It’s no secret that I’m not a huge fan of store bought treats, between my baking business, my love of the kitchen and my disdain for the crap found in most foods I rarely if ever purchase store bought/pre-made snacks. I do my very best in fact to avoid them, however…
While this normally works out for us just fine, there are times we run into a problem. Mostly when we are on the road for a long period of time and I’ve run out of my home made snacks. I’m constantly on the look out for a snack that we can purchase when we are away or to have as a “just in case”. They need to have ingredients I can feel good about, not too much sugar, a reasonable amount of calories and be something the kids will enjoy.
So you can imagine how happy we were to discover Nature Valley & Fibre 1 have been working on snacks to meet that exact criteria. Then how excited I was when I was given the opportunity to try out a few of those new snacks!
We tried the new:
Nature Valley Granola Thins – Granola Squares that have been toasted for extra crunch with a thin layer of chocolate on the bottom and only 90 calories a bar. (Also available in Peanut Butter)
Fibre 1 Brownies – We tried the Chocolatey Fudge (also comes in Chocolate Peanut Butter) and 110 calories.
Fibre 1 Chocolate Caramel & Pretzel Bars – These bars have 20% of your daily fibre needs covered with a sweet/salty flavour and only 100 calories.
The girls liked them all! This is a feet not easily accomplished with two girls who are very picky! All the snacks are under 120 calories and make a good “in a pinch” food option that you don’t have to feel guilty about.
