My first tasting (scat, children- get away, mine!) - the consistency was great- not too dry and nothing so different from any other bar. This is meant as a compliment. For those of you who do not have food allergies, it is very often difficult to find products that not only taste good but also feel similar to non-allergenic foods. The cherry flavor coupled with a bit of a buttery taste was just like a square piece of pie. For more information about the ingredients, please click here.
Three words- nom, nom, nom. These are like an allergy-friendly candy bar. The chocolaty goodness was just unbelievable! (ok, my mouth is watering again.) My daughter and I snuck into the kitchen to try these secretly and what we also discovered is that when you eat them alone, they are really good but when you crumble them and put them on top of dairy free ice cream, watch out. You know all of those times you heard your child say they wished they could have those fancy toppings on their ice cream or that special shake with all of the extra goodies in it? This is the answer to that dilemma. I would send you some but these were the first to be gone in our house- I only got one and I was the sampler...talk about unfair. Ingredients can be seen here.
I do admit, it took me a bite or two to get hit with the flavor in these bars but when I did, whoa. Another chocolaty goodness with a slight hint of Sunbutter flavor. Personally, I found that the bars almost have a caramel-like flavor similar to a candy bar that I have had but cannot put my finger on. I was munching away and I had a few leftover so I decided to try to get back into my old custom of making something with them. Viola- a fast and easy muffin was born. I used Gluten Free Pantry Muffin & Scone mix as directed and crumbled bits of the Chocolate Sunbutter Decadence Bar into the batter as well as extra crumbles on top. Fast, easy and all gone! Sometimes, simple is better. Ingredients for the Chocolate Sunbutter bars can be seen here.
Let me set the scene for you- it was a grey, dreary day and all I really wanted was a good cup of tea and something to make me feel satisfied. Almost like when you were little and your grandmother would bake you special cookies? This is the feeling that I got when I tasted these. I considered compiling a recipe but honestly, these were perfect just with my cup of tea. Not too sweet but very similar to an old fashioned cookie of my childhood. My only regret is that I have plenty of tea left but no more bars. It's ok, I will just need a minute to regain my composure... perhaps, a sweet and pure soul will take pity on me and send me some more. Please find the ingredients here.
