disclaimer: i was not asked to write this post on behalf of the company, but choose freely to promote them because i really enjoyed their products.
i started following the raw vegan goodies company Rawxies on Instagram a few months ago, after they found me and began commenting on some of my pics (thanks, guys!). they market themselves as “not quite a cookie, not quite a bar,” and are created for “healthy snacking on the go.” these raw treats have a great ingredient list and none of the bad stuff, annnnnd they come in the shape of hearts. i mean, who can pass that up?
i thought they were adorable and wanted to try them for a while, but i never made it into one of the stores in NYC that carries them. then, i lucked into winning an Instagram giveaway they offered last week, and a sweet little package of four different flavors was waiting for me the other day. excitttingggggg.
their packaging is adorable and includes one of my fave words,
i was sent all 4 flavors of treats: Mint Chocolate Chip, Mocha Almond, Banana Nut Bread, and Lemon Poppyseed. and that, my friends, is the order in which i expected to rank the flavors. mint chocolate chip has always been my fave ice cream/frozen yogurt, and i love that combo, so i assumed that would be a sure fave — however, these definitely surprised me. i’m not sure if it was the ingredients, or the texture, or exactly what it was, but i ended up liking them in this order:
Banana Nut Bread, Lemon Poppyseed, Mocha Almond, and Mint Chocolate Chip.
craziness!! who am i?!
i think something about the chocolate/mocha in these didn’t quite work for me as well as the more subtle flavors. all were good, in that “tastes healthy and i know it’s good for me but i still am actually enjoying eating this” sort of way, but i liked the cocoa-free options better.
overall, i really enjoyed these and would definitely buy them to snack on on the regular. i “dig” the whole raw vegan health trend, and while i’m neither a raw foodie or a vegan, i try to eat as health-conscious, plant-based, and gluten-free as possible, so these are right up my veggie-and-oats lined alley. and let’s be honest — i’ve admitted before that i’m a marketer’s dream client, and i just love those little hearts! 🙂 ❤
