Park Street Deli Protein Snack Selects with Natural Sharp Cheddar Cheese & Honey Brown Sugar Turkey Sausages Bites

WW Points® value 6*
This protein-packed snack pack is a superb use of 140 calories! The cheddar cheese is creamy and not too intense for a sharp cheddar. It pairs beautifully with the sweet sausage bites. It's a whole lotta flavor and sooo satisfying. These Snack Selects would make a great midday treat during the work week… Just make sure no one else steals your goodies from the fridge!

Benton's UpCycled Vanilla Oatmilk Cookies

WW Points® value 7*
These crunchy little cookies are special and delicious! They're made with pulp left over from oat-milk production, cutting down on food waste. The flavor is unique and really great. Consider us impressed! Also available in Okara Chocolate Chip. (Okara is just a fancy name for the upcycled soy pulp.) Go ahead and add a bag or two to your cart on your next grocery run.

Friendly Farms Plant Based Almond Non-Dairy Whipped Topping

2 tbsp.: 10 calories, 0.5g total fat (0.5g sat. fat), 0mg sodium, 1g carbs, 0g fiber, 1g total sugars (1g added sugars), 0g protein
WW Points® value 1*
This isn't your average non-dairy whipped topping! The creamy base is made with a blend of coconut cream and real almond butter, and the flavor is extra almondy. If you like marzipan or other sweet almond desserts, pick up a can promptly. Find it in the fridge section.
