Superfood Snacks review

I'm on the hunt for healthier living. My baby girl is 8 weeks old and I'm already back to my pre-pregnancy weight. So now I'm focusing on getting myself and my family into eating healthier foods. My boys are always snacking here and there. But they always look for the junk food first.
I found this company called Superfood Snacks online. They make snacks that are made from raw ingredients so they are better for you. As a bonus, they are also packaged in biodegradable packs so you don't have to worry about filling the landfill with packaging that's toxic to the earth.
I was given two flavors to sample: Brazilian Chocolate Ecstasy and Green Chocolate Dream.

The Brazilian Chocolate Ecstasy has a strong coconut smell and taste to it. Normally I'm not a fan of coconut because I don't like the texture but with this, there's a balance with the fruits and nuts that make it rather tasty. The fruit taste is also strong though. Not too sweet but also not bitter like dark chocolate tends to be. It's chewy and thick which gives it the filling ability.
My oldest son and husband tasted a little of this one and both ran off promptly looking for a trash can... My younger son, however, wanted seconds. This tells me that you have to have open taste buds and a love for different foods to truly appreciate the unique flavors.
The other flavor I tried was the Green Chocolate Dream. I have to be honest, this one didn't thrill me as much. But it was still good. I had a bit of an after-taste that I can't quite describe that stuck around in the back of my throat. The texture on this one was just as thick and chewy as the other flavor.
I even shared these with my mom and siblings. I again got a mixed reaction, but those who enjoyed them said the Brazilian Chocolate Ecstasy was the better flavor.
So what do I think overall? Not too bad. It makes a great on-the-go snack. Fills you up, has a pretty good taste and biodegradable packaging. Win win in my opinion.
Each pack comes with 6 pieces that makes up three servings. They have easy-to-read ingredients that you know aren't man-made such as Brazil nuts, raw cacao, Chia seeds, mango, coconut, vanilla, Goji berries and so many more "superfoods". Superfood Snacks are big on researching ancient cultures to see what was and still is eaten around the world where people were and mostly still are in excellent health. Some other things about them I like:
  • Organic and gluten-free
  • High in antioxidants
  • Boosts your energy and vitality
  • LOTS of fiber - great for moms like me who are nursing
  • Plenty of other things we need but probably aren't getting enough of like magnesium, calcium, protein, iron - you get the idea
There are no wheat, dairy, rice, soy, corn, fillers or refined sugars in these snacks either.
Definitely check them out! They recommend you try it over a weeks time to truly see a difference.
