Today, the focus of Fun Food Friday is on snacks. Why?
Because I like snacks, and I still have granola bars on the brain. Also, because I just consumed an entire bucket full of spinach and ricotta ravioli for lunch (dinner leftovers), and the only thing that I ever want to to do after eating 5,928 grams of carbs is eat chocolate and take a nap.
Snack research is my only hope. Otherwise, I will surely be found snoring and drooling on my bank statements.
I just discovered the most lovely website, full of gourmet food. Especially snacks. I like snacks. Greater Gourmet has a ridiculous selection of gourmet foods, they sell all in bulk (which I luhhhve), and the shipping is pretty darn cheap. These are all positives in my neck of the woods. I even saw these bars, and as far as I have seen, they are generally not very easy to procure in the US.
I think I just discovered the mecca of healthy snacks. The Healthy Snack Store appears to have everything that one could ever want in the realm of healthy snacks. The shipping prices could be better, but their product prices are pretty cheap, and they offer free shipping on cases of certain products. If you enter coupon code "KAY5" at checkout, you'll get an extra 5% off.
Another fun find today is Shaman Chocolates. They have several varieties of certified organic, fair trade chocolate bars. I am especially intrigued by their Organic Milk Chocolate with Macadamia Nuts and Hawaiian Pink Sea Salt variety. I must get my hands on one of those! The best thing about Shaman Chocolates is that all profits from their sales help support Huichol villages in Central Mexico, which allows them to kept their ancient traditions alive, and ensures their economic survival. Buy chocolate. It's for a good cause. That's my excuse for just ordering the sampler.
At this juncture, the only thing that would make my life more complete than it already is would be if someone mysteriously plopped one of these brownies on my desk. William Greenberg desserts, I don't know who you are, but will you please marry me? And bring me some brownies. Please.
And now, I will go dream of brownies. And chocolate. And granola bars.
That's it. I'm making brownies tonight. Look out postage-stamp-sized kitchen. I'm gonna do some damage on you tonight!
