Raw, Vegan Snack Cookie Giveaway! Win a 12 Pack of Rawxies Today.
September 13, 2012

Rawxies

Glad you guys enjoyed the roasted garlic and hemp kale chips! Using hemp and chia opens up so many new possibilities for this tried-and-true snack; I can’t wait to come up with new combinations.

I promised you a week full of product reviews, and today, I’m making good on this promise with yet another feature of an outstanding vegan business and snack line: Rawxies.

Rawxies really need no introduction from me. These cookies/snacks were developed by the wonderful Callie England, a high raw vegan blogger who decided, only a year into blogging, to show people how easy and delicious it could be to enjoy more raw, plant-based food. I like Callie’s sensible approach to nutrition, which was clearly hard won. She sums it up in this statement:

“In today’s world, figuring out what is ‘healthy’ can be quite the task. Everyday we are forced to listen to contrasting view points on what is and what isn’t healthy – it’s exhausting, I know! However, one thing I believe we can all agree on, is what’s not good for us. In fact, it’s not so much what you put in your body, as opposed to what you don’t put in your body. I’ve spent the past 7 years of my life studying and testing different theories – low carb, low fat – you name it, I’ve done it.

Then one day, I stumbled across a simple idea of eating more raw fruits and vegetables- and, eliminating all processed foods. It was like someone flipped a switch and what I had been searching for all those years (optimal health), I had found! …

Rawxies are my way of sharing with the world what whole foods have done for me. I want everyone to experience their many benefits! After all, we all deserve the right to live healthy and happy lives! And, provide that for our loved ones – i.e., parents, children, friends, etc… ”

Some time ago, Callie sent me a sampler of Rawxies. I’ve waited to post about them until I could offer them to you all, giveaway style, but it was hard to contain myself! They are fantastic. The flavors are distinctive, they’re not too sweet, and they have a faint hint of sea salt. As any baker knows, a little salt is key to ideal sweets!

I got to taste all of the flavors: banana nut bread, cranberry pecan, mint chocolate chip, lemon poppyseed, chocolate cacao nib, and cinnamon walnut raisin. Though chocolate cacao nib and lemon poppyseed were probably my top picks, I was surprised at how much I adored all of the flavors—even the mint chocolate chip, which isn’t a combo I usually love. These cookies are seriously fantastic, and I love that they’re low enough in sugar to double up as suitable afternoon snacks! Plus, they’re 100% gluten free (and all vegan, of course).

If you check the website out, you might also see Callie’s adorable signature “stop eating crap” t-shirt. I was lucky enough to get one of those, too!

Cheeky and stylish: just like Callie and her brand!

You can find Rawxies online, at Organic Avenue if you happen to be in NYC, or at any of the boutiques mentioned on the Rawxies website. You can also find the t-shirt at a great discount at Vegan Cuts! Or, if you want to sample a twelve pack of Rawxies and get a free t-shirt, you can enter today’s giveaway.

That’s right! Callie is generously offering 1 lucky CR reader two sampler packs of Rawxies (6 flavors per pack) and a “stop eating crap” t-shirt in your size.

  1. I want to try the chocolate mint! I’m a health nut and down to try new snacks all the time. I live in New Orleans,LA which really doesnt have an array of healthy restaurants and grocery stores. I entered the contest with all 7 actions! Hopefully I win XD

  2. I’d love to try the chocolate mint. I’m new to the RAW world and am anxious try most everything!

  3. They all sound so amazing. I am most excited about the Lemon Poppyseed though. I like to reminisce about poppyseed muffins.

  4. OMG why do I live in Holland? We’re so far from all the good stuff (except for homemade goodies 😉
    Would love to try Cranberry pecan and see if I can persuade my favourite healthstore here to start importing those by sharing a bite (well… only one 😉
    Love the heartshape too!

  5. Hi
    the flavor I’m most excited to try is the lemon poppyseed. I use to love that flavor muffin and haven’t tried any healthly versions of it yet.
    thanks

  6. Thanks for reviewing these! I had seen their awesome shirt on vegan cuts, but haven’t seen their food locally so I wasn’t familiar with them. I LOVE mint-chocolate, so I am excited to try that one!

