New Favorite Treat

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

Someone in the organic co-op I participate in was splitting a case of frozen bars I'd never heard of.  It was high summer and frozen chocolate goodness sounded like a nice idea, so I went in for a couple boxes.

It was one of the best impulse buys EVER.

Luna & Larry's Organic Coconut Bliss is my new go-to sweet treat. I get the dark chocolate 'frozen dessert bars.'

Which is to say, I get the ones that taste like a fudgesicle sans the guilt.

They're soy, dairy and gluten free. And vegan. Made from organic coconut milk and fair trade cocoa. Very reasonable calorie count.  The coconut flavor is subtle and pleasant - which is great, because I was worried Bear wouldn't go for an unfamiliar taste.

I am in no way getting compensated for talking about these.  (But if anyone over at Luna & Larry's wants to send me some stuff I'm not gonna say no!)  It was just such a pleasant surprise to find them so incredibly good - and acceptable in so many restricted diets! - that I couldn't help wanting to share my find.  Pretty much every mom I've met from Bear's OT group struggles with dietary restrictions for their kids on top of the SPD.

And if you don't believe me, just look at this face...
