5 Healthy Snacks for on the go

Sorry it's a day late, I'm really trying to get back into blogging but blogging is just a hobby for me and I don't always have the time and I'm really trying to get blogmas ready :)

On with the post...

Lately I've had an addiction to healthy snacks, I mean they're more filling, tastier and more fun than chocolate. It's just me isn't it, oh well.

So I've been collecting the wrappers for about a month of some of the different healthy snacks I've tried and I want to share my opinions on them with you.



Go ahead! Crispy Slices
Not my favourite but thin wafer biscuits with different fillings that are great for snacking or while your working.

Urban Fruit
(Mango and strawberry)
Their claim: "We don't mess with mangoes. No sugars, no preservatives, nothing. All we do is gently bake the fruit so its easier to munch on the move." I tried describing it as mango jerky lol
I think the reason I love these SO much is that a) i convinced myself to like them when i feel for gimmick even though at first they're just well standard, and b) they're concentrated so the sugar is concentrated so they taste like sweets.

Kellog's Nutri-Grain Breakfast Bakes Raisin
Almost like a cake in terms of texture packed with Wheat, Oats and Raisins. I love these, they're really filling and one or the sweeter options.

Tesco's Sweet n' Crunchy Trail Mix
"A mix of sweetened cranberries, almonds, honey roasted peanuts, milk chocolate coated peanuts, white chocolate coated yoghurt flavour cornflakes and hazelnuts."
My problem with Trail Mix is that it's quite high in calories and so you can't eat much but my oh my is it nice. I love nuts, and dried fruit and they chocolate definitely doesn't go a miss so trail mix is a must have and this is just one of my favourites.

Eat Natural fruit & nut bars
They are cereals bar that taste amazing. Enough said. While most cereal bars are meh, these ones are actually really nice. There are half a dozen or so flavours, all with yoghurt or chocolate or something to bind together the nuts, cereal or fruit. I think what makes these nice is the flabour combinations with sound and taste great!

Yu! fruit chews - A miss
This is a snack that I don't like, it just isn't appealing to me. Its small pieces of concentrated fruit puree. The flavour is actually okay but I don't really like the concept; but do try it yourself, i'd hate to put you off and then you turn out to love it.
