I recently did a package exchange with the lovely Agnes (http://agnesworldofveganpleasures.blogspot.com/) who sent me these amazing raw goodies:
Above are raw food energy bars, raw snacks (in flax, hazelnut and date flavours), dried banana, dried pineapple (my fave- and a real treat because I can never find it unsweetened!) and a coconut and orange juice. Everything is currently being enjoyed by me and my family!
Agnes also sent two adorable cards with the treats- they can be seen on either side of the picture above!
I was also really excited to receive a package from the lovely people at Clif! I have tried Clif builder bars in the past and have been anxious to try some of their other stuff ever since. However, the products are not sold in the UK so the only option is ordering them online, which I have been a little hesistant to do, having never tried them before! Generously, the company offered to send me a box of Luna goodies to try (info about them here: http://lunabar.com/).
My thoughts on what I have tried so far:
1. Luna Cookie- A nice texture but I wasn't quite sold on the minty flavour with the chocolate. am strange about other flavours with chocolate but I would definitely try this again because I think it would definitely grow on me!
2. Chai Tea- An unusual flavour and hard to describe! It was covered in white chocolate, which was nice and sweet but the bar itself had quite a strong cinnamon taste. I wasn't quite sure about it but after one bite I definitely started enjoying it! I think it was hard to tell whether I liked it at first because the flavour combination was unfamiliar to me.
3. Chocolate Peppermint stick- Another bar I was not so sure about because of the chocolate and mint combination but I definitely enjoyed the strong chocolate taste. It was quite rich but really hit the spot!
4. Chocolate raspberry- definitely my favourite flavour that I have tried so far. Chocolate with fruit is a flavour combination that I really like. The texture of the raspberries, which were nice and chewy, really made the bar satisfying to eat!
I have yet to try the Berry Almond flavour and the Luna Sunrise bar but I will definitely be munching them soon!
