I have to share

I wanted to entitle this "A few of my favorite things"...I think we have all heard enough of that and it is not even December yet!  However, I keep finding things (mostly food) that are too good to keep to myself. And when I find something great (or terrible!), I have to share...

Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps in Garlic Parmesan-
I am sitting here eating these as we speak (type). Yesterday, they were sampling these at Giant Eagle and I was under the impression that we were to take the entire little dessert plat of pretzels rather than stick our hand in and fish out a pretzel. A few minutes later, I heard the old man say as I walked past, "There's the woman who took the whole plate" Hahah!  Oh well, it was worth it. Regular pretzels don't do it for me, but these crispy little guys burst with flavor and one could easily down an entire bag! Right now, they are 2 for $5!

Dole Orange Peach Mango juice-
Although I order OJ when I go out to breakfast, I never drink it at home. But I am on my third carton of this nectar of the gods. It is not too sweet at all, which is what I feared. I love peach, and it is a refreshing treat I reach for instead of a piece of empty-calorie food.

Tim Horton's Candy Cane hot chocolate-
I am a huge fan of Starbucks peppermint mocha but don't enjoy paying $4 for it. Tim's has put this little 1.49 treat on the menu and it is just as good to me for a smaller pricetag!  After the first sip, I am sure I actually said "ohhhh my God" in the drive through lane.

Max & Erma's tomato mozzarella burger-
I don't mess with a good old "American" burger, but I decided to go rogue this weekend and try this new burger. I got it cooked medium well, which was perfect. It comes topped with a few fresh basil leaves, some small sliced tomatoes (which I don't even like, but I ate them on this!), and a gob of delicious mozzarella. I added a little ketchup and it was divine.

Activia peach or strawberry yogurt-
I have been eating this for several months and have to say...the commercials are true. However, you should not be afraid. It in no way makes me have to go to the bathroom all the time or have any sort of issues. It just keeps me much "healthier" than I am when I am not eating it. I notice that if I skip buying it for a week...life does not move along as it should. That's enough of my commentary on this subject...go buy yourself a few 4 packs and give it a try for a few weeks! Oh, and don't bother with the "dessert cup" version... big disappointment.

Bob Evan's chicken pot pie-
Seriously? I will never make this on my own when Bob Evans is around (sorry Jill). It is stocked with firm veggies (not mushy, not crisp), the consistency of the filling is not too creamy (a big issue I have with almost any food with a filling), and the crust is to Diiiieeeee for. Stop by and get some carryout on your way home!

I also need to add to my previous post on pumpkin foods. My friend Amber brought Baby and I a pumpkin doughnut from Dunkin Donuts. Perfection!
