i’ve been trying new products, all for you! Here are a few reviews of some foods I’ve tried lately. If you have your own opinion, leave it in the comments!
Lucy’s Cookies–I saw this on the shelf at the grocery store while looking for a new cookie. I thought the packaging was pretty so I bought Chocolate Chip and decided to try it because I can be a chocolate chip cookie connoisseur. Here are the facts: 3 cookies have 130 calories, 5 g fat, 12 g sugar. They are gluten free too.
Here are the opinions: They were very crunchy and crumbly, and the first few I had were already broken in the package. It reminded me of Chips Ahoy cookies (remember those?!). I tend to like softer cookies. I guess the best way to get those is to bake them at home. They tasted good, and also weren’t too flat. I’d give it a B.
Lucy’s has four varieties–sugar, chocolate chip, cinnamon thin, and oatmeal.
Mary’s Gone Crackers–I also saw these crackers and read about them on other blogs. I have tried the Herb variety. They go great with cheese. Don’t all crackers? Facts: They are wheat free and gluten free, have 140 calories and 5 g fat for 13 crackers.
Opinions: They are very crunchy–like loud crunchy, have a cute round shape, and are very flat. If you are used to TLC Crackers or even Saltines, they are nothing like that. They are very grainy. Depends what kind of cracker you’re looking for. As far as taste, I think also a B.
Boca Veggie Burgers–I have a continuous challenge to find a protein to eat for dinner when I don’t prepare ahead of time or have leftovers. So I thought I’d buy veggie burgers for the freezer. Facts: They have 12 g protein per burger at 80 calories. These were very flat, and microwaved fast. Opinions: Hard to stomach. I gave it two tries. I have two left in my freezer and it will probably be left for a desperate dinner. I am still on the lookout for easy protein at dinnertime! This gets a C+.
Wholly Guacamole 100 Calorie Packs–Credit for finding this one goes to my sister. These packs are great. 3 packets per package, and they aren’t skimpy on the amount! The ingredients are familiar–avocado, jalapeno puree, onion, salt, garlic. I know all those words and no chemicals or additives included. Facts: One packet has 100 calories, 8 g fat, 4 g fiber, 1 g protein. You obviously know that avocados will have fat, but a little packet with controlled serving size is very helpful! These also freeze well. Opinions: I love this product! Simple and short ingredient list, good serving size, easy to open and spread. Freezes and defrosts well for lunchtime. I took one out of the freezer to have on a sandwich and let it defrost in the refrigerator overnight. Then spread on at lunchtime. A+ for Wholly Guacamole.
