I’ve reviewed Snikiddy’s yummy chocolate chip bites previously, and i enjoyed them.  So, I was excited to try their other snacks which would hopefully satisfy my salty/munchy craving. Snikiddy makes puff snacks, which resemble cheese balls  Each puff is about the size of a mini cotton ball or marshmellow.

Grilled Cheese Puffs- I ate a few of these corn puffs, and i honestly felt like they had transformed grilled cheese sandwiches into bite sized balls! They weren’t just cheesy tasting, they had a real grilled cheese sandwich taste to them! Toast and all! I was kind of shocked, i was expecting just a cheese puff taste, but they do taste like grilled cheese!

Nacho Cheese Puffs-  These were good as well. They had less of a stronger cheese flavor, more of a mix of spices flavor. I tasted more garlic/onion flavors than the other flavor, and a bit of tomato as well.

*added*
Mac n’ Cheese Puffs– these really reminded me of macaroni & cheese too!! More of a white cheddar flavor, but not too salty, which was good. Tasty!!

Overall, I like these puffs!!

Yogi Granola Crisps

Ah, granola. I love it!. Give me some granola and milk, or some yogurt and fruit and I am SUPER happy.

Yogi‘s Granola Crisps  made without preservatives, artificial colors/flavors, high fructose corn syrup and GMOs. They also provide 20g of whole grains per serving (1/2 a cup). They come in 3 flavors, Baked Cinnamon Raisin, Fresh Strawberry Crunch, and Mountain Blueberry Flax.

THESE ROCK!! They are bite-sized, about the size of a quarter, and resemble corn flakes a bit, but you can actually see oats and grains baked into each crisp. They have a nice crunch to them, and they are sweet! They have a sort of glaze on them which I think aids in the sweetness. This particular flavor you can taste the cinnamony goodness very easily, and you can also taste a nice light molasses flavor in the Baked Cinnamon Raisin flavor .(*added) The Fresh Strawberry Crunch was equally as delightful! Good strawberry flavor, and quite sweet! Just so tasty!

ZenSoy Pudding

Pudding. Who doesn’t like pudding? I love chocolate pudding. Rich, creamy, delicious! So I waas interested to try ZenSoy Pudding. Made with soy? Hmm. According to ZenSoy, there products contain isoflavones, and  “these isoflavones, or plant estrogens, show substantial health benefits in helping to lower cholesterol.  Isoflavones also fight osteoporosis, reduce the risk of coronary heart disease and a variety of cancers, lessen menopausal symptoms and improve breast, endometrial, colon and prostate health.” Well that certainly beats Jell-o’s health claims (if there are any).

So these puddings come in four flavors, Vanilla, Chocolate, Chocolate Vanilla Swirl, and Banana. Banana! I LOVE banana flavored things!  i picked up two of the flavors, the Chocolate Vanilla Swirl and the Banana that came in cute snack packs.
I tried the banana first, being so eager. It wasn’t as creamy as i expected it, being used to chocolate, rich pudding, but it was still creamy. I stirred it a bit more and it had a nicer texture. It was more of a “jellier” than creamy texture to be in fact. However, it was DELICIOUS! Real banana flavor, not that fake artificial banana flavor (that you get with like, Laffy Taffy or other “banana” flavored things). It also had a bit of a vanilla taste to it. I liked it. I think it would be good slightly frozen. Yum!

Chocolate-Vanilla Swirl- That’s what I’m talking about! Creamy, rich and delish! Much more of a creamier/pudding consistency and texture as composed to the banana flavor. It was good too. The chocolate part was a deep chocolatey flavor, adn the vanilla part, although small, was sweet. These puddings rock!

Nutrition Facts are good as well. I like that there are no refined sugars/artificial sweetners, and each is fortified with some calcium.
The Banana flavor is 100 calories, 1 gram of fat, 21 carbohydrates, 1 gram of fiber and 2 grams of protein.
