Wholesome Junk Food: If you say so
There are two kinds of people: those with a sweet tooth and those without.
I was blessed (or cursed, depending on your perspective) with an active and attention-seeking sweet tooth. While I enjoy many savory foods, a day rarely seems complete without at least one dessert or sugary snack. Still, being nutrition-conscious, I’m not about to reach for a donut or piece of cake every day.
Laura’s Wholesome Junk Food is sold at grocery stores and come in several mouthwatering flavors. I can vouch for the deliciousness of the oatmeal chocolate chip and lemon vanilla, and I’ve got my eye on the banana split, gingerbread, and cashew chocolate chip, which sound fabulous. The best compliment I can pay is to say that they don’t taste healthy- they really don’t.
I love how the website and packaging are forthright with the ingredients and the nutrition information. Are they as healthy as an apple? No. But are they a better bet than desserts with hydrogenated fats like a Blizzard or a slice from the Cheesecake Factory? Yes.
