This week we highlighted several random products. The first thing I noticed was a new “Greek” cream cheese.
Green Mountain Farms®: Cream Cheese and Greek Yogurt combination. This product is basically a higher protein cream cheese. The cream cheese has 4g protein per serving (double the normal amount) as well as the live active cultures you would expect in Greek yogurt. In addition to the added protein this cream cheese is reduced in fat. I have actually tried this and liked the flavor and consistency very much. This product is a nice addition to the dairy case.
Philadelphia double protein cream cheese: Philadelphia cream cheese also has a product with added whey protein to yield a product with 4g protein per servings. This product is also lower in fat; I have not yet tried this product.
My next stop on our “random” review was the freeze dried fruit aisle.
Funky Monkey®: fruit that crunches: This product is freeze dried fruit with added juice such as orange. I tried the mango with orange juice and found them delicious (Tim did not like them as much as I did). This product is meeting the growing demand for healthy portable snack choices for families on the go. There are 7 flavors available.
Bare Fruit™: Is another brand of freeze dried fruit. This product provided 2 servings per container and only contained the fruit.
From the dried snacks I moved over to the produce section where I found another good snack. Wholly Guacamole®.
Wholly Guacamole® minis: Minis are 100 calorie snack packs of deliciousness (Can you tell I have tried this and really liked it?). The ingredients in this product are straight forward and include avocado, jalapeno, vinegar, salt, dehydrated onion, and granulated garlic.
Daisy® Cottage Cheese: is the final product in my random review. This is another product I have tried and like very much. This product contains no preservatives or added growth hormones and just has four ingredients. It is a great high protein addition to smoothies, or pancakes and more. http://www.daisybrand.com/cottagecheese/
Hopefully some of this information will help you: Shop well, and eat well.
