I’ve been a big fan of Enjoy Life’s mini chips for awhile now, so when Enjoy Life asked me to review some of their new products, I was more than happy. They shipped me a bag of Mega Chunks – their newest chocolate chip for baking (or just for eating straight outta the bag).
These are dairy, soy, and gluten-free as well as vegan. They’re 75 calories for a tablespoon with 7 grams of sugar. One pack of 10 oz. is $4.99 online. Apparently they’re available everywhere! I had no idea they had so many massive retailers on board to sell these – I am so thankful!
Enjoy Life is great because it’s free of the 8 most-common allergens (wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish, shellfish) and also free of potatoes, sesame, sulfites, and casein. Also, it’s made in a dedicated facility. And you know how much I love a dedicated facility! They test all products down to 10ppm to ensure they are gluten-free (more extensive than the FDA’s 20ppm standard).
Since they’re not dairy-based chocolate (they’re cane juice, chocolate liquor, and non-dairy cocoa butter), they are definitely a different flavor and texture than regular milk chocolate chips with dairy (milk or milk fat or yumminess as I like to call it).
Non-GFBF loves these things. Then again, he can’t really tell the difference between these and other chocolate. He really likes these, and he likes it more that they are safe and made in a friendly facility. I, however, like real chocolate (and can handle the dairy). I’m not saying that I don’t like these, because I adore the mini chips, but if I’m getting a big chunk of chocolate, I wanted the real thing. But for what this is, I love it. The past 3 times we’ve been to a grocery store we’ve purchased Enjoy Life chocolate chips – and the other day I tried to find a brand that I felt safe buying and just ended up getting some Nestle dark chocolate chips. I ate some and they were just so…milky and melty! I couldn’t describe it, but after not having “real” dairy-based chocolate for a while, they were such a different texture!I don’t know why anyone who is dairy-free would not buy Enjoy Life chocolate!
Ingredients: Evaporated Cane Juice, Natural Chocolate Liquor (Non-Alcoholic), Non-Dairy Cocoa Butter.
Although they’re supposed to be used for baking, we just eat them by the handful if we want something sweet at night without making cookies or getting fro yo. I have a feeling you might not wait for baking with them either. I did however add them to my oatmeal banana cookies and they were a hit!
Now for the details of the giveaway! Win your very own bag of Enjoy LIfe Mega Chunks! (Don’t worry, it’s shipped with a cooler so your chocolate won’t melt!)
