Are you a coconut lover? How about a Macaroon cookie lover? I am a big fan of coconut and macaroons, I absolutely love them! For this review I received one bag of Blonde Macaroons and one bag of Choco Macaroons. The Blonde Macaroons are so delicious, in my opinion they are the best I have ever had! The Choco are delicious too, but my favorite is the Blonde Macaroons. The Macaroons seem to just melt in your mouth, they are so good, I will have to place an order for more. One great thing I really love about these Macaroons, is that they are Raw, vegan and gluten free, along with rich in omegas, living enzymes, no refined sugar and no added oils!

About Hail Merry Organic SnacksHail Merry was created by Dallas fawa food chef Susan O'Brien. Ms. O'Brien's products are dehydrated at very low temperatures in order to protect the essential oils and living enzymes found in her organic raw ingredients.
Hail Merry products were designed by a Raw Food chef whose core philosophy is to bring awareness to the powerful benefits of healthy raw oils, which we must obtain from our diets. These plant based fats like Omega 3 & Oleic Acid can actually improve your cholesterol profile, reduce inflammation, and make our hair & skin more radiant.
However, once these dietary oils are heated at high temperatures they begin to oxidize and become rancid causing free radical damage to our cells! All of Hail Merry products are raw or dehydrated at very low temperatures to protect the integrity of these healthy dietary oils.
They use raw, cold pressed coconut oil, which contains lauric acid, known to promote a healthy immune system. Did you know that lauric acid is prevalent in human breast milk and is the first line of defense for babies against bacterial infections? That is why coconut oil is added to baby formula. Coconut oil also is comprised of medium chain fatty acids, which are quickly used as fuel for the body and are likely not going to be stored as body fat.
They prefer maple syrup for its exceptional flavor profile. It also contains more vitamins and minerals than any other sugar source available: including magnesium, zinc, and potassium. They know it’s not raw. Maple syrup may lack some living enzymes but they feel the flavor and vitamin/mineral pay-load is a great trade off. However, for those of you who are 100% raw foodist their new Blueberry Lemon Grawnola and Meyer Lemon Miracle tarts are both made with raw agave’. Look for these new agave’ sweetened items to hit the stores in mid May!
It is in their opinion that most granola’s on the market today are way too sweet and carb loading, not to mention they contain processed oils! Hail Merry’s gluten free Grawnola’s are nutrient dense nut blends that are very low in sugar and carbs, contains no added oils and are also suitable for diabetics! They prefer to add spices instead of sugars for added flavor.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. A product sample was received for review. I was not paid in any form of cash for this posting. The opinions expressed are my own and were NOT influenced in any way.
