New-to-me Foods Review

1. Crunchies- Crunchies is a line of freeze dried fruits and vegetables. Unfortunately, I did not get to try the freeze dried roasted veggies because my terrible dachshunds stole them!! They seemed to like them though : ). I really enjoyed the tropical fruit which had pieces of freeze dried pineapple, mango, banana and strawberries. My favorite part of this mix is the strawberries which are a bit tart and melt in your mouth. I think that freeze dried fruit is a good alternative to traditional dried fruit because it still gives you that sweet taste but is much lower in calories.  The salted edamame was also very tasty. Edamame is high in protein and is filling.

2. Bakery on Main Carrot Cake Oatmeal and Blueberry Scone- I have tried some of the other Bakery on Main oatmeals and love them. The new blueberry scone flavor is great! It gives you that blueberry flavor without being unhealthy like many baked goods. It is plenty sweet. The carrot cake flavor is wonderful. When I first heard of this flavor, I knew I had to try it. It just needs the cream cheese frosting now ; ). Bakery on Main oats are gluten free and uses other whole grains such as amaranth, quinoa and chia and flax.

3. Cravebox- Cravebox is a company that sells different themed boxes of goodies. I was sent the "Back to School Snacks" box to try. I love the idea of these different themed boxes which can suit the needs of people with all different interests. I liked the Good Health Natural Foods Veggie Sticks which are a slightly healthier version of chips. The SunRype fruit strips are fun for kids. Honestly, I think that this box does not come with a lot for the cost and could be improved. However, the other packages that Cravebox has to offer seems much more substantial.

Have you tried any new-to-you delicious foods lately?
I would love to hear about them!

  1. I've only had the Bakery on Main granola, and wasn't a huge fan at all. But, I'll have to try their other products. Amaranth is something I NEED to try.

    1. Yeah I am not a big fan of their granola either but the oats are pretty good for a mix.

  2. I actually tried the Bakery on Main oatmeals myself! While I thought they had great flavor, they were a little TOO sweet to my sensitive palette. Other than that, I LOVE Bakery on Main ^.^

    The other products look pretty tasty as well!

    1. They are pretty sweet but I like mixing half a pack of Bakery on Main oatmeal with 1/3 cup plain oats. That way, you get a bit of sweetness but not too much.

  3. I rencently tried the unsweetened vanilla almond coconut milk from almond breeze- it is super delicious!! I wanted to add more variety to the nutrients i get since i am vegan and drink a lot of almond milk. My evening beverage now is chai tea made with the hot almond milk- sooo good.
    Those crunchies sound great!
