My New Favorite Snack

My New Favorite Snack: goodnessknows snack squares have earned a place in my pantry. So delicious and rich enough to satisfy my sweet tooth in about 40 calories per square.

I'm a snacker.

I have to be. After I had my babies I had to knuckle down and get healthy. I lost weight and learned A LOT about myself and my nutritional habits. The most important thing I realized about myself is that I make the WORST decisions when I'm very hungry. I have friends that can still order a healthy meal when they are grabbing a bite later than expected.

I'm not one of those people. I'm one of those people that gets nutritional amnesia once my stomach starts to growl.

This means that my car, my bag, and my luggage is always harboring a stowaway. A snack that I can eat when a meeting runs long, when I'm traveling and I don't want to venture out for something to eat before I've had my coffee (or gotten out of my PJ's), or when the weather is beautiful and we stay at the park FAR longer than expected.

Because of this habit, we've also worked snacks into our Click Retreat events. Last month in NYC, someone said to Rachael and me, "You guys are pretty serious about your granola bars."


So, of course I jumped at the chance to try a new snack. Here are the five reasons why goodnessknows snack squares have earned a place in my pantry.

1. They are CRAZY good.
Real food, tastes real good. See the cranberry? The pieces of almond? The bottom had a nice dark chocolate coating and the apple, almond & peanut, dark chocolate flavor reminds me of a PB&J...a REALLY GOOD PB&J. As for the peach & cherry, almond, dark chocolate...tastes like pie. No joke. Snacks that taste like really delicious FOOD.

2. They are poppable.
That's a bite-size piece for me. I like that. My lipstick doesn't get messed up, it's easy to share a package, and my teeth don't get filled with bits of food. I eat on the run A LOT...this stuff matters to me, especially because I tend to miss meals because I'm shuffling kiddos around on my way to meetings and appointments. I like snacks that leave no trace.

3. Tray packaging doesn't get crushed.
These tasty little snacks come packed in a cardboard tray. So when they spend a few days getting tossed around the bottom of my bag, my snack is still intact. Maybe that doesn't sound like a big deal to YOU, but have you ever been covered in granola bar crumbs in your car, or on a plane? Of course you have. Me too.

4. My kids like them.
For a while I was buying 3 different snack bars. One for the kids, one for my husband, and one for me. My kids like these so it makes packing up to hit the park a lot easier. One snack. EVERYONE WINS.

5. They keep me from going buck-wild.
This final one is a BIGGIE. I'm working REALLY hard to dial my sugar and treat consumption WAY back. I can enjoy a decadent, high-calorie treat every SINGLE day without even blinking. I spent most of the summer doing just that, so believe me when I say I'm trying to turn some bad habits around. Halloween didn't do me any favors and without fail, every afternoon after lunch, I found myself trying to resist the urge to raid my kiddo's candy stash. Instead, I had a goodnessknows snack square. One square and my sweet tooth is happy. The combo of dried fruit and chocolate is flavorful and rich and at around 40 calories per square, it's a snack won't undo my healthy eating goals.
