http://www.treasuredearthfoods.com/) a San Marcus, Texas company. I met Ruth, the co owner of TEF, and she is just lovely. She was kind enough to share her dessert with all of my people so we could decide what we needed to take home. We needed to take home a lot of her most delightful, healthy desserts. My favorite is the Chocolate Kika. The Chocolate Kikas remind me a bit of chocolate cake doughnuts. I kept them in the freezer and when they are taken out of the freezer, 1 of 3 was sure they are made of ice cream. The Treasured Earth Food website says they taste like chocolate fudge. All I know is I could eat them everyday and so could my little people. They are DELICIOUS and really feel guilt free to eat. Oh friends, the best is yet to come.
The Chocolate Kika is similiar to a cookie but oh so much better. Let me tell you exactly why it is so much better. For starters, the ingredients. The Chocolate Kika is the ultimate deceptively delicious treat. Each kika contains spinach, celery, carrots, beets, and pumpkin. I don't know about you but I could never get my little people to beg for most of the veggies listed above before this treat. The Kika is sweetened with agave nectar. One benefit of agave nectar as a sweetner is it has a low glycemic index. This basically means it will not spike your blood sugar, so no sugar crashes. The Chocolate Kika also provides a bit of protein in the form of crushed almonds. My mouth is watering just writing about the Kika! Ruth, I need more Chocolate Kikas!!!
I purchased 2 packages of the Chocolate Kika, which is 24 cookies. They lasted all of 48 hours. The little people were begging for them but I wanted to hide them for the grown ups. Since the treats were so healthy I didn't mind letting them eat them daily. The baby, 3 of 3, made it known that he would not be left out of the treat time. He squealed with delight as he took a bite and followed it up with "ummmmm." Not sure if there could ever be a better testimony!
Now it's time for you to decide what you think of the Kika. Sweet Ruth has been nice enough to give me a box of the Chocolate Kikas for my friends. It's my first give away!!! I know I have quite a few readers I just don't know who you are. Please scroll down my page and click on "follow this blog." On Friday the lucky winner will be named and receive the scrumptious Chocolate Kika. I think you are going to LOVE them. Trust me, the thought crossed my mind to gobble up the box for the give away but I've never been a thief so why start now.
Treasured Earth Food will be at the Barton Creek Farmer's Market again on December 4th. TEF also can be ordered online from the website. Here is the product order link and there are many more tasty desserts. http://www.treasuredearthfoods.com/Products-and-Ordering.html Ruth says there are more desserts in the works too. I can't wait. Hoping to be the official taste tester. Do yourself a favor and try a Chocolate Kika. You just may have a new favorite dessert. I sure do! And I think I can definitely say that my little people do too.
