Hello!! I hope everyone had a very merry Chrismukkah! I know we sure did – super low key and full of delicious food with family. Just the way I like it 🙂
I’m back with a quick round-up of some of my favorite products from this month. Let me know if you’ve found any awesome new snacks recently, I’m always looking to switch it up!
Lenny & Larry’s Complete Cookies – Guys. I’m obsessed with these. I ordered 2 boxes of them on Black Friday and was holding out until the new year to dig in…I can’t WAIT. My favorite flavor is probably the peanut butter, but the chocolate chip and snickerdoodle are awesome, too! A must – microwave them for 10-15 seconds. They’ll taste freshly baked.
Powdered Peanut Butter – Admittedly, I’m not super brand loyal on this one, primarily because I’m curious what they all taste like, but I’ve been addicted to adding this stuff to my oatmeal and plain greek yogurt. It’s got that yummy nut butter taste and protein, but way less calories and fat. Toss it in a smoothie for some extra flavor, too!
Trader Joe’s Chocolate Mint Black Tea & Candy Cane Green Tea – This is one of the aforementioned seasonal treats, sadly. But! If you can get your hands on a couple of these babies before TJ’s gets rid of them, DO IT. You can thank me later. The Chocolate Mint is unreal and tastes like a peppermint patty, especially with a splash of milk and some stevia. I think it’s new this year, but the Candy Cane I’ve been getting for the past few years. It’s my favorite. Again, splash of milk and touch of sweetness and you’ll think you’re having an actual candy cane…not to mention it’s decaf, so it makes for the perfect cup of tea before bed!
Iced Gingerbread Clif Bars – So I know Clif Bars sometimes get a bad rap for being super dense and kind of brick-like, but I will say that I absolutely love these when I need a heftier snack. My dad’s been bringing them with us when we go skiing for years because they’re great for longer workouts. The Gingerbread flavor was surprisingly tasty, too. I’ll be buying these again soon!
David Rio Chai Mix – For a last-minute impulse purchase at World Market, and just in general really, this stuff is awesome. You put 2 tablespoons in hot water and boom! Just as good as a Starbucks latte without the price tag and added sugar. Like the TJ’s tea, it’s also decaf and I’m pretty sure it’s only 60 calories (without the milk, which I highly recommend adding. I usually do about 20% milk, 80% hot water). If you’re at all like me and addicted to hot cocoa, you’ll love this mix when you need to switch it up!
Have a great week, y’all. Can’t believe it’ll be 2017 in just a few days!
