My husband and I drove by at 9am on a Sunday. Roger and his dog (Doga) were great and the chocolate nibs were equally delicious. The bags we bought are reasonably priced and made great gifts. Thanks, Roger.

On our way back from Herman's Cave and the Blue Hole National Park, we spotted this little roadside stall. We sampled some chocolate tea and purchased some cacao nibs and some roasted cacao beans - both delicious.
