Ever had meat imitation foods that just never really tasted or felt like the food they were supposed to replicate? Me too. Some like their meat imitations tasting and feeling like the actual meat while others actually prefer no sensation of meat whatsoever.
Chocolate and mint. Mint and chocolate. We’ve seen many variations of this pairing from Girl Scout thin mints, After Eight’s, and the iconic mint chocolate chip ice cream. This crowd-pleasing duo is served on any occasion since its bold taste is sweet enough for any season. It’s a classic combination that’s spanned generations and displays no decline in popularity.
free2B’s Dark Chocolate Mint Cups are exactly what you hope for when you combine these two distinct flavours. Its thick outer chocolate cup is devilishly dark and delivers a firm, crisp bite. Inside the cup is a dense, creamy layer of cool mint – a contrasting texture that makes this a harmonious combination. In my opinion, the best way to consume this treat is by allowing it to melt in your mouth to allow for a delightful transformation in texture.
To me, these Oven Baked Blueberry Bars just scream childhood. I can remember finding one of these in my lunch bag back in elementary school. Granted, the version I had were flattened and smooshed thanks to my lack of care, but they had looked like bars at some point.
Glutino makes these gluten free oven baked bars. While I only had the pleasure to try out the Blueberry flavour, there are also Apple Cinnamon and Strawberry choices, too!
Rice crackers: what a dread! Does anyone actually like them? Okay, maybe it’s just me, but I’ve always found them to be dryer than they should be. And on top of that, the flavours aren’t always the most authentic.
Microwave meals aren’t always the most appealing. It’s hard to find something that doesn’t have too much sodium, but isn’t bland from being frozen for so long. And if that isn’t struggle enough, then having the food look nice and tasty is another challenge, as well. Udi’s takes on this challenge with their Roasted Garlic Mac & Cheese.
While at first glance the quantity seems average, if not on the smaller side, but don’t let your eyes fool you. There’s plenty in this frozen meal that can make you feel satisfied, if not full.
I’ve always thought of waves as something to have with tea, or something more posh– something out of my accessibility. Definitely not the case, now that I’ve grown up and can provide for myself. These Milk Chocolate Wafers from Glutino are for everyone! One thing that I’ve always appreciated about Glutino is how the company can take snacks already available to the general public and make them accessible to those with gluten sensitivities.
Cereal: arguably many childhood mornings summarized in a nutshell. What came with that was also probably grains containing celiac and of course an insane amount of sugar. One Degree Organic Foods wants you to revisit this part of your younger days with a refreshed look on cereal.
There is just a plethora different drink mix choices from many different companies. Most, however, only offer one or two flavour choices. On top of that? They’ve got insane sugar content and a bunch of other additives that are just bad for you.
Ener-C has created a variety of drink mix flavours that appeal to the nutrition conscious consumer. With extreme amounts of Vitamin C, you won’t have to worry about packing an orange with you, if you’ve got one of their drink packets.
Did you know that snacking could lead to health and weight-loss benefits?! While there may be studies that claim otherwise, the results lead to positive benefits if you snack appropriately. I admit… I’m a constant snacker. I could snack all day and continue to consume three full meals. Although I’m a health-conscious eater, I can’t help but want to snack on chocolate, chips, and anything salty. Munching on carrots and celery sticks every day can get boring quickly, which is why I believe in maintaining a balanced diet of healthy foods and not-so-healthy-but-good-for-your-soul foods.[…]
