The majestic evergreen carob tree can grow to 50 feet tall and live for 100 years. It is draped with long, pleasant tasting pods – the outer shell, not the hard inner seeds, are edible. Rich in vitamins and minerals, the carob was eaten by the ancient peoples and fed to their livestock. Many believe carob is “St. John’s Bread” – the food St. John the Baptist ate in the desert. These modern day chips are made with carob, reflecting the ancient flavor. People enjoy the carob chips as they taste like chocolate without the chocolate’s caffeine-like substance: theobromine. Comes in a 4 ounce, recyclable plastic bag.
“And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.” Luke 15:16
