Looking for a New Crunch (and Some Chocolate?) Check Out These Snacks

Snack Girl is always on the hunt for delicious and healthy snacks. I like to feature ones that you may not know about.

Snack Products October

Somersault Snack Co. has turned out a non-nut little crunchy bite that reminds one of gerbil food – until you try it. The base is sunflower seeds with toasted grains. What do I love about them? They are low in sugar and sodium, taste really good, and are incredibly nutritious.

Find them here: Store Locator or on Somersault Snack Co.. A 6-ounce bag will set you back about $3.99.

Feel the need for cheese? Yeah, so do I but I try not to reach for Cheetos. Instead I would grab some John Wm. Macy’s CheeseSticks. These are made with real cheese, are low in calorie (90 calories for 2 sticks), and don’t have any artificial color, preservatives, or ingredients. You will not miss Yellow #3, I promise.

Check them out at John Wm. Macy’s CheeseSticks.

If you are going to eat chocolate, eat expensive chocolate. This is one of my rules because it keeps me from the junky waxy chocolate that shows up on Halloween. Lake Champlain Chocolates may cost you $5 per bar – but, boy, is it worth it.

These chocolates are made with Vermont cream and butter AND they are Fair Trade. The samples they sent me were organic and I swiftly hid them from my children.

Find Lake Champlain Chocolates here: Store Locator or online at Lake Champlain Chocolates.

It's funny what we are willing to spend $ on. I scoffed at the price of the crunchy grain snack and thought I'd rather make it myself. Then I got to the chocolate bar section and mental I saw a $5 bill float away! I love chocolate especially the good kind!

Wish you posted the PP values on these too.

I too wish we could get the weight watchers point values on these new products.

I have never heard of most of these products. We do buy Wholly Guacamole that hubby loves. It certainly seems that it is very natural due to it going brown within a few days in the fridge. We now buy small packages that can be used up at one time. I cannot buy salsa in jars, or packages of any kind. They never make it the way I like it. It is so easy to dice up some tomatoes, green onions, and cilantro to make it fresh. If you take out the seeds from the tomatoes and do not add salt, this salsa will last for days in an airtight container. (Salt draws out the water.) Add your seasoning before serving to keep it from getting watery and mushy.

I went to the Somersault's web site looking for nutritional info..It's not even on there for you to figure out WW pp.

I didn't try the other products. But if you want nutritional info, just try going to the other product's web sites.

I found the Somersaults in the Health Food section of Pathmark in NJ. awhile ago. I must say, after trying them, they stayed in the bag so long that I had to throw them away. There is better (WWP+) out there. Buy the chocolate!

I've been eating John Wm. Macy's cheese snacks for years! For a long time I had to make the trip to World Market to find them, but now they're available in my area (central Arizona) at AJ's Fine Foods.

I had a difficult time finding the Somersalts because I live in the country....However, there is a Target who carries the Pacific Sea Salt (my favorite), the Dutch Cocoa (good but can leave an aftertaste) and the Cinnamon Crunch (which I haven't tried yet). I take a handful of the PSS, put them on a napkin at my desk and munch on them throughout the morning. They have my favorite seeds and just the right crunch...YUM!!

Bought all Somersaults flavors (online they have a nice deal to try them all and get a teeny tiny discount) and I LOVE all the salty ones. Seriously, the only snack I crave. It's no joke that they are filling and pack a lot of protein for a snack. As a vegetarian they keep my energy level way up.
