Granted, there are other ‘vegan’ candy bars on the market, but many of them have a weird, unnatural flavor to them. These are more like the calorie, fat, and dairy laden candy bars that you probably long for from time to time – only they are not sweetened with high fructose corn syrup – but organic brown rice syrup.
So which Crispy Cat flavor rules supreme? Wow, that’s a hard question because honestly, they are all super good. There are three flavors to choose from. Chocolate sundae is decadent, tasting just like the ice cream that you probably had as a kid with marshmallow cream and dark chocolate fudge-like flavoring (200 calories, 6 fat grams, 2 grams of fiber, 4 weight watchers points). Then there’s mint coconut (and you know me, I’ve been really into coconut lately). Mint coconut is sort of like a cross between a peppermint patty and a coconut candy bar and for my personal tastes, it is the best of the three. It’s nothing short of heavenly (210 calories, 8 fat grams, 2 grams of fiber, 2 weight watchers points). And then last but not least is toasted almond, crammed full of chocolate flavor and toasted almonds (200 calories, 7 fat grams, 2 grams fiber, 2 weight watchers points). Toasted almond is only 95% organic, the other two choices are 100% USDA certified organic – all are 100% delicious and sure to cure that sweet-tooth craving. All are cholesterol, gluten and dairy free, too. I buy them at Whole Foods (in the organic food aisle, not the bar aisle), and they are also available at the Yummy Diet Food Store.
