YummyHealth Snacks Are Yummy! #ad #giveaway

by Michelle M

Michelle, a 5m4m contributor, shares her insights about YummyHealth snacks. While we were paid to promote this product, all opinions remain our own.

With two children in the house who are involved in a lot of activities, snacking is a full time gig in my house.  I feel like I can’t turn around without someone telling me they’re hungry.  While fruit is a great snack sometimes, they often want something different.

I try to be smart about what I feed the wee ones and ensure that it’s “real” food and doesn’t contain ingredients I’m not comfortable with.  YummyHealth has come up with some great snacks that we all love.

The founder’s concept is simple.  So many children in America are addicted to junk food, have bad eating habits, and are overweight.  Instead of just talking about the problem, she founded YummyHealth to create better for you snacks.

They are gluten free, contain no HFCS, and have no artificial dyes or preservatives.  Plus, they have much less sugar and essentially no processed starch.  They are meant to have some redeeming nutritional value.

YummyHealth has started with snack bars, chips, and sodas.  We tested out the snack bars and the chips, and even my cheese fearing son was pleasantly surprised.

The chips come in three flavors – nacho, cheddar, and pizza.  The chips are 99% real Wisconsin cheese, with seasonings added.  They have a great crisp and crunch, and the taste is great.  Mister Man gobbled his down almost faster than I could snag a few to try for myself.

My husband and I thought they were a little salty for our tastes – and there are 550mg of sodium in a single bag – but Mister Man had no such issues.

The chips are sold in boxes of 6 one ounce bags, with your choice of one flavor or a variety pack that includes 2 of each flavor at $14.94 per box (or $13.45 if you sign up for automatic delivery).  That is more than I typically spend on snacks, but I’m happy to pay more for more nutritious food.  I would like to see full size bags as an option in addition to the small snack size bags, but I have a feeling that will come, as the company is still very new.

We also tried out the Yummy Snack Bar in Chocolate Blast.  This is meant to replace a candy bar, and I can see where it would.  It has a soft chewy texture and a great chocolate taste without being overly sweet.  You can also really taste the coconut in it, which may be an issue for some people, but in our family, we love coconut.

I appreciate that is also has flax seed and almond butter (a note for allergies), giving it 100mg of Omega 3s and 8 grams of fiber.  The Yummy Snack Bars are sold in cases of 12 for $33.48 ($30.13 if you sign up for automatic delivery).

It’s so nice to see companies that take on problems our country is facing and find ways to help combat them.  While I wouldn’t feed these to my children every day, I also don’t feed them any chips or candy bars every day – and these snacks from YummyHealth are a far better alternative, which is exactly what they were created to be.
