Koukla Delights: Granola | Worth The BITE?

Happy Thursday, Loves! I originally want going to share the first post in a new series I was creating called "Appetizing Alternatives" (you'll learn more in the future), BUT the blog post kept corrupting my blog layout, causing some really weird coding problems, so here I am with a Worth The Buy instead. Or I guess Worth The BITE, since we're talking food today!


I came across these Koukla Delights recently on a fun little visit to Farm Boy! Adam actually found them in the snack isle and really wanted to try them out. They were a bit pricey ($8 a bag) but we were super curious and bought them anyways.

If you are unaware of Koukla Delights, they are healthy and delicious treats that are organic, vegan, paleo, dairy free, gluten free agave free and GMO free. They are also made in Canada. I thought this was amazing!

The Vanilla Cocos are actually vanilla flavored coconut macaroons. The only ingredients include organic coconut flakes, organic almonds, organic maple syrup, vanilla extract and Himalayan crystal salt.

The Granola is a cranberry maple granola cookie. The only ingredients included are organic almonds, organic dates, organic pumpkin seeds, organic dried cranberries, organic maple syrup, organic sunflower seeds, and Himalayan crystal salt.

Sounds healthy enough?


I'd definitely recommend them! Both are absolutely delicious! I have tried countless vegan and paleo snacks, and was so surprised by these! They are sweet, delectable and surprisingly filling. Even though each bag is about $8, I never find myself eating more than one or two pieces at a time. 

I was actually more surprised to see I could recognize and identify each ingredient. There isn't any unnatural preservatives or chemicals in them. The texture is really nice too. They are soft and easy to bite into, but not squishy or soggy. There is a perfect mix between soft textures and crunch from nuts. They are also the perfect size to take a couple bites out of, like a cookie. If you're craving cookies or something, these definitely would be an amazing healthier alternative! 

My personal favorite is the Vanilla Cocos, but the Granola is absolutely amazing too!

The only thing I'd like to note is that if you are not used to eating vegan or paleo snacks, you may not like the flavor at first. I have enjoyed paleo snacks for years (and even got myself into a monthly subscription box of paleo snacks), so I have grown a love for the taste. BUT if you aren't used to the raw, non-artificial flavors of paleo snacks, you may not enjoy it. Adam really didn't like them. That is something to keep in mind. 

Nevertheless, I absolutely LOVED them! And definitely am going to be buying a bag of these weekly!
