Getraw - yummy raw food snacks!

Another Swedish secret... getraw ;)
I was presented with this amazing set of snacks:
They're non-dairy, non-soy, gluten-free, 100% raw & organic, & contain no refined sugar.

They are fulfilling and delicious... with a great amount of protein!

The Licorice one tastes like a great sunny afternoon by the lake :)

Toffee and Hazelnut is chewy, but the nuts inside also gave a nice crunch. It was sweet, but not overly so!

Raspberry and Goji... the tartness of the berries mixed with the dates and agave sweetness make a perfect flavor combination for those days you feel under the weather!

Chocolate and Walnut is rich and tasty, raw cocoa and big chunks of walnuts make your day brighter :)
