Love Force (Giveaway)

You've been waiting your whole life for this...

At least, that is what the package of the Love Force bar that I picked up at Essene says.

My whole life? A tad dramatic, don't we think?

Surprisingly, no, not dramatic at all. This thing is freaking delicious. I mean..amazingly delicious. I'm sorry that I only bought the Chocolate Orange flavor. I'll have to travel back to Philly to get some more (don't worry, its only a 10 minute drive that I now know will be totally worth it).

This particular flavor features walnuts, cacao, and coconut, as well as almonds, carob, agave, vanilla bean, and orange oil (all ingredients raw and organic).

Pros: raw, organic, vegan, gluten free, absofreakingdelicious, moist, delicious, and really delicious.

Cons: $$$, high sugar content (23g).

Nutritional Information: 280 Calories; 11g Total Fat; 6g Saturated Fat; 180g Sodium; 49g Carbohydrates; 9g Fiber; 6g Protein.

When you first take it out of the package it is a little wet, but that is just goodness that keeps it so moist. At the same time, it isn't squishy, and the texture is perfect. And those three little almonds in it? Still perfectly crunchy. Its also got the perfect balance of tasting delicious while being good for you. It is easily the best raw bar I've ever had.

The packaging is awesome too. It markets itself as "Edible Love, Light, and Happiness". How true. All food should make you feel this good. No lie, I am super happy right now and definitely in love.

So in love, that I have to share some:
1. Check out the link above and leave me a comment telling me which flavor you would most like to try (either the bars or the bread).
2. Link to the giveaway in your blog, and I'll enter you twice!
*If you don't have a blog, tell someone about the giveaway, get them to enter and say that you referred them, and you'll get yourself another entry!

The winner will get 5 bars (or breads, if that's your thing) sent to their doorstep (or post office, or mailbox, or wherever you get your mail) by yours truly!

Get the comments in by August 31st! Seriously, comment, even if you've never commented before, you want to try these, I promise!

  13. I'm so glad you found jackfruit. It's usually at Indian or Asian specialty markets. Try the "crab" tostadas or sushi if you get the chance :)

    I definitely did read your comments on my book...life just became very busy very fast when it was picked up, and I had to start non-stop revising.

    I have to applaud you for working with a cooktop :) I'm going to send a ton of good oven karma your way!

  14. OO the sun flax raisin or rye breads would be awesome because raw breads are so expensive and I don't own a dehydrator. But the Fig ginger bar also sounds incredible because fig is my favorite fruit. And I'd like to try the chocolate lemon too just for a change from the usual chocolate orange.

    ps, i'm thinking of making your tropical rice for a potluck this weekend, I think it will be a hit!

  31. I just found my way over here from Gluten Free Gidget...what a fun blog! I really want to make your banana bread cookies! And I'm always looking for gluten-free snacks for when I travel...the chocolate vanilla bar sounds great, but I'm kind of fascinated by the idea of raw bread. I've never had it before!
