5 Cool New Products

I spent the whole day yesterday at Expo West, a huge natural foods trade show that I attend every year.  What a sight!  So many delicious new products, as well as many old favorites.  I’m heading back tomorrow to see even more, but here are a few highlights from yesterday:

  1. Barbara’s Peanut Butter & Chocolate Puffins.  Talk about a heavenly combo.  Peanut Butter Puffins have been a longtime favorite of mine, and these may be even more delicious!  The best part is, one serving still only has 110 calories, 6g sugar, and offers 3g fiber.
  2. Stonyfield Organic Frozen Yogurt Bars.  When you’re in the mood for a rich, chocolaty treat, but don’t want the calories of a premium ice cream bar, this treat is for you.  I thoroughly enjoyed the vanilla version I sampled for “market research.”
  3. dehydrated baby foodNurture Me dried baby food pouches.  I’ve always planned to make my own baby food when the time comes, but this product is so cool, and tasted so good, that I would definitely take it on-the-go and recommend it to anyone!  These packets are simply dehydrated fresh fruits & veggies, that you can mix with water, breast milk, or formula.  I tasted a few of them and literally finished off each of my samples — they tasted that fresh and that tasty.  Plus they come in a very eco-friendly form with minimal packaging.  (I never thought I would get this excited about baby food of all things!)
  4. cereal barsTasty Brand Cereal Bars.  These are what I always wished Nutri-Grain bars were, but aren’t.  They taste fantastic, are a good source of fiber, and are lower in sugar than other cereal bars.  I’m so glad Tasty Brand ventured into the snack category!
  5. Ecologic’s compostable detergent bottles. So this isn’t a food item, but I’m so excited about Seventh Generation offering this new packaging for their detergent.  The bottle itself uses 66% less plastic than a regular detergent bottle, AND it’s compostable when it’s gone!  Pretty cool.
