Yummy Diet Food Snack Pack Giveaway

Yummy Diet Food Snack PackHello and Happy Tuesday! So, I've been blogging now for about 10 wonderful months, and since then I've received several emails from you about having difficulty finding some of the foods that I blog about about in your local area. So, I thought today I'd do something different and hold my own giveaway in an effort to send a package of five yummy snacks that I've featured on the blog to a loyal reader! :)

So, what's in the Yummy Diet Food Snack Pack? Some of my favorite snacks of course!

low calorie cheese puffs(1) One large bag of Snikiddy Grilled Cheese Puffs: On top of being healthy, these organic cheese puffs are a perfect blend of cheese flavor and crunch, making them a really fun and satisfying treat/snack to eat. One portion is only 120 calories, 5 grams of fat, and 1 gram of fiber, and 3 weight watchers points (I know, I wish it was 2, but just not enough fiber). And, they are gluten free!


funky monkey freeze dried fruit(2) One bag Bananamon Flavor Funky Monkey Freeze Dried Fruit: We all know that we are supposed to integrate several servings of fruits and vegetables into our diets every day. Dried fruit is definitely very portable, so I'm always on the lookout for interesting dried fruit options at the store. Funky Monkey distinguishes itself from many dried fruit options in two important ways: (1) the fruit has no added sugar so it is low calorie, and (2) the fruit is combined with other natural flavors (like cinnamon, lime juice, acai) that make it extremely yummy!


qbel chocolate wafer rolls(3) One Milk Chocolate Qbel Chocolate Wafer Roll: QBel Wafers are like pirouline rolls (round crispy/flaky wafers), except these are coated inside with a thin layer of chocolate and then covered with an even more perfect layer of dark chocolate around the outside.



0 calorie flavored water(4) One Cucumber flavored Hint Flavored Water: If you are too busy to make your own naturally flavored water, I have to say Hint water is a very close substitute. The fruit flavor is very subtle, but yummy enough to help me easily drink my 8 cups of water per day. I really like drinking Hint water when it is refrigerated versus warm.


sweet riot chocolate covered cocoa nibs(5) One canister of flavor "65" Chocolate Covered Cocoa Nibs: The sweet riot chocolate covered cocoa nibs are really fabulous, and as much as I adore the other dark chocolate cocoa nibs I've blogged about, I have to say the one serving size container these come in also makes them really cool! What's also cool about the container is that you can re-use it by filling it with small one size servings of nuts, other treats, or even more coca nibs.

The giveaway is very simple. Just leave a comment on this posting about a food (or foods) that you wanted to try but you could not find, *or* a food that I've blogged about that you love. If you leave your comment on this posting between now and Sunday March 29th at 8:00pm, you will be eligible to win the package of the 5 snacks that I've pictured at the top of this posting! I'll choose a winner at random next Monday, March 30th.

Good luck!

Enjoy!
Juliet

Since I live in a small town in Louisiana, you can imagine how few items I am ever able to find . . . we have no Trader Joe's and the nearest Whole Foods is an hour away. I would LOVE to try anything!!! Thanks so much. Emily

Jane Beall said...

I've been trying to track down the Skinny Cow Truffle Bars to no avail! They look so good and I want to try them so bad!

CaSaundraLeigh said...

Anne said...

I agree with Maggie! I can't find the chocolate better n' peanut butter anywhere, either. I really want to try it!

I keep seeing "Barney Butter" out there but I have yet to see it in stores around here.

Caterpiller Girl said...

I want to try the cocoa nibs! I have found other brands but haven't found the ones you reviewed yet. I'm not sure my WF carries them. Love your blog by the way!

Pearl said...

i think the cacao nibs look so cool!

hmm a particular food item that i've heard about but can never find? vitatops - they're supposedly carrying them in stores now, but i can never locate them!

and this is another item that may not have been featured on your blog: dutch processed cocoa powder. i heard that dutch processed is the best to use, but i can never find it in stores. does anyone know where i can get it?

