Chobani Flip Lemon Meringue Pie

IMG_8152

Oh Chobani flips.. some of my favorite yogurts. I have to be careful with these because they actually do contain a lot of sugar (16g for this one above!) but I still love them. I try to treat them as dessert more than a meal or a snack. I pretty much have enjoyed all of their flavors that they put out. I like having some crunch in my yogurt and I love anything lemon flavored so when I saw this on the shelf.. I had to try it.

I really enjoyed this flavor! Not too overpowering of a lemon flavor. You know when lemon is so overpowering you pucker your face.. usually it tastes delicious but man does it hurt your jaw. I would definitely buy this again! I liked the mix ins of the pastry crumbles and the lemon clusters! Chobani was successful again at a limited time flavor, and I would definitely recommend buying it to try.

Since this is a limited edition yogurt, it is not available online I will still recommend ANY other flavor of their flips. You can find them here! – Chobani Flip

Lenny & Larry’s Complete Crunchy Cookies: Chocolate Chip

img_8178-1.jpg

 

Chocolate chip cookies… the best flavor of cookie out there. So simple, but seriously, the most delicious. So didn’t have the best time trying the other Lenny & Larry’s crunchy cookie flavor, but I thought why not try the other one. Who knows, can you really go wrong with a chocolate chip cookie. I really like these because if I just want a small pre-workout snack, this is the best way to go. I can’t eat too much before my workouts so if I grabbed a couple cookies to go, it should be great!

Now onto the review… these were so much better! I actually did like these cookies. I still get that kind of proteiny (definitely not a word) taste with them, but it’s not as bad. I like the flavor of the cookie and the chocolate chips are pretty tasty. I would definitely eat these for a good snack. I wouldn’t compare this to their big, soft protein chocolate chip cookie. Even texture can really change the taste but it doesn’t taste bad! I think I still prefer the big cookies but I can’t complain about these.

Lenny & Larry’s Complete Crunchy Cookies: Double Chocolate

IMG_8174

I have always been a huge fan of Lenny & Larry’s! Their big protein cookies are the best pre-workout or post-workout snack. I especially love them heated up in the microwave. When I heard they were coming out with smaller, crunchy cookies, I was very excited because sometimes, the big cookies are just too much food. They have come out with three flavors: double chocolate, chocolate chip, and snickerdoodle. Snickerdoodle was not available but I did grab the other two flavors!

Now onto the review of these chocolate cookies. I have to honestly say, I was disappointed. The flavor is just very.. bland? I don’t get a crunchy chocolate cookie flavor that I was hoping, but more just a mellow chocolate flavor and more bland protein flavor. I’m sad about this because I do love their other cookies, but this is definitely something I wouldn’t rebuy. I’m not even sure if I’ll just throw out the bag. Save your money on this one and I would recommend their other products.

GoMacroProlonged Power Macrobar

Bananas + almond butter, is there a better combination? I have never had GoMacro before so this was a first for me! I figured you can’t go wrong with two great flavors. It is vegan which intrigued me. I have tried a lot of protein bars and lots of different brands, so I was ready to try a new brand and hope for the best.

I am completely BANANAS about this bar! Get it.. okay ANYWAY. I thought it was delicious! It is a subtle banana flavor but the bar was so smooth and you get that almond butter flavor in there. I had it for breakfast and it kept me full for quite a while. I have a feeling I will continue to crave these protein bars and watch for sales! It almost reminds me of banana bread with a little bit of a spicy flavor to it (literally spicy, not hot spicy). It does have a sweet flavor to it if that is not your preference, but overall it was great and I would recommend to go try it for yourselves!

GT’s Strawberry Lemonade Kombucha

Sweet, sweet summertime. Nothing screams summer like lemonade. I absolutely love lemonade, flavored or not, especially adult lemonade. I was so excited when I was at Trader Joe’s and saw that a new flavored Kombucha came out. 

 

Now I absolutely loved the flavor of this kombucha, but it may not be for everyone. It is very sweet, and may take a little longer to drink down than other kombuchas. I do like really sweet things but not everyone does. It has a strong strawberry lemonade flavor. This is perfect and refreshing for summertime!

Health-Ade Bubbly Rose Kombucha

Why does WordPress ruin the quality of my photos?

Tone it up and Health-Ade have come together to make a new kombucha! Health-Ade hasn’t always been my favorite brand of kombucha. Their flavors area always more mild and I prefer flavorful drinks. I thought I would give this flavor a shot mixed with hawthorn berry, mangosteen and pink rose. Also, I love the color of the bottle so that has to count for something right?!

This post is going to be a very easy post. I liked the flavor of the kombucha. It is still a subtle flavor which I would prefer a little stronger but you can taste those fruity and soft flavors. It almost has more of a sweeter flavor which I liked! It was very refreshing for a hot summer day and I would recommend this flavor to friends. This is probably my favorite flavor from their brand!

Although it is not available on amazon, I wanted to link their other flavors incase others wanted to try some older flavors!

Aloha Coconut Protein

 Personally, I do not like whey protein. It never sits well with my stomach. With this, I always try to find the best vegan protein products. I know coconut is not always the most popular flavor but I will eat ANYTHING coconut. When I found this for sale at Target I was so excited to try it!

Trust me.. I do not like the walls most houses have here in Florida either.

Aloha’s proteins for the most part have been pretty hit or miss with me. So I didn’t know what was going to happen trying a pre-mixed protein drinks. It comes off of the shelf but I prefer my protein drinks cold so I put it in the fridge overnight. Now the most important part… the results!

I really enjoyed this protein drink! It’s a subtle flavor of coconut in there, but it has a really good flavor. It is low in sugar but you don’t get that stevia aftertaste. It’s very smooth (not grainy!) and is thick almost like a milkshake. It is a great on-the-go protein drink and I definitely recommend it all protein drinkers.

You can order them here! -> Aloha Protein
