The pretty packaging on Angell Organic Candy Bars is what first drew me into this product. What can I say? I’m a huge sucker for pretty things, and these candy wrappers are particularly fetching with their bold, stylized text and lovely color palettes. On closer inspection, turns out the bars not only look nice, but are organic and come in vegan, gluten-free, and ‘regular’ varieties- score!
The three flavor options offered are “Dark” (vegan, dark chocolate with a rich cocoa and almond center), “Crisp” (gluten free, milk chocolate with a crispy creamy chocolate center), and “Snow” (white chocolate with a sweet and creamy coconut center). Each of the bars is made with organic ingredients, low in sodium, fair trade certified, and contains nothing artificial. As the icing on the cake, Angell also participates in 1% For The Planet.
In terms of taste, the use of quality, organic ingredient really has a positive impact on the flavors present in each of the bars. The chocolate flavor is smooth and high quality, and the tastes are certainly not too ‘adult’ (i.e. bitter), making Angell bars a really nice treat for kids as well. The Dark bar has a wonderful deep chocolate flavor that is complemented nicely by the crushed almonds. The Crisp bar has a lovely flavor component that is quite caramel-like, while the Snow has a great chewiness (due to the coconut filling) and smooth, creamy, almost yogurt-like white chocolate coating.
The portion sizes are definitely smaller than your standard fare, but I actually quite like this since the size is great for portioning just the right amount without… going overboard.
Angel Organic Candy Bars can be purchased online via Amazon.com and Vegan Essentials (dark chocolate only) as well as select retailers throughout the country.
