Total Basset Case: I Like to Eat

May 21, 2013

I Like to Eat

I mentioned recently how much Floyd likes to eat and you know that I sure do as well.
Well I've found some gems at the grocery lately and thought I should share them with you.
I would never want you guys to be in the dark about delicious snacks out there.


Snack Time
1. Luna Bars: I literally can not stop eating these.  I dream about them as I am driving home from work every day.  I am usually starving by the time I get home and these really hit the spot.  I haven't found a version that I don't like yet but I think my favorites are the S'more or Vanilla Almond.  They are the perfect combination of sweet, salty and protein. They really hit the the spot to have before my afternoon work out.
2.  Chocolate Soy Milk: I didn't think that I would EVER like soy milk.  Well, I've proven myself wrong.  Now, almond milk I can't really jump on board with but soy milk, that I can handle.  More specifically, chocolate soy milk.  I think it tastes just as good as regular chocolate milk and is much better for you.  The vanilla isn't half bad either.  Both varieties are delicious in smoothies as well. 

3.   Boom Chicka Pop: This popcorn is SO good.  It's light, airy and not filled with junk.  And only 35 calories per cup, I mean, can you beat that?  I've been keeping a bag at work to fulfill my afternoon snack cravings. I've seen it at Target and a few other places.
4. Lucky Country Licorice: A friend gave me a bag of these delectable little treats to take on the plane.  Mister and I could not stop eating them.  By the end of the bag we were rationing them out.  They are different than typical licorice- chewier and fruitier.  Thank goodness Kroger carries them or else we'd be in withdrawals.  

5. Plantain Chips: Trader Joe's strikes again. I picked these up on a whim and can't stop eating them.  They are a perfect replacement for chips at lunch and SO much better for you.  I also recently had their 'Inner Peas' as well and they are also delicious.  But, really, is anything from Trader Joe's bad??

And that's that.
I like to eat.  #sorryimnotsorry
What have you been snacking on lately?

Noo!! Soy!!! Normally I would not comment on others' food choices because it's up to you! But there is a lot of info on the negative health impacts of soy (specifically GMO soy used in so many American products)... a lot of info on it impacting fertility too. just thought you might want to read up on it - here is one article bu there are many more. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/09/18/soy-can-damage-your-health.aspx

I think it is impossible for TJ's to make anything bad! I will need to get my paws on those plantain chips!

Chelsea Edwards said...

Those plantain chips are my favorite TJ's snack. I have to stop myself from buying them too often because they're gone in like 2 days!

Ugh I hate not living near a TJ's!! We were right across the street from one in Brooklyn (& there's one in my hometown, too). Also, I need to try that Boom Chika Pop!

I've been on a Luna Bar kick lately too. Sooo delish. I like the pretzel one... except I can't think of the technical name for it... haha.

Ashley said...

I need to try Luna Bars...I keep hearing they're so good, and really need to start snacking better.

Boom chicka pop is so freaking good and I'm a professional popcorn eater so I should know. It's a little expensive but so worth it

Sami said...

That soft and chewy licorice is the best thing ever ever. My favorite is from World Market because it's Pineapple flavor. SO GOOD.

Jill said...

I want to try that popcorn for sure, and those two Luna Bar flavors. My favorite is the Chocolate Coconut! :)

Candice Williams said...

I've never had Luna bars but I really like zone perfect bars. The chocolate caramel pecan bars and the salted caramel pretzels are the best.

Those licorice bites sounds amazing. I will have to try them. I have such a sweet tooth for licorice.

I only like soy milk in my Starbucks vanilla lattes haha

Rachel said...

Yum, that sea salt popcorn sounds delicious! I'll have to try it. :)

Miss Monica said...

Hey I am stopping by. Saw you on Married with a Pup's Page. Thought I would say hi. I will have to try this Chicka Boom Popcorn. Sounds better than my extra butter Act II Secret Popcorn. My favorite snack is apple with honey peanut butter.

Jessica @ CarpeTheSangria said...

You should try chocolate Zico coconut water!! I think you'd like it! Now, if you could figure out how to homemade popcorn that tastes as good as Boom Chicka Pop I would really appreciate it...and so would my grocery bill haha.

I just got hooked on Luna bars too! I love the Smores but white macadamia nut is my FAVE!! Boom chicka pop is a fave of ours too- we always grab some at Jungle Jims!
