Hi, I am looking to buy some carob pods! They are delicious dried and eaten just like that! They taste like candy. I live in Illinois and have spend hours on the internet and no one knows where to buy them. They should be coming out in September but where do they sell them?

    Here's a link that may help your local grocer (if listed on this site) order them for you. It says they will be available in October.

      Hi,
      I use to live in Illinios and love carob pods. I now live in S. California and know of a tree near where I live and pick them. They are soooo good. If you want to email me I can mail some to you at your P.O. Box or address, just cover the postage. Someone one did this for me once. My email is: betolo57@yahoo.com Frank

        It may be too late now but I juast came on board.As I was perusing the web to find out what to do with the pods I bought in NJ,I ran accross this website that sells and sends them.If you don't know about it by now,it's www.funkyraw.com.
        I've started eating them,they're great.

          This is in reply to Carole622. They grow on our main street. there are pods all over the sidewalks right now. Do you roast them ? I tried this and they get softer and sweeter.
          If you need some and haven't gotten any from the other posters let me know.
          Anyone know of any way to use them other than dog treats and snacking please let me know.
