Half the world doesn't have clean drinking water and the other half is looking to add vitamins, sweetener and colors to theirs. The idea is you take this container which has powder, you squeeze it on top of a water bottle and it adds a bunch of vitamins, sweetener and color. The taste reminds me a lot of Kool-Aid, which is not necessarily a good thing. Sweetened with stevia, one bottle is enough for 12 squeezes.

What you might not know is that hotels and caterers typically use liquid coffee concentrates instead of brewing huge pots of ground coffee. This is the same idea, but for just one cup at a time. This flavor is a blend of Central and South American coffees, (although we don't know from which countries), that is flavored with rum, maple, pecan and cinnamon. It's certainly easy enough and the taste is good. What I do miss is the coffee aroma filling the kitchen! And these are expensive.

I happen to love coconut everything! And these coconut chips, which are about this big, are a little too small for me to snack on, but will be terrific on top of ice cream, a cake, and I could even see it on top of salads and fish. Sugar and salt are added, but do not interfere with the coconut flavor. Imported from Thailand.

This might just be my newest afternoon snack - figs that are enrobed in a delicious dark chocolate that is a perfect way to quell a hungry tummy! Figs are loaded with dietary fiber and vitamin B6. One bag is 160 calories and 2 grams of protein. The chocolate is good - the fig's even better.

You'll probably remember how much I loved Yum Earth's lollipops - now they finally have gummy candies. These are organic, gluten free, with no artificial colors or flavors and no high fructose corn syrup. One bag is just 75 calories and is very flavorful and not too sweet. These snacks are shaped like bananas, cherries, peaches and strawberries and taste just like them. Yay for Yum!
