Where do you find them in a big city?

Whole Foods or any natural foods market usually carries cacao nibs or powder. I haven't seen the whole beans anywhere. That you might need to search for online. If Blasting, I prefer the nibs :)
I understand that nibs are processed with nuts and since one of my grandchildren are allergic to nuts and runs around my house, I have to keep track of the foods just to be on the safe side.

Depending on where you purchase your nibs, they may be processed in a facility that also processes nuts, always good to be on the safe side with a nut allergy !
I live in a smaller town, were we do not have Whole Foods etc. SO I get mine Amazon.
Check out www.nuts.com for cacao powder and nibs.
