Try it Tuesday.....Annie's Homegrown Organic Honey Bunny Grahams

These little sweethearts are soooo yummy! Not only are they cute as a button, but they taste fabulous. I found them at Target for $2.09 a box. The website says they also make chocolate bunnies, cinnamon bunnies, chocolate chip bunnies and a box with a mixture of plain graham and chocolate. Mmm. I only saw the plain version at Target though. Ava loves them. They are small enough for her to enjoy yet not too big for her to make too much of a mess with.

Quote from the box:
"No icky additives or pesky preservatives!"

It also says it's an excellent source of calcium. 20% per serving to be exact. It has no vitamin A or others to speak of though. :(

The website gives this information about the bunnies:

Made with Organic Wheat Flour (No GMOs)
Made with Organic Cane Juice
Excellent Source of Calcium (20% of Daily Value)
NO Refined Sugars
NO Hydrogenated Oils
0 grams Trans Fat
0 grams Saturated Fat

The bunnies do contain sugar (6 gr) and fat (4 gr of non trans, non sat) per serving. A serving is 30 little bunnies with 130 calories. WW= 3pts. Sadly, there is less than one gram of fiber.

I've seen Annie's brand before (Mac & Cheese etc), but never tried any. So far so good. I'd buy these again.

**Edit: For those who can't have milk or soy...Annie's Honey Bunnies have only wheat, but they are made with machines that could possibly have touched milk or soy and even eggs. So eat them at your risk. :)
***Edit (again)***: I have now tried the chocolate bunnies and the chocolate chip! Wally World sells them all. They are just as delish as the plain honey bunnies. Mmmmm.

I also tried the Archer Farms 100 calorie pack of Organic Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies. Mmm. I can't find an actual picture of them, but trust me, if you saw them on the shelf, you would want to start eating the box right then and there. Archer Farms (Target's exclusive brand) never fails me. I haven't found anything that I don't like yet. I wouldn't say these are chocolate cookies though. They are more like plain chocolate chip. But they rock! I know some of you don't like 100 calorie packs, but for those who do, try these babies. They are way better than the Chips Ahoy Thin Crisps and cost about the same ($2.99 for a box of 5 packages).

Try heading on over to Archer Farms. This link will only take you to the Archer Farms portion of the Target website, but while you're there, you can click on the coupons tab to get a coupon for Archer Farms Cereal. There is also a tab for recipes like chocolate mousse. Sounds yummalicious.

Yay! These are two of my favorite brands. I have always wondered about those cookies and now I am going to snag them for myself. Thanks for being my pioneer! :)

I've tried the honey bunnies too. I like them and the kids love them. Good little snack for kids with milk. I also sent some to Tristan's class for snack time. I prefer them over the Teddy Grahams.
