The carob nibs mixed with raisins for a delicious and healthy treat that reflect their Biblical origins. Grapes are mentioned more often than any other fruits and used for multiple purposes, including as raisins. 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. Contains 4 ounces in a recyclable plastic bag.
