Soft, tender, chewy and dense with sizable shards of coconut, Emmys macaroons are a purist's delight. We had our favorites, but there is a flavor for everyone in this wholesome sweet offering.

Raw snacks were all the rage at Expo West and Emmy’s Organics was a name that kept popping up, for good reason. After just a nibble of their Lemon Ginger delights, I knew that I had to sample every macaroon flavor in their line-up.

Emmys Macaroons: Raw, Organic, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free

These dessert-like snacks (or snack-like healthy treats?) are very tender but dense with thick coconut shreds. The wholesome format of Emmys macaroons made them a little crumbly (don’t try cutting them in half!), but all-around fulfilling. They are pleasantly sweet, easily squashing sugar cravings, while still venturing into nourishing territory.

The following was my take on each flavor:

Emmys Organics Macaroons: Raw, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free

Coconut Vanilla – Heavenly, just heavenly. This simplistic variety was my favorite, hands down. It possesses that rustic coconutty vibe, but the finish has a creamy mouth feel. The vanilla is intense and pure, like a good quality (dairy-free) ice cream.

Lemon Ginger – Mild lemon and ginger notes are more pleasant than potent in this complimentary flavor combo.

Chocolate Chip – The macaroon itself acts as a subtle backdrop for the very soft, generously-sized dark chocolate chips that quickly melt in your mouth.

Mint Chip – The mint essence is delightfully deep and grown-up in flavor. Unlike the Chocolate Chip, the “chips” in this flavor are crunchy cacao nibs.

Dark Cacao – The first word that came to my mind was lovely. The dark chocolate flavor is delightful and intense, but not bitter in the least bit.

Chai Spice – Oh my, what a divine scent! Like a true spicy chai tea with a flavor that matches. This one takes second place.

Choco Orange – Deep, dark, chocolate with a rich orange essence. Intriguing and tasty, though I think a pinch of salt was needed to heighten the end notes.

Choco Chili – Wait, is this the chili… oh, there’s a little heat… holy spice, I need water! It isn’t blazing hot, but the chili is in there and it sneaks up and suddenly takes over, leaving the cocoa in the dust.

I love that Emmys Macaroons are sold in packages of three. One is perfect for a quick, low calorie hit, two is like an energizing snack bar, and three borders on a delicious mini-meal. Beyond dairy-free, they are also certified gluten-free, organic and non-GMO verified.

  1. when you looking to the ingredients label there is no sugar, but in NUTRITION FACTS there is. It’s ridiculous.
    Lemon Ginger – taste like coconut with almond flour. Not buying again because of sugar.

  2. Ingredients are the by far the biggest factor which determine a food’s healthfulness, not fat/sugar content. Fir example, a handful of raw almonds are ‘high in fat’ and a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice is quite high in sugar content. Yet they are both extremely nourishing.

    I guess some people are stuck in the 90’s and would rather eat artificial crap with Nutrasweet and margarine than snacks like Emmy’s Macaroons which are made from all natural, raw foods ingredients..??!

    • Not everyone considers natural fats unhealthy! And please note that it is still described as a “treat” not a healthy everyday food. Everyone has to decide what is healthy by their own standards!
