January NatureBox

This was the perfect way to start the new year. This box is all about eating healthy and getting a head start on staying fit in the New Year. In the box were five nice sized bags of scrumptius treats.nat3

I received:

Cranberry Almond Bites Oh man these are good. Bite sized treats are like little cookies with a crunch. Can’t stop eating them. Hubby may be out of luck if he doesn’t get home soon. Really good.

Chocolate Ginger Bliss Really? Do I have to say it? Chocolate Yeah. Wasn’t quite sure how the ginger would mix in, but it works. Gotta be a ginger lover to like this one. That’s what I love about NatureBox. Trying things you wouldn’t expect.

Wild Berry Bunch Delightful blend of sweet and tart berries. Makes your tongue really happy. Dried fruits are very moist and fresh tasting.

Lone Star Snack Mix This one’s my favorite. Not just for the name, though I love anything about Texas. The flavors of chipotle and mesquite smoke are fabulous. Love Love Love this one. Really addictive.

Orange Crush Granola Rightly named. has a lovely orange crush aftertaste. Not to crunchy, sweet and filling. Very satisfying way to snack.natu

Food Should Taste Good

535707_10150706410308910_559351405_n Like to snack? I do. Worried about what’s in your chips? Not me. I found some great chips that have ingredients you can actually pronounce. Yeah. They are called “Food Should Taste Good”. These chips are very well named. I was sent three bags to review. Let’s check em out.


Fabulous chip for your favorite salsa or queso. Perfect all dolled up as nachos. Good crunch, great flavor.

It isn’t a party til Cantina arrives.Made from fresh, hand-cut, tortillas, these chips are created from three simple ingredients.

sweet_potatoSweet Potato

The crunch and the sweetness of the sweet potatoes in this chip make my day. Makes my tastes buds are dancing for joy.

Sweet Potato is the superfood to be thankful for. Hint of cane sugar enhances the natural nuttiness of the sweet potato in a chip that is a riff on a classic baked sweet potato. Try the chips with a fresh fruit salsa.


I love mutigrain chips. The one’s from Food Should Taste Good are at the top of my list. Deliciousness in a bag.

Multigrain is the perfect dipping partner. Flax, sunflower and sesame seeds add to the distinctively nutty flavor, making this chip a wholesome, perfect snack to be enjoyed on its own or dipped into your favorite hummus.
