A delightful snack that can be enjoyed without the guilt is my favorite kind of snack! I give these Water Lily Pops an HIGH FIVE! BTW, Did you know that "Taalil" means high five in Hindi, which is the national language of the creators behind these delicious snacks! #ad
This is the Season of Wedding Showers, Baby Showers, or just fun summer gatherings. I added a bow and they are prefect treats for hosting a baby shower. The bright colorful packaging goes well with my place settings.
The "pops" would also be perfect to use for engagement showers or parties. "Popped the question." They are a delicious healthy alternative to traditional popcorns.
The Story behind the Delicious Treats:
Aarti and Aditya (creators of Taali) fell in love with water lily pops at a young age. The love for the snack followed them into college. The husband-and-wife team shared their ‘pop’ romance with their friends, classmates, and professors. They would "pop" them at home, pack them up and share the snacks on campus. This was the start of how this wonderful "SUPERFOOD" snack began.
Aarti and Aditya have worked hard to ensure the Taali supply chain is sustainable and the ingredients are 100% natural. Water lily pops are made from the seeds of an aquatic crop known as Euryale ferox (part of the water lily family).
The plant is found largely in Northern India and is an extremely important crop for the farmers of that region. Water lily seeds are a #SUPERFOOD and have a place of importance in the practice of Ayurveda due to their health benefits. Gluten Free, Non GMO, Contain 6-10g of Plant Protein, and no Artificial flavors are in these delicious pops.
Popped water lily seeds have been eaten in homes in India for hundreds of years. Also, also known as makhana, fox nuts, or lotus seeds. Taali ensures that their pops come directly from their farm to the customer. They work closely to make sure that the pops delivered to their customers are of the greatest quality.

Who doesn't love Chocolate?
However, make it dark chocolate to get some skin benefits!
Dark chocolate is my favorite! I use it in a variety of my cakes, cookies and my granola! The rich taste is so good! I love it plain as well!
If you like Dark Chocolate it is a #winwin for you! Do you know that cocoa has some pretty great effects on your skincare? Now you really have a reason to eat more chocolate! But, make sure it is the high antioxidant dark chocolate. Eating 20 grams of the high-antioxidant dark chocolate per day could allow your skin to withstand over twice as much UV radiation before burning versus eating low-antioxidant chocolate.
Participants in a recent study that consumed cocoa powder high in antioxidants each day, experienced thicker, more hydrated skin over a 6-12 week period. The skin was less rough, less sensitive to sunburn and had better blood flow.
Make sure to choose dark chocolate with at least 70% cocoa in order to maximize the benefits and keep added sugar to a minimum. Give it a try! The more you start eating dark chocolate, you might find yourself weaning off the fatty milk chocolate all together!
