T3: “Hit the Spot” Snacks

For todays’ Thursday’s Three, I’m going to share three of my favorite snacks that really hit the spot when I’m craving that “gotta have it” snack, especially sweets, salty snacks, and crunchy snacks.Photo Jul 29, 9 01 51 PMCinnamon Chex. As the package boasts, “A sweet dusting of real cinnamon and sugar flavors hug each gluten free crunchy, Cinnamon Chex™ Cereal square.” Does it get any more delicious than that!  I found these treasures a couple weeks ago, and have had them as a snack, as a breakfast, and as a dinner.  Sweet, crunchy, whole-grainy, triple score!

Trader Joe’s Partially Popped Popcorn.  I’m addicted to this stuff.  The Trader Joe’s product is one of a kind, and “has a blissful bite that exists somewhere between the extreme crunch of corn nuts and the tender chewiness of fresh, fully- popped corn.”  Popcorn is one of my favorite foods of all time, and I don’t get a chance to go to the movies as often as I did before, so this amazing partially popped popcorn really hits the spot when I’m craving popcorn or a salty, crunchy snack.  It just be may be my favorite snack ever.

Outshine Frozen Fruit Bars.  I don’t often eat ice cream, it tends to upset my stomach.  But I love a sweet, cold treat on occasion, especially with the crazy hot weather we’ve been having.  I first had an Outshine Fruit Bar after a particularly hot KC run.  We finished up our run, and KC Running Co. had frozen fruit bars for us to cool off with.  I picked up a box the next time I was at the grocery store, and have enjoyed them since! I love them because they are sweet, yet have no added sugar, and they even have bits of real fruit!  They are the perfect cold treat, and I don’t feel at all guilty having one!
