Special K Brownies

I love chocolate. I could eat chocolate everyday, with every meal and never get sick of it, but being a responsible adult, I know I can’t do that, especially if I want to continue fitting into my pants.

When my package from Special K arrived a few weeks ago, the brownies immediately caught my eye.  The choice between Heavenly Caramel and Divine Fudge was a tough one, but caramel + chocolate really does equal heaven for me, so that’s what I went with.

Before my first bite, I was a bit skeptical. How good could they really be at only 80 calories a pop? Luckily, I was proven very wrong and the brownie really lived up to its celestial name. The Special K Brownies are made with real cocoa, chocolate or caramel chips, and topped with a drizzle of chocolate fudge. Since they are made of the real thing, they taste like the real thing! There’s nothing I hate more than something that promises ooey gooey chocolate in the name and fails to deliver.

Each box comes with 7 individually wrapped brownies, that are just the perfect size to satisfy your sweet tooth without going overboard and the perfect little indulgence with my afternoon, post-work cup of coffee. As someone who sometimes has issues with finishing the whole bar when I told myself, I’d have just a few squares of chocolate, I appreciate that these come in portion controlled packaging. With only 80 calories per brownie, I can’t even feel bad if I do have one everyday.

These are also a great sweet snack for kids. Every time the little man would spot me enjoying my cup of coffee and brownies, he would be right next to me asking for his own.The packaging also prevents kids from going overboard on the sweets, which every parent can appreciate.

The Art of Snacking with #SpecialKSnackBars

I am the mother of a snacker. My little man can go through the day grazing, never sitting down for a meal and be the happiest kid on the planet. Some meals in our house are mandatory (we all sit down together for dinner, no ifs, ands or buts) but for the rest of the day, I am okay with providing him with healthy snacks to munch on.

While fresh fruits and veggies are the number one things I try to get him to snack on, his current favorite snack are Special K Snack Bars. According to Alex, they are chewy, delicious and nutritious.

I love these bars for him because they are made with wholesome ingredients that you can see like, chocolate chunks, pretzels, real fruit pieces and rolled oats. I also love the fact that they are only 100 calories and the chocolate ones taste like an indulgence without messing up your diet. (I’m trying to look good in a wedding dress over here!)

The bars come in four delicious flavors – Berry Medley, Blueberry Bliss, Salted Caramel Chocolate and Salted Pretzel Chocolate. I honestly can’t decide which ones I like the best, but Alex has claimed the box of Berry Medley as his own.

The snack bars are going to be available in supermarkets and other retailers this month, so be sure to keep an eye out next time you are out shopping. Trust me, these bars are worth looking for!

Picking the Perfect Christmas Tree

IMG_7578

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is cutting down our own Christmas tree. With tree stands on almost every corner in NYC, some people don’t see the point in going through the hassle of cutting down your own tree, but to me it’s not Christmas if we haven’t visited the Christmas tree farm. Our Christmas […]

The Importance of Sports Safety with Aflac & Heisman

Any mom with boys will tell you that it’s hard to get through a week without injuries. Since Alex started walked almost 4 years ago, we have been on a never ending journey of boo-boos, band-aids and  ice packs. When he started hockey this year, I was worried. He had never been ice skating before […]
