PRODUCT: Honey Maid Go Bites

Honey Maid, the brand that supplies America with graham crackers, Gramfuls sandwich cookies and Teddy Grahams, has added a new graham-inspired snack to its repertoire: Honey Maid Go Bites.

They’re very crunchy little pillows, about 5/8-inch square, with a choice of chocolate or vanilla filling.

On the back of the box, soccer player Alex Morgan states that “Go Bites is a great snack to give kids a kick of energy to help them stay in the game.” It is an official snack of U.S. Soccer.

But you don’t have to be on your school soccer team. Adult snackers who want lots of crunch and a fun filling can enjoy Go Bites, too.

Personally, we wish Go Bites had more graham flavor, but that didn’t stop us from snacking on them with a cup of hot chocolate (coffee, tea and milk work, too). We also tossed the pillows atop whipped cream garnishes and stuffed them between scoops of ice cream, parfait-style.

The nutritional profile is pretty good for a processed snack. Each serving delivers 5g protein and 7g whole grains, while tasting like junk food (in a good way), which will appeal to kids.

You get 26 pillows per serving—that’s a lot—which deliver 5 grams of protein and 7 grams of whole grains. The serving is 140 calories (40 from fat), 1.5g saturated fat (8% DV), 75mg sodium (3% DV) and 10g sugars.

The line is certified kosher by OU. Discover more at HoneyMaid.com.

PRODUCT: WTRMLN WTR

Back in 2006, we reviewed a wonderful product called Sundia Watermelon Juice. It was celestial, tasting like fresh-squeezed watermelon.

Alas, the company discontinued the product, and it took until 2014 for another commercial brand to come our way.

World Waters debuted its WTRMLN WTR (someone’s idea—not ours—of a clever way to spell “Watermelon Water”). The product was named “Best Juice” at the recent BevNET Best of 2014 Awards.

WTRMLN WTR is an all natural cold-pressed watermelon water that is more than refreshing: It’s packed with electrolytes (the same amount as coconut water and six times the electrolytes of sports drinks) and L-citrulline, a powerful amino acid that aids in workout performance and muscle recovery. Vitamin C and lycopene contribute antioxidant and anti-inflammatory health benefits.

There’s no added sugar. The product is certified kosher by OU.

WTRMLN WTR is a pleasant departure from the never-ending stream of coconut waters we are pitched.

The line debuted New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Los Angeles, expanding to San Francisco and other areas this year.

A 12-ounce bottle is $4.99 at Whole Foods Markets and other fine retailers. You can buy it online at WtrmlnWtr.com, 12 bottles for $72.

So is it as heavenly as Sundia’s version? Not to us: It tastes more “green,” which may or may not be due to the varying sweetness levels of watermelon, or the fact that watermelon rind is pressed along with the flesh.

But it’s still grab-and-go watermelon juice. If your only other option is to juice your own, WTRMLN WTR is a great choice.

PRODUCT: Plum Vida Fruit & Veggie Pouches

A delicious and better-for-you snack alternative for adults. Photo courtesy Plum Organics.

 

Squeeze tubes of fruits and veggies are not just for kids. While they started out targeted to the junior set, moms and other adults started to enjoy the benefits of the easily portable, wholesome fruit and vegetable snacks.

So Plum Organics, which had been making products for kids, developed the Plum Vida line for grown-ups. The flavors are more complex and sophisticated, and the portions are larger. The five-ounce pouches can be kept in pockets, purses, lockers, glove compartments, desk drawers—pretty much anywhere.

Each pouch delivers a light, flavorful, refreshing and healthful snack, made entirely from organic fruits and vegetables with a hint of herbs and spices.

You can sip it from the pouch or mix it with hot tea or club soda. You can even use it as a sweet salad dressing (we added a splash of good vinegar). We eat it at room temperature, but on a hot summer day, you can chill it in the fridge.

 
Plum Vida pouches are available in three delicious flavors:

  • Pear, Kale, Spinach & Celery, a base of leafy greens softened by the natural sweetness of juicy pear.
  • Cherry, Berry, Beet & Ginger, a mix of natural sweetness and tartness with a subtle ginger zing.
  • Pineapple, Carrot & Mint, a burst of tropical flavor with a refreshing minty kick.
  •  
    Each pouch delivers:

  • 1/2 cup fruits and veggies in every pouch
  • 3g fiber
  • A snack for 70-90 calories
  •  
    The line is certified kosher by OU, certified USDA Organic and Non GMO verified. It is currently sold exclusively at target stores (in the beverage aisle), for $1.99 a pouch.

    And there’s a $1.00 coupon on the Plum Vida website to make your first pouch even sweeter.

    TOP PICK OF THE WEEK: Blue Isle Mediterranean Yogurt Spread

    Following on the heels of the burgeoning Greek yogurt market, ready-to-eat yogurt dips and spreads are finally raising their hands.

