I love picking up new things at the grocery store each week. In the past couple of weeks I’ve found some winners and some duds.
#1 for best taste: Kashi Country Cheddar Snack Crackers
Oh man, are these addicting! They are definitely better than Cheeze-its, hands-down.
#1 for the most expensive item
Craig loves kale chips, but why do they have to be so expensive. Sheesh! These weren’t labeled at the grocery store, but I wasn’t expecting them to be $8.00! They are good though.
#1 largest cracker
I bought these crackers from Costco. I didn’t realize they were the size of both of my hands put together. I do really like them though. The rosemary is a nice change of pace from the other crackers I usually eat.
#1 worst tasting cracker
#1 thing I wasted my money on
I picked up this on a whim at the running store. I didn’t need it. It is nice to add some flavor to my water after running in order to get more liquids pumping back through my body. But other than that, I didn’t think this was anything special.
#1 item I wish was cheaper
These Picky Bars aren’t cheap, but I do like them. And sometimes it is nice not to think about getting the right ratio of protein to carbs post-run, which is why I love Picky Bars. I had this after a long run when I had to rush to get ready and off to my next adventure one Saturday.
#1 most calorie-dense “granola bar”
I picked this up at REI because it was on sale. I liked it, Craig thought it was disgusting, but he really isn’t a “granola” bar kind of guy anyhow.
#1 sweetest item
Oh man this was good, but it was basically a compressed waffle saturated in sugar. But then again that’s what you want mid-run/bike. I had half of this before heading out for a run one morning.
I’m working towards 80 miles this week. Everything has been going quite well. I just completed a track workout tonight that I am already feeling the effects on my backside. I ran some 400s and 200s in preparation for my 5K in a couple of weekends.
Catch ya later!
