I was very skeptical when I saw this in my local health food store. How could a product made with cashews and pea protein be any good? In one word, this product is amazing. It's also vegan, organic, keto, dairy-free, egg-free, gluten and soy free as well. I couldn't get a decent picture of the label because the print is so tiny you can barely read it, so I took this information from the bhu foods website:

I recognize all of the ingredients except "organic baobab." Here is a very informative website. Baobab certainly does appear, by all accounts, to be a "superfood." https://nuts.com/healthy-eating/benefits-of-baobab I am puzzled by the serving size referring to a "cookie" as a serving size. This is cookie dough, you're not supposed to actually bake it, am I right?! Yes, I ate it out of the container.
It might be obvious to some that this product is aimed at the keto and low-carb crowd; however, if you have a sweet tooth and enjoy your chocolate, this is definitely a healthier option than a candy bar or a tube of "regular" cookie dough. The only negative thing I have to say about this product is its price. The 10 ounce tub is a whopping $14.99. I have managed to show some restraint and have made a tub last for at least two weeks just because I can't afford to shell out what could be up to $60.00 per month (one tub per week) for a cookie dough addiction. It's a fine "sometimes" treat for me.
Like natural peanut butter, the oil tends to separate, so if you can, it's helpful to stir it around somewhat or you will end up eating some dry chunks and some very oily chunks. I prefer some consistency, so I mixed it a bit. Don't refrigerate it.
I very highly recommend this product and hope that I can find it on sale somewhere sometime soon!
