As you can see, I was sent one box each of their Baked Chewy Bars- Cocoa Loco, Caramel Apple, Mixed Berry and SunButter Crunch.
Now, I have noticed something in the past few years from doing their product reviews and I wonder, do they put something into the ingredients to make me feel the need to come up with different ways to use their products? I mean, first I started out with Mega Chunks and granola items (read here), then it moved onto the awesome and addictive Crunchy Cookies (here), followed by No Nuts Seed & Fruit mixes (here too), the original Chewy Bars (and, here), moving onto Plentils (yup, here) and the ever so yummy Decadent Bars (here, here). I am seeing a pattern here, aren't you? But it's a wonderful pattern because this is why I do what I do- we need to learn to think outside of the box and utilize the items that we have available. I am just happy that Enjoy Life Foods items inspire me to keep on thinking!
So then what did I do this time around? Well, I pulled my apron over my head and got to work. For the Cocoa Loco bars, I decided to make an "ice cream" cake. You have to remember all of those Fudgy The Whale commercials with the chocolate crumbles in them? My son always wanted one so I made him one (sort of).

As always, I want to thank Enjoy Life Foods for including me in their product taste-testing. I love doing it and I am happy to help spread the word about such a great company. After all, aren't we all supposed to enjoy life?
