Back with another under 500 calories snack post. Last time we went to Target and found 5 snacks

This time, we made a stop into Aldi’s (probably my favorite market!). And did the same thing.

Finding 5 healthy-ish snacks, with, per serving, calories under 500.

1. Chocolate Chip Granola Bars – 100 Calories Each

2. Trail Mix – 230 Calories Each

3. Elevation Protein Bars – 200 Calories Each

4. Boom Chicka Pop Corn – 150 Calories per serving

5. My/Mo Mochi Ice Cream – 100 Calories Each

And, that’s 5! Have you tried any of these? Do you have a favorite low cal snack?

Where should we go next???

BugOut Bar Cricket Protein Bar Review


A little while ago, I got a DM on Instagram from BugOutBar, asking if I wanted to try out their product.

Full Video Review

A quick check of the page, and, sure. Why not?

And about a week or so later, I get a box of 12 protein bars.

My wife then asked the question, “are these made from bugs???”

Me: “No…. no… ummmm….”

And, YES! They are made from Cricket Protein. I guess I should have done more research into the bars lol!!

But, since they were here, I tried them.

Before the review, a quick breakdown of the calories and macros:

Review

Passed the smell test. Chocolate brownie is exactly what it smells like.

Taste test: It was actually good. While it had the, expected, slight chalky-ness of a protein bar, it still had the flavor of a chocolate brownie (and not a cricket!).

Overall, I give it a 9/10 for protein bars. Especially with it being all natural!

Leave a comment on the video, and let them know about what you thought!

The BugOutBar people loved the video!