    I liked rawxies on FB…

  7. Banana nut bread! Oh, that sounds absolutely delicious! And the cranberry pecan…and the chocolate mint…. They all sound wonderful!

  8. Mmmm, Lemon poppy seed reminds me of a cake my mom used to make when I was a kid. Love that flavour combination!

  9. I would love to try the mint chocolate flavour. I’ve never seen Rawxy’s in Canada – although I have tried some of the beautiful recipes from Callie’s blog.

  10. Mmm I’m a big sucker for anything with cranberries or pecans in it… so cranberry pecan it is!

  11. I’m an over achiever…I did them all! Like, tweet, like, tweet, pin, tweet! I’m addicted to anything lemon, so I’m most excited to try the Lemon Poppyseed! And I want that shirt! As a constant reminder to leave the crap alone…I NEED this shirt!

    PS Thank you for writing such a lovely blog!

  12. I’m excited to try the chocolate cacao nib.. I really like the t-shirt also, and the heart shapes of the cookies are really cute!

  13. 1. Leave a comment on this post, letting me know which flavor of Rawxies you’re most excited to try!
    The cacao nib one! I really want the shirt!!!

  14. I am most excited to try lemon poppyseed…tho it was hard to pick just one flavor, they all sound so good!! And I’ve been in love with that tee since I recently saw it on Vegan Cuts! 🙂

  15. I like Rawxies of FB and I pinned this giveaway 🙂

    I am most excited to try the mint chocolate chip (always a favorite flavor combo for me) or maybe the lemon poppyseed. They all sound delicious though.

  16. Of all the flavors, I think I’m most excited to try banana nut bread. I don’t think you can go wrong with that one.

  17. I’m really tied between banana nut and mint chocolate! I’ve never gotten to have mint chocolate in a food bar before, so I’ll go with that.

  18. The banana nut bread sounds like the perfect nomm snack! I’d love to try that one out. I’ve found banana snack bars can go either way.

  19. Without a doubt – lemon poppyseed! You don’t see that flavor in bars as much! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  20. Mmm, the cinnamon walnut raisin one! But they all look so good. I could never get sick of bars… they are a major vegan food group for me, along with hummus!
    Already following on twitter 🙂

  21. I already like you on Facebook! 🙂 I would be super excited to try all the flavors, but the Banana Nut Bread sounds particularly yummy at the moment.

  22. They all sound amazing…but since I add cranberries and pecans to practically everything (salads, oatmeal, etc.), I’ll go with cranberry pecan!

  23. I’m really excited to try the cranberry pecan flavor because it reminds me of the winter which I love because the snow can be so beautiful when it first falls on the trees.

  24. Its a tough choice but I would love to try the Mint Choc-chip flavour…or maybe Cranberry Pecan…or Chocolate Cacao Nib. They all sound amazing!
    Clearly I’m way to indecisive for this question.

  25. Cranberry Pecan and Chocolate Cacao Nibs sounds divine! Would love to have those!! Sad to say, I don’t have FB, Twits or Pines, too much social media for me 🙁

  26. I’m excited to try the lemon poppyseed flavour of Rawxies. I love that combination and don’t seem to find it often in raw treats. But after your glowing review, I’m keen to try all of them.

  27. I did all the above except fir pintrest because I don’t have it. I am a huge lover and of raw foods and LOVE being in my kitchen coming in with my own recipes. Since starting college this year it’s been hard for me to get in the kitchen as much as I like 🙁 then I saw this awesome giveaway and thought it is absolutely perfect for a gal like me!! 🙂 I have to say I am excited for ALL the flavours!!! I can never pick just one as each flavor is so unique and different <3 really hope I win so I can enjoy them all!! 🙂

  28. All the flavors sound delicious but if I have to choose just one I would have to say chocolate cacao nib. To have a guilty pleasure minus the guilt. Sounds good to me.

