Dara's Raw Balls

Finding snack foods that are actually good for you just got a little easier thanks to Simply Dara, a family owned and operated company in Boulder, Colorado.

Created and founded by Dara (pronounced Day-rah) Haid, who came up with tantalizing recipe combinations that wowed her family, friends, and acquaintances, Dara knew she had something very special to share with the world−real food that tasted great and was good for you. Her delicious, nutrient dense vegan raw treats are something that you’ll definitely want to have on hand when you’re looking for a satiating and tasty snack, dessert, or anytime treat.

At first glance, I didn’t expect the Simply Dara Raw Balls to be so hearty and filling, but I quickly found out just how satisfying they were. I became delightfully satiated after eating only two! My body got the “I’m happy now” signal fairly quickly because it recognized the nutrient dense ingredients−it knows quality food!

Simply Dara Raw Balls are available in 4 unique flavors that are sure to appeal to everyone: Apricot oat, Cranberry Almond, Dark Chocolate Chile, and Original Cacao (my personal favorite). All are Non-GMO Project Verified, contain 99% organic ingredients, are gluten-free, peanut-free, soy-free, and have no refined sugars, additives, preservatives, or oils. Check out their awesome ingredients here.

Not many companies today can boast that they have 100% sustainable packaging, which is just one of the many reasons that Simply Dara Raw Balls hit a home run when it comes to doing their part to help our environment. Each ball is individually wrapped in a BPI Certified compostable, wood cellulose film that will compost in a back yard compost in 12 weeks. Along with being made from post-consumer waste, their boxes are 100% recyclable and printed in a zero waste facility using vegetable inks.

I offered Simply Dara Raw Balls to my guests as a dessert treat and received numerous compliments. Everyone wanted to know how long it took me to make the delicious balls, but I couldn’t take the credit−it deservedly went to Simply Dara, a great family business with a commitment to things that matter. Thanks Dara!
