Hope you all are enjoying your Monday whatever it is your doing! Do you have anything big planned for the week? I am headed to the one and only Mall of America again to do a little back-to-college shopping. (Ok, that may or may not be an excuse to go on a little road trip & spend money!) So Wednesday and Thursday I probably will not be making an appearance here! But, Friday expect some fun pictures and some yummy eats! (I never knew so much food could exist under one roof—the possibilities are literally endless!)
Today I decided was a good day to review some cheese-themed things. As I mentioned a couple times before, I am not a huge cheese fan—I will never eat just plain cheese like some people do, and I am limited to the “white” cheeses because I can’t handle the taste of cheddar—crazy I know! But it’s a good thing I like cheddar flavored foods. Are you following me? Ha-ha! What foods/food can’t you stand? Anyways, this first snack has been a snack favorite of mine for a couple years now and is made by my beloved Quaker man. [I know all ya oat lovin’ folks out there know who I am talking about ;-)] Did you know he makes things beyond oats, and in this case I am talking about QUAKER Snack Mix in Baked Cheddar flavor.
Have you seen/tried this? If the answer is no, hopefully it’ll be a yes soon! It even has the Smart Choices check which means that it is part of a healthy diet! I like that it’s baked so your not left with greasy residue on your fingers, and I also love that it has such a variety of snacks all in one bag! The beloved Quaker Oatmeal Squares, Cheez-It type cheddar crackers, thin pretzel sticks, regular knotted pretzels, Chex-like cheddar cereal pieces, and baked bagel pieces with cheddar on them. You can usually find these anywhere—Wal-Mart, your local grocer, and they are even conveniently stocked at most gas stations!
And recently I was overjoyed when the awesome people over at Fiber Gourmet offered to send me their brand spankin’ new Lite Snack Crackers that come in two different flavors—how could I resist? So I awaited my box in the mail and when it arrived I dove right in. At first glance, you would swear this was a Cheez-it—well it sort of is minus all the bad-for-you stuff and add in a hefty dose of fiber—we’re talking 12 grams in every 80 calorie bag! And did I mention you get a whole lot of crackers!! Check it out!
I also got this flavor……
These had more of a subtle cheese flavor, not as much flavor as the other kind, but still super good—just depends what you’re feeling for. And check out the comparison to regular Cheez-its--->
Thanks again Fiber Gourmet!
