Eat.Think.Smile Review + GIVEAWAY

 ~~~~~~~~THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED~~~~~~~~

I am thrilled to introduce my new favorite snack.  Eat.Think.Smile, a subsidiary of Hershey, is an absolutely delicious line of cocoa-based snacks.  Some of their great products include Chewy Granola Bars, Baked Nutrition Bars, Granola Clusters, and Crispy Thins- each in a variety of flavors.  All the snacks use non-alkalized cocoa leaving the antioxidants intact.  For more info on cocoa, check out this post.  Fun fact: each serving of Eat.Think.Smile's snacks delivers more antioxidant power than a cup of green tea!   

Cocoa doesn't get enough credit for it's antioxidant content.  It has way more than berries!  Just remember to avoid Dutch-processed cocoa.

Besides for the antioxidants, I'm loving all the wholesome ingredients: 

Eat.Think.Smile sent me some granola bars and crispy thins to sample.  The crispy thins I got came in sweet cinnamon and savory sea salt and the chewy granola bars in rich cocoa and mixed berry.  My favorites were the cinnamon crispy thins (they are so crunchy!) and mixed berry granola bars which have huge chunks of cherries and almonds.  These snacks are so wholesome.  They seem like something you could make from scratch if you had the time because all you would need are REAL ingredients.

Sweet Cinnamon Crispy Thins

Savory Sea Salt Crispy Thins

I almost forgot to mention the best part- nutrition facts!  The crispy thins only have 130 calories for 46 pieces- that's seriously guilt-free.  The granola bars have 160 calories per bar and 3 grams of fiber- not bad at all.  I can attest that they are very filling.  These snacks are very good plain but I bet the crispy thins would be awesome in milk as cereal.

My girl is a big-time snacker (she definitely takes after her mother) and these passed the Lyla-test.  Everytime I took out the crispy thins, she started screaming "More!"  I'm happy these are healthy and I could happily indulge her craving.

These are my new favorite snack and they can be yours too!  Thanks to Eat.Think.Smile, FOUR lucky readers will win a prize package including 2 bags of crispy thins and 2 boxes of granola bars, 1 of each flavor as pictured below.  You get one freebie entry and the rest are optional to increase your chances.  Enter the contest using the rafflecopter widget below- good luck!
