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.

Kashi Cookie: Free and on its way

There are two types of people: those who order free samples of things and those who don’t.

I do, but I feel that I’m in the minority. I will gladly fill out an online survey or my mailing address in exchange for something free and fun to arrive in my mailbox. I’ve done this many times and derive quite a bit of satisfaction it.

I recently filled out an online form to receive a free Kashi cookie, and today I got an email to say that it’s on its way. I hope it’s the best cookie I’ve ever had. Though if not, it was free.
