Our family is always looking for good quality snack food. While I can find some locally in grocery stores, I also order online, but that can be tricky with the Arizona heat. I recently found a new company that makes yummy snacks, Laughing Giraffe Organics. Best of all, their delivery service includes an ice pack to keep the products cool.
About Laughing Giraffe Organics
Laughing Giraffe Organics was created and is owned by Phil and Kathy Gilmour, a retired couple who started the business out of their desire to find healthy food. Two of their daughters have now joined them in the business with one serving as CEO and the other serving as Vice President of Sales.
All Laughing Giraffe Organics items are organic, non-GMO, gluten free and nutritionally dense. They are prepared in a facility that is soy, wheat, dairy, and peanut free. The facility does use walnuts, pecans, almonds, and other tree nuts.
They sell their snack foods on their website (buy $50 worth of products and receive free shipping, a t-shirt, and a bag), but they also sell them online at Amazon, Thrive Market, VitaCost, and Whole Foods.
In addition, they donate 5% of all sales from their website to different animal protection charities.
What We Sampled
The items that we received for review are all certified USDA Organic, Gluten-Free, Kosher, and Non-GMO Project Verified. They are also vegan and unsulfured.
The three items we received for review are:
- Kick’n Pineapple
- Kick’n Mango
- Chocolate Snakaroons
The Kick’n Pineapple is comprised of organic dried pineapple, organic sweet potato syrup, organic sweet potato powder, organic coconut sugar, organic ground cinnamon, organic ground ginger, organic ground cloves, and himalayan pink salt.
I loved this one! It did not just taste like dried pineapple; it had a depth of flavor. It was sweet, but not overly sweet. The sweet potatoes give it a unique sweetness, which I loved. I also enjoyed the chewy texture.
The Kick’n Mango has organic dried mango, organic coconut oil, organic coconut sugar, organic lime juice powder, organic dried jalapeno.
This one was more savory and has a slightly sour taste because of the lime. My husband, who loves spicy things, could definitely taste the jalapeno.
The Chocolate Snakaroons, which are also raw, have organic unsweetened coconut, organic agave syrup, organic cacao liquor, organic coconut syrup, organic vanilla extract (gluten-free), himalayan pink salt.
These chocolate delights have a coconut taste, but they’re not too sweet, there is just a hint of sweetness, My family found it to be the perfect snack because it’s not too sweet, but is good to give you energy. PB & J Girl especially loved these and ate two or three every day.
In addition to Chocolate Snakaroons, there are many other flavors available:
- Lemon Snakaroons,
- Salted Caramel Snakaroons,
- Vanilla Snakaroons,
- Banana Snakaroons,
- Goji Maca Snakaroons,
- Aztec Chocolate Snakaroons, and
- Coffee Bean Snakaroons
If you’re looking for a healthy snack to meet a variety of dietary needs, consider Laughing Giraffe Organics. Since getting the items for review, I’ve since seen the products at Sprout’s and bought myself the Vanilla Snakaroons, which I really enjoyed. Those were a pure coconut delight. We can’t wait to try more.
NOTE: I received these items for free in exchange for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.
