Unless you need to adhere to a special diet (ex. gluten-free, diabetic, etc.) for medical reasons, you’re probably a little hesitant to try special diet foods. C’mon now. Be honest. I know I am. No matter how much the manufacturer tries to make special diet food taste like ‘normal’ food, sometimes there’s just no substitute.
Not so with Enjoy Life Foods—in particular their double chocolate crunch granola and semi-sweet chocolate mega chunks. I signed up to review these products because, hello, chocolate! But I’ll admit, I was a little wary about whether or not I’d like them. And then they arrived and voila! I was a believer.
Since 2001 Enjoy Life foods has continued to steadily grow in the food industry—their main selling point being that ALL of their products are free of eight top allergens: wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish and shellfish. And a lot of their products are also free of potatoes, sesame, sulfite and casein. Can’t go wrong if you need a special diet, but want something tasty to eat.
But let’s get back to the chocolate. The semi-sweet chocolate mega chunks blew me away because they taste like regular chocolate chips. And trust me, they are ideal for baking (Greg made chocolate chip pancakes) or by the handful (Zoey and I can’t get enough of them). Because we loved them so much, the bag is almost empty, but I’m anxious to buy more and try them in some chocolate chip cookies.
The double chocolate crunch granola is ideal for breakfast or (as Zoey and I have realized) snacking and are filled with Enjoy Life semi-sweet mini chips. We’re not talking a couple of chocolate chips thrown in the bag like a lot of granola manufacturers do. Oh no. Enjoy Life ensures there are enough chips that most bites are filled with chocolaty goodness. Can’t get much better than that.
Their product line goes much further than just granola and chocolate chips. They also have cookies, chewy bars, cereal and trail mix—so you can have a tasty treat while adhering to your special diet. The foods are gluten-free certified by the Gluten Free Certification Organization (GFCO), Kosher-certified by Chicago Rabbinical Council (cRc) and Halal-certified by Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America (IFANCA).
But maybe you’re asking yourself ‘hey, where can I get these great products?’ Enjoy Life foods are available in natural food stores and conventional grocery stores throughout the United States and Canada, as well as through over 15 online retailers.
I, in no way. received any type of compensation for this review.
