Hey, friends! We’ve made it to Friday! To say that I’m ready for the weekend would be a bit of an understatement! I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend. If you’re new to my blog, every Friday I share a new to me food or product. In this week’s Friday Food Finds, I’m sharing my review for Emmy’s Organics.
Here’s how Emmy’s Organics started:
Emmy’s Organics, Inc. was started by couple, Ian & Samantha in 2009 in Ian’s mother’s home kitchen in Ithaca, NY. After struggling for many years with digestive problems, Ian had to change his lifestyle at a young age to avoid gluten, dairy and other irritants. His path led him to learn and work with raw, vegan foods in a number of restaurants and cafés. After meeting Samantha, the couple realized that they both shared a similar passion for health and well-being. Samantha grew up as a dancer and a self-proclaimed “health nut.” One night, Ian taught Samantha a macaroon recipe that he had developed many years prior. Seeing how clean the ingredients were and how easy the recipe was to make, sparked a little idea that is now Emmy’s.
Emmy’s are 100% vegan, gluten-free and non-GMO and made with the highest quality raw ingredients. Emmy’s is most well known for their delicious macaroons. If you love coconut, you’ll absolutely enjoy their flavors. I tried Lemon Ginger, Coconut Vanilla, Chocolate Chip and Dark Cacao.
The macaroons are sold in 2 ounce packages and each contain 3 macaroons. I love the size and texture. Emmy’s macaroons are soft and are shaped like round discs unlike traditional macaroons. They are practically bite-sized and I think, the perfect sweet treat!
If I had to pick one favorite flavor, I’d have to say the Dark Cacao! These are moist and super-chocolatey. The Dark Cacao tasted like a rich, decadent coconut brownie. Pure chocolate bliss! So delicious you won’t be able to stop at one! They are rather dangerous delicious!
The Chocolate Chip macaroon tasted like a yummy chocolate chip cookie with coconut. Absolutely delicious moist and chewy macaroons. They are packed with rich, dark chocolate and gorgeous coconut flavor. They are so full of flavor and just melt in your mouth! I crumbled one of these on top of my Arctic Zero Cookie Dough Chip ice cream- match made in heaven!
These taste just like a classic blonde macaroon should, which in other words means it’s absolutely delicious. You can see tiny bits of vanilla bean throughout the macaroon. The texture and flavor reminded me of sugar cookie dough. You would never believe these are raw, gluten free, and vegan! Simply amazing!
Lemon and ginger create such an amazing flavor combination. This was surprisingly delicious! There is just enough coconut, just enough of the lemon flavoring and just enough ginger. This is the perfect treat!
I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to try some amazing goodies from Emmy’s Organics. I highly recommend them if you’re looking for healthier alternatives to conventional treats that are loaded with artificial, unhealthy ingredients.
Emmy’s Organics doesn’t just make delicious macaroons they also carry cereal and chocolate sauce ! Emmy’s website features a store locator if you’d like to pick up some snacks at your local grocery or you can order directly from their website.
