Good For You Dessert and a GIVEAWAY!

Every once in a while, I get a sweet craving.  When I reach for a snack, it is usually going to be something crunchy and something salty.  But not always.  Sometimes, I need a hint of sweet but I don't want JUNK!  By JUNK, I mean a product with unknown ingredients and words I can't pronounce.

This is where Hail Merry comes in.  All natural, good for you ingredients with no junk!  I recently had the opportunity to try some of their macaroons.  I, of course, opted for the sea salt caramel flavor.  I can never turn down anything with sea salt caramel!

DISCLAIMER: I was provided with products from Hail Merry, LLC. at no cost to review and Giveaway.  I was not compensated for this post and all opinions are my own.

I found them at Whole Paycheck Foods of course, in the refrigerated section.  The fact that they are in the refrigerated section should show you the freshness of the ingredients.  Anything that has an expiration date and all that!


I found them on the very top shelf of the refrigerated section at my local Whole Foods.


They have yummy flavors to match every mood.  They have Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Lemon, Choco, Strawberry, Blonde and Caramel Sea Salt Macaroons.  They are gluten free and plant based raw macaroons.  


Another cool fact about these macaroons is that when they get to room temp, they fall apart which means, they MELT in your mouth!  OH MY YUM!

They also make something called the Miracle Tart.  Again, all natural, plant based and vegan!


I tried the Coconut Vanilla Creme one and it was DELISH!  So rich and creamy!


 I love these tasty treats and Hail Merry has offered to give one of my readers 1 each flavor of Macaroons- 6 bags total (value $24)!  I can't wait for you to try them too!

  1. I try to stick with healthy natural ingredients. I usually crave sweets later at night so I will make a chocolate smoothie or eat a greek yogurt with fruit.

  3. Not going to lie, ice cream is my go to for a sweet tooth fix but I am trying to get a healthier variety of snacks in my stash so I have better options available for when the need arises.

  4. And I am trying to get into the mindset of ingredients being important and actually checking those kind of things out. I'm in transition to better habits, I hope.

  5. There are too many ways to satisfy my sweet tooth - from Herbalife Healthy Meal shakes, and anything that involves chocolate and coconut. The sea salt macaroons in your post sound delicious.

  10. I forgot to add - yes, ingredients are important to me - I always read the ingredients before buying anything, and many things I just won't buy if there is anything dubious or downright bad.

    If I didn't have an insatiable sweet tooth I swear I would look like Cindy Crawford, lol! And when I do indulge in sweets and rich desserts I make it worth my while by seeking out whole ingredients, original sources of sugar instead of chemcials, and of course, TASTE. That is the key factor that keeps anyone coming back for more, and if your product is healthy and organic and all that jazz, it still doesn't make a difference if it doesn't taste delicious. Hail Merry has always offered very delicious treats, which gives it a bang for its buck when taking into consideration the incredible wholesome ingredients. Thanks, Hail Merry!(And it also has a super cool, clever name.:-))

  15. I usually eat 90% dark chocolate when I need a fix sometimes with a small glass of port (yum)!

  16. Food ingredients are very important to me. I pretty much eliminated my sweet tooth! Never used to believe the "if you give up sugar, you won't miss it" talk, but it's true! And once you do, everything is too sweet! I even eat 100% cacao (baking chocolate). haha
    My treats are mostly coconut and cocoa based. I make "fudge" with coconut milk, coconut oil, cocoa, shredded coconut, vanilla extract etc. :-) So many yummy recipes online...I just leave out the sugar.

    thank you for hosting this yummy giveaway!