Tamar Erlich said...

My Whole Foods used to carry the sweetriot but stopped so I can't find them anymore and they are so good.

Thank you for the giveaway.

Katie O said...

You introduced me to kettle baked chips <3

And I too love figamajigs, but can only get them if I order online.

I hope to win this prize pack. Thanks!

Izzy1228 said...

I would love to try the CedarLane Fajita Chicken Burritos or some of the treats/bars you get at Trader Joes. My nearest TJ's & Whole Foods is a little over a hour away, so I only get there about twice a year, but I'll have a great list of ideas for when I do go. Thanks so much....

Krissy said...

I've really wanted to try the Cedarlane Fajita Chicken Burrito ever since you wrote about it... but I haven't been able to find it anywhere! I love the beans and cheese version, but the chicken version has been MIA. Hopefully I'll find it soon!

gracefully.living said...

the nibs! gots to be the nibs! i've been looking high and low for those bad boys.

justdawnmarie said...

I would love to try all these items. I live in a rural community where it is hard to get these specialty items.

I've been looking for the chocolate wafer rolls and the water. love your site!

LLLovingMom said...

ElleMigliore said...

I love reading your blog and finding out new products!! You're rigth though that some areas dont carry the amazing snacks you blog about. I can't find 1. the diet cheese puffs, and 2. the chocolate better n' butter PB. I've found the original but i'm eager to try CHOCOLATE!

CarolS said...

I love PB2!

Melissa said...

I love the Snikiddy grilled cheese puffs even before I became a weight watcher! I am able to find many of the items in my WA state Whole Foods but unfortunately I think the stores in CA are bigger and therefore have more selection. I wish I could get those Crave samosas and Whole Kitchen Potato Rondelet you've spoke of!

Anonymous said...

I would be "super mom" if I could find the grilled cheese puffs. My dd's two favorite foods in one!

Tammy S. said...

I would like to try the Better'n Peanut butter, obel chocolate and chocolate cocao nibs.

Danielle J said...

I've been meaning to try a kind bar. Haven't been able to find it yet..

Deidra L said...

I would love to try the grilled cheese puffs and the chocolate wafer...actually i would like to try all of these things..I have nowhere here that i can find them at. And since i've known of them i havent been able to drive to a bigger city to find them..I broke my ankle and cant go anywhere.

Caitlin said...

I finally made it to a Whole Foods more than an hour away but still couldn't find the Pizza Munchees, the CedarLane chicken fajita burrito, sweet riot cacao nibs (although I tried the Kopali kind.. yum!), the Indian pakoras, or cocoa berries (though I knew that one was a long shot). I'd love to try everything in your giveaway!

na_mangiameli said...

I've been wanting to try Barny Butter, but it's not sold in NY.

jewel-case said...

The Thai Kitchen coconut ginger soup is fantastic! Thanks for another great recommendation.

Martha said...

I've been reading your blog for some time now and have found it very helpful! Thankfully, many of the items that you post are carried by my local Whole Foods and some are at Harris Teeter also. I haven't been able to find those stuffed pizza pretzel thangs ANYWHERE though! I wonder if my area stores just don't carry it or if I am looking in the wrong places. I salivate just thinking about those. Also, your blog turned me on to Bigelow's Eggnogg'n tea ... I bought up at the last few boxes at my area Giant ... yummylicious!!!

Anonymous said...

I would love to try the chocolate figamajigs. I have been looking for them for awhile now.

Jenny said...

i wanted to try pb2 and you have a lot of creative ideas to use it! in tortilla spreads, smoothies..

blueskyworld said...

Betsy said...

There are many foods that you post about that I love and many that I would have to drive far away to get. One thing that I want to try, but I will have to order online is the PB2!

Hallie said...

I want to try Gnu bars- I wish they sold them in multipacks like granola bars!

Brownie said...

I LOVE the little dark chocolate bites from Whole Foods. I now have a box permanently parked on my desk at work. What a great find!

Anita said...

