As well as its sweetness, carob also lacks natural bitterness, unlike other foodstuffs with a similar production process, such as coffee or chocolate.
A caramel note to the flavour and the ease with which it melts make Siesta Carob Drops a great choice for any application where chocolate would usually be used.

Frequently Asked Questions
How are Siesta Carob Drops made?
Produced from the Ceratoma Siliqua tree, Carob powder is made when the sweet pulp in the pod is dried, roasted and ground to a powder. The strength of the flavour relies on the strength and the length of the roasting; more roast, stronger carob flavour.
Carob powder is naturally processed to produce a variety of textures and styles of carob product. Siesta Carob Drops are one example, perfect for carob-drop cookies, carob brownies, melting for baking carob cakes or just as a treat on their own, straight from the bag.