    While some people like to putter over dips and spreads, making their favorite recipe or seeing what new flavors they can add to cream cheese, Greek yogurt or sour cream, others like to grab and something already made. We belong to both groups, depending on how hungry we are at the moment.

    For the latter group, Blue Isle Mediterranean Yogurt Spreads will be welcome. The product’s stated goal is “to raise the bar in the retail cream cheese category with superior flavors, functionality and nutrition.”

    The brand differentiates itself by promoting its healthy probiotics (or “good bacteria”) and their calcium-rich yogurt spreads as “the new cream cheese.”

    It is spreadable, like cream cheese. It’s also dippable.

    Compared to the leading cream cheese (that’s you, Philadelphia), Blue Isle has nearly 40% fewer calories and fat, with only 60 calories and 6g of fat per two-tablespoon serving. Like Philadelphia, it is certified kosher by OU. The company says that Blue Isle contains 180% less sodium per serving than the leading cream cheese. Who knew cream cheese was salty?

    Blue Isle is available in savory and sweet flavors:

  • Blueberry
  • French Onion
  • Honey
  • Original
  • Spicy Vegetable
  •

    In its debut year, Blue Isle Original won the 1st Place award from the American Cheese Society in the Labneh, Greek Style Yogurt, and Other Strained Yogurt Products category. It is made by family-owned Karoun Dairies.

     

    blue-isle-yogurt-spread-crudites-230

    While developed as a spread, Blue Isle is easily dippable. Photo courtesy Karoun Dairies.

     

    We enjoyed all of the flavors, alternately spreading them on bagels and using them to dip crudités. The sweet and savory flavors—a opposed to the plain Original—were equally beguiling. We look forward to experimenting with canapés and dessert canapes (using our Stackable Appetizer Maker device, loaf cakes with Honey Blue Isle and raspberry jam were a good start).

    Made from rBST-free California milk, you can:

  • Spread it on bagels, flatbread and toast
  • Blend it into deviled eggs and mashed potatoes
  • Thicken or garnish soup
  • Use it as a sandwich condiment
  •  

    The line is available at better supermarkets and natural food stores nationwide (partial list: Central Market, Fiesta Mart, Fred Meyer, The Fresh Market, Harmon’s, H-E-B, Jon’s Marketplace, Lucky’s, Mollie Stones, New Seasons, QFC, Strack and Van Til).

    The suggested retail price is $3.29 for an 8-ounce tub.

    GIFT: Treat House Gluten Free Crispy Rice Treats

    Gluten free*, artisanal and an appropriate portion size—two square inches as opposed to those supersized Rice Krispies Treats—the gourmet Crispy Rice Treats from Treat House have been a NIBBLE favorite since they debuted. (Here’s our original review, a Top Pick Of The Week.)

    These gourmet crispy rice treats (that’s Rice Krispie treats without the trademark infringement) continue to dazzle with an ongoing stream of seasonal flavors and designs.

    For Holiday 2014, there’s a gift box of crispy rice treats topped with holiday and winter theme garnishes, including a dreidel and chocolate foil coins for Hanukkah.

    All treats are gluten-free, dairy-free and nut-free. The marshmallows are made using raw cane sugar, not corn syrup.

    And, the line is kosher (dairy), supervised by United Kosher Supervision.

    There’s a feel-good component, too: Ten cents of every treat (more for larger items) is donated to The Food Bank For New York City, a relief organization working to end hunger.

    The flavors at Treat House range from kid stuff (Birthday Cake, Bubble Gum, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Chocolate Pretzel, M&M, etc.) to sophisticated (Chocolate Raspberry, Salted Caramel, etc.).

    But for the holidays, head for the seasonal specialty gift box.

    The 12 pack of holiday crispy rice treats in a the silver and snowflake gift box is $31.

    Get yours at TreatHouse.com.
     
    THE HISTORY OF RICE KRISPIES TREATS

    This childhood favorite, no-bake cookie was invented in 1928 by Mildred Day and colleagues in the home economics department at The Kellogg Company. It was created as a fund raiser-for the Camp Fire Girls, a nationwide American youth organization.

    The recipe consists of butter, marshmallows and Rice Rice Krispies cereal. The butter and marshmallows are melted together, blended with the Rice Krispies and pressed into a pan. When cool, they are cut into bars. Many subsequent variations mix in other ingredients, from chocolate chips to licorice and gummi bears.

     

    Check out the different types of cookies in our tasty Cookie Glossary.

     
    *Some flavors have garnishes that are not gluten free.

    We taste many caramels each year, looking for those that are very buttery, easy to chew and bursting with natural flavor.

    Mrs. Prindable’s, the queen of gourmet caramel apples, has applied the company’s knowledge of making fine caramel to bite-size candies, available in sizes from stocking stuffer to principal gift.

