Whole Cocoa Pod
Do you want a beautiful item that's a conversation piece, keepsake, and a unique gift? Something fun, educational, and rare and hard-to-find but affordable and easliy portable? Our cocoa pods are all these things. If you're a store owner, you'll attract the curious, get and keep the conversation going, and keep customers in your store! For your home, it's a wonderful display piece for a buffet table or other decoration.
- Beautiful handcrafted item for your shop, store, or home
- Hard as wood and lasts forever
- Awesome and amazing gift for chocolate lovers
Whole pods are our most popular item. They are fully dried and last indefinitely. They do not come fresh, and the color is as shown in the picture. They are hard as wood and weigh anywhere from 125 to about 200 grams. They vary in length from approximately 6" to as large as 10". When shaken, you can often hear the seeds rattle inside.
If you receive a pod with what appears to be a slight white mold on it, please do not return it. It simply can be brushed with a bristle brush (not wire) or rough towel to be removed. Once the pod is unpacked and kept in a dry environment, this phenomena should disappear and not reoccur.
For decoration only, not for human consumption.

We purchased two of these for our school's Food Science Class. We left one whole, and we cracked one open to show our students the beans inside. They are large, and visually stimulating for the students; especially when we discuss how cocoa is processed.

I received my Cocoa Pod yesterday. I can't believe how quickly it got here. It is great! I can't wait to display it. Thank you very much!
Bang for my Buck!

I am a high school foods teacher and am teaching a unit on chocolate. Being able to show the kids an actual pod was awesome. The students were engaged in the discussion of chocolate production. Cool!
The Perfect Interpretive Tool
Posted by Laurel on 9th Feb 2016
I work as a freelance Interpretive Naturalist, teaching groups of all ages about nature, ecology and wildlife. Prior to this career, I spent 8 years working as a professional Pastry Chef. I currently offer a program called "The Nature of Chocolate", an adult minded lecture, (that combines my past career with my current passion for nature education), and looks at the history, ecology and manufacturing of chocolate. The Whole Cocoa Pod is the perfect compliment to the visual aids I use during my talk. Sure - a picture of a cacao tree with ripe pods hanging from its trunk and branches is a great teaching tool. But for program participants to actually hold a real pod in their hands? That experience means they aren't just learning facts, they are actually connecting to the source of chocolate production. Thank you for providing this educational resource.

My daughter needed a pod for her report in school. I'd never seen one in real life and it was very cool and worth the $.

I love my new cacao pod -- I use it as a rattle when I want to kick up a little energy in my studio.
Amazing Cocoa Pod Wows Students

It was a beautiful hands on example of what the actual pods look like. My students were simply stunned at the size and shape of the dried pod and it had cocoa beans still in it!
