Healthy Convenience Store Food & Drink Finds: Sugar-Free Lemon Water, Hummus Chips, Cookie Dough Protein Bites

Jun 2 2021
Have you been keeping up with all our super-fun hauls on the Hungry Girl podcast? If not, you're missing out. Here's a taste of the great finds that were sampled on this week's Convenience Store Haul episode…

Lemon Perfect. Cold-Pressed Lemon Water

12-oz. bottle: 5 calories, 0g total fat (0g sat. fat), 0mg sodium, 9g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 0g protein — SmartPoints® value 0*

With summer creeping up on us, fun ways to hydrate are high on our list of priorities. (Plain H2O is great, but sometimes we want a change!) This water is zazzled up with lemon juice, natural flavors, and just a bit of natural sweetener (erythritol and stevia) for a perfectly light & refreshing taste with only 1g net carbs. It features bonus electrolytes and comes in six flavors, from Just Lemon to Dragon Fruit Mango! We found it at 7-Eleven, but click here to see where else you can find it.

Gold Emblem Abound Tomato Basil Flavored Hummus Chips

1 oz. (about 20 chips): 110 calories, 5g total fat (0.5g sat. fat), 330mg sodium, 17g carbs, 1g fiber, 2g sugars, 2g protein — SmartPoints® value 4*

Did you know that CVS has its own snack line? They do, and judging from these chips, we need to make more stops over there… They’re AMAZING! Thin, super crunchy, and deliciously flavorful, they're exactly our kind of munchies. Plus, a serving is 20 chips, and you know we love a large portion size! Make a stop in the snack aisle on your next CVS run.

Siren Cookie Dough Protein Bites

1 bag (48g): 210 calories, 11g total fat (3g sat. fat), 140mg sodium, 21g carbs, 3g fiber, 9g sugars, 10g protein — SmartPoints® value 7*

Looking for an alternative to the same old energy bars? Give these a try! They are bite-sized balls of plant-based protein goodness with chocolate chips, and since they're so small, you feel like you're eating a lot of them. Bonus: They're dairy free, grain free, gluten free, and soy free. We found them at CVS, but click to find them at other stores (or stock up on Amazon).
