The power of cocoa has never been so perfectly executed.  Eat. Think. Smile. products boast  a proprietary blend of natural cocoa and premium variety known as cacao Lavadoa washed cocoa that is naturally higher in antioxidants because it goes through an all-natural process – which they call CocoaOne cocoa.

Let’s be honest,  who doesn’t love a healthy dose of cocoa, chocolatey goodness? Well, check this out:

Believe it or not, not all cocoa is created equal…sooo how do they do it?

 Now, let’s get down to the fun part!  Here are alllll of the products that Eat. Think. Smile. has come up with!

They make Crispy Thins (which were my favorite!), Baked Nutrition Bars, Granola Clusters, and Chewy Granola Bars

The texture of those little Crispy Thins, which come in three varieties,  Savory Sea Salt, Red Raspberry and Sweet Cinnamon, is perfect.  They’re crunchy, thanks to the little sesame seeds that adorn each cracker…and would you believe these nutritional stats?  You get 46 pieces for a 120 calorie serving?!

Yep, you guessed it.  Wholesome ingredients, too! 

I’m not sure there’s anything about this line that I DON’T like!

My next favorite were the Granola Clusters

More specifically, the Cinnamon Almond variety 

INGREDIENTS: WHOLE GRAIN ROLLED OATS; BROWN SUGAR; PALM OIL; ALMONDS; EVAPORATED CANE JUICE; COCOA; CRISP RICE (RICE; SUGAR; SALT; MALT BARLEYFLAVOR); HONEY; CINNAMON; SALT; NATURAL FLAVOR; SOY LECITHIN

These little snacks are perfect to eat as toppings on your morning oatmeal for a little added crunch, or simply to pop in your mouth as pre-workout fuel!  They’ve got simple sugars (from the evaporated cane juice & brown sugar) AND complex carbs (from the whole grain rolled oats) which will give you a boost of sustained energy!

Lastly, we’ve got the Baked Nutrition Bars.

 

The flavors included Oatmeal Raisin, Red Raspberry, Orange Cranberry and Dark Cherry.

These weren’t my favorite, but they are a wholesome, convenient option when I’m running out the door with no time to prepare breakfast.  I think they had good flavor, but they were a little bit dry in my opinion.  For 200 calories a pop, I would rather feel as though I’m indulging.  Although, you can’t argue with the 7g of fiber and 4g of protein.

 I think I’m going to try crumbling my last one, heating it in the microwave, and pouring some unsweet vanilla almond milk overtop!  That way, the moisture can soak up the oats!
