Avoid The Evil Muffin at Starbucks With This Healthy Snack (Giveaway, too!)

Peeled Snacks Giveaway

September 8, 2010   170 Comments

Starbucks is a great place for a pick me up. People stop there and grab something to keep them awake.

If Starbucks had just stuck to Coffee, Snack Girl readers would be safe to enter the store and grab a 2 calorie beverage of roasted bean juice.

But, alas, there are This Muffin Has a Dark Secrets, scones, cookies, and white chocolate mochas. Yikes.

What to do? Well, a company called Peeled Snacks has come to our rescue.

The snacks are 120-150 calories of dried fruit in brightly colored plastic bags. I have not only seen them at Starbucks but also in airports around the country. They taste absolutely delicious because Peeled Snacks is not your average dried fruit purveyor.

The company has a "Real Food Philosophy". Here is a quote:

We keep our snacks as close to natural as possible by using high quality ingredients. When you bite into a juicy piece of fruit or a crunchy nut, you'll wonder why anyone would want to add sugar or fat.

I had never had dried fruit that tasted this good until they sent me a sample. It is going to cost you (on average $2 per bag)

There is a lot of sugar in dried fruit, but you will also get the good stuff of fiber, protein, and vitamins. These are a great way to have a treat without a mega calorie cost.

The cool people at Peeled Snacks would like to give a Snack Girl reader an Organic Fruit Picks Variety Pack.

To enter check out the Peeled Snacks website and pick a fruit that sounds good to you. Post your choice in the comment box below and you are entered!

Can these be found anywhere else than Starbucks and the airport?

on March 3, 2011

1)I have tried several of the flavors. The cherries are my favorite with mango coming in second. I have tweeted to @subwayfresh that their franchises should offer Peeled Snacks too.
2) Your site looks great and seems to be chock filled with usual information. You have been bookmarked.

on July 8, 2011

Just wanted to suggest a new snack I've come to love -- Yogavive Chips! They have 1-2 ingredients max depending on which flavor you chose and they are incredibly crunchy and tasty. Apple cinnamon is my fav! (And much more convenient than slicing an apple at my desk)
