I appreciated that, on the whole, these raw treats weren't too heavy on the onion and the garlic. I get that onion and garlic can add flavor, but they can also be really overwhelming (and bad breath promoting). Some of their stuff was onion-y and garlic-y, but they also gave other herbs and spices a chance at the spotlight.
I liked that their Kale Krunchies are still green (Mega Green!) and not almost white, like a lot of kale chips are. That's not to say that they aren't flavorful and rich and cashew-y, as kale chips tend to be.
There's still plenty of all that cashew goodness (and sunflower and pumpkin seeds, too)!
All of the yummy foods from Lydia's Organics are made with love and all sorts of organic, raw, vegan, whole food ingredients that make you feel nourished even while you're eating them!
My dad loved the Rawkin' Beet Chips, as he's a big fan of veggies and of spiciness, but when they say 'spicy,' they aren't kidding. These beet chips are like breathe-red-hot-fire-SPICY!
Well, mostly. The spiced beet flavor was really unique (in a good way) so I kept trying to sneak a few chips...before my mouth promptly erupted into flames.
Still, it was worth it.
The crackers are crunchy and good, too, and the onion flavor isn't overwhelming. They're based on almonds (it's the first ingredient) but there's some carrot and nori and dulse in there, too, making the crackers super flavorful!
I like them with chocolate or jam :)
The nuttiness of the buckwheat really shines, but the dried fruits and seeds contribute a nice sweetness to round out the cereal. It's absolutely amazing on a bowl of Chobani (or soyogurt, if you're vegan). It's delicious and a great whole grain addition to breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack time!

At almost a tie with the cereals were the bars. They aren't like you'r usual bars - they're actually really hard and crunchy and dense, almost like thicker versions of the crackers/sunflower seed bread!
And it tastes amazing with jam and chocolate :)
