This is Better than That

I've been eating a lot of snacks lately. Mostly because I find that I get to eat more different kinds of food if I eat them in snack portions. I've been trying out different products which I would like to talk about in this post.

I purchased this almond butter from the Blue Diamond almond company. For a company that specializes in almonds, this didn't rock my world. The color is darker than other almond butters I've had before. Plus, for being a creamy butter, it wasn't all that creamy. More like gritty-looking. I don't think I am going to buy anymore after I finish this jar. I have to admit that I purchased this because I was too cheap.

Too cheap to buy this brand. No kidding, this is my favorite almond butter but it is expensive. As in, I would have to get a second job if I develop a habit. Luckily, I'm not really an almond butter fan but if I were, this one would be the one I would want to be buried with.

Moving on...I got a sample of this Everlast bar in PB Chocolate Crunch at my last race. I don't know how I feel about a bar made by the same company that makes workout wear.

Looks yummy doesn't it? It wasn't! I should have known! I didn't like it very much. It was really ordinary and had a little bit of a bitter after-taste. 

This Iced Gingerbread Clif Bar was a part of my birthday gift from Sister J this past year. It is a very sweet and moist bar. You can literally see the "moist-ness" of this bar when you unwrap it. It glistened. Sorry, I was hungry and forgot to snap a photo of the inside. I think I still like the Cherry Almond one best.

Ok, I'm done ragging on food for now. I'm heading to Las Vegas this weekend, so hopefully I will get to eat some real food. I'll be back in a few days with a fun Sin City post. Off to pack I go. Ciao!