I wish figamajigs were available at TJ's!

Wendi said...

I love the Hint water ;-)

Laura said...

You recently blogged about PB2, and I just found out about and love the stuff! Thanks for all the tips (I'm also a fan of the Sweet Riot chocolate, so am excited about this snack pack)!

Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

Sarah said...

I have been very interested in the PB2 you posted about because I love peanut butter!! I find it satisfies my chocolate cravings... but I can't find it anywhere :( so sad.

Melissa said...

Went to Whole foods to find the coacoa nibs & Figamajigs. I like to have something sweet at work to avoid the endless amounts of junk food my company keeps stocked. Alas, no one had heard of Figamajigs, and they told me the coacoa nibs are seasonal, and might not be back :( I would love to try them!!!

Just said...

Oh my gosh, those Grilled Cheese Puffs sound so yummy! I've never seen them before. I'm new to your site and love it!

Liddle Lisa :) said...

i wanted to try cocoa nibs, Figamajigs, the peas of mind puffets (those sound DELISH), the pizza munchees and the pizza pretzel i couldn't find and so many more.
i would LOVE to win this snack pack!!

Jim said...

I've been dying to try the Qbel Chocolate Wafer Rolls, but I haven't found them ANYWHERE! Those are my favorite types of chocolate treats with the crisp wafer. Fage yogurt and PB2 are a staple in my diet, so I loved reading about it in your blog. I love your blog and will continue to check and read up everyday! Thanks!

The Blonde Duck said...

Those pretzels look so good!

Kay L said...

ummm the cacao nibs sound yummy.

Shari said...

Thanks for being so generous! About a month ago, I went to look for those banana puffets at Whole Foods and was told they didn't carry it. Just today I went to look for those Vitatops and was told the same thing. I told the guy that Vitalicious' website listed Whole Foods as one of their retailers. His reply was, "Oh, really? I don't know then." LOL! Geez.

Barbara said...

I'd love to sample the dried fruit!! Thanks!

Renee Guest said...

Hey. There are so many thing that i haven't been able to find here in Jackson, MS!!!!!! I started trying to ask some of the grocers to carry the stuff but i have given up! We don't have a Trader Joe's anywhere near here and I know that is where you find a bunch of your things! I would love to try your yummy finds!!! pick me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No said...

The cacao nibs seem so interesting!

Laurel said...

I don't live anywhere near a Trader Joes... but would love to check one out sometime... not that you could bring that to me, just saying!
I love PB2. I went two years without eating peanut butter, and frankly never thought I would again... but I love this stuff! I actually purchased it several months ago, but was too chicken to try it. After I saw your post about it, I broke it out, and I am so glad I did. I have the chocolate one too - it really does taste chocolaty, but I like the plain the best.

Laura said...

I would really like to try PB2 and nutritional yeast, but I can't find either one. It makes me sad.

Tiffany said...

KimberlyMD said...

I LOVE this site! It is much needed and much appreciated! My husband and I have searched the town over for the Cedar Lane Chicken Fajita Burritos. I've just recently conveyed the importance of healthy eating to my husband, but we are constantly searching for easy and healthy things for him to take to work for his lunches. He saw your post and would LOVE to find some! Thanks again for this site! I know it has proven invaluable to us on our journey to live (and consequently) feel much better!!

mortnteach said...

I love Kashi Go Lean Crunch mixed in w/ yogurt. I also buy Cuties and wasabi peas all the time. Love them too! Also have tried Clif and Soy Joy bars...liking the Clif better. I have just discovered edamame and appreciate your ideas on various ways to enjoy it. Have eaten soy nuts for years, but am loving green right out of the shell. I also ahev saved many healthy recipes that I can't wait to try this summer with grilling and picnics. I am a peanut butter NUT and wish I cou;d find PB2 on local store shelves, but no luck. Thanks for this great site!~Allison

Laura said...

Larabar JamFrakas Bars...
I can't find them ='( they look so yummy...!

