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***

Grew up eating Carob tree nuts. When I found out you guys are selling it... wan on 9th heaven :-)Lejla, Homosassa, FL
So if you are unfamiliar with this product, be aware! You either will love it or hate it. I grew up eating these pods and love them! There are health benefits for sure, but they also are just fun to snack on. They do have hard seeds (as they are pods) so you take a bite of the pod, and you need to discard the seed then carry on eating until you come to the next seed. Kind of like eating watermelon with seeds. St. John's Bread is Carob... in the natural form before they make powder with it. So it has a smell that is, well, a bit strange, but if you like crunchy, and fiber, you might really like this snack!Deborah, Bethlehem, PA
