Skinnygirl - #skinnygirlXinfluenster

 I'm a reality show junky - the housewives being one of my guilty pleasures. The original New York crew is a few of my favs... If you watch, you are well aware of Skinnygirl's creator Bethenny.

In my #refreshvoxbox I received a Skinnygirl Tasty Nutrition Bar in chocolate peanut butter with sea salt. The packaging tells me its 170 calories, 6g of protein with 5g fiber. Not bad... I had a sweet tooth after dinner, still had calories to spare (yes... I'm a calorie counter) so I indulged. And... Yum. I was a little worried about the sea salt as I've had other nutrition bars with added sea salt and they tasted... salty... this was perfect. It wasn't too over bearing on either peanut butter or chocolate and my sweet tooth was a happy camper.

Through February 26th you can buy 5 bars for $5 at Target - and check out Skinnygirl Daily for all of Bethenny's other products and offerings.

Ok, so it's been a while. And....  I'm quickly approaching fifty something and counting (hm.. a name change may need to be in the works?!).....

So I've recently signed up with Influenster and thought it would be fun to blog about the products I receive for free in order to test and give my opinion on.... Fun little package of complimentary items came today. Yipee, who doesn't love FREE??!!

The first thing i opened was the bag of Nacho Cheese Beanitos. Um... Yum! They are a white bean chip, high in fiber, gluten free with 4 complete grams of protein (their words, not mine). What did I love... they are super light and crunchy - I have a fondness for chips... a HUGE fondness. At 140 calories for 12 chips, I can keep them in my calorie count for the day and satisfy my desire for crunchy goodness. What I'm not so sure I'm fond of.... though the Nacho Cheese taste great as you are eating them, it does kinda of leave a lingering taste in your mouth. Can't put my finger on what in the spices it might be... but I do think I need a drink or two of water to help rinse it out. I did also recieve a plain white bean with sea salt - looking forward to dunking those into some yummy salsa!!!

I'm sure their website will tell you where to get your bag - promise you wont be disappointed    #allthatanabagofchips
