  • Sweet, Salty and Crunchy !
    on Sep 2, 2010
    New York is in melting mode yet another day, so snack shopping has been challenging. Just transporting a snack in this heat could change the whole dimension of one's  snack. Just to be on the safe side, I am going with Wheat Thins STIX, which I...

  • Not Raisins, Craisins!
    on Aug 29, 2010
    I am not a raisin fan, not in my cereal, not in my muffins or fruit salad either. Now, CRAISINS are another story. Craisins are sweet and sour at the same time. I will Craisin my yogurt, oatmeal or just as a stand alone snack.  They ar...
  • Crunchin the Day Away
    on Aug 27, 2010
     I had some time to kill before a friends party, so I decided to hunt for some new snacks. I came across a display for Delicious 19 Wheat Cakes in a well known supermarket. I have seen varieties of this type of snack but never knew what was in t...
    on Aug 25, 2010
    Interestingly enough, I bought these snacks for ONE DOLLAR. I really liked them or maybe I really just liked the price. I wasn't quite sure so I had one of my friends try them and she finished the bag! 140 calories per bag and they really tastes like...
  • Like Pumpkin Pie and Abs?
    on Aug 23, 2010
    Well, this bar is not exactly pumpkin pie, but if you like pumpkin pie you will love this bar. I am in love with all the Kashi bars and have tried most of their products except the cookies...(Do I need another cookie?) This bar has 120 calories and...

  • Being Kind
    on Aug 21, 2010
    I get lots of advice from people about losing weight, what I should eat and how I should do it. The fact is, what I do works for me and why fix whats not broken (yes, a cliche!). I will listen to suggestions, crazy or not so...

  • Running in the AM
    on Aug 18, 2010
    As I was running this morning, I was thinking about the pros to running in the morning. I came up with 3 good reasons:                1. You don't have to do it after work.    ...
  • Tuesdays Treat
    on Aug 17, 2010
    Pretzels are not a snack that I would normally go for. As I was snack sleuthing, I came across a brand I was not familiar with, though HK Anderson has been around since 1888.  I went for the Honey Wheat Braided Twists,  and my snack sense w...
  • In a Pinch...Try This...
    on Aug 16, 2010
    Today I was running late for work and did not have any snacks with me. Not to worry, I saw my favorite lunch spot Pret A Manger and thought, why not? I could buy a sandwich and eat half for my morning snack and half in the afternoon. The problem was,...

    Peanut Butter and Company sells this yummy peanut butter in single packs for those of us who prefer not to keeps jars of peanut butter in our reach. That definitely includes me! These single packs are 180 calories, so I had half a pack with one large...
  • Anybody for South Beach?
    on Aug 12, 2010
    Just when I thought they were gone and forgotten, South Beach Fiber Fit Bars show up at my local market. I think I may have done a little spin, I was so relieved. In case you forgot I put out an APB on these bars awhile back... To top it all off, a n...
  • Great Deal on PB and J!
    on Aug 11, 2010
    For all those Peanut Butter and Jelly fans, the Lara Bar is trip down memory lane. Although the "Lara" comes in many scrumptious flavors, the PB and J flavor was an absolute fav! The bar is 210 calories, so I recommend eating only half at a...

    This snack got the stamp of approval from the start when I saw the name. I knew...did you ever just know? Its made from real fruit, real yogurt, its vegetarian and wheat free. The bottom line is that its a high scorer all in all. Lotta Apricotta is...
