Summary:

Crispy, crunchy, sweet, and savory, this raw, superfood company takes packaged food to a new level. The nuts taste remarkably fresh and the flavors have a rich, earthy appeal. I was surprised to fall so fast and hard for the Goji Basil, with its bold yet tame seasonings and fresh herb fragrance.

If you aren’t familiar, Navitas Naturals is an amazing raw “superfood” company, packaging all types of organic, antioxidant-rich foods, from raw cacao powder to a protein superfood smoothie blend. They more recently started dabbling in prepared, yet still “raw” bites, like these Navitas Naturals Superfood+ Snacks.

Though I don’t normally discuss packaging, I have to mention how awesome these bags are. They’ve designed a zip pull on the package with resealable zipper underneath that is so easy to open and reseal – genius! Once open, we sampled three of the Navitas Naturals Superfood+ Snacks.

Maca Maple Navitas Naturals Superfood+ Cashews

These big, hearty clusters of fresh-tasting, raw cashews have a bold, caramel-like maca flavor. The overall taste is rich and intense yet mild and gently sweet all at once. The cashews are so crisp and creamy – I have no idea how they do it!

Goji Basil Navitas Naturals Superfood+ Cashews

And I thought the Maca Maple cashews were unique. This snack is a delight for the senses: each chunky bite offers a hint of sweet, warm savory notes, and the bold fragrance of fresh basil. I din’t expect to like this Navitas Naturals Superfood+ snack, but I ADORED it. Who knew that goji powder could meld so perfectly with bell pepper, basil, turmeric and spices, all heightened with the subtle, deep sweetness of coconut sugar (just 3 grams per serving). These clusters have the same fresh-testing cashews as the Maca Maple.

Chia Rosemary Navitas Naturals Superfood+ Pepitas

I’m not a big seed eater, but the flavor of these dry little bites is so delightful. Bold notes of garlic and rosemary are able to overshadow the sometimes overly bitter and earthy tone of pumpkin seeds.
