Hail Merry’s™ Scrumptious Macaroons

Pies, cakes, cookies, ice cream…you name the dessert, and I want it. Luckily, I am always on the search for a healthier dessert alternative. I would not have thought that a “raw” macaroon could be so amazingly, incredibly tasty. Well, I came across that over the weekend. This tastiness was made by the company Hail Merry™. Hail Merry™ is a company based out of Dallas that is trying to bring a greater awareness to the raw food diet. Let’s add a brief explanation of what a “raw food” diet entails. They are specifically trying to bring awareness to raw oils such as coconut. Coconut oil contains the fatty acid lauric acid, which has been linked to healthier skin and shinier hair.


I had the pleasure of tasting Hail Merry™. Raw Chocolate Macaroons. These macaroons consist of maple syrup, shredded coconut, dark cocoa, organic cold pressed coconut oil, vanilla, and a pinch of sea salt. The first bite flooded my taste buds with coconut, chocolate and a mild hint of the vanilla. It was like eating a very fresh and flavorful cookie. It still had that sweet taste you look for in a dessert. Throughout the years, I have become a fan of the raw food diet. I, myself, am not a raw foodist, but I have seen the benefits it has had for other people. These people just seem to be overall glowing and more energetic. When you eat healthier foods that are more natural and not as processed, your body is able to function at a higher energy level. It excites me that these raw products are becoming more mainstream. For those of you who are not familiar with the raw food diet, these macaroons can still satisfy that sweet tooth. Look for Hail Merry™ products at Market Street™.
