Don’t forget the Sahale Snack Giveaway!!  =)

I don’t know about you, but I was always a fan of mini snacks when I was younger. I think they are so cute- and, you usually get a bigger portion size for roughly the same amount of calories as the bigger counterpart!

So, you can count on it that I was certainly happy when I got a box of each Mini Cheddar Cheese and Mini Peanut Butter Bite Sized Sandwich Crackers to try given to me from Late July!

First, I tried the Mini Cheddar Cheese ones. I opened the box and saw a lot of little sandwich crackers- yum!  I couldn’t agree more with the front of the box, as it said “Buttery Tasting Rich Crackers” for the cracker part, and “White Cheddar Cheese” for the cheese filling. It’s EXACTLY what it tasted like! The cracker was salty a buttery, a bit dry, and soft/flaky. The cheese had a nice white cheddar flavor, that was salty and slightly tangy.  I liked that I got 13 crackers for one serving size, of only 110 calories!

The Peanut Butter ones were just as good. The cracker tasted the same, salty, buttery and slightly dry, with a thick peanut butter on the inside. Thick in consistency, not amount. It had that stick-to-the-roof-of-my-mouth peanut butter, that wasn’t oily at all. It was also a slightly sweet peanut butter- yum! I do wish there was a bit more peanut butter on the inside, but still delicious!

Overall, these get 4 stars. I love that I get 13 crackers (1 oz) for a serving size, that these are organic, and I loved twisting each cracker off one by one, and eating them that way. Brought me back to when I was little =) On the downside, there is hardly any fiber in these (less than 1 gram per serving), and they are a bit high in sodium (310 mg for cheddar cheese, 240 mg for peanut butter) and fat. But, I think they are a great snacking alternative, and are quite tasty, too!

13 crackers is 110 calories, 7-9 grams of fat, 16-18 grams of carbohydrates, less than 1 gram of fiber, 2-3 grams of sugar, and 2 grams of protein.

Ah, peanut butter. On fruit, on a sandwich, or straight from the jar, it’s definitely one of my favorite foods. Another great way to enjoy peanut butter is with Late July’s Organic Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers. According to the wrapper, these crackers are “real organic peanut butter between organic buttery tasting rich crackers”. Can we say, yum? 🙂

The people over at Late July sent me a package of the peanut butter sandwich crackers to try. They have 4 sandwich crackers per package, each lightly sprinkled with salt, and a golden yellow color. The crunchy cracker part was delicious. I agree with the wrapper for the “buttery tasting rich crackers” part- very true! The peanut butter was rich and thick, and slightly sweet. I do wish that there was a bit more peanut butter in between the two crackers, but it was still tasty.

Overall, these get 4 stars. I liked that these sandwich crackers came in a pack of 4, which was conveinent for a peanut butter lover like me. I could see myself eating more than 4- they were delicious! You also get 4 crackers for 160 calories, a satisfying snack with a glass of milk, some fruit, or even by themselves. What I didn’t like was that they are low in fiber, and made with wheat flour instead of whole wheat flour. Otherwise- I would give these a try, especially if you like peanut butter!

1 package (37 grams) is 160 calories, 8 grams of fat, 17 carbohydrates, 1 gram of fiber, 2 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of protein.

Organic Wheat Flour, Organic Peanut Butter (dry roasted organic peanuts, organic palm oil, organic sugar, salt), Organic Oleic Safflower Oil and/or Organic Oleic Sunflower Oil, Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Organic Palm Oil, Sea Salt, Leavening (baking soda, ammonium bicarbonate, cream of tartar), Soy Lecithin (an emulsifier), Enzymes.

Late July is a great company. Founded by Nicole Bernard Dawes with her dad in 2003, they make a variety of all natural and organic foods. There top 3 reasons for choosing organic is 1. To save the environment 2. Reduce Health Risks and 3. Support Small businesses. The Late July Organic Mini Endangered Animal Sandwich cookies even donate 10% of their profits to the Jane Goodall Institute, to help those poor animals!! They are also a good source of whole grains and calcium 🙂 Finally, a cookie everyone can feel good about eating!!
They come in two flavors, White Chocolate and Milk Chocolate. I got the pleasure of trying both, provided by Late July. Each of the sandwich cookies are ADORABLE. They have a whole bunch of animals on the outside cookie part, including the Leatherback Sea Turtle, Red Wolf, Chimpanzee, Sumatran Rhino, Pygmy Rabbit, Black-Footed Ferret and the Giant Panda. My favorite was the panda! So cute! How could you eat these guys ?

White Chocolate- Very delicious. Tastes like a mini oreo-but not as fake tasting or overly sweet. The cream is soft and sweet, with a light vanilla flavor. The chocolate cookie is crisp, and easy to swirl off of the cream.

Milk Chocolate– Also deeeeeelicious. Think keebler cookies, but better! The chocolate cream on the inside tastes like a soft, creamy milk chocolate, accompanied by a rich vanilla cookie on the outside.

Overall, these sandwich cookies ROCK. 4 stars for sure. These are great by themselves or with a glass of milk. I spread some natural peanut butter on the white chocolate flavor-HEAVEN!! I would love to try more Late July products. They seem AWESOME!!
