Tuesday's Treat

Today's treat is one I recently discovered while shopping at Sam's and I LOVE it!  The Sensible Portions Cinnamon Apple Straws are a VERY yummy snack.  They remind me of the cinnamon straws you can get at Taco Bell, but these are probably better for you (although I've never checked the nutrition information on those from Taco Bell).  You can eat 38 of these for 130 calories and the ingredients are all natural.  No preservatives, no trans fat, cholesterol free.  To me they are perfect to take to work for a midday snack because it takes me a while to eat them, they satisfy that craving for something sweet later in the day, and I don't feel like I'm in a sugar coma afterward. 

If you visit the website, you will see that Sensible Portions makes other snacks as well.  I haven't tried any of those yet, but I might!  So far I have only seen this product at Sam's, but the website lists other locations where they can be purchased.



  1. I have these! They are yummy! I have tried the veggie straws (the same brand) and may even like them better!

  2. Okay, then I need to try the veggie ones. I wasn't sure how they would be.

  3. Those look yummy. I like how you say that they are probably better for you than the ones from Taco Bell!!! I am sure they are, but, man, I love the ones from Taco Bell! I will give these a try the next time I'm in Sam's Club.

  4. If you like the ones from Taco Bell, I think you will like these!
