Boom Choco Boom – Parve

The boom CHOCO boom snack bar from ejoylifefoods.com was a real find. Before I even opened the package, I notice very large and clearly printed symbols designating the bar as vegan, kosher parve and certified Gluten Free. At last a snack bar from a company that gets it. Now vegans, kosher, lactose intolerant and gluten intolerant people can all enjoy a common snack.

OK enough about the packaging and on to how the product tastes. The key to this chocolate bar is that it is made from rice milk. So a quick sampling of the bar reminds you of a milk chocolate candy bar. While not being overly sweet, it still had enough sweetness to make most sweet tooths happy and the inclusion of rice crisp gave it a a great crunch. I could have easily eaten several in one sitting simply because they’re that good.

Another pleasant surprise is the break down of all ingredients: Evaporated Cane Juice; Non-Dairy Cocoa Butter; Natural Chocolate Liquor (Non-Alcoholic); Rice Milk Powder (Rice Syrup Powder, Rice Starch, Rice Flour, Salt, Carrageenan); Salt.For a change, I didn’t need a dictionary or a chemistry book to know everything that it contains.
A finer read of the back of the packaging goes on to state that the bar doesn’t contain 8 of the most common allergens including no: wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy , fish or shellfish. We tip our hat to Enjoy Life Foods for thinking of the needs of the greater community instead of just the mass market.
For the bar’s overall taste and the company’s concern for the digestive needs of many different kinds of people we give the boom CHOCO boom a 4.5 out 5.
