Cooking Light Selects Cravebox

IMG_3315

Spices and snacks? You are so speaking my language.

First and foremost, I gave away the artificial sweetener. If I’m gonna eat sweets, I’m gonna use real sugar. I gave the fake stuff to people who need it because they CAN’T have real sugar.

I love the McCormick salt free seasonings. With BBQ season coming, that Southwest seasoning is gonna get a LOT of use. 🙂

I am familiar with Stash herbal tea. I keep packets in my desk for when the office is freezing but if I have one more cup of coffee, I’ll launch to the moon.

The Newtons I put in my daughter’s snack bag. I take their disappearance to mean they’re good. XD

The Zone bars I haven’t tried yet. I wager they taste like every other ‘health’ bar I eat. *shrugs* Nothing to really write home about.

As for the Pop Chips? Those were really good. They were just spicy enough to make them interesting and salty enough to satisfy the craving for salty/crunchy. I would totally buy those.

Cooking Light Cravebox

 

It came in a pretty cool box which I could totally see reusing for something else. However, I did the right thing and threw it out so I don’t add to the clutter I’m trying to clean. XD

 

I think this is a pretty awesome selection. My daughter LOVES the Dole cups so that’s a purchase I’ll be making in the future. As fate would have it, we have converted to a Keurig household so the Tully’s coffee I may give away unless I can get one of those refillable cups for the machine. The garlic seasoning is FANTASTIC on fish and I’m happy it’s salt free since I have a sad addiction to salt. The syrup I’m sure I can find a use for but I’m not happy with the fake sweetener. I’m not a fan of any fake sugar, I prefer to us Sugar in the Raw or plain white sugar. If I’m gonna sin, I sin; I use real sugar and real butter when the case calls for it. If I wanna cut down on these things, I don’t eat the foods that contain them.

All in all, I find the contents of this box fitting with what Cooking Light stands for. I do subscribe to the magazine so it was cool to see a box themed for it. 🙂 I put the conversion magnet right on the fridge for when I need it as that will really come in handy for all the baking I do during the holidays. I’m glad to have the spare seasonings and snacks.
