Video Blog – Raw Strawberry Twizzlers

Now. I have a confession to make. Does anyone remember those Wonka Strawberry Twizzlers?? I do. I was obsessed and could eat hundreds in one sitting. Especially when I was a professional dancer back in the day. I cringe at the amount of crap I was putting into my body. 

Here’s a healthier spin on them! YAY! They still contain sugar from the dates obviously but it’s a lot better than the chemicals in the other stuff.
