We've gotta be honest here. The thing that made us jump-up-and-down excited about these wafer cookies is their size. Imagine a steering wheel. OK, maybe not the steering wheel of your car, but rather a steering wheel of the bumper cars you drive at the local amusement park. That's how large these things are!!! And we're not sure about you, but whenever we see a sweet, crunchy treat that's huge and has just 90 calories, we FREAK OUT (in a good way). Now that we've got that part out of the way, here's more info. "Mama Anisi" created these thin treats over 80 years ago, and since then they've been VERY popular with a very select, local crowd. And now HG is doing what we can to spread the word about these honey-filled crispy treats so the rest of the world can enjoy them, too. While we prefer the chocolate-filled ones, the regular honey ones are really good as well. Curious as to what they taste like? They're a lot like super-flat wafer cones with a thin layer of chocolatey honey in the middle. Nothing super-fancy or overly sweet -- just a nice cookie-like snack that can be enjoyed anytime. We think you'll dig 'em!
Mr. Krispers Baked Rice Krisps - Sour Cream & Onion
That Mr. Krispers sure has a handle on the whole snack chip thing. His Sour Cream & Onion Baked Rice Krisps may be the most addictive chips we've ever tried. And we're not sure we're happy about that. Sure there are 37 baked, whole grain chips to a serving. And those 37 insanely delicious chips only add up to 110 calories and 3.5 grams of fat. But we have to be honest, it's not easy to stop at 37. We sorta kinda want to eat the entire bag (which they say has 148 chips). So keep that in mind, and if you decide to buy 'em, make sure you have lots of pals around when you open the bag. By the way, we were so caught up in the taste and nutritional info we forgot to mention that they're gluten free, cholesterol free, and saturated fat free. Oh, and they also come in a slew of other flavors. Mr. Krispers, um, we love you.
Vitasoy Chocolate Banana Soymilk
(8 oz. - 130 calories, 4g fat, 150mg sodium, 21g carbs, 1g fiber, 20g sugars, 4g protein = 3 Points)
Those geniuses over at Vitasoy sure know their way around filtered water and organic soybeans (FYI, those are the two main ingredients in soymilk and that was our lame attempt at a joke). You may remember how we FLIPPED over Vitasoy's holiday flavors (Holly Nog and Chocolate Peppermint)... well this summer they're back with yet another off-the-charts delicious beverage -- Chocolate Banana! This stuff is slightly higher in calories than many of the other drinkables we push, but a little goes a long way -- and even a half a cup of the stuff is enough to rock your face off! Try spiking your iced coffee with an ounce or two of it, or using it to make yummy cocoa-banana smoothies. We are in love! Heads up -- we hear this is a limited-edition flavor that will disappear after the summer, so you may want to stock up now. The good news is the shelf-stable packaging ensures that your stash will last for a looong time! Click here to see where Vitasoy is sold in your neck of the woods.
