This product is better than its name! Or it's photo! The 'Caramel Apple' flavor and the picture of caramels on the front insinuate a sickeningly sweet candy-like dessert and it's not that at all. It has a delicious full bodied apple flavor with just a hint of the caramel. Great idea, great recipe - change the picture. One idea to try, besides just squeezing it - use it as a topping for pancakes. 20 grams of sugars, but they're all naturally occurring from the fruit.

I really like chickpeas and I really like the fact that we have more different kinds of healthier snacks like these on the supermarket shelves. These are made with canola oil, a variety of spices and sugar and the crunch is perfect. This is a medium hot-ness and frankly I taste more pepper than I do heat. One ounce, or about one sixth of this bag is just 120 calories and counts 6 grams of protein and 4 grams of fat. Great snack for kids and adults. These chickpeas and falafel flavor work great together.

I really like the coconut taste! What's slightly disappointing, probably because the coconut taste is so good, is that I really don't taste the Greek yogurt at all, but that's a small price to pay for this delicious 80 calorie, 6 grams of protein bar. Made without any artificial sweeteners this is very satisfying. They say it's the first ever frozen Greek yogurt bar - and I doubt if it will be the last.

Once I got past the too cute 'veganic' phrase I actually tasted one of the best breads ever. Made from sprouted khorasan wheat this bread is hearty, flavorful and delicious and uses whole raisins as a sweetener instead of sugar or high fructose corn syrup. This could easily be your every day bread which delivers 5 grams of protein in every slice. I love putting the QR code on the front of the package to show the source of each ingredient. And by the way, 'veganic' refers to crops that are plowed back into the soil to restore and build nutrients and going beyond organic.

This is a very cool idea. Now before you crinkle up your nose, this sampler has 6 different blends - some with black tea and some with green tea, and they're all vegetable based. Spinach Chive, Beet Cabbage, Fennel Spice, Tomato Mint, Carrot Curry and Broccoli Cilantro. My favorites are actually the Tomato Mint and the Spinach Chive but they're all delicious and frankly this opens up a whole new category of tea. I could see drinking this with a meal, or by itself. Let your taste buds be adventurous and go out and buy this sampler.
