Review of BROOKSIDE Dark Chocolate Crunchy Clusters.

BROOKSIDE has an awesome product out called Dark Chocolate Crunchy Clusters.  It's made up of dark chocolate, crispy multigrains, cranberries, and juices of pomegranate, raspberry, and blueberry (to name a few).  They are Kosher but not gluten free.  I decided to make up little sample packs to distribute to my co-workers, as long as they provided me with some feedback!

Here's the feedback I received from others:
  • Jackie: "These taste great! I like the crunch that it has with the berry flavor. I would like it in milk chocolate."
  • Brandon: "Very tasty!"
  • Jessica: "Very good! Tastes like Raisinets."
  • Larry: "These were a treat. I especially liked the berries. Rich tasting. Thanks!" Then he added later, "They taste expensive."
  • Jared (Who I was advised only eats healthy things.): "Excellent! Très bon!" 

Apparently these were SO popular that 3 of my sample packs were taken when I left them overnight.  Unfortunately, with no feedback left.  :(

My thoughts?  You can't just try it and not want more.  They taste great and are addicting!  Juice is infused into the chocolate making it very decadent and rich.  When you bite in you get a crispy crunch, also a soft chew from the cranberries and chocolate.  I left these out on the coffee table and Chris took a handful and was hooked.  He stated more than once, "These are REALLY good!"  They are great alone or paired up with something.  My pairing was as a topper for ice cream!  A MUST try!

The only thing that might be a problem for some people who calorie count is the serving size.  It does state that 40g, about 22 pieces, are 190 calories, but the pieces really range from large to small.  So unless you have a scale, you might go over your limit.  I got a 5oz bag which states there's about 3.5 servings per container, and I was able to give most of it away and enjoy a lot for myself.  So as long as you have self control (which can be hard with this because it's so tasty) you'll do fine!

This is a really good product to indulge.  I haven't seen it in my local stores yet but if you do, you should pick one up and give it a try!  You can also buy them on where they range from $4.12 to $43.74, depending on how much you want to indulge in!

This is a sponsored post. I received this as a free sample from Crowdtap & BROOKSIDE to try, review, and supply my honest opinion.
