Fuel Snacks from Foodie Fuel ~ a review

My favorite snacks are ones that taste delicious while still being good for you. Often I find myself short on time and long on hunger, so I need to keep a supply of nutritious snacks at hand, both at home and in my car. Snacks for at home are simple, I can grab a handful of nuts or a piece of fruit as I stroll through the kitchen. Snacks for my car can be a real challenge. I cannot just leave a bunch of bananas on the backseat until I am hungry for them, and it can get messy trying to eat from a package of mixed nuts while driving down the highway. What's an active girl to do? I must eat, otherwise my mommy attitude gets replaced by one that more resembles a monster. I found a great solution: Foodie Fuel snacks!

Back in October I was introduced to the Foodie Fuel company and their oh-so-delicious snacks at the MomsMeet WOW Summit. Besides being a great organic, gluten-free, and paleo-friendly snacks to bridge that time in the afternoon when you're craving something a little sweet, these fuel snacks come in four flavors. Why is that important you're wondering? I'll tell you: as much as I like chocolate, I cannot be eating it every time I need a healthy car-snack. Too often I have found health-food companies focusing on everything chocolate, and not having enough alternative flavors.

I was pleasantly surprised to find the Fuel Snacks from Foodie Fuel come in four unique flavors: Butter Toffee, Cinnamon Ginger, Coconut Vanilla, and Swiss Chocolate. Then - I tasted them - oh my! Deliciousness! I'll readily admit I went back by their booth a second, and then a third time to try the snacks all over again. Each flavor is distinctly unique, and the texture is somewhat crunchy, yet lightly chewy. It looks like a cracker, but tastes more like a cookie. Butter Toffee tastes the sweetest to me, but with only 8 grams of sugar per serving while still providing 2 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein  it is satisfying while not actually being that sweet. All of these flavors are made with low-glycemic, slow-burning carbs, healthy fats, and complete proteins. 

Cinnamon Ginger scored high with my husband on flavor, as he agreed that it was good, but knowing my tendency to not-share while hungry, his consumption of Fuel Snacks was limited. :) Arlene said this flavor reminded her of walking into a country store, with spices, candles, and pie.

Swiss Chocolate is actually lower in sugar, with only 4 grams of sugar per serving, while still being quite tasty! One of the reasons these remain so good-for-you while tasting divine is the use of organic coconut sugar as the sweetener. The different flavors are all made with various combinations of nutrient dense food sources like: pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, coconut sugar, golden flax seeds, sea salt, and natural flavors.

My absolute favorite flavor is the Coconut Vanilla Fuel Snack! Sadly, this bag was gone all too soon. I will need to order some more right away.
