Nature Valley Granola Thins
I like granola bars, they are a convenient take-along snack that can add to your daily intake of whole grain. These are my new favorite treat. It is a very thin granola "wafer" with a coating of dark chocolate on the bottom. It is more crispy than crunchy so it is just right when you need a little something sweet.
At only 80 calories, it beats those 100 calorie packs, and it is not too sweet. Now you can enjoy a little whole grain with the antioxidants of dark chocolate.
Only one complaint, the chocolate melts quickly, so it is not a good choice for outdoor activities (unless you don't mind licking the chocolate off the paper and your fingers).
Dole Sensations Watermelon Juice
(sorry no photo) - This really does taste like watermelon in a glass. DS goes nuts for this stuff (he is a water kid), so I have to ration it a little. He must not be the only one, we had to go to 4 stores (over the course of a week) before we finally found some. In this summertime heat, it makes a light refreshing break in what sometimes feels like endless glasses of water. You could always juice a watermelon yourself, but I would rather be stitching and, at under $3, it is cheaper than juicing your own watermelon.
