I do apologize that this is not another hilarious Youtube video, but it is delicious. While I can not eat these chocolate goji treats at base camp 1 in Nepal, I will be stashing them in my carry-on bag and snacking on them on my plane ride to India on Wednesday (the irony).  They were in backpack today as I flew from Charleston, SC to Seattle, and these yummy treats sweetened with agave nectar and sprinkled in coconut were filling enough to keep me from breaking down and buying M&Ms and super sugary Vitamin Water on the plane.  That alone makes them an awesome product, but they’re also raw, organic, and the bag they come in is compostable. Major kudos to Hawaii based Superfood Snacks for making the “first ever printed bag from 100% bidegradable and compstable materials.” And they already had me at chocolate and antioxidant rich.


About Rachel Steele

Rachel Steele originally hails from Charleston, SC, but schlepped all the way to Boulder to play in the mountains and study at the University of Colorado. She graduated with a degree in in Political Geography in 2008 and then briefly traveled in India and was certified as a yoga teacher in 2009 at Holy Cow Yoga Studio. She has since returned to her mother's ancestral home of Brooklyn, NY and is proud to call the Williamsburg area home. Despite what her mother recently said, she doesn't think she's become a hipster. She does wears many hats, including a fedora with a pin of Lindsey Lohan on it, but the one that is most important to her is that of a feminist filmmaker. She also loves live music, enjoys cooking, and is happiest when rabble rousing. She does miss Colorado, but feels very connected to her college home when writing for elephant.
