I’m Nuts About You and Ice Chips, Too

I'm Nuts About You and Ice Chips, Too

I’m Nuts About You and Ice Chips, Too

As someone who goes out to eat a lot for work, it’s extra important for me to find great food and snack options when I’m at home or on the go. Finding healthy snacks and candy that actually tastes good can be a challenge, though, so I’m always up for trying something new. I recently checked out two cool treats – almonds and candy – and I’m excited to share my experience with all of you. We all know almonds are a great healthy snack alternative and come in some fun yet typical flavors like honey roasted or smoked. And I’m sure we can all agree we’ve seen some sugar-free candy on the market but might also agree that it often doesn’t taste very good. Well, I’ve got some great news for you. Nuts About You and Ice Chips are two really wonderful companies that make delicious tasting and healthy snacks and candy.

Nuts About You

Almonds have long been applauded for being a healthy snack to enjoy between meals. They’re very nutrient dense and pack a lot of protein per serving which help keep you feeling fuller longer. Though they also contain alot of fat, it’s the good fat (monounsaturated) and they have Vitamin E and Vitamin B-2. All these factors contribute to almonds being named a smart snack. There are plenty of brands  that sell almonds but there are none out there quite like Nuts About You. Healthy almonds now come in fun, unique flavors including Cookies N Cream, Matcha Green Tea, Coconut, Sriracha Honey, and Fireball if you’re up for the spicy challenge.

The Cookies N Cream are such a sweet treat and a great way to curb that sweet tooth of yours. Next time you’re thinking of reaching for an orea, grab some Nuts About You Cookies N Cream instead. Matcha Green Tea are right on time with the current matcha trend sweeping the nation from ice cream to candy and more. Only these almonds make a guilty pleasure completely guiltless. The Coconut flavor is the most neutral but still unique adding just a slight hint of sweetness to the almond but yet not overpowering in anyway. And you can definitely taste the fresh coconut in each almond. Sriracha Honey is the perfect union of sweet and spicy in each bite and were my second favorite flavor. I’m a spice lover and was completely up for the Fireball challenge which I LOVE and are definitely my personal favorite. They undoubtably pack quite a punch and should be avoided by those of you who can’t handle the heat!

Nuts About You isn’t currently on the market but they have an Indiegogo campaign going that you can support and be one of the first to sample the product. You can try all flavors or pick your favorite. Either way, if you want to see Nuts About You on the market soon, they need your help. Pledge your support here.

Ice Chips Candy

Ice Chips

Ice Chips have been hailed the good for you candy and I am already addicted! The treat first made its debut on Shark Tank when two entrepreneurial grandmas, Bev Vines-Haines and Charlotte Clary, introduced a great tasting candy made with Xylitol that’s great for teeth and diabetic friendly. Between the two ladies, they have 37 grandchildren. Their goal was to create a sugar-free candy that burst with flavor that all the grandkids would enjoy. Ice Chips were the answer and Shark Tank agreed.

I’m in love with the candy and knowing it’s main ingredient is Xylitol is justification enough for me to continue enjoying it. Xylitol stregnthens teeth, reduces tooth decay and cavity-causing bacteria, inhibits growth of dental plaque, and contains zero net effective cards. Plus they taste great and I think my dentist would approve. See all of Ice Chips benefits here.

I can’t get over all of the incredible and eclectic flavors from fruits to mints and even some fun cocktail and holiday options. See list below for flavor choices and visit www.icechipscandy.com for details and to purchase your own. I have not quite made it through ALL the flavors but I’m a huge fan of the fruits like berry mix, lemon, and strawberry daquiri. I also really love the peppermint which is so fresh and makes my breath totally kiss worthy! Root Beer Float tastes exactly as its name implies.  Try some for yourself and comment below telling me which is your favorite!
