Now that we’ve got just a little over a week of May under our belts, I’ve been able to try the next batch of snacks from my Nature Box monthly subscription.
As someone who loves to try new and different foods, I was eager to open up this month’s goodies.
In addition to 5 health(ier) snacks, the Nature Box comes with a card summarizing the contents of each item.
Banana Bread Granola, Lemon Meringue Waffles, and Taj Mahal Snack Mix
Whole Wheat Raspberry Figgy Bars and Italian Bistro Pretzels
Now let’s take a look at each one!
Banana Bread Granola
This granola was pretty good, though I could hardly taste the banana flavor. It was very crunchy, almost like a crisp cookie would be crumbled up. Very tasty over some yogurt.
Lemon Meringue Waffles
I wasn’t really sure what to expect with these. They are light, crispy with a nice sweet lemony flavor. The card suggests to sandwich a little frozen yogurt between two waffles or snacking on with some tea, though I ate them straight out of the bag, as well as with a bowl of strawberries and cool whip. Didn’t really ‘knock my socks off’ but still tasty.
Taj Mahal Snack Mix
As someone who loves a good trail mix of nuts and dried fruits, this was right up my alley! I enjoyed the unique mix of sweet mangoes, almonds, sunflower seeds and raisins all coated in a smoky (subtle) curry spice. The recipe card suggests incorporating into a homemade chicken salad… I may just have to try that if I don’t eat it all first! 😉
Whole Wheat Raspberry Figgy Bars
Think of these as a healthier, whole wheat version of Nutri Grain bars crossed with Fig Newtons. Although I’ve never really been a fan of Fig Newton, these tasted pretty good still but not my favorite.
Italian Bistro Pretzels
Even though these are called pretzels, they taste a bit like crunchy garlic breadsticks. Never said they weren’t delicious though!
Enjoy your Thursday! 🙂
