Food Review and Fair Time.....

Thursday, August 25, 2011

I tried a few new foods this week that I thought I would share.

Last night I tried Pure Silk Coconut Milk. I love drinking Almond milk so I thought I would give this milk a whirl. It was pretty good although I like the almond milk more. I will probably purchase it again though.

I also tried some new chips at Subway called Snapz Apple Crisps. I was looking for something crunchy to go along with my sandwich and these were right up my alley.

What had me sold on them was the ingredients. Here is what they have in them:

Apples and lemon juice concentrate

That's it..... that is one full apple! The crisps taste and look like dried apple slices. Pretty good and something different.

We are going to have a fair weekend starting on Friday. My hubby and I are going to the Minnesota State fair tomorrow with no kids. (Day Date!!!) Can't wait to try some new foods! Maybe I will take some pictures of what we tried. And of course, I won't be going hog wild because most of the stuff at the fair is deep fried. Lots of water and walking for me.

Then on Sunday we are taking the kids out to Valleyfair. I won't have too much trouble with food there because we will be bringing food and having a picnic. I just hope my "old" stomach can take the rides! I used to be a dare devil but recently took my kids on a simulator ride and I got sick.... yikes!


What new foods have you tried recently? And are you attending any fairs?

    I haven't been to the California State Fair for years...lots of deep fried stuff there too, I had heard this year the new thing was deep fried maggots...tempting, right? emoticon Hope you enjoy the rides w/ no troubles, and get to enjoy something tasty and satisfying that isn't dipped in the deep fryer first! One of my favorite things they had at the fair was the BBQ corn on the cob and the lemonade, simple but so good!

    The Texas State Fair isn't until end of September and lasts about a month. I love going to the fair. Lots of fun to walk around and see stuff. I'm going to stay far from the fried foods because they don't agree with me (even though they are tasty!). :) Have fun this weekend!

    Ah yes! The famous deep-fried Minnesota State Fair! Have fun!! I haven't gone there in a few years but sure do miss the deep-fried cheese on a stick. Now I know that would take up a week's worth of fat grams and a day's worth of calories. But oh so good (maybe I'd actually change my mind now lol). I never got to Valleyfair either this year. Enjoy that as well!

    Yes! I can't wait for the Fair - I'm going next Tues and Sat. I usually drag spouse, dad and sister through Health Fair 11 since my mOm always insisted we do that. I will be getting my bucket of Sweet Martha's as well...
