Hello ladies and gents,
I am back!
I had one heck of a rollercoaster month. From where I am sitting right now, it feels as if the month flew by. However, looking back, it was really long, painful and blissful at the same time.
In the duration of my break, I was able to get in-touch with myself again. I was able to enjoy my own company and re-asses who I am and who I’d like to be, completely.
With that, I wanted to share a few wisdom I gained/re-gained for myself during this very trying season:
Anywhooo, today, I am reviewing the Cacaonut spice from OmegaSeedSpice!
I would like to thank Sarah James for reaching out to me and giving me this opportunity. It’s nice to finally feel like a professional blogger and have products sent to your home 🙂
This is my first ever product review so please bare with me and do comment any questions/suggestions you may have in order for me to do a better job next time 🙂
To start off, I would like to give a little background info on the company.

I was very excited when Sarah told me I could pick a spice to try. I went through their list and read the description of each. I wanted to try all of them! However, the cacaonut really tugged on my heart. Among the spices, this one stood out as it’s something you use for desserts and breakfast!
MY REVIEW: Omega Seed Spice Cacaonut
I like the simplicity of the label they used. Not too flashy yet provides all the details you need.It did come, however, with a very thin orange masking tape to secure the top. It was the only thing that threw me off, mostly because I’m used to seeing the plastic around the cap saying “sealed for freshness.”
I expected it to taste chocolate-y because of the cacao but it tasted more nutty. This did not surprise me, however, as the ingredients depicted the nuts and seeds in them. I love how it tasted true-to-life. I could taste almost each of the ingredients in it.
I tried the cacaonut on several dishes: sprinkled on top of my breakfast oats, on top of my purple yam and mango ice cream, as well as on my protein pancakes.
In my opinion, the flavor is pretty subtle for a seasoning. It doesn’t add much taste to it unless used in larger quantities. If you are looking for something with a chocolate flavor to sprinkle on top, this isn’t the one. A hint of chocolate or sweetness to it would have been nice. I do commend them, however, for their great ingredients. I can tell both by sight and taste that what they used were great quality.
Though the flavor for this cacaonut spice mix could use some modifications, I greatly enjoyed knowing I am sprinkling more protein, fiber, vitamins, and omegas on my food.
Having said that, this review did not go as I expected but I will not completely close myself from trying out their other flavors. In all truth, it actually made me interested in trying out the other ones especially those used in poultry or meat. I can only imagine the rich spices being rubbed on some nice chicken breasts–yum! Not to mention, the reviews they have on Amazon are fantastic.
Please send me feedback on how I did with my first ever product review 🙂 Also, which omega seed spice seasoning would you like to try? Share with me in the comments below!
