Hail Merry Persian Lime Tarts--Yum!

Recommended Posts

I was prepping for a holiday party and was looking for something fun to take for dessert when I found these little gems at the health food store. I tried one right away and they are delicious! Super creamy and rich!

 

The crust is made with almond flour and the filling has stuff like coconut butter and agave nectar, so there's no dairy and no grains. They are certified G.F. Not something to have everyday but definitely fun for special occasions! They are a nice small size to pack in my purse to take to the party.

The site says that $45 overnight shipping is included in that price so if you can find them at a retail location they would be more reasonably priced.  The 340 calories would put me off from buying these on a regular basis but I LOVE tart lime flavored things :D.

I agree, shipping them would be way too expensive! They are less than $5 each at my health food store, so that's not a bad price for a special dessert once in awhile....

I saw these at one of the "health" food stores.  The ones I saw were small - about the size of a little round margarine tub.  Good to know they are tasty.  I might try one when I see them again. They are probably the same ones - 170 calories per serving (it has 2 servings).

Mine was only 170 calories, if I remember right. I wonder if this one that I linked to was a slightly different one from the same company....

 It says 170 calories, but 2.5 servings, so double that and then some :D.

Gotcha! I guess that I have to read the fine print a little better. ;) I'm not too worried about the calories for an occasional fun treat though, but it's good to know what they actually are. It's not too surprising that they are high, considering the amount of fats in it (almonds, coconut butter, coconut oil).

I guess  shipping alone  is a killer  price.. I  haven't seen them in any  of our local stores  , under $5.oo   for  an occasional treat  I  wouldn't  mind  ....there are  several gluten-free  items  I  would like to try but  shipping  & pricing  is  way to  high   for  my  budget....

I think I had one of those last year!  It was good!!  There's a restaurant (mostly carryout) in my area that cooks only healthy food.  Most of the business is meals to order that are delivered on a weekly basis.  A very cool concept!  The owner has celiac and lactose intolerance.  When I broke my hip last year, my hubs brought it to the rehab center for a treat.  When I was home, I ordered a weeks worth of meals to try it out.  It was...just okay.  I got sick when I ate the lactose free cheese that was on one of my burger meals.  I questioned her about it, making sure it was dairy free, and I was assured it was.  It definitely was not!!  Lactose free - yes, dairy free - no! So, I haven't ordered since.

That frozen food shipping can get ya good.  I tried one of those from a store, forget where, it was pretty good.  A nice treat.

I am a huge fan of Hail Merry's products, but the calorie content can be up there. I am a huge fan of their macaroons, namely the salted caramel ones. They make a heck of a bribe to get me to do things when I am feeling like " but I don't wanna" with me.  However their tarts like the  chocolate Almond butter one and the lime ones they have ones you can cut in half and eat in two different servings but the calorie content is way up there.
