Enjoy Life Foods have long been friends of mine and I recently received two new products to sample: their Double Chocolate Crunch Granola and Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chunks. Now, I am a huge granola person – throw in some chocolate and that bowl doesn’t stand a chance. As I am sure many of you have noticed good gluten-free granola is hard to come across but Enjoy Life’s is definitely among the good ones. It has a great texture and consistency that holds up well to a pool of milk. Try sprinkling some on your favorite ice cream for a great topping (see, there’s the dessert connection). While it is sweet, it is not overly so with the base having a mild sweetness that gets a boost from the mini-chips that are scattered throughout. There are also zero artificial ingredients which makes indulging all the sweeter.
Enjoy Life is known for being über allergy-friendly and free from: wheat, dairy, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, peanuts, egg, and soy – so pretty much something safe for the majority of my food allergic compadres.
Their Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mega Chunks are dairy-, nut-, and soy-free bits of deliciousness that are as versatile as they are tasty. I actually had the opportunity to sample these at an event here in NYC but when a full package arrived one day the experimentation began. First off, they are great as a sweet treat straight from the bag – but that is just the beginning. Toss a few in your favorite gluten-free cake or brownie mix and enjoy chocolate nirvana. Or, better yet, toss some in the batter and then top off with some more chunks for chocolate overload.
