Things I Love Thursday- Snacktrition July 2, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — thediaperdiaries @ 9:58 pm

  I am a snack moron. I know I should eat healthy ones, but somehow just grabbing some highly processed something or other always seems easier. That’s why I love it when someone makes it easy for me. And the people at Snacktrition have done exactly that. Healthy, portable, easy to eat, kid friendly. What more can you ask for?

Snacktrition has created a line of nuts and dried fruit snacks that they have added calcium and fiber too. In this house we can always stand a little more of each of those. Depending on the snack you chose it will either be packed with 3 grams of fiber or more than 100 grams of calcium which translates to 12 percent of your recommended fiber and 10 percent of your recommended calcium intake. Not bad for a handful of nuts.

So that’s what they asked me to tell you, but what do I really think? I really liked them!! I tried the smoked almonds (delicious), the sea salt cashews (not too salty, but just salty enough-they also have salt and pepper cashews which sound awesome), and my personal favorite, the fruit and nut mix (perfect blend of sweet and salty). They come in little bags which are the perfect size for taking on the go, but watch your portions cause nuts are high in fat (but the good kind) and before you know it, you’ve downed the whole thing in 3 seconds.

Here is the slight bummer, these babies might be hard to find right now, but you can check out their website for possible locations. I have a small amount of the fruit and nut mix left that I may be willing to share for some sort of bribe. Gotta be something good though cause we are running pretty low on food around here. Plus our phone and internet seem to have gone out with this storm and I am going to have nothing to do for the next few days but eat to fight off the shakes I will get from internet withdrawl.

Wanna tell us what you love? Sign up with Mr. Linky below and check out these rules to play (which are really just there so I can feel like I make some rules that someone, somewhere follows).

  1. I’m not gonna post about it… but I just tried Jet Dry for the first time ever this week and LOVE IT! It makes a world of difference and now I’ll actually uploaded the dishwasher because I don’t have to waste all the time drying everything.

  2. Another tasty treat for us to try. Thanks for sharing!

    yeah, but are those snacks expensive? they look expensive. more expensive than a pear, anyway. that’s my snack budget: the cost of a pear.
