Snack Well with MadeGood and Good to Go #MBPHoliday20

Thank you to Made Good/ Good to Go for these great snacks in exchange for my review! All thoughts are my own!

Most people who know me know that if I go too long without food, even if my stomach doesn't rumble with desire, I quickly become irritable and unfriendly. Recognizing the need to keep my energy up, my headaches down, and my irritability at bay, I often have snacks easily accessible to me, whether on trips, the office, or at home. The typical selection includes trail mix, granola/protein bars, and the occasional chocolatey goodness.

Lately, I find myself floating between home, the office, and small outings. MadeGood and Good to Go individually wrapped snacks are perfect to throw in my bag in case I am caught waiting for worship recordings or other events. They are also perfect to grab at home in between Zoom calls, phone calls, and emails with their small size! Plain Granola, Granola Bars, and Crisps are also great for breakfast, as I typically don't eat much in the mornings.

MadeGood products are free of nuts, wheat, dairy, eggs, soy, sesame, fish, and shellfish. Snacks are also organic, gluten-free, and vegan! Made Good products also claim that there are 6 veggies hidden in every snack- something that's great for those of us who have an aversion to things green!

Good to Go snack bars are KETO certified, low carb, and high protein. Good to Go Bars are vegan, free of peanut butter and grains, and kosher.

My storage for easy access to on-the-go snacks!

MadeGood makes Granola Bars, Crispy Squares, Soft baked Mini Cookies and Crunchy Light Granola. I received a variety of bars, squares, and cookies to try, including their new flavors: Cookies & Creme Granola Bars and Red Velvet, Snickerdoodle, and No-Nut Butter Soft cookies.

Good to Go solely makes soft snack bars in various flavors, including newly introduced flavors:
Strawberry Macadamia Nut, Chocolate Mint, Blueberry Cashew, Double Chocolate.

If you follow any of my posts at all, you probably know I have a sweet tooth that I have to balance with healthy options. Being at home with easy access to the fridge, oven, and baking products has been fun but probably not the best for my health! I was curious how these snacks would taste, as my experience with health bars often ends up in distrust. I was really surprised at how good the MadeGood and Good to Go snacks taste!

As stated on packing, there are hidden veggies in every serving. The label states that vegetable extracts of Spinach, Broccoli, Tomatoes, Beets, and Shitake Mushrooms are included in the ingredients. The prepackaged snacks also contain Vitamins A, D, C, B, and E as well as iron. Sometimes, when one eats granola bars, the sugar is so prevalent that the bar is too sweet. I find these snack bars.. and even cookies, a perfect balance. They certainly will not be sugary, so if you or your children are used to overly sweet prepackaged snacks, they may struggle at these. The cookies are soft, not too sugary, and taste great. There is no "cardboard" type of taste that can also be prevalent in processed bars and snacks either! I was also excited to see the amount in each bag. Sometimes processed individually snacks have so little in the packaging that one is still hungry after eating them. That is not the case with these- the bars are filling, the cookies are plentiful, and your tummy will be happy!

Evening Snack time with MadeGood cookies!

I knew I would have trouble eating all of these great snacks and was sending a package to my sister, so I threw in a few flavors for her family to try. My niece and nephew are currently home for remote learning, but if they were going to a building, she certainly would throw these into their lunch bags! Full disclosure: my 6 yr old nephew did not like the new Cookies & Creme flavor but was amenable to other flavors. Even my brother-in-law loved the red velvet cookies and he often has trouble accepting the taste of "healthy" snacks as he is picky, much like his sister in law!

As you, your children, or spouses head to the office, school buildings, or to fall practices, make sure that Good to Go and MadeGood snacks are in their bags. These will keep everyone happy- including tummies, minds, and wallets!

For all of the aunts, family friends, and on-the-go grandparents out there, these snacks will also make perfect gifts this fall and holiday season.. whether arriving in a package at the door or in a stocking over the fireplace! Thank you to MadeGood and Good to go for sharing these awesome snacks with me. They will go a long way this fall!
