Yeah, I’m just late writing about it! I’m behind writing about EVERYTHING … but I hope to get caught up eventually.
April’s Goodies Box has all been devoured by now, with the exception of the Raspberry Acai Celsius beverage. And since I’ve already eaten nearly all the April box, rather than writing individual reviews on each of these, I’ll just tell you my thoughts briefly on each of the products here.
The first product I tore into was the Sea Salt MultiGrain Sweet Potato Chips from Green Giant. These are pretty darned tasty. I loved the multi-grain aspect of these … they ended up tasting a lot like “Sun Chips” but with a sweet potato taste that made them better than most other multi-grain chips. These are something I will definitely keep my eye out for when grocery shopping!
Next up was the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Zone Perfect Nutrition Bar. I love cookie dough, and the consistency of this nutrition bar … before biting in to it … was very much like cookie dough, so I had high hopes for this. But, unfortunately, after I bit into the bar and started chewing … the texture became very “diet food” like. It tasted alright, but it wasn’t something that inspired me to want to buy another bar. It wasn’t what I’d call tasty … it was acceptable, but the texture made it less than enjoyable to eat.
Then I tasted the Apricot Almond Chai True Bar. This is seriously yummy! The spice in this is very distinct and I like that. Lots of cardamom, ginger and cinnamon! The cardamom is especially nice here, it has a slight citrus-y tone that compliments the apricot very well. Lots of crunch to this bar, and a whole lot of flavor. The apricot comes through nicely. The texture is crunchy and I like that it didn’t feel overly sticky to the fingers. This will be something that I’ll want again and again – definitely one of the very best energy/health bars I’ve ever tasted.
Angie’s Sweet & Salty Popcorn is an entirely different story all together. I really enjoyed this tasty snack. The popcorn is light and crispy, the sweet coating on the kernels isn’t a heavy one – it’s lightly sweet, but, there is enough of an almost-caramel-y taste there that makes me think of a salted caramel without being too cloying. It’s a nice alternative to the overly sweet snack.
The last product that I’ve tried from this box are the Olomomo Chai Bliss Almonds. I LOVE THESE … and it’s not just because they’re chai-ishly flavored. They are delicious and crunchy and sweet and spicy and just about everything I want from a snack (except possibly, they’re not chocolate. What can I say, at the end of the day, I’m still a chocoholic!) I could snack on these every day … and my only real complaint about this “goodie” from my Goodie Box is that the package was so small, and it was just a handful of Chai Bliss goodness. This is something I WILL hunt down and get more of!
Overall, I really enjoyed my April Box, and as I said, some products were more memorable than others. I haven’t yet tried the Celsius drink, but, when I do, I’ll post a review of it. Until then … maybe I’ll get May’s Goodie Box article posted! ha!
