Granola - Coconut (Grain-free, gluten-free with neither added sugar nor sweeteners) Ingredients: Sprouted almonds, coconut, dates, pecans, sesame, flaxseed, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and acerola cherry. Organic, grain-free, gluten-free granola, sweetened solely with whole organic dates (not keto-friendly).  No added sugar, no sweeteners.  This Granola has a sweetness to it and is tasty and I am not a fan of coconut. But the coconut flavor is not overpowering.  I enjoyed the mix of this snack. My son said this granola in milk is delicious so this would make a great cereal type snack. 

Cocoa-Date Truffles - Coconut -- Ingredients: Raw organic dates, Raw organic unsweetened shredded coconut, Raw organic cocoa paste, That's it! High-quality ingredients. A good source of dietary fiber, Omega 3, and plant-based protein. 


 High-quality ingredients. One package contains about 20 pieces that are 2/3" or less in diameter. Certified organic and kosher (some certifications are under our corporate name, Primeraw Foods). Vegan, raw, prebiotic, gluten-free, no added sugar, no sweeteners, no preservatives. (Sweetened with dates, these truffles are not keto-friendly). This is a raw product. All the fiber, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, flavonoids, and other micronutrients are wholly intact and bioavailable. 

 Enjoy frozen or thawed. Best within a week of opening at room temp, within a month refrigerated, and within a year frozen. 2/3 of the weight of this product evaporates during dehydration. The remaining 1/3 is rich in flavor and nutritionally dense. With so much weight loss, our costs are high, but the product is superb. 

These SMELL amazing but i am not a fan of dates or coconut so I knew this was not me. These were not a hit with anyone in my family. My husband loves dates but is not a fan of dark chocolate. He actually didn't care for the taste of this chocolate at all.  My son and daughter really had nothing to say but they were chewy.  The consensus was it taste fake and left an aftertaste 

 Chips - Tomato-Onion - Natural, Dehydrated, Kosher, Organic, Keto-Friendly Chips --  
Ingredients: Tomatoes, onions, flaxseed, nutritional yeast, extra-virgin olive oil, salt, smoked paprika, acerola cherry. Certified organic and kosher. A good source of fiber and Omega 3. 0g refined carbs.  My fourteen-year-old daughter liked these. That is a compliment because she didn't' even want to taste the rest because she is picky. She said they tasted a lot like ketchup. My youngest would eat ketchup out of the bottle so needless to say, she enjoyed these.  My middle daughter said they tasted like onion rings. My son noticed that they are extremely crisp. They will definitely satisfy your craving for chips and there is a distinct difference in the crunchiness.  

 PlantRaw's mission  -" to create Nutritionally-Dense, Superb Snacks I craft vegan, gluten-free, grain-free, and keto snacks that are as delectable as they are wholesome and nutritious. I set up my own production facility and spared no effort in sourcing the very best ingredients so my customers may enjoy peerless treats. All my processes revolve around preserving the nutritional value of my products. I dehydrate my crackers and chips instead of baking them, to preserve as much of their nutrient content as possible. I soak my almonds to deactivate the phytates and other anti-nutrients that naturally occur in them. 

This process, also known as "sprouting," enhances mineral absorption so the nutrients in my products are as bio-available as possible. I don't heat my cocoa-date truffles or my Ice Crage™. Since they are not denatured, you can benefit from the flavonoids, antioxidants, and other micronutrients that naturally occur in raw, unsweetened cocoa paste. My non-keto products are sweetened with whole organic dates, the fiber of which slows down carb absorption, buffering any potential glucose spike. Does that mean that the glycemic loads of my non-keto products are universally permissible? 
Well, if you allow yourself dates, pineapple, mangos, and blueberries then you can enjoy my non-keto products."

I LOVE that these are amazing ingredients. I can feel good about letting my kids snack on these. I would recommend trying them all.  With eight of us I have a bunch of different opinions.