    The company’s new confections include:

  • Aleppo Chili Caramels, with a touch of heat from Aleppo chilies.
  • Hawaiian Red Sea Salt Caramels, enhanced by Alaea sea salt, a red/pink salt harvested off the Hawaiian island of Molokai that provides a light crunch along with the salty-sweet counterpoint.
  • Vietnamese Cinnamon Apple Caramel, delivering tart apple flavor paired with sweet cinnamon.
  •  
    Each cube-shaped gift box contains 12 individually wrapped pieces for $9.95. There’s also a box of mixed flavors ($19.99), chocolate-covered caramels ($19.99), and a stocking stuffer of four chocolate-covered caramels ($5.99).

    The line is certified kosher (dairy) by CRC. Get yours at MrsPrindables.com.

    PRODUCT: Umpqua Oats Single Serve Oatmeal

    We’ve grown fond of single-serve premium oatmeal cups. The grab-and-go packages are easy to tote, requiring only a half cup of hot water and three minutes of sitting time to turn into a nutritious breakfast or snack. The al dente oatmeal needs no milk, although occasionally we add some.

    Umpqua Oats sent us samples of their line, and we felt good eating every one. The all-natural flavors include:

  • Jackpot: raspberries, blackberries, strawberries and pecans
  • Kick Start: blueberries, cranberries, sunflower seeds and more
  • Mostly Sunny: apples, cranberries and raisins (nut free)
  • Not Guilty: blueberries, apples, flax, chia and no added salt or sugar
  • Old School: apples, pumpkin seeds, cranberries, walnuts and almonds
  • RU Nuts: walnuts, sunflower seeds, almonds and flax
  • Salted Caramel: caramel pieces with pecans and sea salt
  • Vanilla Almond Crunch: almonds, vanilla, honey and vanilla almond granola
  •

    The benefit of Umpqua Oats over instant oatmeal is that the brand uses the whole hulled grain, rather than processed “instant” oats, providing more fiber in addition to better texture. There’s also less sugar than sweetened instant oats.

    The line is certified kosher by Blue Ribbon Kosher and certification by the Non-GMO Project.

    Umpqua Oats is currently sold at more than 2,000 retail outlets across the United States. For more information or to order online, visit UmpquaOats.com.

    Founded in Oregon by two moms and now headquartered in Las Vegas, Umpqua Oats was one of the first purveyors to provide a quick-cooking, single-serve oatmeal product based on high-quality ingredients for taste and satiety.

    Umpqua is a river in southwest Oregon. The name means “thundering waters” or “across the waters” in the native Umpqua language.

    TIP OF THE DAY: Holiday Coffee

    Green-Mountain-Coffee-Pumpkin-Spice-Bags-Kcups-230

    Pick up some seasonal coffee in bags or K-Cups. Photo courtesy Green Mountain Coffee.

     

    We typically take advantage of the holiday blend coffees to switch up our caffeine consumption. In past years, it was always a bag of ground coffee, and we’d make a whole pot, whether or not others wanted to participate.

    But now, with the proliferation of Keurig single-cup brewers and other brands that use K-Cups, it’s easier to enjoy a quick cup.

    It’s time to bring on the holiday K-cups. You can find these limited edition coffees at retailers and online. Here’s a selection of coffees for the holiday season:
     
    Barrie House Pumpkin Spice K Cups

    Arabica beans are blended with the spicy flavor of holiday pumpkin pie. More information.
     
    Dunkin Donuts Pumpkin Favor K Cups

    Grab a seasonal donut when you pick up a box of these! More information.

     
    Green Mountain Pumpkin Spice

    Green Mountain’s medium roast coffee is infused with flavors of cinnamon, pumpkin and nutmeg. More information.

    Get the ground coffee in bags.
     
    Starbucks Thanksgiving Blend K Cups

    Starbucks doesn’t have a pumpkin-flavored coffee, but produces a Thanksgiving Blend they describe as a “rich fall brew [that] features herbal notes with Sumatran beans and elegant soft spice from the coffee of Guatemala’s Antigua region. You’ll find it pairs well with the entire Thanksgiving meal, from savory turkey to sweet pumpkin pie.” It’s certified OU kosher. More information.
     
    Seasonal Sampler

    You can get a 30-count K-Cup assortment of holiday and winter cappuccino, chai, cider, coffee and tea from different brewers. Check out the Brewers Variety Pack Sampler with K-Cups from Brooklyn Beans, Crazy Cups, Green Mountain, Grove Square, Twinings and others.
     
    Consider holiday K-Cups as a gift for your favorite Keurig owner.
     
    FOR TEA DRINKERS

    Take a look at Harney & Sons for delicious holiday teas and gift sets.

    There are also two good candidates that are enjoyed year-round, but have notes of holiday spices:

  • Constant Comment, a very popular brand that is blended with sweet spices and orange peel
  • Masala chai, the generic term for Indian spiced tea, which is usually shortened to “chai” in the U.S.
  •  
    We think we’ll make a cup right now.
