Halfpops. You know the best part of popcorn, the kernels that aren’t completely popped? These are a whole bag of precisely that. They are made in Seattle and have beautiful packaging, are certified gluten-free and all-natural.

FlapJacked Protein Pancakes. I actually won a giveaway from She Rocks Fitness and so I was sent them to try…big fan! The nutrition stats are great (200 calories, 17 grams protein, 7 grams fiber), the flavor is great and the ingredients are real.

Sea Salt & Turbinado Sugar Dark Chocolate Almonds. These aren’t anything new, but I picked them up a few weeks ago from Trader Joe’s and they make the perfect dessert/treat at night. Almonds covered in chocolate are still healthy, right? ;)

Nuttzo Nut Butters. I was sent some Nuttzo to try out and I love the ingredient list and nut variety that they use and of course the added benefits that flaxseed adds. (The flax is cracked so you can reap the omega-3 benefits!)

Blue Bottle Coffee. I picked some up at the airport in San Francisco and totally understand the hype. It’s delicious. Garden Lites Pizza Souffle. This egg and vegetable “souffle” is found in the freezer section and contains 2 servings of vegetables, 12 grams of protein and 200 calories. It was SO good! It was a bit pricey, but nice to have for a rushed morning.

Quest Protein Bars. I was really skeptical of these…but I’ve seen them raved about all over online and while I was at GNC picking a few up, the guy working assured me they were really good. Oddly enough, they are so much better when microwaved for a bit. Dare I say it was the closest non-cookie dough-tasting cookie dough product out there? They are low-carb, gluten-free, high-protein and boast a pretty simple ingredient list. (Can only be purchased online and at GNC.)

TaDah Falafel Wraps. Wow. Just go find these in the frozen section! I’m still dreaming about this wrap. This wrap had 17 grams of protein and all recognizable ingredients. (This variety is also vegan, others have feta.)

    So fun to check out the new stuff coming to the grocery store near you! I will have to look for that falafel. I’ve seen the Garden Lites…I will have to try them out!

      Yeah, they have a bunch of varieties and I’ve always picked them up and put them back…I guess I love pizza. :) (Which I do!)

    Okay, apparently they don’t sell the falafel wraps in Wisconsin yet, but when they do, I’m stocking up! They look great!

      I would suggest requesting that your local store bring them in (that is the best way to get a new product in) – they are worth it!

    Totally intrigued by those protein pancakes. I’m going to have to scope them out. I’d be curious to try the banana hazelnut flavor.

    Just an FYI on the Quest Bars, all flavors except the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough are also available at The Vitamin Shoppe (online & in store).

      Oh, good to know, thanks Michelle! (But why no chocolate chip cookie dough? Seems like one of the most popular!)

    Those TJs dark chocolate almonds… OMG. We cannot have them in the house or they’re gone in 0.77 seconds :) On the lookout for Nuttzo and Blue Bottle Coffee!
