**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. So tasty!

    Posted by Anne on 30th Jun 2020

    I use chunks of cacao paste to make my morning hot chocolate, and this one is the best I've tried so far. The flavour is rich and luxurious!

  2. Best raw Cacao

    Awesome Cacao I recommend it
    Thank you

  3. Perfect Cacao

    Posted by Unknown on 28th Aug 2019

    The nutrition facts along with other labelling, such as organic, vegan, gluten free, etc, and unprocessed Cacao indicates that this product is best for me.

    I purchased one package in store four month ago; since then I have regularly purchased minimum one package every month.

  4. Versatile and tasteful product :)

    I tried it like that. Just eat it. Try it, you'll see!
    Also for hot caco. Hot water, with or without some maple syrup, and drop a chunk of paste, let it melt, and enjoy!
    Was also popular in different versions, such as with cashew or sunflower seeds butter, or a little warm (not cooked!) and placed over a few drops of maple syrup and with a pinch of sea salt on it, or dipped in coconut mana, or in pieces on the top of a smoothie or others .... well, what can I say, all the versions were popular :) Because the main ingredient is just wonders!

    This is the BEST cacao paste I've ever had!! I think the secret (sshh), is the vanilla; making this cacao paste SMOOTH tasting! I live in the US (Albany, NY), and it is worth every penny, to order this from Canada (so glad you ship to the states!). I am addicted; send me more, more, more!
    PS Found out about Giddy Yo Yo via Leanne Vogel at Healthful Pursuit (Thank U Leanne

  8. No Sugar! Great if you're watching your weight or following a ketogenic diet

    Posted by Angela on 7th Jun 2017

    This produce is simply excellent, and a bag lasts me quite a while. I'm dipping it in honey if I want some sugar, and in nut butter if I don't want the sugar. It doest the trick for me, I get my theobroma and magnesium fix!

  9. amazing product!!#

    Posted by Tracy on 12th May 2017

    Tastes great with some cashew butter and cures my craving for chocolate.

  10. Cacao paste perfection

    Posted by Faith on 13th Mar 2016

    I am sensitive to molds and would have reactions to most chocolates. When researching mold free chocolates, I found Giddy Yo Yo. I ordered the paste, butter and powder. I could smell the wonderful chocolately scent befor I even opened the bags. I have made my own chocolates using all of the ingredients and it is heavenly! And the best part is I don't get the jittery, yucky side effects of consuming mycotoxins. Woohoo! Thanks Giddy Yo Yo! :)
