For those who don’t know Carob is a powder made from the carob pod and it's commonly used as a substitute for chocolate. Some people claim that it is healthier than chocolate because carob contains 3 times more calcium than chocolate but it also lacks the antioxidants that chocolate has. I’m no expert so take that as you please. It is also supposed to be less flavorful than chocolate but there’s no way this could have less flavor than the chocolate on the other varieties of these out there.
One redeeming quality of the rice dream was that it was once again creamier than I had expected. Still the combination of the carob coating and the cookies made for an interesting taste to say the least. This one does suffer from the lack of sweeteners just like the chocolate pie did. The oatmeal cookies could definitely use some added sugar as well and some spices wouldn't hurt either. Oddly I kind of feel like this treat is growing on me the more I make my way through it. Now I’m not saying this is a great product but it is a nice change of pace. If you’re trying to avoid dairy for whatever reason, I’d easily recommend these over the chocolate version.
Verdict? A decent novelty for those who avoid dairy
Buy Again? Possibly but I think I’ll try one of their pints before I get one of these again.
