St. John's Bread
These dried and hard carobs are also known as St. John's Bread because, according to tradition of some Christians, St. John the Baptist subsisted on them in the wilderness. Carob pods are considered to be a remarkable antidiarrheal. Carob is said to be high in fiber and rich in one class of tannins (polyphenols) that manifest strong antiviral and antiseptic properties.
There are approximately 18-20 in a pound.
***PLEASE BE CAREFUL OF THE HARD SEEDS INSIDE THE POD. THEY ARE NOT EDIBLE***

“AMAZING!!! First time I've ever had it, and I went ahead and bought 2 1lb. bags. So glad I took the chance. Money well-spent! Tons of energy and very filling snack. Highly recommend! ”
Mark, Farmington Hills, MI April 3, 2013
“Package arrived as promised in 2 days. Your humor on the box and the packages inside was unique and appreciated.
I haven't had St. John's bread since childhood (a long time ago) and I couldn't get the craving out of my mind. Yours is the only place I was able to find it. Had my first piece today and enjoyed my trip back to my youth.
I also got edamame. I think that could become something to which I could become addicted.”
Lilian, Vineyard Haven, MA April 1, 2013
“Well, it's true: nuts.com is one of the best, most reliable web-based businesses out there. My order arrived in record time (overnight, with standard shipping); the packaging is sensible, durable, charming, and funny; and the nuts, fruit, and snacks (all organic!) look delectable. I will definitely be ordering from nuts.com in the future--particularly for items which are nearly impossible to find elsewhere (organic--and unsweetened!--dried cherries, Italian carob pods, organic peanuts). Thanks, "Nuts" family!

“I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE CAROB PODS! they are delicious, healthy, have great fiber and are the PERFECT healthy dessert anytime of the day! I am addicted!”
Roslyn, Bethesda, MD January 22, 2013
“WOW! This is the best service ever. I ordered these Saturday, Jan 19 and was told they would be sent out on Monday, the 21st and arrive on Tuesday, the 22. I didn't believe it because Monday was a holiday - no mail delivery. BUT, they arrived Tuesday, by Fedex, as promised. Just terrific. And it's been years since I've had carob, so it's wonderful. I'm impressed!”
