Ever wish your coffee could be something you eat out of a snack bag? Wish your coffee had a hit of cocoa in it, without being one of those sweet "mocha" things from the barista? Be honest, have you ever fantasized about nutty chunks in your chewy coffee leather? Be prepared to have your dreams become reality with Nutty Goodness Espress Yourself fruit bites. It's a caffeinated gala in your mouth, with fruits like date and apple balancing pecans, hazelnuts, and flaxseeds. But all the while, that coffee-cocoa flavor is front and center and helping you through your morning. Or evening. Or . . .
For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.
You can have your coffee and chew it, too. Nutty Goodness created Espress Yourself just for the crazy coffee lovers out there who ain't got time for a hot cuppa, but have plenty of patience to chew on a snack when mid-morning comes around. This flavor starts with dates and apples to set a sweet and toothsome base, then the real showstopper flavors of coffee and cocoa merge with pecans and hazelnuts. But wait, there's more: flaxseeds add crunch and lemon throws the whole recipe into balance with the barest hint of tartness. Did you know that espresso in Italy is often served with a twist of lemon? Now you do. It's quite strange and wonderful, just like these fruit bites.
Each mouthful is the perfect middle ground between those gooey and too-sweet fruit bars and the crunchy nut bars pasted together with rice syrup. Nutty Goodness bars are toothsome - they satisfy that craving for chewy that is hard to satisfy on a real-foods lifestyle.
Here's what they have to say about this flavor: "Nutty Goodness Espress Yourself is for the creators, the innovators, and all the unsatisfied. We've brought the aroma of rich espresso together with nature's best fruits and nuts, so you've got the inspiration and energy to change the world. Save the day, superhero!"
All of the flavors of Nutty Goodness fruit leather explodes beyond what you thought possible in taste and texture, using all raw ingredients like dried fruit, nuts, and spices. I've had some pretty OK newfangled fruit leathers in recent years, but these from Nutty Goodness are amazing because you get the sweet chewiness and spices with the texture from big nut pieces suspended like jewels in each bite.

About Nutty Goodness
"Walker and Ben don’t live in the woods. They don't play hacky-sack and they didn’t invent Nutty Goodness (Their friend (Nicole) did.) They’re just two regular guys on a mission to "take back the snack." Now they want you to join the fight.
The way they see it, snacking has always been our ally in the fight against daily hunger, fatigue and really bad moods. You don't need an energy drink to boost morale or dominate your day. In fact, you shouldn't have to eat artificial anything, in order to crush your cravings and live a healthy lifestyle. You just need the right food to snack smart.
Nutty Goodness is a lot like Walker and Ben: sweet, natural, completely free of BS and a little bit nutty. It is (and will always be) made from nothing but fruit and nuts, without GMOs, wheat, dairy, gluten or any added sugars."
Nutty Goodness Espress Yourself's Healthy ingredients
Organic Dried Dates and Apples
Organic apples and dates are the main source of sweetness in these bars, and a natural preservative and source of awesome chewiness.
Apples kick in great fiber and a tangy flavor. Dates are vitamin and mineral-rich — they’re particularly high in iron and vitamin K.
Organic Coffee and Cocoa
Theobromine, caffeine, and chocolatey joy combine with these anti-oxidant rich superfoods. The wonders of cocoa cannot be summed up in just a few sentences but it can lower your overall stress and just make you feel a little bit happier. Isn't that what health is all about?
