Review: MiiRo Low-Sugar Baking Products and Treats

The most significant changes in life are often unplanned. During the pandemic lockdown, I was able to lose 10 to 12 pounds and have miraculously kept it off for the past two years. Weight loss for a not-super-active woman of my age (who, let’s be honest, loves food) is a big deal.  Encouraged by this wildly unexpected accomplishment, I made some changes to my lifestyle that I wouldn’t have considered in the comfy ‘before times,’ like walking distances that are under, say, two miles, and eating salads for lunch instead cheeseburgers and fries. I’m also making smarter choices when it comes to sweet snacks, like reaching for a low sugar treat when I need a bit of an indulgence. This is probably how I ended up on radar of MiiRo, a woman-owned company making vegan-friendly, low-sugar chocolates and baking products that don’t sacrifice flavor. All good.

Do you like comfort foods? I sure do. My dream trip to the buffet includes a plate full of mashed potatoes, rice, and macaroni and cheese. Just being serious. That said, I am not much of a home cook, so it’s a big win to find convenience foods that deliver great taste and high quality to my single-lady life. This brings me to the products featured in today’s review: a selection of homemade-tasting side dishes from Bob Evans, a trusted name in quality foods for over 60 years. Bob Evans sides not only make your life easier — giving you all kinds of options when it comes to meal planning and prep — but each dish is created with only all-natural ingredients for delicious taste you could otherwise only get from homemade foods. What a game-changer.

When it comes to flavor preferences, chocolate is a bit like wine; some prefer a bold red over a delicate white, just as chocolate lovers may favor bitter-sweet dark chocolate over the creamier, sweeter milk chocolate. Ultimately, it’s nice to have lots of choices so that you can suit your own taste and have room to experiment. RED chocolate, makers of delectable low sugar chocolate bars, understand what variety is all about.

In our previous review of RED Chocolate, we revealed how RED is sweetened exclusively with zero-calorie, plant-based Stevia and naturally-occurring melon sugars, giving it an amazing taste and texture, with a reduced amount of fat. Thanks to the absence of processed sugar, RED’s dark chocolate varieties contain up to 50% fewer calories, while Red’s milk chocolate bars’ calorie count is reduced by up to 35%. Now, RED has introduced a new variety – BLONDE Caramelized White Chocolate — that upholds the brand’s commitment to zero-percent added sugar, high quality ingredients and fabulously indulgent flavor. Just wait until you taste it!

OK, summer is officially here, yay! For folks living in regions where summer only lasts three months (that is, anywhere besides California or Florida), it’s time to enjoy being outside in the sun as much as possible! Yes, the sun is awesome, but everyone, regardless of skin tone, needs a degree of sun-protection. If you are like me and have a super-fair Scandinavian complexion, sun-bathing and long beach-days are not on the table.
