When I reviewed 18 Rabbits bars awhile back, I had a simple request. I wished that they would make a bar that was both gluten-free and vegan. Well, they were obviously listening, as they recently sent me the newest addition to the 18 Rabbits family: Belle Bananas Foster. This little beauty is both wheat-free and dairy-free.
Can I get a WOOP WOOP?
Thanks, Jay-Z, for popping into my head, and now I must share with you all this classic:
Back to Belle, when planning this review, naturally I went straight to the reverent source for judging such pivotal matters: The Boyfriend. Who devoured 1/2 of Belle in 2.5 seconds flat, deeming her "Delicious, banana-y and satisfying," adding "This would be a great meal-replacement," and "You know I love banana anything, so I love this."
Hopefully, The Boyfriend loves me as much as he loved Belle. She might be giving me a run for my money, with all of her delicious nooks and cranies.
I thought Belle was super sweet, tasty, crunchy and chewy, all at the same time. The chewiness means it takes a minute to eat, meaning The Boyfriend is totally right, Belle would make a great lunch, or at least, for me, a good fourth meal. The bananas remind me of a good, restaurant-style bananas foster dessert, and who doesn't want dessert for a fourth meal?
Belle Bananas Foster is available now at Peet's Coffee and Tea, and hopefully soon from 18 Rabbits.com.
See you tonight for a very special Meatless Monday Mac and Cheeze recipe!!!
