So many products in the Daily Goodie Box to try!
The first product I tried was the Gertrude Hawk Peanut Butter Meltaway Bar. This Peanut Butter bar is delicious! Every bite is smooth and packed full of peanut butter. But it also has just enough chocolate to give it that perfect balance of peanut butter and chocolate. It has a delicious sweetness that all chocolate lovers crave. I ended up putting mine in the refrigerator before devouring it. The best idea ever because it gave it that crunch I like. Otherwise, I’m sure that if I ate it without refrigeration, it would truly be a meltaway bar. The kind of meltaway bar that makes that chocolate melt in your mouth while you close your eyes and think happy thoughts as you travel to heaven. I am looking forward to my next Gertrude Hawk Peanut Butter Meltaway Bar because it is choco-licious! Get yours at gertrudehawkchocolates.com- peanut butter meltaway bar
My son tried the Pipcorn with sea salt. These mini popcorns are so cute and make the perfect little snack. My son was eyeing this Pipcorn from the first time I opened my Goodie Box. So when snack time came around, I let him have this as a snack. The popcorns are so cute and tiny. Hence the name, pipcorn. Each bag is only 81 calories and is made with Non-GMO popcorn, olive oil and sea salt. That’s it. Just those three ingredients. So you know it’s a good choice for a snack. It’s also gluten free, vegan and has no preservatives. It was also seen on Shark Tank. Wow! What a great product. I’m sold. You can find a bag of Pipcorn at pipsnacks.com- delicious mini popcorn
Next I tried a packet of Wild Foods Cocotropic Chocolate Nootropic Drink. I admit that this was the last product I tried because I was a bit skeptical. Not so much of what it offers, but how it would taste. Believe it or not, it was delicious. I tried it hot, so it tasted like hot cocoa. I added some honey for sweetness. However, you can also blend it with your protein shakes or ice blended coffee. You can also add a couple of tablespoons in you hot coffee or tea in the morning to benefit from the mental performance enhancing it provides. The Wild Cocotropic chocolate nootropic drink is a blend of reishi mushroom, raw maca powder, mucuna pruriens extract and wild turmeric. This blend of superherbs are natural cognitive enhancers that help with mood and concentration. Mucuna pruiens helps promote the brain chemical dopamine. The organic cocoa powder is antioxidant rich. Reishi mushrooms are immune boosters. Tumeric suppports healthy brain cells. Raw maca powder positively affects memory and mental performance. It is a non-GMO food, dairy free, gluten free and soy free. It retails for $1.50 per packet. It’s easy to prepare. Just put 2 heaping tablespoons in hot water, coffee or tea. Add sweetener if preferred such as honey. What a great way to start the day. Get your packet at wildfoods.co
The Savi Crisp Chocolate protein bar is delicious. This is a protein bar that is described on the package as a dessert protein bar. It is melted dark chocolate paired with the creamy taste of marshmallow in the crisp bar. I must say it is the perfect amount of sweetness. The dark chocolate pairs well with the marshmallow taste. I have to say it reminded me of a Rice Krispy bar. I packed it for work as a breakfast bar not realizing that it would be more of a dessert bar. Still, because it is not too overpowering in sweetness, it was perfect for breakfast. There are no artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors in the Savi Crisp Chocolate protein bar. Also it is a healthy snack. It contains 15 grams of protein, 7 grams of fiber, 5 grams of sugar, and it is gluten free. It retails for $14.99 for a box of 6. Try one for breakfast or a healthy quick dessert! Get yours at savant-naturals.com
