The official opening of September's Snackbox!
Discovering my plunder...
Snack 1 - Kind Dark Chocolate Cherry Cashew & Antioxidants bar. Very yummy folks! Definitely a hunger-curbing and sweet-tooth satisfying snack.
Snack 2 - Gimme Organic Seaweed Snack. I'm not going to lie. I thoroughly enjoy seaweed on my sushi and in my miso soup, but I was having a hard time wrapping my head around eating it as a snack on its own. When I finally worked up the courage to open the package, I was pleasantly surprised. The seaweed was dry roasted and lightly flavoured with sea salt. It was enjoyable and light. I wouldn't say it would curb your hunger on its own, but it would be a nice accompaniment with a snack. Plus, according to my boss, kids love it!
Snack 3 - Mary's Gone Crackers Chocolate Chip Cookie. These were nice. Personally I'm a fan of soft, gooey cookies straight out of the oven, but for store bought cookies these were enjoyable. Plus, I would have had no idea that they were gluten-free.
Snack 4 - Home Free Chocolate Chip Cookies. I found these to be very similar to Snack 3's cookies: good store-bought cookies, that I would have had no idea were gluten-free. I liked the fact that these cookies were bite-size.
Snack 5 - Brothers All Natural Pear Fruit Crisps. After last month's apple fruit crisps, I knew what texture to expect for the pear fruit crisps, and enjoyed them that much more as a result. Nice pear flavour, and a good light snack.
Snack 6 - Nature's Path Q'ia Superfood Cereal (Cranberry Vanilla). I quite enjoyed this cereal. It was very similar to Feed Your Life's homemade holy crap cereal (http://myloveoffood-shayne.blogspot.ca/2013/02/homemade-holy-crap-cereal-feed-life.html) but it became a bit more porridgy and had a really nice cranberry vanilla flavour to it. I'd definitely recommend mixing this cereal with milk or almond milk and not citrus water.
Snack 7 - Brookside Dark Chocolate Fruit. These acai and blueblerry flavoured nuggets of goodness completely rocked my world this month! Hands down the highlight of the month. I will most definitely be picking up some of these at the grocery store in the very near future.
Snack 8 - Rocketfood Apple Berry Oatmeal. I loved this snack as much this month as I did last month! Easy to transport, easy to make and fills my belly...definitely no complaints here. I did prefer last month's classic flavours to this month's but, that being said, I enjoyed both. This will definitely will be making it onto my grocery list sometime soon!
Snack 9 - Mediterranean Snacks Tapaz 2 Go. Lentil crackers, classic hummus, all in an easy to carry box that turns into a serving tray? Sold! Definitely a great snack to carry along for a hike or trip to the beach. Only word to the wise? You may want to bring a few more crackers to ensure you're able to use up all of that yummy hummus!
Snack 10 - Dan-D Pak Maca'damia nuts!!! I can't even tell you how excited I was to discover an entire container of macadamia nuts in September's Snackbox. Talk about a score! >ne of my favourite nuts of all time. Plus, who knew that they came in handy dandy individual containers like these? You go Dan-D Pak!
Snack 11 - Angie's Boom Chicka Pop. Literally the night before I received my Snackbox, I was over at a friend's for dinner and she was raving about this popcorn she'd just bought. Turns out it is all the rage right now. I thoroughly enjoyed it so, needless to say, I was a wee bit excited to discover an individual package in my Snackbox the next day! Definitely worth a try if you're in the market for some pre-made popcorn. And word on the street is that you can buy big bags at Costco for a fraction of the price!
