I am linking up with Eat Pray Run DCYou Signed Up for What?! and Mar on the Run for the Friday Five Linkup. Every Friday they have a linkup for bloggers to Link up a post about 5 things or write on their theme. This week’s theme is Friday Favorites. I decided to write about my favorite snacks right now.Friday Five

1. G.H. Cretors Chicago Mix popcorn. I’m addicted to this stuff right now and they sell a big bag at Costco😋. It’s a great mix of caramel and cheese popcorn. I like how it contains non-GMO ingredients too.IMG_0740.JPG

2. Greek yogurt with Hemp Hearts or Granola. I love the combination of vanilla Greek yogurt and hemp hearts or granola. It makes for a filling snack.IMG_8891.JPG

3. Fruit. Fruit is always a great snack. I’m liking the usual cuties, bananas, or apples.IMG_0741.JPG

4. Dark Chocolate Almond barkThins. I have a sweet tooth and this satisfies it well, haha😋.IMG_0743.JPG

5. Mamma Chia – Chia Squeezes. The Blackberry Bliss is a great flavor. I like having a fast and convenient way to get Chia seeds with fruit.IMG_0744.JPGWhat are your current go to snacks?

OMG, these are good! barkTHINS snacking chocolate


Have you tried these? I got this bag of barkTHINS snacking chocolate with fruit from Costco. It’s the Blueberry Quinoa flavor with agave. These are so good! I had a couple of pieces after my dinner and it makes for a great dessert. The quinoa makes it crispy and sort of reminds me of a Crunch bar, and the blueberries add to the flavor of the dark chocolate. It’s so yummy!


I like how it’s made with natural ingredients. I didn’t know what Fair Trade Certified means, but the dark chocolate is Fair Trade.  I decided to look up what the Fair Trade dark chocolate meant on their website and found this:

A Fair trade chocolate label guarantees consumers that the farmers who grow the cocoa beans we use in our chocolate are getting paid a fair price. It also means that they are following good agricultural practices and are investing in their farms and communities. Under Fair trade, farmers can increase their incomes and gain access to better education and healthcare for their families. All of our Dark Chocolate flavors are certified by the Fair Trade USA organization. To learn more, please visit their website.www.fairtradeusa.org

It’s nice to know that the farmers are getting paid at a fair price and are following good agricultural practices. It seems it benefits both farmers and consumers.

But with all sweets, these aren’t that healthy. There’s a lot of saturated fat – 5g which is 26% of daily value and lots of sugar -20g. I think everything is fine in moderation though :).20140509-172710.jpg

Have you tried these or a different flavor? What’s your favorite chocolate snack?
