Udi's, Kinnikinnick, and Enjoy Life...Oh my!

Okay, I just realized how far behind I'm getting on product here is my attempt to catch up, just a little.

First up is Udi's Double Chocolate Muffins.  My mother-in-law was nice enough to buy these for us, and they were awesome.  We kept them in the freezer, then popped them in the microwave when we wanted them, it was like eating warm chocolate cake.  Yes, they were a bit heavier than cake would be, but muffins are supposed to be.  They were the indulgence in chocolate that I, yes, they were dairy-free and soy-free, too!

Overall Rating 10 out of 10 I love Udi's, they make great products, that taste like they were meant to taste.

Next up is, of course, more donuts...I love Kinnikinnick donuts, we've tried the chocolate glazed and the vanilla glazed, so we just had to try the Kinnikinnick Cinnamon Sugar Donuts!  It actually all started on Monday, I went to take my boys out to dinner to the only place in town where we can all eat a decent meal, and I forgot that they are closed on Mondays. Well, our wonderful health food store, Shangri La, is right next door, so I treated them to donuts instead. :)  It took us all of maybe a day to devour the entire box...and that was with me trying to restrict how quickly we ate them.  I think these ones are the best we've tried so far, and we loved the other ones, so you know how good these ones are!
Overall Rating 10 out of 10 Thank you kinnikinnick for making amazing donuts and wonderful cookies, too!

And finally, we are to Enjoy Life Foods boom CHOCO boom Rice Milk Chocolate Bar.  I saw this at Walmart of all places (our Walmarts here in town really don't have the best gluten/dairy/soy-free selection), but it was back when I was still missing chocolate, especially milk chocolate, obviously.  So, I thought I'd splurge (and it's a splurge when you're paying over a $1.50 for a regular sized candy bar) and try it.  It definitely wasn't a Hershey bar.  It reminded me of those Palmer chocolates that you get around the know those cheap ones that are waxy and don't have the right texture?  Well, that's what this was, but in spite of that, I still devoured the whole candy bar, so it wasn't that bad.  I won't buy them very often, maybe I'll get some for my little one to put in his stocking for Christmas, but that'll be about it.  I can take care of my chocolate cravings in other ways, like Silk Dark Chocolate Almond Milk or Kinnikinnick chocolate glazed donuts, or Udi's Double Chocolate Muffins, or...well you get the picture, I can still eat good chocolate while being dairy-free.

Overall Rating 6 out of 10  for the price I don't want to feel like I'm eating cheap chocolate, but it still works as a candy bar, and for little ones that don't get candy bars, it's a nice treat.
