I bought a couple of new products over the weekend and I thought I’d share what I thought of them. First up these Feta Herb Hummus chips from Smartfood Select.
I used to love Smartfood popcorn when I was a kid. These didn’t taste anything like that but they were really tasty. They’re called hummus chips because they’re made with garbanzo bean flour. The feta taste was pretty strong. If you don’t like feta, I don’t think you’d like these. They came in a few other flavors though.
I was wandering around Target and picked up some Grammy Sammys. (Sammies?) They’re marketed towards children but that’s never really stopped me before.
I thought it was going to be an organic pop tart type thing. The box was small, but I wasn’t prepared for quite how small the Grammy Sammy was.
110 calories for that tiny little thing? I don’t think so. It tasted fine, but way too small.
The last new product was the Kashi Banana Chocolate Chip granola bars. I’m not a huge fan of Kashi granola bars in general (9 times out of 10 when I’m buying a Kashi product, it’s a frozen meal or pizza) but I thought these sounded interesting.
These were good enough but they had a weird texture. Very gritty. I wonder what the half serving of veggies that’s advertised on the box is. Maybe it had to do with the grittiness?
Out of these three products, I’d definitely buy the Smartfood Selects again. The others, probably not.
Last night, we had something for dinner that was not new. It was taco night in our house. I suggested fish tacos but Jason wasn’t in the mood, so I made veggie taco meat instead.
I mixed some Morningstar Farms soy crumbles with half an onion, a little bit of salsa and some Trader Joe’s taco seasoning (which doesn’t have the gross additives that other brands do).
Our taco bar was self serve; aside from the fake meat, we had cheese, lettuce, onion, tomatoes and Trader Joe’s Avocado Verde sauce.
Sometimes new things are fun to try, but I do always find myself going back to my old favorites.
