I am allergic to chocolate, and I still enjoy the chocolate taste from carob cookies, brownies and cake!

If you are looking for some carob candies- such as carob peanut butter cups, almond butter cups or carob coated rice cakes in 5 flavors- try the website- simplefoodsinc.com- they have quite a selection, plus holiday candies- christmas, easter.

These carob goodies look scrumptious! Can I buy carob powder and carob chips, both sweetened/unsweetened at Whole Foods Markets?

@CHERYL - Since our products vary between locations, I would suggest reaching our to your local store to see what they have in stock for carob options. If you are not near a store location and would like the items shipped, you can call our Concierge desk in Austin at 512-542-2243 for assistance.

Love carob chips, but do they have cholesterol and if so, how much? Thanks!

@KAREN - I took a look at a vendor's nutrition facts for carob powder (http://www.bobsredmill.com/toasted-carob-powder.html) and it did not state that it contained any cholesterol. The recipes we link to above will have the nutritional info at the bottom of the recipe, just keep in mind that the cholesterol would take in to consideration all of the ingredients in the recipe and not just the carob. Hope this helps!

Do you sell carob malted milk balls, or carob covered peanuts or raisens or protein bars...

@CHERI - Our products vary between store locations so make sure to check with your local store to see what they have in stock. There might be a couple options in the Bulk department!

Is carob yeast free?

@LINDA - Carob powder is ground up pods from the carob tree and after investigating it did not appear that the powder itself contains yeast, but i could possibly differ between brands. If you plan on making something with the powder then it might depend if the entire recipe contained yeast, based upon the other ingredients.

Is Carob chocolate? I make my dog healthy treats, one of the recipes call for carob . I know dogs cannot eat chocolate. My puppy is 6 pounds. Thanks for your answer. Plus, I am allergic to chocolate.

@PHYLLIS - I checked with Alana and she said that carob and chocolate are two very different things. Carob does not contain caffeine like chocolate and it is safe for dogs. You are fine to give your dog a treat made with carob; it does not contain the same chemicals that the chocolate does, so it’s good! Hope that helps!

I am interested in buying 10 pounds of carob and 5 pounds of yoghurt chips. Can this be shipped to Mexico?

@KATHY - While you would be able to special order in these quantities from your local store, we do not offer international shipping at this time.

I've tried carob and I'm a fan! Based off of a popular recipe, (Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, which can be found under the oatmeal lid) I've modified it into a healthy snack that vanishes all the same! The ingredients are as follows: 2 bananas (pureed); 1-1/2 c almond flour; 1 c carob chips; 1 c firmly pack brown sugar; 2 eggs; 1 tsp vanilla; 1 tsp baking soda; 1 tsp cinnamon; 3 c oats; Just follow the recipe as normal! Making these into bars turned out better than cookies.

I thought chocolate actually contained theobromine not caffeine

I enjoyed reading your comments about carob especially it being low in fat and high in fiber--both attributes recommended for those who wish to lower their blood pressure. God bless you.

I just bought my first bag of carob chips and found your website. You say there is less fat and more sugar in them than chocolate chips and I should adjust the recipes as you cited. But you also state that I can just drop some carob chips into bars, cookies, cakes and muffins, then in parentheses you talk about unsweetened carob chips. Do you mean that I can drop UNSWEETENED carob chips in bars, cookies, cakes and muffins? I am totally new at this and need to have every little thing spelled out. Thanks!!

I have a chocolate allergy, yes that is a real thing, and I have been told that carob is something I should look into. I am glad to see that Whole Foods carries it. Can't wait to pick up some!

Normal carob selections in stores are chips, carob almonds, peanuts and raisins. Whole Foods should look into carrying carob covered rice cakes and carob squares, as well as carob cups( 3 flavors), made by Simple Foods Inc., located in Tonawanda,NY. They carry both bulk and grocery packaged selections. I;m sure carob consumers would love a broader selections of carob treats, especially for children.

I have many unsuccessful attempts melting carob chips. The chips gets lumpy and made a great mess. Can someone advise how to do it properly, in such consistency that I could dip cookies in carob?