Where I live there aren't any Wholefoods or Trader Joe's readily available (or any other organic-type food stores). I want to try so many of these things but especially the funky monkey fruit!! Thanks!

m said...

I love the low cal meringue cookies, but its hard to find 'em cheap!

Soo Jin said...

I loved your Bettah Banana Bread recipe - I made it and even my husband, who is usually resistant to "healthy things", loved it!

thecookingnurse said...

I've always wanted to try western bagels, but they don't have them around here.

I thoroughly enjoy your apple snack where the sliced apple is microwaved with cinnamon. I have shared this numerous times and it's a big hit.

biz319 said...

I have never been able to find the Western Bagels by me and couldn't justify the shipping charges online!

pinguino said...

i cant find figamajigs!

Sagan said...

Great giveaway! LOVE PB2 :D

georgiapeach said...

I Love PB2 ever since I tracked it down last month. I personally think it is better than "regular" peanut butter. What I am searching for in stores is VitaTop muffins. Where are they to be found????

Lisa said...

I've always wanted to try the cocoa berries!

julieated said...

Lifetime Fat-Free Cheese! I wish I could find that around me. And Banana Babies. And Skinny Cow Truffle Bars. And the So Delicious coconut milk yogurt (I'm a coconut lover too). Thanks for doing this!

CLSx2 said...

I to try Hint water but I haven't been able to find it. In fact I have not found one item you have mentioned since I joined about a month ago.

I went to a local health food store armed with a 2 page list and after looking for a few minutes finally asked for help and they had none of name brands you have listed.

So I settled for substitutes, but most of them I have not liked...

tiffanygarcia@hotmail.com said...

Ive always wanted to try the coacoa nibs!

kmd234 said...

I love Indian food and am dying to try some of the low calorie options on your website. Have not had any lucky finding them yet!

Myra said...

I've been dying to try the Cocoaberries, but can't seem to find them anywhere!!! Thanks for all your great info! I really enjoy it!

Maddy said...

I love vitamuffins and just tried them for the first time this week! DELISH!

And I would love to try some Trader Joe's products.

Annie said...

I would love to be able to find PB2, freeze dried fruit, and those stuffed pizza crusts. However, I love dark chocolate adora, fage yogurt (especially with Kashi Go Lean and dried cranberries mixed in), fiberful bars, and gnu bars. Juliet, thanks so much for this great blog. I'm a college student in a rural town who struggles to eat heathfully, and your blog helps me to do so by giving me great ideas to try out.

Gar said...

the QBel Wafers sound sinful yea good for you (chocolate got anti-oxidant, right? "P) Would love to try some!

Low Carb Band-It said...

I'm also trying to find the Better'n PB and the Cheese puffs

Lisamarie said...

Oh my goodness..first I want to say what a great website!! I was searching the net for acai berry supplements to increase energy and to feel better overall. I have been watching what I eat for some time now and it is very hard to find healthful choices in your supermarket. In my search I noticed the funky monkey dried fruit..I was drawn to these because of my sweet tooth..Can you please tell me where to find them?

Juliet said...

Hi Lisamarie - they are available at Whole Foods or on amazon. :)

TGGLOAN said...

I am new to dieting and need a lot of help,I have a lot of weight to loose asnd could appreciate the help in keeping on a diet,

Samantha said...

I haven't tried any of these. There are too many things on your site, I don't think I'd be able to try them all in a lifetime!

Kaylee said...

I've never seen any of those snacks. But mm those wafers look yummtastic!

I've always wanted to try 0% Fage yogurt, but alas! My parents can't find it at our local grocery store, and I think even if they did, they wouldn't buy it for me unless it was on sale, lol. Curse being a minor!!

Annie's fruit snacks are a delicious low cal snack. But I must say that that chocolate looks pretty tasty...

Ali Rockwell said...

I have never heard of PB2 or any kind of low calorie peanut butter for that matter, but I am leaving within the next few minutes to run to the grocery store HOPING they will have it. How amazing!
