I thought I would start off with 3 of them...first with this one...Bites of Bliss - Carob Almond Butter Bites! I have reviewed the other products from Bites Of Bliss and I have LOVED everything I have tried! One of the main reasons being that their products are WYSIWYG and many of you know that stands for What You See Is What You Get. I think that should pertain to the foods we eat, too! Meaning...when you look at it...you can see and identify most if not all of the ingredients. Speaking of ingredients here is what you can expect from this gem of a product from Bites of Bliss...Organic raw dates, organic raw walnuts, organic raw almond butter, organic raw hemp seeds, organic raw carob powder, organic coconut oil, organic vanilla extract.
ORGANIC � RAW � VEGAN � GLUTEN FREE � DAIRY FREE � SOY FREE � NO ADDED SUGARS
As for my personal findings on this product I found it to be quite chocolatey tasting from the Carob, of course! It was also nutty. The vanilla contributed to the sweetness and a bit of creaminess while nibbling on this circle-shaped treat. It has a gentle crispy crunch to it, too! Not saying that it would be hard for someone 'watching their teeth' like my mother, for example. If you only eat softer foods you wouldn't have a problem consuming this item! The gentle crispy crunch is from the nuts and seeds. The walnuts are easy to chew and are a good-size...they certainly didn't skimp on them! The sweetness also seems to come from the Carob as well as the dates. This is TOTALLY YUM and leaves no unpleasant aftertaste.
Another healthy snack that disappeared from my stash a while back were these little "chews" and they were FAB.
Sunridge Farms Almond Butter & Cranberry Power Chews! YUMMO! This isn't the bag that I received it was one I saw online so I think they had a repackaging plan going on when I received them but I didn't mind at all! It's what's on the inside that counts.
The gentle Almond Butter Flavor really shined here! It has a slight tartness to it which I REALLY liked - and - you guess it - the tarty flavor is from those little cranberries! These are not vegan because they contain honey so if you are "Apia" or "Apian" Vegan this might fit into that category a bit better by definition, I suppose. These are chewy, sweet, nutty, fruity, crispy, with a hint of saltiness to them. They leave you with a creamy/sweet after taste which is very pleasant. These pack a powerful punch, too! There is no need to sit there and eat the whole bag! 2 or 3 will do you just fine!
And for my 3rd and final Snack Review today...this one might surprise you...but they are Banana Walnut Bites from New Earth. WHY might this surprise you? Well...I HATE bananas!!!! Seriously can't stand them. But I do know how good they are for you and I WANT to like them, I do! It took me a day or two to appreciate the flavor of these - ONLY because they TOTALLY tasted like Banana! But...After a day or two I found myself craving them, really! Which was very surprising yet pleasing to me! YAY! These are Raw and Vegan and a wonderful snack! They use Activated Walnuts, here. They are sweet and crunchy. Because of the flavor combo, here, they DO taste like Banana Nut Bread but in a flavored Walnut! It's GENIUS, really!
The next time you are looking for some different snacks to try - look for these little guys! They are VERY impressive!
