Try it Tuesday.....Emerald Cocoa Roast Almonds 100 Calorie Pack

Have I mentioned how much I loooove Target? I think I could live there quite happily. I'm always finding just what I need there and just what I love. They have so many things that are my style. From socks to shoes to snacks. Now that my local store has a grocery section, I can try lots of goodies.

Recently, I found Emerald Cocoa Roast Almonds. In a 100 calorie pack no less! When I saw that it said, dark chocolate, I was a bit skeptical. I'm not really into dark chocolate. I find it to be bitter. I took a chance and bought them anyway. It was in my favor this time because I really liked these almonds!

The chocolate is a dusting on the almonds. What I like about them is that there is no powdery residue that sticks to your fingers. It's not bitter at all either. It says dark chocolate, but it's actually just a light taste of cocoa. It reminds me of hot cocoa mix. Almost like they dipped the almond in it.

I love almonds. They are my favorite. I love chocolate dipped almonds, but hate the calories that comes with those babies. These Emerald Cocoa Roast almonds are a nice alternative. Actually, I was at a hockey game last weekend and the kids bought some big chocolate dipped almonds. I ate some, but quickly realized that I would have been just as happy eating these Cocoa Roast almonds. I think I'll keep a package or 2 in my purse or diaper bag. Because they come in 100 calorie packs, I will buy them often from now on. I totally love how they are only 2 WW points and very satisfying. Go try them and let me know what YOU think.

*Your Reviews Please*

I am in need of your reviews for the Scrubbing Bubbles Automatic Shower Cleaner system! I'm a Bzz Agent and they recently shipped me my own kit to use. We set it up and have been using it for a couple weeks now. I can't say I notice too much action from it though! I still see white soap scum on my shower door. I thought it was supposed to tackle that? And no, it wasn't there before. This is new scum since we started using the automatic cleaner. Hmmm. I'm not sure if I like this product. I really would like someone else's opinion that uses the Scrubbing Bubbles Automatic Shower Cleaner. Help!

Oh, and if you would like coupons to purchase your own system, let me know (email me at LDSLanie @ gmail dot com) and I will send one to you. I have a few $5 off coupons to be used by June 26, 2009. I believe you can buy the system for about $12-$15 at places like Wal-mart or Meijer.

I am always SO happy to find out about yummy snacks that won't make me feel guilty! Can't wait to try these!

And we gave the shower cleaner a try, but felt it wasn't worth the money. Both my husband and I didn't think it really DID anything. And I didn't like it in my shower. It just bothered me. After a few days, we returned ours. I love the regular old Scrubbing Bubbles cleaner though. I guess it's one of those "If it ain't broke..." things.

I must try these almonds. I am sort of trying the Mediterranian diet.( by sort of I mean I don't think it includes donuts and cookie dough) But anyway, almonds are one of their staples. Almonds plus chocolate should lessen the need for cookie dough right?

I didn't like the Automatic shower cleaner. I didn't think it did anything and it was in the way. Maybe I was expecting too much but it's not worth it.

I might need to try the almonds too. I miss Target.

I love Target too. I could never live somewhere if there wasn't one! I will try those almonds. I have heard that a small handful of almonds about 20-30 minutes before a meal helps to fill you up so you eat less. They are a great snack and getting your chocolate fix at the same time is a good thing, in my book!

Haven't tried that cleaner but Sheri has one. Maybe you can get her opinion too.
