Does anyone know of any stores that would carry cacao nibs in Montgomery County?

    I've gotten them at Whole Foods, but Balducci's probably has them too.

      I have been looking for them in Howard County, too. They aren't even easy to find online.

        These are the ones I bought:

        I just noticed, too, that Wilderness Family Naturals has raw cacao nibs (from Peru or Ecuador), and you can get sample sizes if you just want a small amount:

        Surprisingly, you can find them at the The Vitamin Shoppe - 1803 Rockville Pike, Rockville. (301) 231-7900

          Just saw some last weekend at SiTea in Takoma Park. I'm not sure how the price compares, but they sell by weight.
          You could also try MOM's organic market in Rockville.

            Saw some yesterday at the Bethesda Co-op in Cabin John MD.
