Blueberry-pomegranate nibbles.

I think we can all agree that homemade is better, right? But what's a hungry vegan to do when she's on the go and can't always get to the kitchen, or wants to keep healthy snacks in her desk at work? I submit to you my solution: Mareblu Naturals Blueberry Pomegranate Trail Mix Crunch.

Now, that is a hella long name for a snack that is, when we get right down to it, granola bites. And don't worry, I'm not selling out to Mareblu and showering them with praise in exchange for kickbacks. (Though, if they're reading....) The stuff is just that good. Red and I were wandering around Costco one day, and I found these in the impulse aisle. You know the one I mean—it's right near the front, and it's got all the candy and chocolate and pretzels. Usually, nothing good lurks there. But the Mareblu Trail Mix Crunch must have been new, so they were pushing it hard.

I may have kicked up my heels a little when I read "100% Vegan" on the back of the bag. They're also gluten-free, wheat-free, and peanut-free (though certainly not tree-nut free). They don't have too much sugar or salt. Best of all, I can eat a handful—and my hands are small—and quiet my stomach's desperate whining. A coworker tried some, and immediately ordered me back to Costco to pick up a bag for her as well. (I did. She paid me.)

They are tasty little cubes of nomniness (Kelly @ easyVegan, I told you I was going to steal that!). That's all.

  1. Isn't it awesome when things come right out and say that they are vegan? It makes my life so easy to not have to read through the whole ingredient list, plus it makes me want to support them even more! And WOW, this looks like an AWESOME snack, blueberry pomegranate is an awesome combination.
