Hang in there, we’re almost to Friday:), which means I’ll be on yet another plane for a wedding outside of Chicago =) Woohoo!
Until then, I’ll showcase a little somethin’ I got in the mail last week:
I’m sure you’ve seen these on several blogger webpages by now and so I’m probably not sharing anything too new, but I can at least give you my take
First of all, I love getting goodies in the mail so that’s always a WIN. I also love getting cute little containers, which I will be able to find tons of uses for. Another WIN. And then to find 3 surprises within — all touting cookie dough…well, WIN! The three flavors are Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Peanut Butter Cookie Dough, and Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Dough.
Don’t shoot me for bringing up the “C” word, but these puppies have some calories packed within. They all hover around the 200 calorie mark. That’s fair for a protein bar and for something that is filling, but I found that these were more snack-size, a la something like a Quaker chewy granola bar (which are 100 cals).
I knew I was going to be rushed for breakfast the other day, so I chose the chocolate chip flavor for b-fast on the run. I gotta admit, this tasted 99% like actual cookie dough. Well done Zone Perfect for mastering the flavor! Now I’d like to challenge you to bring those cals down! Unfortunately this was not as filling as my oatmeal breakfasts they boast the same amount of calories. Zone Perfect Protein bars are similar in cals and are super filling. My faves are Fudge Graham and Chocolate Coconut Crunch as seen here
Cals or not, I’m definitely looking forward to sinking my teeth into the other two flavors. This time I’ll eat them as snack
