What’s the worst/best thing that could ever be waiting for me at my door when I arrive home? A HUGE BOX FILLED WITH VEGAN SNACKS. Yeah, that happened to me today—talk about pleasantly surprised. I almost cried… it was a beautiful moment.
Okay, so yes, I’m a very healthy person. Possibly the healthiest person I know aside from the lady that turned me onto the clean-eating path (you can check her blog out here). But every now and then even I have to indulge. The snack gods decided today was the day, and dammit, it felt good.
The peeps at Earth Balance are known for their delish margarine and peanut butter, but they’ve recently come out with some vegan snackies that are likethebestfuckingthings ever. They sent me their Vegan Buttery Popcorn, Vegan Aged White Cheddar Popcorn, Vegan Aged White Cheddar Puffs, and my personal favorite, their P.B. Popps, which are kind of like Cracker Jacks only better!
I had a handful of each (okay like four handfuls of the P.B. Popps, no shame), and then I had to have my partner take them away from me before I devoured all of them in a single sitting. Aside from being processed, the ingredients are pretty clean. The list consisted of about 12 things and none of which made me cringe. As far as processed snacks go, they’re definitely the healthiest I’ve seen. They’re also gluten-free, which is very important to me, and I would not have eaten them at all if they weren’t!
So the P.B Popps came in numero uno for both me and the boy, and we also agreed that the Vegan Aged White Cheddar Puffs were a close second. These tasted like the cheese puffs I used to eat back in the dizzay, only better and better for you (and the animals)! My partner even said they tasted like real cheese, then he changed it to, “they taste better than real cheese, because they don’t leave you with that gross chalky taste.” WIN!
So even if you’re a health food freak like I am, it’s okay to indulge in healthier versions of your favorite snacks sometimes, and these are a good place to start! So delicious! I definitely approve! This is a big deal because I DON’T EAT SNACK FOODS!!
