Disclosure: I received this product for free from Moms Meet, May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet blogger, I agreed to use this product and post my honest opinion on my blog. The opinions in this post are my own.
Whether for myself or my kids, I am always on the hunt for nutritious snacks that are not only good for us, but tasty too. Lat month Moms Meet asked if I would be interested in trying Hail Merry's Merry Bites. And after reading about Hail Merry's Merry Bites and doing a little research to see what other moms were saying about them, I said yes. My package arrived about two weeks ago and I'm so glad that I decided to give them a try. Keep scrolling to find see the adorable package they sent me as well as my first impression and unboxing video!
What I Received
Before I get into exactly what in my package, can we take a moment to admire how pretty the Hail Merry tin is? How adorable is this tin? The lid features the Hail Merry Queen surrounded by stars and "Raw Love" underneath while the side of the actual tin is decorated with the words "Vegan," "Raw," and "Gluten-Free" all separate by cute little blue hears. And the use of our nation's patriotic colors only adds to the cuteness factor. I think this is probably the cutest package I've "ever received from a sponsor. Other companies should definitely take note.
Nestled inside of this cute tin were the following:
- 1 Hail Merry fitted baseball cap
- 1 Hail Merry poncho style t-shirt
- 1 Caramel Sea Salt Merry Bites sample pack
- 1 Pure Vanilla Macaroon Merry Bites sample pack
- 1 Lemon Macaroon Merry Bites sample pack
- 1 Salted Brownie Merry Bites sample pack
- 1 Dark Chocolate Macaroon Merry Bites sample pack
- 1 Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Merry Bites sample pack
- 1 Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Merry Bites full-size sample
- 1 Hail Merry information pamphlet
- 2 Hail Merry roller durby girl temporary tattoos
- 2 Hail Merry Merry Bites coupons
What I Liked
What liked right away about the Merry Bites was that they were gluten-free, vegan and made from 100% plant-based ingredients. There weren't any artificial preservatives, high fructose corn syrup or other not so healthy ingredients. Merry Bites are certified vegan, C.L.E.A.N., gluten-free, peanut-free (they contain almonds though), paleo-friendly and Non-GMO verified. In the spirit of full disclosure Moo nor JJ could try these because they are allergic to almonds in addition to peanuts. However, if they weren't this is exactly the snack I'd purchase for them.
I enjoyed that the Merry Bites came in six different flavor varities: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Caramel Sea Salt, Salted Brownie, Pure Vanilla Macaroon, Lemon Macaroon, and Dark Chocolate Macaroon. Out of all six flavors my absolute favorites were the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Dark Chocolate Macaroon and Caramel Sea Salt. I don't think you can wrong with those flavors if you're looking to just taste test Merry Bites for yourself. The shredded coconut and coconut oil made these so moist and almost melt in your mouth soft, chewy and the maple syrup along with the vanilla add just the right amount of sweetness.
I was definitely bummed when all of my Merry Bites were gone. Thankfully, they threw in some coupons for some more. I can't wait to scurry to my local Whole Foods or Fresh Market to pick up some. I've already raved about how much I liked the packaging. Seriously they had everything packed away so neatly. And the t-shirt was wrapped in a cute ribbon that I will be repurposing as a hair ribbon for my puff. #NaturalHairLife Check out my First Impression and Unboxing video below to see all of my reactions to the different flavors.
