Obtained in a swap with Mel, thanks!

Despite the strong chocolate scent it was a surprisingly hay like taste. I enjoyed it for it’s light sweet flavor.

My husband and I spent 10 days in Peru, and practically lived off this stuff – most especially when we both fell ill. It has a grassy flavor, and I don’t really care for it, but it helped as we were traveling into higher and higher altitudes. My stomach was not happy with me at all!
