And I was quite eager to get into mine when I opened it and saw the contents.
This box contained:
- 4 Caveman Cookies
- 2 Bearded Brothers Bars
- 2 Bite-sized samples of other Bearded Brothers Bars
- 2 packages of Coco-Roons, Vanilla Maple and Lemon Pie
- 2 packages of Sophia’s Survival Food Jerky Chews, Mild and Original
And an information card describing each item and listing their retail values.
The first item I sampled was the Caveman Cookies.
It is a chewy and somewhat sticky cookie, just under 2 inches in diameter, made from almond meal, honey, raisins, walnuts and some tasty spices. It is very similar to, but much sweeter, than one I make myself and I did like the chewy texture and spicy flavors. If you like oatmeal raisin cookies, you would like this one. I really like that they are individually packaged for convenience, portability, freshness, and portion control. The Captain says ‘thumbs up’, too.
The full sized Bearded Brothers Bars are 2 oz. so I cut one in half and shared it with The Captain, to sample and enjoy with tea one afternoon. The flavor … Radical Raspberry Lemon, and it was delicious.
It is made from organic figs, dates, sun butter, hemp seeds, raspberries, chia seeds, lemon extract, and sea salt. Of course it’s delicious! And I like the soft, chewy texture too. Very much like a … dare I say it…. LARABAR. And very much like one you would make at home with similar ingredients.
We also really liked the bite-size samples…those flavors were Colossal Coconut Mango, and Bodalicious Blueberry Vanilla.
Next up… Wonderfully Raw Mini Coco-Roons. I am a big fan of coconut macaroons and was really wondering about these little guys. Lemon is one of The Captain’s favorite flavors so we opted to sample them first.
The package weighs 2 oz. and there are 9 pieces inside. The suggested serving size is 3 pieces… which doesn’t seem like very much. But if you eat them slowly and savor each bite, 3 are quite enough. They are so flavorful and packed with healthy coconut, almond meal, coconut oil and natural flavorings… nutrient dense ingredients that are filling and satisfying.
I have to admit I am saving the Vanilla Maple Mini Coco-Roons for a special occasion. And I just may eat them all myself!
It took us a while to get around to trying the Jerky Chews. I haven’t eaten much jerky and was not sure I really would like them. These are from Sophia’s Survival Foods and came in two flavors… Mild and Original.
So far we have only sampled the Mild.
All in all, I was really pleased with the selection of snacks in this Cave Cravings box.