  29. Is it wrong that what really sold me is that they’re heart-shaped? Adorable. 😛 I’m looking forward to trying the mint chocolate chip.

  30. Chocolate cacao nibs sound awesome!! As a mom, wife, and student, you can imagine how much I would love to win and try these! They do sound amaaaazing!!

  31. I like you both on facebook. I am excited to try these. I’ve always eaten “clean” but about 4 mo ago I turned 100% raw vegan. I was hospitalized for throwing a blood clot and having a TIA (mini stroke) after fertility treatments and 2.5 years of trying. In hospital, I was diagnosed with an auto immune disease that causes me to throw blood clots. My blood cells were attacking my own blood Cells and the protein around my platelets. I was really sick and they wanted me on steroids for life in addition to the blood thinners I’m on. I asked them for one month of getting the inflammation down without meds, no meat, dairy, caffeine, wheat, gluten and to juice 3 times a day to see how my body responded. Needless to say, my blood count improved, liver and kidney function improved and I was able to heal myself with zero steroids. It’s amazing how food can give you an ailment and take an ailment away! Since this is all new to me, I’m definitely excited to try this. Thanks for introducing rawxies to me. Excited to try them all!

  32. Lemon Poppy and Cranberry Pecan … this is the hardest challenge for me is finding healthy snacks.

  33. All of the flavors sound fantastic, but I’d be most excited to try the chocolate cacao nib. Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! 🙂

  34. I want to try the mint chocolate chip, please! Thank you for offering this terrific give-away 🙂

  35. Her journey resonated with me because I went through the same thing when i was trying to figure out what was healthy and right for my body. And you had me at lemon poppyseed–my absolute favorite of all time!

    Thanks Gena!

  36. Yum! I think the Banana Nut is right up my alley and would make a perfect “middle of the night and I have to pee so I should grab another snack” snack. TMI? Sorry. Banana Nut.

  37. I am so happy to know that there is finally a vegan snack that I can grab while I’m at work. I get so busy, and there’s barely time for lunch, and the banana nut bread Rawxie sounds perfect.

  38. I already LOVE Choosing Raw on FB and all the Rawxie flavors sound delicious but if I had to choose it would be the mint chocolate! YUM!!!

  39. oh wow they look so lovely and would be a great present to valentine’s day! I would love to try the cinnamon walnut raisin one:)

  40. I’ve tried banana nut, lemon poppyseed, cinnamon Rawxies and they are good, BUT…
    no bang for the buck. small size/big calorie count and the sodium in each
    cookie…HUGE. ugh.

  41. Wowza, I need those handy snacks in my belly! I’m a busy single Mom and full-time student, so something like this is perfect for me (and my tots). All the flavors sound divine, but I’m most intrigued by the lemon poppyseed one!

  42. I would love to try the lemon poppyseed Rawxy! And the shirt! It’s too much. Thanks for the chance to win! 🙂

  43. I think the cranberry pecan sound amazing. I am new around here, thank you for all you do, you and others like you are helping me get started on a raw diet. Not 100% yet but doing a ton to up my veggie and fruit intake. Thanks!

  44. Lemon Poppyseed sounds very spring-ish, so since we are headed into fall, I think I’m most excited about the mint chocolate chip. They all sound amazing!

  45. I liked Rawxies on Facebook. I would love to rawk one of the t-shirts walking down a street of my town. The treats seam like novel delights. I can hardly wait to try them.

  46. OMG I want to try them ALL! But if I have to choose (life is rough isn’t it? tough decisions) I’ll go with the CACAO 🙂 Dear Rawxies, THANK YOU also for not drowning your ingredients list in agave and cashews like most other raw vegan cookies. And gluten-free to boot? I think I love you. (and if you tell me you ship internationally I will REALLY love you.) Gena, thank YOU for this great find! Can I live in your mailbox for a day?

  47. I am most looking forward to try banana nut bread, even thinking about it is making me hungry!
    I would really like to start my ED revcovery with a box of rawxies and an amazingly cute t-shirt to go with it 😉

    p.s love your site by the way has been very inspiration helped lots starting my recovery.

