OCHO Organic Candy Bar Review

Oh, Candy Bars! I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before and I will mention it again. I am a candy junkie. I hide candy where I can. It’s like if it’s hidden then others don’t know how much I actually eat. Haha. Well until now I guess. I used to be a big gummy and chewy candy type of person. When I started looking into organic candy, I was seeing more chocolate than gummy candy, which I’m definitely okay with! So, I decided to give OCHO Candy Bars a try!

I was so stoked when I got my package from OCHO! They use no preservatives and no artificial additives. You get true organic ingredients, I love that! Reading their label, they don’t hide anything. You get exactly what you think you’re getting.

My all time favorite flavor when it comes to anything mixed with chocolate is definitely Peppermint!

 

The refreshing and cooling from the mint mixed the chocolate, you can’t beat that. OCHO’s peppermint is so smooth and good. It’s not gritty and doesn’t leave a bad after taste. They were my favorite to have after a meal. Even though it’s chocolate, it made me feel like I had better breath after I ate!

My husband’s favorite was Chocolate and Peanut Butter!

He may not have said that it was his favorite, but empty wrappers and missing peanut butter chocolate bars don’t lie. The peanut butter has that chunky peanut butter feel. It’s not gritty but almost has that texture, but I think this is from the fine peanut pieces. Either way, it doesn’t mess with the taste at all. It definitely reminds me of a healthier version of Reese’s cup! Yum Yum!

The Caramel is soo good!

Look at that caramel! It is so ooey and gooey and delicious! It just pours out of the chocolate. Oh my goodness, remember I am a sucker for anything chewy. Well, this is that! It’s buttery and smooth and the best thing to go with chocolate.

Lastly, I’m usually not a fan of Coconut.

However, something about this was different. The coconut was soft and sweet. It was finer and not overwhelming. I liked it so much, I ate more! That never happens, like ever. I hate coconut. Trust me, this is a winner.

I cannot say enough good about OCHO candy bars. If you’re looking for an organic alternative to chocolate or candy bars, OCHO is it!! The candy bars cost roughly $2 and I spent more on other candy bars that weren’t organic! Worth it!

Check out OCHO for yourself. You won’t be disappointed!

Wildtree Snickerdoodle Review

Ohhhh, it’s my favorite kind of cookie!! The Snickerdoodle. Something about sugar and cinnamon that I can’t get enough of! However, store bough snickerdoodles are full of who knows what and the calories per cookie…..eeekk I can’t even say it!

I make my own snickerdoodles usually, but let’s face it, I don’t always have the time! With two little girls, when they want the cookie that I promised them… then I better have it! That’s what happened the other day. Not thinking, I told my 3 year old… “Of course you can have a cookie!”  *Insert foot in mouth*   We didn’t have any made! Luckily, I had a box of Wildtree Snickerdoodles in my pantry that I could whip up quick!

I’d never made these ones before, but I knew it wouldn’t take long. I had bought these along with some other products that I will review later! I loved that the company has all organic mixes, spices and sauces! So, with these cookies, I only needed just a few ingredients and we were rockin.

 The ingredients were pretty straight forward! I used Organic Almond Milk and subbed out some Coconut Oil for the melted butter!

I mixed the cookie mix with the milk and coconut oil until it formed a dough.

 I know, it doesn’t look like a lot of dough, but it does make 12 cookies!  Next I used an Organic Coconut Sugar and Organic Cinnamon powder and mixed it together as the instructions directed. Coated the dough balls and placed the on a baking sheet.

 Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes and this is what you get!

 They were fast to whip up and bake! My 3 year old and I were able to play a game to pass the time till her beloved cookies were done! ha I’m not always a huge fan of some cookie mixes, because of the ingredients, but as an organic brand…. I was happy!

Check out the calories and fat! Only 5 grams of sugar! I love that and using almond milk and a coconut sugar really kept it low on sugar and calories!

Overall, I liked these. They were more like muffin tops than cookies but they were good! Had a nice texture and flavor. I think the only change I’d make for my other package to make would be to flatten the cookies a little more before baking. Maybe, that would help to look more like a cookie and make it more of a dense cookie compared to how light it was.

If you’d like to get some snickerdoodles or check out any other organic mixes, sauces or spices go to www.wildtree.com !

Enjoy!!
