Food Find

Well, first, I guess I should ask if you like coconut. Coconut is so polarizing. Why is that? And if you don’t like it, why? Why so much hate?

I’ve posted before about my love of Hail Merry Raw & Vegan (AND DELICIOUS) macaroons. We sell a second product, Merry’s Miracle Meyer Lemon Tarts. Their siren song had never lured me in, not even at my weakest need for a sugar fix. I’m not a lemon bar or even lemon dessert person.

But you know what lure me in? Our yellow sales tags. I’m a sucker for most things on sale. This has its pros and cons. Clearly.

So, logically, as they are on sale this month I bought one (now 5).

H.O.L.Y M.O.T.H.E.R O.F G.O.D

they don’t suck.

The crust is almond meal, coconut oil, and coconut flakes. And the center, the creamy tart center. I almost don’t even want to know how it is done, because I don’t want to ruin the magic.

Their suggestive serving is 3, mine is one.

Enjoy

*Hey since I’m referencing my work, Whole Foods Market, let me remind you that these views are mine, not necessarily those of the company.

Usually, I’m not a big chip eater. I like salty, crisp discs much as the next gal, but generally I’m more interested in them as vehicles for a delicious dip. I’m not particularly loyal to any brand, until now.

What I do love, people, is popcorn, and Popcorn Indiana has found a way to press popcorn into chips. I give you Chip’ins.

Divine intervention? Perhaps.

What I also love about these chips is the sodium count isn’t terribly high, a calorie ratio of 1 part calories to two parts sodium- incase you are wondering why I care, most nutritionists recommend a 1 to 1 ratio calories to sodium. Have a look next time you are in the supermarket and let me know how many products you find with that ratio (it isn’t a lot, let me break it to you).

I can only recommend the Sea Salt flavor as I haven’t tried the others. Go forth and munch, people. Go forth and munch.
