Better 4 U Snacks: Part 2

Fancy Food Show 2018

Vegan Rob's Kombuchabar™ bars-"crunch consciously" with organic quinoa, pumpkin+sunflower seeds and very slight hints of all star ingredient-n kombucha (yup-like the 'it' sip-the tea)...fermented-therefore has active bacteria cultures aka probiotics). Also delivered, 6 gram plant based protein- more than similar bars not loaded with whey (and therefore, not vegan)....and 4 grams of real deal fiber. Four flavors available-Non-GMO, cold pressed (heat protection for probiotics), vegan and grain free. Factoid-this company has plenty of snacking fans...founded by the leading light of Pirate's Booty popcorn.
BIENA's salted roasted chickpeas (deliversr a bit of protein, calcium, iron and potassium, naturally) -are a fav snack-now the company has taken a sweet turn with Fair Trade certified dark chocolate coated and FUN-Girl Scouts' inspired THIN MINTS' flavor-that nails it-the chocolate int so unique surrounds crunchy chickpea---more like a a crunchy texture vs any chickpea flavor. Needless today-those lasted about 48 minutes on the kitchen table before being devoured.NON-GMO, Fair Trade, gluten free, vegan and kosher.



never seen the cat move so fast to grab a bite...beating out  Greenies!
Feline fav---we'd put the almost sinfully addictive, Sheila' G's Brownie Brittle  in the better for you snack category-based on taste -texture alone. The rich crisp snack's MO-is to capture the top layers of home cooked brownies...and is available in a gluten free version-and new flavor Chocolate Almond-laded with chunks of chocolate and almonds---like an 'energy bar'...yet with the same melt-in-your-mouth feel...like the best home cooked dessert staple.
re-sealable bag-but our experience with Brownie Brittle...no need for  that,
Al the aforementioned-good to crumble/layer on any kind of creamy yogurt/ice cream/gelato.
