Thanks Wicked Raw Foods – What I Won!

Last week I learned through Twitter that I was one of the winners of the Wicked Raw Foods giveaway to celebrate their grand opening. Yay me!

I occasionally tweet with Andrea and she’s always has a great spirit. We tweeted about the start of her and her husband’s, Jason, new business and she promised to send me samples when they were officially up and running. When I won the giveaway, she not only sent me the prize but also other samples to try. How very nice of her!

I texted my husband this afternoon to be sure he didn’t forget to stop by the mailbox as I knew my treats were waiting. I was so happy to come home and find that indeed the package had arrived safe & sound. Who doesn’t love receiving mail with goodies waiting?!

Jason and Andrea started their business this October and they’re currently in the middle of a 30-day raw adventure. Their products are made from certified organic ingredients and 100% raw vegan. Here are more reasons to love Wicked Raw Foods…

All macaroons come three to a pack but I dug into the samples pretty quickly which is why there are only two in the pics below. Hey! They’re my treats 🙂

I heart citrus flavored anything so I started with the Lemon Macaroons.

I was expecting a hard texture for some reason so I was pleasantly surprised at my first bite that they were a soft, moist treat. This was true of all of the macaroons. The lemon flavor was mild for me but I like a strong citrus profile.

The chocolate macaroons were yum with just the right about of cacao.

The Vanilla Chai Macaroons tasted just as divine as their aroma. As soon as I opened the package, I caught the scent of chai and I love chai! These treats did not disappoint.

But wait! There’s more!

Mmmm, granola!

The first offering I tried was the Classic Granola which was delish and now I have the urge to make almond mylk so I can enjoy a big bowl of this stuff with fresh fruit 🙂 It’s perfect for a meal or snacking on the go.

They also sent a sample of their Orange Cranberry Granola. This item was my favorite of what I received. After I tasted it, I was loathe to share it with my husband. I did because it’s the right thing to do but I wasn’t an eager participant.

I could have eaten the whole pack but I saved a few morsels for the morning to have with bananas. I can hardly wait!

Thanks to Andrea and Jason for hosting the giveaway and their generosity with the additional samples. Whether you’re raw vegan or not, these treats are a nutritious alternative to traditional macaroons and granola AND just as tasty. Be sure to check them out and if you do, come back and tell me what you think. Or better yet, leave me a note on my FB page.

I will be purchasing from them. . . especially the Orange Cranberry Granola. . .mmmm!
