Gluten-free Giveaway and Review: Hail Merry

Last Updated on

I was asked to review Hail Merry’s gluten-free, vegan, raw macaroons and granola.  VegNews Magazine awarded their products the Best New Vegan Product at the Natural Products Expo West earlier this month. Ahhh! Hail Merry’s macaroons are heavenly! I wasn’t quite sure at the time if I had an allergy to coconut or not, but wanted to sample one rather than rely on my husband’s sweet tooth. I ate 3 chocolate macaroons without stopping! They almost melt in your mouth! And they are such a healthy snack! The next day I sampled the vanilla ones, and they are also melt in your mouth good! Of course, I am a chocoholic and like the chocolate ones the best! I had to save some for the hubby and did not eat any more, but really wanted to. I had no allergic reaction at all, but did to some coconut oil the following week. I really think it depends upon how coconut is processed. Hail Merry is sponsoring this gluten-free giveaway and review by offering one lucky winner some of my favorite chocolate macaroons in a gift set with a t-shirt for the raw foodist in us all!
