Spring Snacking from The Healthy Shopper #healthyshopper

Spring is time for discovering new things and this spring, The Healthy Shopper brings you a snacking feature that introduces a new and unique snack with clean ingredients that’s fun to pop in your mouth and different from any popcorn I’ve ever tasted. They’ve also chosen to highlight one of their most popular and trendy shopping basket items, peanut butter with a coconut twist, because everything is a little better with a hint of coconut!

Hand-picked Spring Snacking from The Healthy Shopper

This spring, The Healthy Shopper has handpicked a fun new snack with clean ingredients and touts the benefits of a creamy nut butter with a coconut twist.  Experts at “Unjunking your Junk Food,” the health savvy duo of Andrea Donsky, Registered Holistic Nutritionist, and Healthy Shopper co-founder Randy Boyer offer a couple of unique ideas for snacking this spring.

This season they’ve taken two conventional snack foods and swapped them for alternatives with all natural ingredients.  The first option, Earth Balance P.B. Popps, is a delicious popcorn coated with oats and cuddled in a peanut butter cluster that make a yummy snack.  These crunchy nuggets are Non-GMO, Vegan, Dairy and Gluten-Free and have 0g trans fats.  “This unique snack option is a “must try,” said Boyer.  Earth Balance P.B. Popps retail for $5.99.

They’ve also taken peanut butter, a traditional children’s favourite, and added a trendy coconut  flavour.  “If you’re crazy for coconut, this one part all-natural peanut butter and one part organic extra virgin coconut oil blend is a tasty treat,” said Donsky.  Earth Balance Creamy Coconut and Peanut Spread is great on toast, in stir-fry dishes, smoothies and even as a warm dip for crisp apples or celery and  retails for $6.99.

But how do they really taste?  Completely amazing!   My daughter thought the Coconut and Peanut Spread to be a weird combination; however, I loved it!  I confess, I am a peanut butter fiend and I love coconut!  Mix the two together and it’s mouthful of bliss.  I have yet to try some in a stir-fry dish and can imagine it to be a perfect addition.  Now the popcorn coated with oats in a peanut butter cluster tastes even better than it sounds!  It is an awesome snack that I truly found hard to share with others.  Scary thing to note:  I could eat the entire bag by myself in one short sitting!  OMG, super yum!   You NEED to try it; trust me.

Both products are available at Loblaws.
