Chocolate peanut butter poptarts

Thursday, May 23, 2013

Those damn things. I forgot I had bought them. I don't like the same snacks my kids do. I can't stand any of those fruit bites, gummy type things. I am not a huge fan of the multi flavored granola bars. I prefer real granola. Sooo...when I put snacks into their snack basket for the week I don't really feel tempted to eat any of it. I FORGET it is there. Until this morning. Christian, my darling 11 year old, was getting ready for school, and was in a rush and wanted something quick to eat. So I told him to grab a piece of fruit and something out of the snack basket. He grabbed...Chocolate Peanut Butter Poptarts. I had bought them on a whim. They were near the counter on a stand...and new. And my children love peanut butter. And...I hate poptarts. So...I THOUGHT not an issue here. Anyways, we get in the car, and he is munching on them...and then we pull in front of the school and he says here mom, I can't take this in. Half a poptart left in the cellophane. I set it on the seat next to me. When I got home, I picked it up and as I was walking into the house...I smelled it. I wish they had never been invented...because I then took a bite. And, it was delicious. The peanut butter was smooth and tasted really good. And then I finished it. I finished a poptart that I would never eat, hadn't even wanted, and had not made room for in my calories for the day. Thank goodness it was only half a poptart. And thank goodness it was the last one in the container, because now I can't make another and overindulge.

I know you may say half a poptart, no big deal. But it is to me. I do like snacking, and I like PICKING my snack. Choosing which calories are allotted for what. And, now I feel like I have ripped myself off of that choice today. I took away what I would consider a delicious, healthy snack for half a poptart :( Ugh. Oh well thanks for letting me vent. And, by the more chocolate peanut butter poptarts in the house. Atleast until that is the snack that I want to choose for the day.

    I have never seen those and I hope I don't because I would probably do the same thing. Keep you chin up!

    I am glad I haven't walked down that aisle in a long time! I love poptarts and LOVE PEANUT BUTTER AND CHOCOLATE! Luckily Max is stil young enough where he is good with eggs, french toast sticks, banana, etc. He
    doesn't know about poptarts yet!

    I know what you mean about picking your snack. I hate when something tempts me like that. Everyday this week I have NEEDED chocolate. It is calling my name. Working from home it is hard to get away from it. I don't keep hardly any - only for emergency type situations. I curse chocolate! LOL. The older I get, the sweeter my tooth gets. Think the dentist will pull it?
