Kashi products was kind enough to send me a box of their products to sample last week. I've been having a blast going thru the box. It was like a surprise package with mystery goodies inside! Kashi was super generous and sent many different varieties of their great wholesome products. Click on the title of this blog to go visit their website where they have tons of nutrition data, serving sizes, recipes, ingredient lists and much more!
1. Oatmeal Raisin Flax Cookies
These were delicious! They were my favorite morning breakfast treat I'd had in a very long time. There are large chunks of toasted walnuts, plump juicy raisins and flax which I'd never ever tried before. This recipe is excellent & I highly recommend it to everyone. They are very thick & large but only 130 calories. One will fill you up so that & a glass of milk make for a good wholesome breakfast treat.
Who knew you could have cookies at breakfast if you wanted?
2. Snack Crackers
I love these whole grain snack crackers! They taste a bit cheesy and have a lot of special added seasonings on them. They are the perfect size for soup, dips or however you'd like to use them. I'll definitely be buying these in the future. Gosh, I just love trying out new products! These have 120 calories for 7 crackers which is a good snack size portion. Just right to fill you up a bit and not make you stuffed.
3. Party Crackers
Wowser! I can see why they call these Party Crackers now. It's because the taste is so fantastic that there is indeed a party it's inside your mouth! It says roasted garlic which is something I truly love to eat anytime. It also has the added essense of thyme. I've never really tried the spice of thyme before but these were so good I'm going to have to go buy me a bottle of it! You really have got to try these party crackers! Don't save them for a party either, you deserve to have your own party every day. I was a bit surprised to see that 4 of these crackers contained 130 calories but believe me they are worth every last one of them. You'll feel like you've had a lot more calories than that when you munch of these goodies.
4. Fruit & Grain Bars
These have a great taste but the texture is a little hard. Very chewy but manageable. It would definitely help if I wasn't a denture wearer. The flavor is very rich and sticky gooey tasting without the mess!
5. Almond Crunch Bars
These bars are roasted almonds so the flavor is really spectacular! Being a baker you know what roasting does to anything; well it doubles double duty with these snack bars. They are super crunchy which I happen to like.
6. Dark Chocolate Covered Coconut Bars (need I describe these?)
Wow my favorite of this box was definitely the dark chocolate covered coconut bar. It's a great sized portion with only 120 calories and tons of nutrition in it. It is made with all whole grain products so it doesn't spike your sugar levels up.
I've been going thru all the samplings everyday and I must say having a terrific time doing it! The flavors have all been delicious! The cookies remind me of the soft baked oatmeal cookies my mom used to bake when I was a child. Pepperidge Farms has nothing over on Kashi. It's even better that Kashi products are healthier for us all. They are made with only natural products, whole grains and can sugars which you know is a plus for everyone but especially for us diabetics. The cookies tasted great and they didn't spike my blood sugar count so I was very pleased with them. I could eat a healthy snack like that every day because it doesn't taste like a cardboard box like some of the other "healthier" brands do.
I say hat's off to Kashi for making some great healthier products that everyone will love to enjoy. I must admit I had my doubts because i have tried several other company's cookies & such and many of them leaves an awful aftertaste in your mouth! Kashi's products don't do that and you feel satisfied and not guilty because you know you're doing good for yourself and your family.
I hope in closing that you will all run out to your local grocery stores and pick up a few boxes of these Kashi snacking products. I'm sure you'll be very pleased with them! After you do, come back by here & drop me a comment, let me know how much you liked them so I can say I told you so! ha ha Just kidding I won't say that just stop by anyway!
Thanks again to the wonderful folks at Kashi who sent me these great samples to enjoy. I really appreciate it! Kashi.com
My sons & I also have an eBay Store so drop by anytime!!
