Goody2Chews: Healthy Fruit and Nut Snacks
Looking for a healthy snack to replace your afternoon energy bar (or worse yet, a trip to the candy jar)? We recently came across Goody2Chews, a Canadian fruit and nut snack that may be the answer.
Goody2Chews come in three flavors: Yogurt, Caramel and Chocolate. We sampled all three, and especially liked the Chocolately and Caramel flavors. Each bag contains a single serving size of the candy-coated chews -- roughly a handful -- with a consistency not unlike the fruitier confections in a Russell Stover's gift sampler. It's like a hybrid between a Balance Bar and a handful of Viactiv calcium chews, only tastier. Each 2 oz bag of Goody2Chews has 200 calories and contains 10 grams of protein and 12% of your daily fiber. The single serving size makes them ideal for lunch boxes or as a snack to keep in the back of your desk. I could also see bringing them on a bike ride or hike!
Goody2Chews are produced in a facility that's gluten- and peanut-free. They don't take the place of actual fruits or nuts, but they're a nice nutritious alternative to more sugary or calorie-laden convenience snacks.
