Penny’s Low Fat Desserts Chocolate Chip Cookie

Will I ever get bored of doing cookie reviews?

…NOPE! : )

I recently reviewed Penny’s Low Fat Desserts White Chocolate Cranberry cookie, and thought it was great. Penny’s Low Fat Desserts also sent me the Chocolate Chip variety to try. Does the Chocolate Chip cookie meet the same delicious expectations?

Of course!

Chocolate Chip– the first thing that came to my mind when I tried this cookie was, This cookie is SWEET! Normally I like a balance between sweet and rich flavors when it comes to chocolate chip cookies- but this I must say, was still very enjoyable! It was soft and moist, with a delicious taste of vanilla. I also liked how it had an almost buttery taste- amazing considering there is only THREE grams of fat per 1.8 ounce cookie! The chocolate chips were quite tasty as well- reminded me of eating a sweet chocolate candy bar. The only reason this cookie doesn’t get 5 stars is because the first ingredient is sugar. Otherwise, it’s a must-try treat!! 4 1/2 stars

Kardea Nutrition Bars

One of my favorite things to eat on the go is different type of bars- granola bars, cereal bars, fruit bars. Not only do I find them convenient, but most of the time quite tasty too!

Kardea Nutrition sent me a few of their bars to try. According to the website, here is some information about these bars..

  • Plant Sterols-1 gram
  • Total Fiber-7 grams with 5 grams Soluble Fiber
  • Heart Healthy Soluble Fiber-3grams
  • Protein-7 grams with 3.5 grams Soy Protein
  • Vegetarian-Friendly (Chai Spice & Banana Walnut Are Vegan)
  • Kosher Certified
  • Only 150 Calories/Bar
  • No Trans Fats
  • Lower Glycemic Formulation

Well, these certainly sound good! But how do they taste? I decided to try the Cranberry Almond and Banana Nut varieties. One thing I noticed about these bars is that the texture is unlike anything I have ever eaten in the past- very chewy and quite dense- it kind of reminded me of fruit leather, but softer, or maybe perhaps fruit snacks. I was expecting something harder or crunchy, but these were certainly different! I also really liked that these bars provided a good amount of both fiber and protein. Hooray! 🙂

Cranberry Almond– what a yummy cranberry flavor! I liked that the cranberry flavor was not too tart, which sometimes makes me not like cranberry flavored products. It had a good amount of sweetness as well. I also liked the little crunchy pieces, which I would imagine were the almonds and the oats, that added a little bit of texture. 4 stars

Banana Nut- ooh, also pretty good! It reminded me of like a sticky banana bread, actually. It had a sweet banana flavor, with just a hint of nutmeg. I also really liked the walnut taste- went perfect with the banana flavor. It overall was quite a sweet bar, but tasty!! 4 1/2 stars

Each bar is 140 calories, 5 grams of fat, 21 grams of carbohydrates, 9-11 grams of sugar, 7 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein.
