Review of Wholesome Goodness9:20 AM
There's a new name in yummy, good-for-you foods, and it's available in select Walmarts across the country. It's called "Wholesome Goodness", and we had the chance to sample a BUNCH of the products from the line. Our findings were that this is a high-quality product with unlimited possibility to add variety and flavor to your meals and snacks. Here are our favorites from the review:
Sour Lemon Raisins
These are an awesome variation on the boring raisin. They are flavored with natural lemon flavors and don't have the added sugar that some competing dried fruit snacks have. My kids thought these were their favorites of all the products tried. I have never gotten 2 of my kids to eat raisins, and they gobbled these up. (Note: These are sweet as raisins should be, but because they are infused with lemon oil, they do have quite a bit of lemon flavor. They aren't too sour, but they do really feel like a candy treat. I couldn't believe it!)
This trail mix is different because it is loaded with raisins, almonds, peanuts and sunflower seeds combined with dark chocolate chunks. It isn't salty or greasy, which makes it a good treat for those on a low sodium diet. We enjoyed this as a fruit salad topping (my husband's idea.)
It added crunch and depth to an otherwise-ordinary treat! You could also make a decadent homemade protein bar out of this!
Multigrain and Flax Tortilla Chips
These were very different than any other chip we've had before. They were very thick, crunchy, and had a denseness to them that made them feel like you were eating something with a lot of fiber in it. They were also delicious. We enjoyed them with salsa, and I love that they weren't all broken up in the bottom of the bag like other chips. They held their own pretty well!
There were so many wonderful items to sample, I can't describe them all. Out of all the items we tried, however, we didn't dislike any. Even the chocolate almond drink went over well -- and we usually HATE almond milks!
