Another week, another sampling of food finds on SiriusXM’s Wake Up with Taylor! We sat down with the team to taste test some of the latest snacks and fads to hit grocery store shelves (or the internet). Here’s what we tried:
Daily Harvest Overnight Oats and Chia Pudding Bowls
If you’re a fan of overnights oats and chia pudding, this is absolutely the company for you. Daily Harvest ships pre-made cups featuring all-natural ingredients like pea protein, chick peas, cacao nibs, etc. in pre-portioned sizes that only require your choice of milk. Serve them hot or cold for a filling breakfast or afternoon treat.
Our consensus: It’s a bit too sweet (thanks to the maple syrup), but we only tried one flavor (Cinnamon Protein + Banana). We were also disappointed to read that nearly 600 calories are jam-packed into one cup, but nothing is artificial (a far cry from Pop Tarts or Cinnamon Toast Crunch) and the flavor mash-ups are extremely unique. We’ll have to try these again before forming a final opinion. Stay tuned!
Sensible Portions Veggie Chips
Pringles’ healthy cousin, these potato-based veggie chips boast lower calories with the presence of sweet potato, carrots, pumpkins, and beets.
Our consensus: Delicious! We’re not sure if it’s because salt and vinegar tastes amazing on everything, but these were one of host Taylor Strecker’s favorite things we’ve ever brought to the show. Quite the bold statement! Fire the Sensible Portions branding team, though. The boring label makes this can look like it belongs in a nursing home.
Terra Sweet Plantain Chips
Terra has made a name for itself with its healthy offering of vegetable chips, serving the famous blue ones on JetBlue. They’ve now introduced two new flavors: plantain and sweet plantain.
Our consensus: They’re just okay. If you like plantains, these chips are for you. If you’re not a fan of the starchy cooking banana, these won’t change your mind. Had we been more prepared and served these with a side of hot salsa, we may be convinced. We do appreciate that they’re cooked with coconut oil, though.
Not to be confused with Bethenny Frankel’s SkinnyGirl line, this 100% organic prosecco with less sugar is making waves in the states after finding much success in the UK. The Skinny line from Thomson and Scott also features a champagne and rosé for all of your basic bitch needs.
Our consensus: The flavor is great! It’s not too sweet, which means it’s the perfect counterpart to orange juice for Sunday mimosas. Cheers to the freakin’ (holiday) weekend!
