    If, for whatever reason, you do need 15 kilos of chocolate chips, it is cheaper to go to Woolworths and buy seventy five packets of Cadbury Baking Chips for $159, a saving of $140.29.

        You say that like it's a bad thing. 😉

          Much of the country supports free trade agreements where the aim is drive labour costs down to slavery so impoverished foreigners getting paid is a bad thing.

            @Diji1: The fair trade part is fine, I don't care for the organic nonsense. It requires more land to grow, isn't in any way better for you compared to non-organic products, and the popular misconception that they don't use pesticides and so on is somewhat of a lie, because farmers can use them, they just have to use "natural" ones such as copper sulphate.

    so $20/kg. isn't that the price of lindt/greens/cadbury blocks when they are on sale?

      These are chocolate, not milk chocolate; these have cocoa as the first ingredient.

      Also, these are Peruvian, usually a different species of cocoa (criollo and or trinitario) with fruitier / spicier notes than the more common West African beans. Not to everyone's liking but…

      These also are not just fair trade but, not being of African providence, are much less likely to involve child slavery. Google "food empowerment project" for more info.

      $20/kg is a good deal for this.

        Bulk short-dated chocolate is unlikely to be a good deal.

        At best, flavour, aroma etc - the qualities that might make this chocolate great, will be diminished. That's why short dated foods are reduced to clear.

        It's a gamble more than a deal.

          Fair call. IME old chocolate, particularly those species above, loses something, a "depth of flavor" if you want a non-tech qualitative term, much of it actually captured in the texture / mouth-feel which deteriorates over time. But melting and re-tempering seems to bring some of it back. So probably not good for snacking direct, but may be good for use in cooking / chocolatiering.

      lindt has up to 90% cocoa, greens & cabury 85% i think. the one listed here doesn't even advertise how much cocoa is in it. and i'm guessing the blocks taste a hell of a lot better …

    Oh normally Amazon charge me full price for short dated stuff. Then refund me when I complain ;).

    Cashews, 281.27 / 11.34: $24.80 a KG. That's not really a deal considering the quantity you have to buy too?
