Snack Series: Boom Choco Boom

Snacks without wheat, eggs, soy, nuts, and milk can be really difficult to find. That’s why I am always on the lookout for easy on-the-go snacks that can be thrown in a lunch box, backpack, or handbag. This is one of a series of posts on allergen-free snacks.

My latest snack find is chocolate. Dark, decadent, delicious chocolate.

Until now, I didn’t think it was possible to create a chocolate bar without some kind of lecithin or emulsifier. The Enjoy Life Boom Choco Boom dark chocolate bars contain only evaporated cane juice, chocolate liquor, and non-dairy cocoa butter. That’s it. No milk, no eggs, no soy, no wheat, no gluten, no nuts.

The dark chocolate is by far my favorite. I have always liked my chocolate dark and plain. But the chocolate crispy rice bar is another great choice for those who prefer more of a milk chocolate taste – again, milk-free. This flavor of the bar also contains rice ingredients (including rice flour, rice bran, rice syrup, and rice milk powder) as well as salt, carrageenan, and raisin juice concentrate.

One of the things I love about the Enjoy Life products is their mission to provide products free of the top eight allergens, and I am really thrilled with the results here.

Have you tried the Boom Choco Boom bars? What’s your favorite allergen-free chocolate bar?
