Happy Almost Friday, everyone!! Apologies for taking the day off from posting yesterday, but it’s been one of those weeks with heavy to-do lists and work up the wazoo! It’s all worth it though, because tonight I am going to see TWILIGHT!! I have been waiting for this movie since the end of the summer – I’m ready!!
This post is dedicated to bars (as in, the kind you eat!) and brussels (as in sprouts, not Belgium!). I’ve been eating plenty of both this week because they are quick and easy! First things first – I tried another of the seasonal Clif bars. The Iced Gingerbread this time!
When I pulled this one out of the packaging, I knew it would likely be an instant hit. I love gingerbread – obviously, since that would be one very important factor in the purchase of this bar! This smelled just like a gingerbread house, too, which I have made in the past…
Yes, I’m as cool as they come. But anyway, back to the food! It was very nicely presented and reminded me of an iced gingerbread cookie. I just hoped it would taste half that good!
And it did!! This was a great choice – very chewy with a huge gingerbread flavor present throughout. It tasted very “real” and not processed at all. I savored it slowly while working on some school stuff and felt really content once I was finished. It kept me full for about 3 hours (maybe a little less), so it did its job as a hefty afternoon snack Nice!
For my next trick, I gave one of the JamFrakas bars that I received from Megan’s Munchies a try between classes today.
I chose the Peanut Butter Blisscrisp because I love the Larabar PB Cookie and hoped that it would be at least somewhat similar.
I know that many of you haven’t been too fond of these bars, but I really liked this flavor!! It tasted like a crispier version of the PB Cookie, in my opinion. So if you like that flavor of Larabar and want something that’s roughly the same size but half the calories, I think this is a good option!
Rounding out the bar portion of this post, I was lucky enough to receive some yummy samples in the mail yesterday!
Thanks to Robyn of Gnu Foods for sending me a plethora of their delicious Flavor & Fiber bars!! I’ve tried the Banana Walnut in the earlier days of the blog – fun flashback by clicking here! – and absolutely loved it, so I’m looking forward to seeing what else they have to offer! Expect a full review in the coming weeks Yipee!
Finally, I leave you with my second-ever video post! As I mention at the end of the video, please leave me a comment and let me know what you think of me doing these in my posts. If they annoy you, I’ll stick to the pictures and the commentary! Otherwise, I hope that you enjoy it I had fun making it.
I’m off to see Twilight!! I can’t even express my excitement in words! I will be catching up on comments and other blogs tomorrow – have a great Friday, everyone!
