Before I drive 100 miles each way, I am wondering if it would be worth the trip for Enjoy Life products.  I have tried the rice milk chocolate bars and really loved those.  I am wondering about the Plentils and some of the cookies and bars.  Are these good and worth the drive?

 

Any specific ones that you like?

 

Thanks!

I like the chips. I use them to bake. That's about it. (just being honest!) the cookies just did not thrill me.

The plentils are very very good. I also liked the crunchy cookies, but not the soft ones. I also like their gluten and oat free granola (cinnamon raisin). And the chocolate, of course... :) Have fun!

Um, that's a whole lotta gas money! There are SO many websites that sell these products,

maybe go mail order before you make a 4 hour trip?

I ended up driving to get some Enjoy Life products and I am glad that I did.  I will mail order next time but I wanted to make sure that I liked them well enough.  I bought Plentils and they are very very good.  I also got a box of chocolate chip cookies and I really like those too.  I think they are keepers.

Their chocolate chips are the best, in my opinion!

I'm ok with the chocolate I think but something in either the Plentils or the cookies is causing a reaction.  

Glad I didnt buy a bunch of products.

I have tried a couple of brands of lentil chips.  Every one leaves me feeling blechy!  I don't think its gluten, just the lentils?  Flavorings?  Sometimes cheese flavorings on chips bug me.  Real dried cheese doesn't.

I don't think it's gluten either but something made me feel like crap in one of those products.  Oh well.  They were really expensive for what you get.  

The cookies have date paste in them and I have a problem with grapes and raisins so I think dates are in the same family...not sure really but the hubby can eat them....he'll eat anything.    :)

I didn't like those cookies.  They tasted like dates to me, not a chocolate cookie.

The cookies have bothered me too - I seem to be ok with one every once in awhile but any more frequently than that and I feel crappy. They are good though, IMO.
