ReCharge® Naturally Enhanced Snack Mixes - Product Review

Recently I was asked if I would be interested in reviewing a product.  I've never done this sort of thing before but it sounded fun and the product sounded like something I or my husband would but anyway, so said, why not?
I'm glad I did.  We have a new favorite snack at my house.  ReCharge® Naturally Enhanced Snack Mixes are great.  In addition to tasting great and being perfect to eat on the go the "ingredients are enhanced with probiotics, Omega-3, pomegranate seed oil and Chia seeds They contain antioxidants and much of the recommended daily value of vitamin B6. They're low-sodium snacks and contain zero grams of trans fat and cholesterol."    

I received samples of the following 3 snack mixes.

  • Super Charged Cranberry Blend includes Omega-3 fortified cranberries, pomegranate infused cranberries, and probiotic dark chocolate cranberries, plus almonds, dark chocolate chunks and yogurt-dipped peanuts.
  • Chia ReCharge® Stix Mix features Chia Sticks mixed with cranberries, almonds, dark chocolate chunks, yogurt-covered raisins, pineapple and white chocolate drops.
  • Dark Chocolate Energy Boost includes an invigorating mix of coffee beans, probiotic cranberries, and raisins – all coated with dark chocolate – plus almonds, pineapple and dark chocolate chunks.

The only problem I had with this review was keeping my husband (and son) out of the samples before I was ready to open them and give them a try.  I wanted to make sure I was able to taste them all before they were all eaten up.

While I loved all three my favorite was the Dark Chocolate Energy Boost.  I loved chocolate covered coffee beans. And the dried pineapple and cranberries were perfect with the bitterness of the coffee beans.   My husband said we would definitely be buying these snack mixes in the future.  There is so much variety in each mix and I love that they are all natural.  Our 2 1/2 year old also enjoyed the different mixes.  He's a big fan of nuts, dried fruit and chocolate.  

All three varieties are available in 10 pound bulk and will be available soon in 5oz re-sealable bags.  ReCharge® is available in bulk bins at Ingles and Healthy Home Market locations.
