Grocery Store Findings

Good THURSDAY Morning!

I’m so mixed up this week, I keep thinking it’s a day behind than it actually is. I’m sure it’s because we got back from our trip Monday afternoon- so we both only worked a half day. The good thing is that on Friday I’ll actually think it’s Thursday…but it will really be Friday! 🙂

Anyways, today I thought I’d show you some of my favorite new finds at the grocery store. Sometimes I like to take a little extra time to find some new items & these happened to catch my eye. Of course I threw some old favorites in there too.

And because I needed a model to display my purchases, you know who volunteered 😉 (Ok, so maybe she didn’t volunteer…but the pictures are much cuter with G in them!)

1. Fiber One 80 calorie chocolate cereal

This cereal is SO GOOD! I’m usually not a chocolate cereal fan, I typically stick to Special K with red berries, but this just sounded good. I’m glad I tried it! I don’t eat cereal for breakfast, I just use it in ‘yogurt messes’ (yogurt, fruit, & cereal) – which is what I typically eat for lunch everyday. Yesterday I had a yogurt mess with Pear Chobani, a pear, an apple & a cup of this cereal- LOVED it.

2. Popchips- Katy’s Kettle Corn & Barbeque

I’ve had the barbeque before, which I love, but never had the Kettle Corn. I’m not a huge fan of Kettle Corn popcorn, but Craig is, so I thought I’d pick up a bag for him. Well, I probably should of gotten TWO bags because they are just THAT good! Perfect when you need a sweet treat, but you just want something light.

3. SmartFood Cinnamon Brown Sugar Popcorn

I know, a LOT of snacky foods, huh?! They are just easy to grab during the day when I have a child in one hand, I can grab with the other. 🙂 This popcorn has become one of my favorite after dinner snacks. I am a BIG BIG BIG popcorn lover. As in, I would eat it every.single.day if I had my way. Whenever Craig is out of town & I don’t feel like cooking dinner, I usually eat a bag of popcorn…because I like it that much. (& well, it’s super easy 🙂 ) But I like sweet popcorn too, and this is right up my ally.

4. Chobani Greek Yogurt

This is definitely NOT new, but I CANNOT get over the new pear flavor. You guys, it is the BEST! Please try it immediately if you have not yet. It is my absolute FAVORITE of all time, especially with a chopped up pear in it. Pear obsession, anyone?! 😉

I told Gabriella my favorite was pear, but she kept insisting that her favorite was blueberry.

It’s ok, she’ll come around to the pear side. 🙂

5. Dannon Light & Fit Greek Yogurt- Pineapple

Ok, so it may appear that I am ‘cheating’ on Chobani, but I promise I’m not. Chobani is still my favorite Greek yogurt & always will be. But to be honest, I am not a fan of the Pineapple 2% chobani, it tastes like cheese to me. Weird, no?! I do really like pineapple though, and when I saw this I thought I would give it a try. (& I thought this was the Greek yogurt my friend Jenna had on Instagram the other day, but it’s not. Bummer.)

6. Light Chocolate Silk Soy Milk

I had NO idea they made this! I have had the Silk Pure Almond Dark chocolate milk and really liked it, but when I saw this I knew I HAD to have it. This is EVEN BETTER than the dark chocolate milk…and it’s less calories! Win win 😉

Gabriella was giving it a loving look. IMG_2627

She can’t wait to get bigger & try it.

7. Jell-O Pudding Mix Ins

I have a sweet tooth and it always strikes after dinner. I typically eat frozen yogurt then, but because I gave it up for lent, I have been trying to find alternatives. When I saw these new Jell-O pudding snacks I figured I would give them a shot. The different flavors are Birthday Cake, Oreo Dirt Cup, Strawberry Shortcake & Banana Caramel Pie. I got the dirt cup one for Craig because he really loves dirt cake, especially with gummy worms. 🙂 We haven’t tried them yet, but I’m SURE they are tasty, pudding is always a winner in my book.

There ya go, some of the newest products that I picked up while grocery shopping! I always enjoy trying new things.

And if you were wondering about all of these goofy pictures of Gabriella, this is what you do when your daughter is having a fussy day…make her do a photo shoot. She was NOT having a good day yesterday, she wouldn’t nap & was just crying nearly all day, poor girl. 😦 But whenever I had the camera out she seemed to perk up, at least for a minute. Whatever works, ya know?!

I’ll leave you with a photo of her being extra cute.

Oh how I just love that girl…even when she has a bad day. 🙂

  1. Lots of things I want to try! Your little model is absolutely perfect!

  2. OMG Holly, try the Key Lime Pie Greek yogurt from Yoplait. I put it in the freezer for 5 minutes before I eat it. It’s to die for!

    By the way – My mom and I read your blog everyday. We’re big fans! 🙂

    • Jenna…get ready for nerd alert. I definitely thought I had the right yogurt when I bought this, but then I decided to look on your Instagram AFTER I bought it & was like bummer…that’s NOT the one Jenna had. I really wanted the one you bought, and I will be on the hunt for it 😉
      & I’m glad you still like my blog, even though it’s pretty much turned into Gabriella’s blog 😉

  3. I ❤ Popchips but have yet to try the kettle kind, maybe I'll pick some up today & I SOO need to find that light silk milk! I LOVE finding new, awesome, super yummy goodies!

  4. I LOVE that you used Gabriella to model your favorite products. She’s so stinking cute!
    I am not usually a fan of chocolate cereals either, but became addicted to chocolate chex cereal when I was pregnant and am still loving it. I usually just grab it by the handful while balancing a baby in the other hand 🙂

  5. Catching up on your blog… I love the pics of Gabriella with the Chobani – tell her I love blueberry too. 😉 And it is funny you write ‘cheating’ on Chobani – Fage is on sale pretty often at the Fresh Market and I will occasionally grab a cup or two, and I feel guilty!
