Hail Merry Mama Lunches

Tuesday, 11/13/12 - When Hail Merry offered to send me some of their all-natural treats to try, I said I'd love to. Anything but macaroons. I don't really like the taste or texture of macaroons... 
They sent me macaroons. Haha!

But boy, am I glad they did! They have a much creamier texture than the macaroons I've had before. The chocolate ones were almost like fudge! Little Z hasn't liked macaroons in the past either. But she loved the one I let her and Baby try... The rest are MINE! So I've been packing them as a treat in my lunches.

Mama {Hearts} Hail Merry Macaroons!
Frozen guacamole, golden beet, Hail Merry Salted Caramel and Strawberry Macaroons,
salad w/carrots, golden beet, purple cauliflower, dried blueberries and edamame, dressing
This was my first time attempting to freeze guacamole. I used a heart-shaped ice cube tray, just for fun. Plus I don't really have a "regular" shaped one! 
The guacamole cubes thawed by lunchtime, but had turned brown. It was fine for me, 'cuz I got my big girl panties on and they tasted normal. But I don't think brown guacamole would fly with Little Miss Pickypants. Too bad. Frozen guacamole shapes would have been a fun addition to our lunch repertoire. 

My macaroons came out juuuuuuust fine though!

All Hail Merry products are gluten-free, non-GMO, artificial-free, and vegan! You can order online, or find them at a store near you!

Mama's Snowflake Salad
Hail Merry Chocolate and Strawberry Macaroons, cheese and crackers, spinach and lettuce salad w/
kohlrabi, carrots, broccoli, purple cauliflower, sunflower seeds, dried blueberries
You can read more about my snowflake salad here. I just love not only how adorable the macaroons look in my lunch, but they were the perfect guilt-free sweet treat! Only 4 grams of fat and 2 grams of sugar each, plus 1 gram of fiber as a nice bonus!

Disclaimer: Hail Merry sent me samples of their unreleased Strawberry and Salted Caramel Macaroon flavors, and a bag of their Chocolate Macaroons.


  1. Love your beautiful colorful salads!! Yum! Thanks for linking up to Meatless Monday!

  2. A little bit of lemon juice would probably keep your guac from turning brown. (Or lime!)


Go ahead! Tell me how awesome I am. Or ask a question. Whatever.
