Enjoy Life!

I was recently sent Enjoy Life's new "boom Choco boom" bars to sample.  

Enjoy Life has long been one of my favorite brands but I must say I was skeptical of a chocolate bar being good that was gluten free, dairy free, and soy free.  However, I was pleasantly surprised!  

All 3 varieties that I sampled (rice milk, dark chocolate, and crispy rice) were delicious and tasted just like a "normal" chocolate bar!

In addition to being gluten free, dairy free, and soy free, the "boom Choco boom" bars are egg free, peanut free, tree nut free, certified vegan and kosher plus they are made in a dedicated nut and gluten free facility!

Visit their website at to download a coupon to save 75 cents on any two chocolate bars.  

You can purchase these bars at many grocery stores and health food stores nationwide.  You can also buy them in bulk at Ms. Celiac's Market!
