I don’t know about you guys, I LOVE SNACKS! More than that, I love healthy snacking! I would much rather eat snack food than a big meal!
There’s a new Hy-vee in town and I’m so dang excited! They have the BEST healthy snack foods and I’m going to share a few of my faves (and not so faves) with you! 🙂
So I will say, it is more expensive – just straight up. I won’t go to hyvee for regular groceries, Walmart is still my go to. But it’s fun to mix it up! Let’s go!
If you’re looking for a peanut butter Reece’s peanut butter cup replacement, this is not it. Are you looking for a nice treat as a pick me up and you love peanut butter and dark chocolate? Then YES! This is so good! With a low glycemic index, it won’t spike your blood sugar and make you hungry again in an hour. This was actually in the refrigerator section by the produce. I would give this an 8/10 – points docked because of the $1.99 price tag.
HOT DAMN! These are SO GOOD! I even went to meet Kelli after I ate these and she commented on how good they smell! These actually are a good replacement for chips. They are more fragile than like Doritos – that’s really the only difference but they are SUPER healthy – low carb, not much sugar, lots of protein and so much flavor! These are $2 a bag though which is sad but I WENT BACK AND BOUGHT 8 more bags today!! 🙂 I’d give this a 10/10 even if it is $2/bag.
I’ve ALMOST bought Halo Top ice cream SO MANY TIMES. I wish I would have bought it sooner! It is SO GOOD! Gannon even loves it! It needs to sit on the counter for a bit to thaw before you can eat it because of the low fat and low sugar content!anything with chocolate and peanut butter is pretty safe for me! This is a 10/10. I love it and will buy again!
I love chocolate chip cookie dough anything BUT This was my first NO. I’ve heard so much about Quest bars and I love the Quest chips but this is a no. The taste – not so bad. The texture? Like saltwater taffy. YUCK!
And finally, a delicious anti oxidant nut mix! Cranberries, walnuts, almonds, raisins, chocolate chips, SO GOOD!
That’s all I have for now! Have you tried any of these? What’s your favorite treat from the grocery store?
I would rather snack than eat a meal as well. I need to up my fiber hugely, get protein back into my diet and avoid nuts/seeds. Having diverticulitis sucks!! Wish that store was out west!
Hy Vee has some great meat prices and I think you should sign up for a card and get there coupons on line. It hard to beat Wal mart on paper product and cleaning supplies but Hy Vee is so comparable on other items.
