Why I bought it: Despite being burned a few times, the search for good raw and vegan Snacktion continues. Besides, super cookies rule the world!
Tasting notes: These are pretty addictive, mastering the elusive arts of texture and crunch. Free of nuts, wheat and gluten, they also thankfully taste more like chocolate than dates. That's a balance that can typically be reversed with vegan sweets; sometimes they rely too heavily on the dates.
Would I buy it again? Yes, and will also try some of the other sweet and savory flavors.
What other blogs/sites thought of it: Another tasty product from a local, family-owned company appears to fly below the Internet radar until now.
