A Chocolate Treat You Can Feel Good About: Shibolim Rice TreatsPosted by foodforthought
It is not typical that I critique a brand two times, but I could not help but promote Shibolim Rice Snacks. from the first moment I tried them, I was so excited to share. The tantalizing snack is not only a healthier choice but sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.
The creators of these non-dairy chocolate or carob coated treats check off many steps on my list of healthy snacking. Firstly, they list all natural products, whole grains and few ingredients. Although the portion size for the nutrition facts is a meager 2 chips, the nutrient quality for a chocolate snack food is impressive. With only 1 gram of fat (0.8 grams saturated fat), 8 mg of sodium, 6.1 carbohydrates with only 1.7 grams from sugar and .22 of dietary fiber and 0.5 grams protein, this is a filling and satisfying snack. I prefer the taste and satisfaction over higher calorie snacks even if it was not a healthier choice.
Unfortunately, the price is comparably high per bag. I believe if more mainstream groceries carry the product the price will go down or go on sale, so request them of your local grocer!
Food for Thought:
Pay attention to portion sizes for even the most “healthful” snack foods. A snack is still a snack so eat it in moderation.
“Talk to the hand that feeds you.” Do not underestimate your power in changing the face of your local grocery store. Speak up to the manager and request these more healthful choices. The more demand, the more supply and that may lead to more sales or a price drop.
