I know that everybody is going crazy over pretzels - pretzel bread, pretzel buns for hamburgers and hot dogs, and of course pretzel chips. Now, these look like a normal pretzel that was flattened, so I have to ask, what's wrong with pretzels being rounded? I know you can use these to put cheese or other toppings on, but there's just something about eating a flat pretzel that doesn't taste as good. How does it taste? Good, but there is an overpowering taste from the wheat and malt. One note: they've registered the trademark 'Simply Naked Nothing but Sea Salt’ and its on the front, but the ingredients does contain sunflower oil, honey and malt extract as well.

Call me lazy, but if I want yogurt with things mixed in I want it to come that way. This new container has these wings that you just fold over the yogurt, on paper might work well, but the honey just sits there and you need to put a spoon inside to mix it. A small spoon! You really need to spend a lot of time to mix in the ingredients thoroughly so they are evenly dispersed. How's the flavor combination? Well, the Greek yogurt is a mild Greek yogurt and there's probably a bit too much honey which makes it very sweet. I do like the fact that they list the strains of bacteria that it contains. One container is 190 calories, 11 grams of protein and a whopping 30 grams of sugars which come from the added sugar and of course from the honey.

If you really like chocolate ice cream you're going to love this one. This chocolate is a deep chocolate flavor actually more like fudge than the typical chocolate ice cream. It is single origin which means that all the cacao comes from Borneo, but if you're going to indulge, and you should, realize that this container - and I know you're not going to eat the entire container, are you? - contains 1150 calories, 85 grams of fat and 85 grams of sugars. Wow! But it is wonderful.

Eat them as is, make mashed potatoes, potato salad, whatever you wish. They cook perfectly, taste delicious and have no ingredients besides the potatoes. One serving, which is 4 ounces, is just 85 calories, contains 478 mg of potassium and 2 grams of protein. All the potatoes are grown here in the US.

So this is a pichuberry. You peel back the leaf and inside is this slightly sweet, slightly sour blast of flavor. This is a perfect fruit to introduce to kids because it is just so much fun. About half of this box is just 65 calories with a low glycemic index of 25 and rich in antioxidants. Look for this to be the next super fruit hit ...and we'll start seeing Physalis Perviana everywhere and in juice, smoothies, ice cream…everywhere. Imported from Colombia.
