thingsthatwedo.com - sensible portions chia and quinoa pita crisps

This was a random buy. I was intrigued. Pita crisps? Chia and quinoa? Hm…The Sensible Portions Chia and Quinoa Pita Crisps looked promising. Non GMO, quinoa and chia seeds, no cholesterol or trans fats, the Sensible Portions Chia and Quinoa Pita Crisps seemed like an ideal school snack alternative.

thingsthatwedo.com - snyders-of-hanover-honey-mustard-and-onion-pretzel-pieces

Long title I know but it had to be said! My viewpoint, I know.

I used to love potato chips and, I’m not going to lie, I still munch on a few here and there. My love for potato chips however, just isn’t what it used to be. This is probably a good thing considering chips aren’t exactly a standup food group. In moderation, yes, fit chips into your lifestyle but I wouldn’t recommend eating a bag a day.

A fun substitution: Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzel Pieces. They’re savory, flavourful, and the best part is, you only need a few to feel satisfied. Yes, they are salty (they are flavoured pretzel pieces, after all) but I’d rather eat a small handful of Snyder’s Pretzel Pieces than eat an entire bag of chips. - Continue Reading

thingsthatwedo.com - belvita-cocoa-breakfast-bites

Allow me to introduce you to this very unassuming bag of belVita Cocoa Breakfast Bites. I did not buy this bag of belVita Cocoa Breakfast Bites. No, I did not. It came to me as a free sample and as a wise family member once told me: “You don’t say no to free samples.”

So true.

Truth be told, the folks are belVita are quite lucky I received this bag of Cocoa Breakfast Bites as a free sample because I guarantee you I would have never bought this myself at the grocery store. It’s simply not something I would be interested in buying.

Question is: how are these belVita Cocoa Breakfast Bites?

Well…personal preference is personal preference. - Continue Reading

thingsthatwedo.com - nature-valley-roasted-nut-crunch-bars

Move over potato chip. See you later rice cracker. There is a new fave in town. I don’t know who came up with this concoction over at General Mills but I’m absolutely in love with these Nature Valley Roasted Nut Crunch Bars with Roasted Peanuts and Sunflower Seeds. Yes, it’s a mouthful but there are quite a few different flavours in this line up and I’m only vouching for the Nature Valley Roasted Nut Crunch Bars with Roasted Peanuts and Sunflower Seeds. I tried another flavour which paled in comparison so I’m not even going to mention it.

If you want crunch that reminds you of peanut brittle (but better), look no further. These Nature Valley Roasted Nut Crunch Bars with Roasted Peanuts and Sunflower Seeds are it. - Continue Reading

thingsthatwedo.com - boulder canyon avocado oil canyon cut potato chips

I go through phases where I’m ‘pro-chip’ and other times I’m ‘chip? What’s a chip?’ I generally prefer savory snacks over sweet ones and on this particular occasion I decided to pick up this bag of Boulder Canyon Avocado Oil Canyon Cut potato chips.

Why?

Oh, because they mentioned avocado oil and I was intrigued. Would potato chips cooked in avocado oil taste any different than the typical po-chip?

thingsthatwedo.com - gh cretors chicago mix popped corn

Let’s cut to the chase: if you’re looking for something yummy to snack on, you should really try the Chicago Mix by G.H. Cretors Popped Corn. I mean, I love eating popcorn but I don’t always like the pre-packaged stuff. Sometimes, it’s too bland and sometimes it’s too salty or sometimes it’s just plain old stale. So when a friend recommended I try the Chicago Mix by G.H. Cretors Popped Corn, I jumped in for the taste test but I did so with some hesitation.

Well, this Chicago Mix by G.H. Cretors Popped Corn is my newfound favourite popcorn. - Continue Reading
