Taste Test Tuesday

29 Oct

It’s that time of week again, another Taste Test Tuesday.

I found the Second Nature’s Celebration Medley trail mix on sale at Kroger and had to pick it up and give it a shot. I’m a sucker for a good trail mix, especially if it does not contain M&M’s. There is plenty of chocolate in the mix, it is a good when a chocolate craving hits. A little of this mix goes a long way!  I would definitely recommend it!

From the source it contains:

A joyful blend of:

dark chocolate
Dark and White Chocolate – packed with dozens of essential nutrients, including powerful antioxidants such as flavonoids.
cranberries
Cranberries – another member of the superfruit family, containing antioxidants and other phytonutrients.
almonds
Almonds – a rich source of nutrients, including vitamin E, calcium, folic acid and protein.
cashews
Cashews – containing oleic acid, which is the same heart-healthy monounsaturated fat found in olive oil.
brazil nuts
Brazil Nuts – These delicious nuts are not only a staple for many special occasions, but provide lots protein, healthy fats and other essential nutrients.
whole peanuts
Peanuts – protein-rich legumes that provide 10% of the US RDI (recommended daily intake) of protein per 1 ounce serving.
Here is the Nutritional Facts.

Taste Test Tuesday- PB2

25 Sep

This week while at the grocery store I picked up some PB2 for Taste Test Tuesday. I have heard good things about the peanut butter (and I love me some peanut butter) so I figured I would give it a try.

I was a little skeptical because it was powder.While I was a skeptic there is not doubt it is yummy. It tastes just like regular peanut butter except it is in healthier form. PB2 has 85% less fat calories than traditional peanut butter. From the source:

“PB2 is made with high quality peanuts that are slow-roasted to our specifications and pressed to remove the oil. All natural with no artificial flavors or sweeteners, and no preservatives.”

I brought it to work with me and dipped my apples in it. At first it had a really runny consistency. I added a little more powder and stirred and like magic it turned into the normal peanut butter consistency. I think it will make a great addition to shakes! I can’t wait to try it out in one of my breakfast shakes!

Taste Test Tuesday-Talenti Gelato

10 Sep

I have decided to do Taste Test Tuesday’s. A blog post that will share new products I have found. I’ve definitely been venturing out with the products I have been using and figured why not share my opinions and give my readers some suggestions.

This week I went with Talenti Gelato.

I’ve always believed gelato is 100% better than regular ice cream. I’m not sure if I just believe this because I am a gelato junkie or because it reminds me of Italy. Either way this brand is the way to go! Talenti is as close to the real deal I have found stateside in years.

Here is a blurb from their blog:

Our gelato is made with fresh, hormone-free milk and only pure cane sugar. Not only is it delicious, but with 30% less fat than regular ice cream, it’s also a healthier alternative.

30% less fat? Yes please. Add in the hormone-free milk and great taste. I think I may have found my new favorite. They offer some amazing flavors. I picked up Caramel Cookie Crunch and Black Raspberry Chocolate. I can say I did not make a mistake with the flavors I picked. They have a variety of different flavors in the store, and even more on their website. I was a little disappointed to see flavors I would like to try online that are not in the store.

Where can you buy it? The have a lot of different locations from Kroger to Target to Whole Foods. They also have a store locator.
