SunRype Fruit Snacks

#sunrype, SheSpeaks

If your kids are like mine....they LOVE fruit snacks! If you are like me....you secretly love them also.

A few weeks ago the lovely people from SunRype USA teamed up with the lovely people from SheSpeaks.com and sent bloggers across the country with a box FULL of SunRype goodies!

Inside the box were 3 different types of snacks with 2 different flavors each.

First, there were the Fruit & Grains bars. I have to admit, it did not look very appealing at all. But, I put that aside and bit into the bar anyway. It really wasn't THAT bad. Please know that I normally do not eat things like this anyway. I tried the summer berries bar. It was good, but something I will more than likely not pick up at the store. If you normally eat bars like this, I bet you would love these. There are lots of grains in the bar. The texture of the bar is very grainy and just breaks apart in your mouth. Out of the 3 these were my least favorite.

Next I tried the fruit bars. I am a BIG fan of natural fruit leathers and this is just a giant version of a fruit leather, to me. I tried the strawberry and oh my gosh! It was SO good! These are the PERFECT afternoon snack for me! I looked up the points value on these bars but now I can't remember if they were 2 or 3 points. But, either way, they are totally worth it plus, each bar counts as 2 fruit servings! Mads tried these as well but did not care for them. That is fine, I will eat them all!

Finally, we tried the fruit strip. These are perfect to toss in your child's lunch! Each little strip pulls apart so there is a fun factor with these. These are VERY chewy/gummy/sticky. I did not like that aspect but I am also not sure that can be helped. Both girls liked these, both flavors were great!

The strips are fun to pull apart and play with! Let your kids play with their food once in a while!

I was worried I would not be able to find these in my local stores, but as we were grocery shopping the other night....my hubby actually pointed them out! We were in the produce section and he said "Hey! Look at these, I bet these are good!"  He had no idea I had a box full of them sitting in the kitchen!  lol

In the end, the fruit bars and strips will definitely be picked up at the store the next time we see them, the fruit and grain bars....well....I am sorry but I am going to have to pass on those.

You can find #SunRype on Facebook! Be sure to like their page, they have a coupon up right now for B1G1 Free! But hurry, there are very limited qualities!

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her.
Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good! I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags.

Lightened-up Copycat KFC Coleslaw Recipe

Mmmmmm....I LOVE KFCs Coleslaw!  I mean LOVE it! It is the perfect creaminess, sweetness, crispness!  Growing up I LOVED when we had KFC, my meal consisted of potatoes and gravy, a chicken leg, biscuit with honey and a boat load of slaw.  To this day, it is my go to comfort meal.
But, after looking up the nutrition info, I kind of fell out of love a little bit. Goodness is it loaded!  I decided right then I was going to try to lighten it up a bit.  The results? Totally worth it and awesome!
