This Weekend's Hiking Snack: CocoRoons {Review}

As a family, we have recently adapted what we eat.  Gary and I have tried to eliminate refined sugar, which in turn means the kids are taking in way less too.  Nya is on a gluten free and dairy free diet to help with her asthma and eczema.  When we were approached by Lloyd James (Natural Foods Sales & Marketing) to review some healthy vegan products, I was in!  

The first product we are reviewing is called  `Coco-Roons'.  The 5 flavours that we had to try out were; Brownie, Lemon Pie, Cacao Nib, Almond Strawberry and Vanilla Maple.  The ingredients? For Koen's favourite, the Almond Strawberry, they are: dried unsweetened coconut, almond flour, almond butter, strawberries, unfiltered maple syrup, cold-pressed coconut oil, vanilla extract and Himalayan crystal salt.

We decided to take three of the packages hiking with us.  It gave the boys some incentive to make it to the top of McKee Peak (Upper Sumas Mountain)!   My kids are generally good once we start hiking but new snacks are always helpful. 

We stopped halfway and enjoyed a couple each as they are the perfect size for a snack.  I appreciate that they are not crumbly or too sweet.  You have to really like the taste of coconut to like these as that is the primary ingredient.

My favourite?  The Brownie one. Runner up? Lemon Pie.

If you are looking for organic, paleo, gluten free and vegan snacks and aren't too concerned with cost (it's $7.99/bag), this is a good one!   

Gary really enjoyed the Vanilla Maple and Nya agreed with me that the Brownie was best!

As the package says, `Bet you can't eat just one'!

Wonderfully Raw, the producer of Coco-Roons, have several other products that we are going to be testing out this next week.  Included will be Snip Chips...chips made of Parsnips.  Cool huh?

I hope you had a great weekend!
