The Cheese Board: This consists of cheese-flavored cashews, cheddar cheese bruschetta and baked herb bites. It has 120 calories. It’s okay, but I’m not really a big cheese person, so I don’t find it particularly exciting.
Apple and Cinnamon Flapjack: This is a flapjack (i.e. soft granola bar) with apple and cinnamon (duh). It has 240 calories. I like cinnamon quite a lot, so I found this enjoyable. But I wish it were lower in sugar and fat and higher in fiber.
Strawberries and Cream Protein Granola Topper: This contains oat and barley granola, yogurt-coated strawberry pieces, soy protein crispies, and freeze-dried strawberry pieces. It has 130 calories. I think it’s a good breakfast option, eaten with the plain yogurt I get at the farmer’s market. My only issue with it is that it just isn’t as good as fresh strawberries, which are plentiful here this time of year.
Sesame Garlic Crunch: This is a mixture of garlic sesame sticks, oat bran sesame sticks, and multigrain soy rice crackers. It has 140 calories. Crunch, sesame, crunch, sesame – what more do I need to be happy?
Snickerdoodle Dip: This consists of a snickerdoodle cookie dip with cinnamon pretzel sticks. It has 150 calories. This is one of my favorite sweet snacks, largely because I like cinnamon a lot. I’m always glad to get this.
Kettlecorn Kern Pops: This consists of half-popped corn kernels with sweet and salty seasoning. It has 130 calories. I prefer my crunchy snacks to be savory rather than sweet. This is okay, but there are other snacks I like better.
Fantastic Forest Fruits: This consists of soft apple pieces, cherry-flavored raisins, blueberries, and lingonberries. It has 80 calories. I find the lingonberries too tart, which is surprising, since I like lingonberries on things like Swedish pancakes. And the cherry-flavored raisins don’t work all that well for me. This isn’t terrible, but there are other Graze fruit snacks I like a lot better.
Booster Seeds: This consists of sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and golden flaxseeds. It has 200 calories and 9 grams of protein. I like this, though it isn’t really very exciting. I do, however, find the small size of the flaxseeds to be a bit of an annoyance. But, overall, this is a satisfying source of mid-afternoon protein.
