Special K Chewy Snack Bars Review

Don’t you love the end of the year? The holiday season typically puts people in fantastic moods, there are parties and presents and best of all, Christmas music! The end of the year is a good time to tie up the loose ends from the year you are finishing. I am always trying to get my ducks in a row so I can start the new year with everything in place. I don’t really make resolutions anymore, I make goals. Last year I made a goal to lose weight and I did, with the help of counting macros. I am generally keeping the weight off and I feel really good about how I look for the first time in a long time. I try and plan out my food for the entire day ahead of time, or at least most of the day. When I have a plan I tend to stick to my goals.

Eating well can be a chore at times. There are so many things to eat and drink that it is hard to keep it straight! I love to snack and that is my eating downfall. I would snack all day and night if I could. I like to eat larger meals, don’t get me wrong, but snacking is my jam for sure. When you say eat, I think of ALL OF THE THINGS. I have a hard time reigning in my snacking abilities sometimes. I guess that’s why I was 40 pounds overweight, right??
Special K is launching new Chewy Snack Bars in January to help keep your snacks great-tasting and filled with wholesome ingredients. These bars are such an easy way to snack in a smart way in the new year when you are trying to build a new you!2014-12-09 20.19.23The flavors are:
Berry Medley
Blueberry Bliss
Salted Caramel Chocolate
Salted Pretzel Chocolate

2014-12-09 20.18.28

These bars have ingredients that you can see; rich chocolate chunks, crunchy salted pretzels, real fruit pieces and rolled oats. Don’t these bars look delicious? After sampling them all I truly can’t pick a favorite. They are all great when a certain kind of craving hits me. When I want chocolate, I turn to the salted caramel chocolate or the salted pretzel chocolate. When I want something fruity I turn to the berry medley and blueberry bliss. They each have a flavor that is unique, none of the bars have a similar flavor at all. I have had bars before where they have a general bland flavor with a few toppings. Ick. These are definitely not those kind of bars! Look at the bars, they actually look like the pictures on the packaging! This isn’t a bait-and-switch at all. What you see and expect, is what you get.

2014-12-17 09.52.06The bars are only 100 calories per bar and they will be available at retailers in January, at a suggest price of $2.69! There are 8 bars to a box, so you are getting a lot of snacks for a great price. I love to tuck these Special K Snack Bars in my purse for quick snacks when I feel my blood sugar drop. I also have a few stashed in my car.
If you want to learn more about the new snack bars you can check our Special K on twitter and facebook.

For an easy way to snack in a smart way, try the Special K Snack Bars, you will not be disappointed…unless you drop it on the ground or something and you can’t eat it.

$1.99 for Gas? $1.99 for Gas!!

*I think that it is 1998 outside. I bought gas for $2.19 last week and I filled up for only $1.99 today. What the what?
I don’t keep up with world news, gas news, oil news, local news in any way, so I have no clue what is going on. But I am seriously loving these prices. I wish I could horde gas in my garage or something so I can have cheap gas to use for a few months. Is that a thing? Can you horde gas?

*I have been a little (A LOT) lax about my running schedule. As in, I haven’t really started it yet. I am only a week behind, but I know how important a week can be when you are training to run 26.2 miles. I think I can, I think I can, I think…..

Hands-Free Hipster Jogging Leash Review

I love taking my Bo on short runs with me. It gets him out of the house, he gets exercise, and I think that it makes him happy. After a run he smothers me in kisses and I believe they are thank you kisses. A few months ago I found out that I have a […]


Welcoming the New Year…from Alabama

It was announced on Sunday that The University of Toledo will be playing in the GoDaddy Bowl on January 4. This is fantastic news because the bowl game isn’t over Christmas, forcing me to be away from home. I get a relaxing holiday at home with my family, then I spend three days in Mobile […]
