Fun Finds Friday: Snack Edition!!…

Posted Jan 18 2013 7:05am

Hi there!  Happy Friday to you!  What are you doing this weekend?  I don’t have too much planned.  I’m hoping to relax and that we can finish hanging up our wedding pictures in our house.  That is pretty much it.  I’ve been really tired lately so I would definitely like some time to sleep in.  Although sleeping in for me is like 7am.  I usually get up at 5am on the weekdays so I guess getting up at 7 is sleeping in?  I don’t know.  I wish I could sleep later.  Hopefully I will be able to this weekend.  I saw snow flurries when driving into work this morning!  It was such a tease though.  Like I keep saying, I would like at least one nice blizzard this winter.  That would make me a happy girl.

So today is Friday and is time for another edition of Fun Finds Friday!  I have mentioned previously, just because I am mentioning some items does not mean that I have tried these items.  If I have tried them, I will definitely let you know what I think.  Otherwise, these are just new items that I have spotted that I think look interesting and think that all of you might be interested in trying.  Let’s begin!

First up is Fiber One Protein Bars!

Fiber One has come out with their own line of Protein Bars.  These bars come in the following flavors: Caramel Nut, and Coconut Almond.  I think the Coconut Almond one is the most appealing one to me.  The Caramel Nut Protein Bar contains 130 calories, 7 grams of protein, and 20% daily value of fiber.  The Coconut Almond Protein Bar has 140 calories, 6 grams of protein, and 20% daily value of fiber.  These are a great item to take on the go with you.

Fiber One has also come out with a Chewy Bar line.

These chewy bars come in Strawberry PB & J, and Chocolate.  They both contain 20% of daily value of fiber and 10% daily value of calcium.

Next up are Special K Pastry Crisps !

Special K had some flavors of the Pastry Crisps already out but they introduced three new flavors: Chocolatey Delight, Brown Sugar Cinnamon and Berry Strussel.  I think all of the flavors sound  amazing and 10 pastry crisps come in a box!  They are all only 100 calories for two crisps!  I think this is a perfect snack to take with you on the go or even bring with you when traveling.  There are twoother flavors to choose from: Strawberry and Blueberry.  I definitely want to try these!

Another item up from Special K is their Brownie Bites !

These brownies come in two flavors: Blonde and Fudge.  They Blonde Brownie Bites are 100 calories a package and the Fudge Brownie Bites are 110 calories a package.  They are perfect for an evening snack or an afternoon pick me up.  I am a huge fan of brownies so I can only imagine how amazing they taste!  I know that I will be buying these in my future shopping trips.

PopTarts Oatmeal Delights !

These new Oatmeal Delights come in two flavors: Mapley Brown Sugar and Strawberry.   These two poptarts are made with oatmeal and whole grains.  So they are healthier than regular poptarts and might be a healthier option to choose from on the go.  They still contain the same amount of calories as regular poptarts, 200 calories a poptart.  It might be something healthier though to choose from if you love poptarts.  I picked up a box of these for Mike but he hasn’t tried them yet.  I think he is actually trying them today.  I hope he likes them.  They look good!

Earth Balance Popcorn, Puffs, and P.B. Popps!

It’s no surprise that I am a huge fan of Earth Balance products.  I use their “butter” ALL the time and have been using it for over a year now.  I love it!  I love that it’s dairy free.  So any time I see anything new from this company I know I want to try it!  Especially their brand new snack line!  Earth Balance has come out with popcorn, puffs and P.B. Popps!  I’ll tell you a little more about it.

The Popcorn comes in two flavors: Vegan Buttery Flavor Popcorn and Vegan Aged White Cheddar Popcorn.  The Popcorn is vegan, gluten-free, made with Expeller-Pressed Oil, Non-GMO, 100% Natural, and 0 Trans Fat.  The Puffs are Vegan Aged White Cheddar.  The P.B. Popps are popcorn coated in peanut butter and a bustle of oats!  They are also vegan, dairy-free and all of the other ingredients that I mentioned earlier.  I love the fact that these snack products are vegan and dairy-free!  It makes me extremely excited to try these!  I cannot wait to find them in the store.

Van’s Natural Snack Bars !

The company Van’s is best known for their waffles and french toast sticks.  Well they have recently started making a few other products and these Snack Bars are one of them!  They come in three flavors: Peanut Butter Chocolate, Chocolate Chip, and Cranberry Almond.  They are chewy, whole-grain and gluten-free.  These bars have between 150-160 calories in them.  They are great for on the go!

Van’s Natural Crackers !

Van’s has also come out with a line of crackers!!  They come in: Lots of Everything, Multigrain and Say Cheese!  These three crackers are also gluten-free.  The Lots of Everything Crackers contain:  oats, brown rice, millet, quinoa and amaranth and 16g of crunchy whole grains.  The Multigrain crackers contain: 16g of whole grains including oats, quinoa and amaranth.  The Say Cheese crackers contain: 16 grams of whole grains.  I looked into the ingredients list and milk is listed.  So be careful if you have issues with milk.  You might want to avoid these crackers.

So there you have it!  Some new snack products that I have heard about and really want to try!  Have you heard of any of these or tried any?  Which would you most want to try?

Have a great Friday and weekend!
