Healthy Packaged Snack Review: Go Raw Ginger Snap Sprouted Cookie

Awesome healthy snacks for work: Go Raw Ginger Snap Cookies
What is the raw food diet?
The raw food diet, or raw foodism, is the practice of eating solely uncooked and unprocessed foods. It's a more stringent version of the clean eating diet plan, and is known for providing health and weight loss benefits due to the diet's heavy consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables.

Research shows that the raw food diet benefits the human body because when food hasn't been heated, microwaved, genetically-engineered or exposed to pesticides, it keeps most of its nutrients, and therefore betters health when consumed.

About GoRaw Junk-Free Healthy Packaged Snacks

According to GoRaw's website at, "raw foods are loaded with enzymes that help the body to properly digest and assimilate food for optimal nutritional value." GoRaw snacks are made with seed-based and densely-nutritious foods that are naturally sprouted, soaked and rinsed to boost their natural enzymes, vitamins and minerals.

Nutritiously, Go Raw Cookies sound like winning healthy snacks, but what about flavor? 

Let's just say that I couldn't put these ginger snaps down! Keep reading for the full review.

Skeptical at first, I expected raw cookies to taste as gross as nibbling on weed. After eating the first few, though, these raw cookies pleasantly surprised me with their sweet-and-tangy combination of ginger, coconut and dates. Each bite exploded with a zing at first, due to ginger's strong spiciness; but coconut and dates' sweetness, along with wholesome toasted sesames, soon took over.

The overall taste-experience was pleasurable with sweet, tangy and spicy flavors. If I didn't watch intake, I would have easily finished the whole bag!


Go Raw Ginger Snaps come in dime-sized bites, with raised, uneven texture from mending toasted coconuts, sesames and ginger with dates. They're crunchy but still soft to chew, and have the size and texture of any fun finger foods.

In my opinion, their texture and size are perfect.

Work Friendliness

These healthy packaged snack bites are not messy, sticky or greasy, and make great healthy snacks for work.

That come in clean-cut, re-sealable bags that are great for carrying and storing. They won't leave your desk messy or your fingers sticky. Also, they don't have strong odor, so you can enjoy them without bothering co-workers.

Because these cookies have no artificial additives, they won't leave you feeling greasy, bloated or tired. In fact, they give you natural energy to endure tough work days with.

Final Thoughts

The Go Raw Ginger Snap Super Cookies serve as both desserts and health foods. They're raw, and therefore contain foods' full nutrients, but are also tasty to snack on at work.

The only problem? They might leave you wanting more!

6. Go Raw Ginger Snap Sprouted Cookies

The Raw Food Diet began in the late 1800's, when Dr. Maximilian Bircher-Benner discovered that he could cure his own jaundice by eating raw apples. He then researched the benefits of raw foods on the human body, and discovered that when food has been cooked, microwaved, contaminated or genetically-altered, their immune-boosting nutrients dissipate. Therefore, raw foods are healthier than cooked foods. (Source: USNews Health - Raw Food DietIn addition to maintaining all nutritional value, raw foods are low in calories and help with weight loss.

LARABARS are as sweet and tasty as candy bars but made with all natural ingredients that provide real energy. LARABAR comes in many flavors, and they're all tasty. The "chocolate coconut chew" flavor, however, is one of the best.

4. Trader Joe's Dried California Persimmon 

Originating from East Asia, persimmons are sweet, juicy and tender-textured fruits packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and betacarotene. Due to their sweetness, persimmons are eaten as dessert in Asia.

Because persimmon fruits are juice, they're too messy to snack on at work. However, these dried persimmon slices from Trader Joe's are mess- and liquid-free. They contain the same sweetness and nutrients but are much more ideal as work snacks.
