**NEW SOURCING** We are super stoked to offer you our newly sourced organic Ecuadorian Cacao Paste!

Our cacao paste is made from the highly prized fine flavour Ecuadorian Arriba Nacional criollo cacao bean. Our paste is always certified organic, fermented, non-hybrid and now lightly-roasted to bring out the deep, powerful, chocolate flavour characterized by a blend of earthy nutty notes. 

The beans are hand-selected, fermented and dried to perfection. The skins are removed from the cacao bean prior to grinding then ground into a liquid, tempered, cooled into a solid form, and kibbled for ease of use. Our cacao is clean and pure, and does not go through a “Dutch” process nor alkalized in any way. Giddy Yo Cacao Paste is low temperature processed from start to finish to maximize quality and taste while maintaining nutritional integrity.

Our Ecuadorian partner harvests fully mature ripened pods from trees grown in mineral-rich volcanic soil. They work directly with farmers (aka direct trade) and 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 creating this amazing food are well taken care of, and it is also our goal to source clean, pure, nutritious cacao of the highest quality possible. We lab test each lot of raw materials to ensure the high standards our customers have come to expect are met or exceeded.

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.

Ingredients: Cacao paste (aka cacao liquor).

  1. Smooth and Creamy

    Posted 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.........

  2. best cacao ever!!!

    I love all your products! I recommend to all my friends and family. I really like
    The fact that it’s also ethically sourced and fair traded. Keep up the good work.

  3. amazing cacao

    Posted 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!!

  4. Very Good

    Posted 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.

  7. lGiddy Yoyo raw cacao paste is truely the best ever!

    Posted by Daemon Rowanchilde on 7th Dec 2017

    I have tried about 6 or 7 organic raw cacao products throughout my quest for the best Medicinal hot chocolate elixir and found that Giddy Yoyo's Organic Equadorian wild harvested raw cacao paste was the best for health and the best on the connoisseurial level as well as nothing tastes quite like it. Even my clients who have had it before can tell if I have used another brand! My delicious nutritious medicinal hot chocolate can only be this good with Giddy Yoyo!

    this product is excellent and other sources pale in comparison. Anyone who appreciates fine cacao paste and enjoys using chocolate in recipes....Giddy Yoyo is the best. I always have a few pounds in the pantry.

  10. Second to None

    Posted by Karen Goes Giddy on 10th Apr 2017

    I have researched and experimented with an array of 100% cacao paste and find Giddy Yoyo top notch and I am further partial to this product in light of the excellent service and respect to human rights and both at home and abroad. Dont change a thing...if it ain't broke dont fix it!!! Thank you!
