I found a new treat when I was shopping at Home Goods last week -- Dark Chocolate Covered Goji Berries. They're kind of expensive - $7.99 for a 6-oz bag. Goji berries are supposed to be really good for you -- this from WebMD -
"The goji berry is also called the wolfberry. It is a bright orange-red berry that comes from a shrub that's native to China. In Asia, goji berries have been eaten for generations in the hopes of living longer.
Over time, people have used goji berries to treat many common health problems like diabetes, high blood pressure, fever, and age-related eye problems. Goji berries are eaten raw, cooked, or dried (like raisins) and are used in herbal teas, juices, wines, and medicines."
These little guys help with my Raisinets craving. 1 serving of 25 dark chocolate Goji Berries have 140 calories, 8 grams of fat, 19 grams of carbohydrates and 2 grams of protein. They are yummy!
