These are a great on – the – go snack that helps you enjoy more healthy fats as well as polyphenols like EGCG from matcha green tea, bergamot and Ceylon cinnamon. Another reason to love these snacks is if you want to get the benefits of green tea but you’re not ready to trade in your morning coffee! Savor 1 – 2 of these as a morning or afternoon snack to keep your energy up while simultaneously flooding your cells with healing constituents. Enjoy!
