Carob powder has a sweet nutty taste and is often used as a substitute for cacao or chocolate powder when less caffeine is preferred.
The Carob fruit is grown in tropical climates and has many similarities with cacao. It is also known as St John’s Bread and its origins can be traced back to the Mediterranean lands. It is a fruit that has an eatable pulp but seeds that are not edible. To get the edible copper colored powder, this sweet pulp is dried and ground.

The main difference is that carob powder has a nutty flavor that is not as sweet as that of other chocolate drinks.
