New Snack Idea

Are you in a rut with your current snacks? Looking for a healthy alternative--one that tastes delicious! Well you are in luck! I found this product and love them! They are roasted almonds dusted in cocoa powder. Simple yet yummy! Each pack is 100 calories and nuts tend to be a filling snack so it's perfect! As far as diabetic snacks go....do you ever get tired of giving your kid cheese sticks when their sugar is high and they don't need any carbs but they are hungry? Well each pack only has 4 g carbs and 2 g of fiber. So a great low carb snack as well! My girls love them! If you give them a try, let me know if you like them!

Cool! Thanks for the idea. Elise still doesn't have enough teeth for these, but it's definitely something to keep in mind for the future.

Where do you buy them? (Please don't say walmart.....)

Shamae said...

Well, sorry Wendy, I do buy them at walmart but I'm sure fred meyer or albertsons sells them as well. Maybe even smiths. If I see them at Winco I'll let ya know.

I love those almonds! You can buy a huge container of them at Sam's Club (the only place my mom could find them). Nice to know they come in small packages, too, since I never seem to know when to stop! Thanks for sharing.