  48. all of the flavors look so good but i think i would really love banana nut and cinnamon walnut raisin! so good! hope i win!

  49. Oh, the chocolate cacao nib sounds great!

    It’s funny, I was never a chocolate fan until I discovered raw chocolate (i.e., crap-free chocolate!).

  50. Chocolate Cacao Nib PLEASE!!! Any excuse to eat healthy chocolate!!! They are so cute too- I love the heart-shape!! What a cute idea!! We might as well eat LOVE!!! I can’t wait try these delicious treats I can feel good about~ they all sound delish & the shirt’s SO cute!!! 🙂

  51. Just liked Rawxies on Facebook, followed on Twitter and pinned my first pin on Pinterest…lol. I’m on there all the time, but I never add my own stuff! These would be great when I’m on the go around my college campus! 😉

    Thank you !

  53. I would have to say Banana Nut Bread for sure! Although it’s almost impossible to choose as they all sound scrumptious!

  54. These look wonderful! I’d especially like to try chocolate cacao nib. I just started grad school and now I need filling snacks all the time!

  55. All of those sound amazing! I am most excited about the cinnamon walnut raisin nom nom 🙂 I am a full time student studying Nutrition Science while working part time as well so on the go vegan snacks make me happy! I am pinning this giveaway along with the many other pins from your blog that I obsessively follow<3

  56. I am doing all #1-6, and was already liking Choosing Raw on FB. They all sound good, but my top two would have to be Lemon Poppyseed and Chocolate Cacao Nib. I’d love that shirt too! I need on the go raw snacks, when I don’t have time to dehydrate my own snacks. I am trying to cure my diabetes with mostly raw foods. What’s the glycemic load on these bars?

  57. Wow this is a really cool product! And I would love to try the Mint Chocolate Chip! That sounds really good.

  58. The lemon poppyseed sounds so fun especially since I don’t have the muffins I grew up with anymore!

  59. I also liked Choosing Raw on FB! Your page, blog, website..etc. is ridiculously addicting!

  60. Banana Nut Bread or Lemon Poppyseed sound the most fantastic to me 🙂 I LOVE lemon poppyseed scones when can get my hands on them.

  61. I will definitely be checking out this brand at Organic Avenue in NY. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I always scan their items but ultimately their price point, makes me just skip to the juices since that’s what I’m there for. But I love healthy bars and with all the travelling I’m doing these days, I need simple, quick snacks to tide me over….especially when I’m stuck in a place where vegan eats aren’t plentiful.

  62. All these flavors look amazing but I would definitely love to try the chocolate cacao nib!

  63. I would love to try the lemon poppy seed rawxies. I’m trying to hold on to those refreshing summer flavors as long as I possibly can before embracing fall!

  64. Probably most excited for cranberry-pecan because they are fall flavors (along with pumpkin) that I look forward to all year!

  65. Ok, that shirt is awesome.

    I’m sure I could demolish all of the flavors, but the banana nut bread sounds especially delicious!

  66. Oh, and I think I’m most excited to try banana nut bread, lemon poppyseed and chocolate cacoa nib. Though they all look delicious.

  67. Well, I’d already liked you on facebook. But I just liked Rawxies too. (I found Choosing Raw a couple of weeks ago and I love the site. Thank you so much for it!)

  68. I am already sold on the cute packaging and heart shapes! Plus I love the t-shirt! My fav flavors would be the cranberry pecan and the cacao chocolate! Yum!!!!

  69. I already know that I LOVE Rawxies. I purchased a box on Vegan Cuts a couple months ago. Although I’m a chocoholic, I LOVE the lemon poppy seed. They remind me of those unhealthy lemon poppyseed muffins I used to eat in college. At the time I didn’t know any better, and thought muffins were healthy! Happy to find something raw, vegan, gluten free as an awesome replacement.

  70. Hi there, I have like Rawxies on FB and pinned this. I would love to try these and totally want the t-shirt. Thank you!

  71. Definitely super excited for mint chocolate chip! I hope i win i want to try these so bad! Be perfect for before track snack! 😀
