate- it melts like chocolate and is 100% cacao so do not expect it to taste sweet (:

    Melted 5Kg Bag of Cacao

    Published by Saint Adeogba, DN, PhD on 14th Aug 2022

    I haven’t been able to explore the quality of the cacao itself yet. Because I received it as one big blob of melted cacao in one 5Kg bag. The product could have been shipped in individual 1kg bags to preserve the quality of the product. Since I received the product in such a compromised state, I am very disappointed in the shipping practices of Giddy Yo.

    Smooth and Creamy

    Published by Unknown on 20th Nov 2020

    Great product to snack on its own for those watching their carb/sugar intake. A bit bitter at first but once left to melt in your mouth has that smooth cacao taste that satisfies those cravings and gets you off sugar chocolate! Have not tried it in baking yet.........

    amazing cacao

    Published by Dan Legault on 28th Sep 2019

    100% love this product as it makes the best chocolate in the world! Only thing I can say not ideal about it is that it feom rime to time is a bit gritty and needs further processing to smooth it out. Would give it 5 out of five otherwise!!

    Very Good

    Published by Unknown on 8th Oct 2018

    I go through a lot of cocoa paste making chocolates and truffles galore. In my opinion and experience/research Giddy yoyo cocoa paste is the best and indeed, is my favourite. I want to acknowledge how proud I am of Gidy Yoyo being a “small local” Canadian company where the owners and staff are such rare gems delivering excellent customer service including your Endearing “love notes” expressed on the delivery boxes. Those little notes have huge positive energy! Thank you.
