Just the other day, my children were asking what "a snack" meant. Crazy, since they eat "snacks" all the time. My definition - something you eat between meals when you are too hungry to wait until the next meal.
Their answer - chips, cookies, cakes.... I was super disappointed. Snacks should be complete mini meals. When did they become "treats?"
We recently had the opportunity to sample the True North nut clusters: available in Cashew Crunch, Chocolate Nut Crunch and Almond Pecan Crunch.
These are snacks that fit the bill of - mini meal but also a treat. They are chocolaty and sweet so they are treats, but they also contain protein, fat, vitamins and minerals. They are a nice transition to "mini meals" or a great occasional treat.
I really liked them. They taste great and are very convenient. We brought our packs along on a weekend farm retreat. They were eaten in the car and around the campfire. They come in little chunks - square shape clusters - that are easy to pass between people and there are very few crumbs and no sticky bits to make a mess.
I would definitely buy these again - and I would definitely eat them again. Everyone was a fan (even our resident nut-hater - he preferred the chocolate nut crunch.)
