I love treats. In a “sometimes I have to have chocolate or I’m going to punch someone” type of way. And I indulge fairly frequently. But I have struggled to find a really good treat that really satisfies my cravings and that I also feel good about when I’m really trying to keep my inner cookie monster in check.

That is…until just recently. This is unsolicited testimony, although I would happily promote these products if it meant I got some free goods out of the deal.


These little guys are LEGIT. Totally delicious, rich, super satisfying and with a simple ingredient list that even the tidiest of eaters could support; (The chocolates are my favorite: organic maple syrup, dark cocoa, almond flour, organic extra virgin coconut oil, sea salt). They’re tarts from a company called Hail Merry and they’re delightful. I keep a couple in my fridge so I’ve got a good go to when that square of dark chocolate just isn’t doing the job. If you see them next time you do your grocery shopping, do yourself a favor and grab a one.
