Anyways, I knew the moment I saw these they were going to my husband. If you watch my unboxing video (link at the end of the post) you’ll notice he actually stole these and ran around the apartment, he’s such a goofball but I love him! After finally getting them back I tried some and I have to say, very pleased!

Ingredients (from the website) are: Glucose, Cane Sugar, Glycerine, Coconut Oil, Coffee Extract, Milk Powder, Natural Coffee Flavor, Salt, Caramel. CONTAINS: Milk. While they are “healthy” in that they don’t contain corn syrup or other weird sweeteners keep in mind that glucose syrup and glycerin probably aren’t the healthiest things so eat them sparingly.

Taste wise they are VERY strong, you could probably dissolve one of these and use it in cooking for brownies or something. If you love black coffee you’ll love these. We both give them 5/5.

Value wise, very surprising. If you go to their website (CLICK HERE) you’ll see that you have to buy 12 bags, each bag has 42 candies, 12 bags cost $23.88. Basically they are $2 a bag. Even to corn syrup filled candy these are super cheap, I did the math for you and each candy is 5¢! Big 5/5 for value.

Overall I give them 5/5. Shockingly (or not) my first 5/5 all around. I would totally buy these again if I found them locally. My husband is sad he ate them all.

Value: 5/5
Taste: 5/5
Overall: 5/5

If you guys have tried these let me know what you think! Thanks.

Anyways, I was excited to try this granola bar. I tend to be a big fan and after a quick scan of the ingredients which are: Ingredients: Rolled Oats, Almonds, Dried Cranberries, Sunflower Seeds, Golden Flax Meal, Arizona Honey, Palm Sugar, Butter Vanilla Extract, Sea Salt, Dark Chocolate. I was happy they seemed healthy, I was a bit put back by the cranberries since I’m not a fan but they are very small pieces so worst came to worst I’d just pick them out.

My initial thought was SWEET. Sickeningly sweet in fact. Looking on it now I can see why, they have sugar, and honey in them. The taste is not bad and texturally it tastes like a soft Quaker granola bar. If you can get past the sweetness, it’s not half bad. You really cannot taste the cranberries in them nor can you taste the almonds. In terms of taste I’m giving it a 3/5, if you toned the sugar value down some you’d bump that up to a 4/5.

Value wise, there isn’t much 2/5. I tried to take into account these are more natural type products and that they would cost more but at the time of filming my video you would get 3 6ounce bars for $15. Since then they have changed their website (CLICK HERE) and it’s 9 2ounce bars for $15. No different you just get smaller bars. Overall I’m giving them a 2/5.

Value: 2/5
Taste: 3/5
Overall: 2/5

Full disclosure: If you do use my link I will get 500 points for merchandise in the future. This is no gimmick, if you don’t like the box just cancel your subscription. It’s super easy. =) Anyways, I will admit when I first saw popcorn in my box I thought, “oh great a cheap filler”. I don’t buy popcorn from the store, I always pop it at home. If I do buy popcorn it’s the kettle corn fresh popped at the farmer’s market. Going into this I had bias obviously, I will admit.

Here are the ingredients for this product: Premium Popped Corn (Non-GMO), Evaporated Cane Sugar, Sunflower Oil (Non-GMO), Sea Salt, Natural Flavor (Contains Dairy), Soy Lecithin. Contains: Soy, Dairy

However, I was pleasantly surprised when I tasted this product and it was pretty good. It wouldn’t beat out the fresh stuff in a side by side taste test, no, but it was pretty good! You can totally see why love with food claims it shines and glistens making you want more. It’s very shiny in the package. My one complaint which seems common is, it’s very sweet. Moronic sounding since it’s kettle corn, but I think they could tone the sugar down a notch. In terms of kettle corn though I would give it a 5/5 for taste. Very good.

Value is where I had a hard time and since filming this video and actively looking at the prices of pre-popped popcorn I would change my rating if I could to probably 1/5! I saw a HUGE bag of popcorn at Trader Joe’s for $1.99. So maybe keep that in mind, the rating is 3/5 because of the video and the review was “in the moment” but a re-do would be 1/5.

Overall I’m giving it at 4/5. While this popcorn was pretty good, I probably wouldn’t actively purchase it. They do have other flavors I would consider trying, but I could not find this product at whole foods or a few other local stores. If you are looking to purchase this product you can click HERE - this is their company website, I don’t get compensation for this link, FYI.

Value: 3/5
Taste: 5/5
Overall: 4/5
